It's really not that complicated!!

First and foremost, remember to go HERE and check out my giveaway..... comment, comment, comment....and link, link link....and then comment, comment, comment!! I know, you get it!! Have fun... I can't wait to see who wins and see what they decide to do with it!!
Oh and look, I got my own button (on the right side bar)... I'm so excited!! You know, it's just the little things that excite me.... it really doesn't take much..... why doesn't Joe get that?? Why don't men get that???
That actually takes me into my post today.... My two cents on why women really aren't as difficult as men think we are!! After you read my "deep" insight into the minds of women, head on over to TuTu's Bliss and check out the other cents!!

Women really aren't that bad.... we may have hormones that make us a little crazy sometimes; and we may "lose it" because we get a bit overwhelmed.... but I think if you just give a woman a little recognition and appreciation...a thank you.... then that will calm even the biggest dragon!! Well, at least this dragon (Me)!! I mean really, I enjoy my motherly/woman duties... I enjoy the hustle & bussle of taking care of 4 kids; even when I feel like pulling every strand of hair out of my head... I still look back on the day with a smile!!
But I think I speak for most women here, when I say that there are times (all of the time) when we just want to feel appreciated for what we do. It's not easy....it's a full-time job....on top of full-time "day jobs" that alot of us have!! And geez, would it be too hard for a man to simply say "wow, you really do a good job with the kids"... or "Thanks for doing all that you do".... or "the house looks great today...or "wow, you look great today". And I mean, to say these things even when they are not on the hunt for "action" (if you know what I mean)!!
Men think that women are so complicated...but really we are not... We just want to to hear that we are doing a good job... even if WE already "know" that, it's still good to "hear" it. We want to hear that men recognize that it is a tough job, but we are doing great at it!! I feel like women make the extra effort to tell our men things so that they will feel good....but it is so hard for men to say those few extra words!! Men, listen to me now.... two simple words will take you a LOOONNNGGG way..... "thank-you"...read it, learn it, live it!! :)
Is it really that difficult??

April said...

Agree 100%!

Carrin said...

I couldn't agree with you more! All it takes is a Thank You now and then. It's not that hard to make us happy.

Angela said...

I totally totally agree with you! What I wouldn't give for a thank you now and then? BUT I guess maybe I should do the same for him. Thank you for watching me walk by you sitting on the couch fifty times while I am cleaning the house before YOU finally got up to get the boys something to drink! THERE was that good? lol

My first marriage was to a man that never acknowledged anything that didn't have to do with him. My husband now & forever is just the opposite. He does all those things you said. I can tell you it makes a HUGE difference in my happiness level :) I loved your post!

Mary Teresa said...

It is so very true. Now if I could just convince my husband that I would be less grumpy if he said thank you occasionally. =D

Tiaras & Tantrums said...

yeah!! I wish my husband would get a fricking clue - he has none! I swear not having a sister ruined him - really - AND an Eastern European mother!

My husband is such a smart man.....he is very good about appreciating me, and in turn, let's just say I'm very good to him. :ahem: My first husband? Just didn't get it. Literally and figuratively. heh
