H has been working on a project out of state for a couple months, and is home for a few days for the holidays. Not one word about the Christmas decorations or tree. Not a word about the artwork I finally got around to hanging up (said he "didn't notice," not sure how when it's RIGHT THERE). Nothing about how I cleaned out and organized the basement. Didn't ask about the new temp job I started this month, or how things were progressing with my application for a huge job. He did, however, point out how he put new TP in the bathroom, brought paper towels up from the pantry for me, took out the trash and fixed something out back (that I couldn't do myself). Tired of men who want thanks for doing basic things, when they don't notice when we do extra. Is it too late to ask for a new spouse for Christmas?
