So I come out of Jo's with my purchase of two new Spellbinder dies and show them to DH who was waiting for me in the car. He tells me "You've already got that one". I said "No, I don't". When I get home and hand them on my magnetic wall, I find that I did already have that one. Today I exchanged it for one I didn't have (and bought another, shuuuu"

He does pay attention to what I have, maybe more than I do.

I have to wear new clothes 3 or 4 times before my husband notices.

I re-arranged some furnture last month and he never noticed. I finally asked if he noticed anything different and he had to ask "In which room?"

The worst - the guest house is between our house and my son's house that we built for him. Its flush with the front of our side garage so you walk right past it every time you get out of a vehicle!

THere were lights in front and guests always stumbled in the dark trying to get the combination code in to open the door, then they went into a dark room with the lights on the other side.

While we were out of town my son got with our builder (of his house) and hired a contractor to put up two porch lights on the guest house to match the other porch lights across the front of the house and he also wired and put a light switch right inside the door.

Okay - I can understand him not noticing the ones inside, he doesn't go in the guest house - or rarely goes into it.

But... the two porch lights where it was dark before? The builder came over several weeks later and asked how BIll liked them and we told him Bill never noticed and we weren't going to tell him. We were going to wait to see how long it too.

We actually stood right in front of the guest house talking for 30 minutes with Bill facing the lights and the builder fighting to keep from laughing out loud!

It's been 3 or 4 months. He has noticed yet.

I could paint the inside of my house orange and I don't think he'd noticed.

There is a good side to that - no matter how much weight I put on, he doesn't notice. One of our friends said recently, "He still see's you as a size 3 teenager - he hasn't seen you age at all - he just doesn't see it."

That is an advantage. I will always be super sexy to him. So in some ways, is a good thing he doesn't notice things.

I am blessed for that one and I know it!

When I look at myself I see fat and dumpy. And old.

Yet when I'm on the computer he will just sit and stare at me sometimes. I ask him why he is staring at me like that and he says, "Because I just can't believe how beautiful you are. YOu were the most beautiful teenager in the world and now you are the most beautiful woman."

I'm not - no where close, but he sees me that way.

Yes, I am indeed blessed. When I tell him I want to loose weight he tells me to do it for myself if I do becuase he already loves the way I look.

As his former sister-in-law said recently, "He looks at you through the lovestuck eyes he had when you were both 19 and doesn't see that you've aged a day since then."

That is very awesome! He even loves my gray hair!

Henri that is SO sweet. Bless him.

Mother Goose, that made me laugh. I read your post out to my own man and he was impressed. He's pretty observant, but he definitely wouldn't notice if I bought duplicates.

I wish people would stop saying things like this as though they're funny. They aren't. If someone's partner noticing their purchasing habits is literally potentially dangerous, that is a partner who literally needs to be left.

aquabunny...you are right though I know it was said in jest which is okay too. I just hope you are not the one in the actually dangerous situation. If so...there is help!

I'm sure it was all in good fun.

I tease and say my husband is going to kill me if I buy one more piece of patterned paper but truth is, he doens't care. Not even a little bit.

Her comment made me smile and that is why I come to these threads.

And I like that we can all feel comfortable saying whatever we want here - things like that don't bother me at all. This whole thread has been fun.

I've been married awhile. We both do little things that the other one isn't jazzed about. I think it is human nature to comment on these things in or own little ways. It in no way implies a dangerous or harmful situation. It is just two people with different needs and ideas. I think if we (hubby and I) were too alike we would drive each other crazy.
