In Defense of the Hubby

Dave may leave me at home with the baby on Saturdays to golf. A lot. And his housekeeping skills may leave something to be desired. But when it comes to women's rights...? Eh, he ain't that bad.

You see, while many men wish that Michelle Wie would just stick to the LPGA like a good little female golfer (*pat head, 'run along now...'*), Dave actually hopes that she makes history today by becoming the first woman to qualify for the U.S. Open.

And the fact that he thinks that way, I think, is very cool.

Cool enough to forgive the last five Saturdays he left me to go golfing?

Perhaps. But just this once.

You, my dear, are a *very* forgiving lady.

I mean, I'm down with the knowledge that your husband is all ERA friendly and s**t, but -- dude? Methinks you haven't *quite* rung the point home that things aren't as fair and balanced at home (ew, that just reminded of Faux News. groooossss. sorry.) on the weekends. Therefore, I highly reccomend a shopping trip. Better make it one in Portland (I know from my trip to yer neck o' the woods lately that P-town is a very reasonable 600-ish miles' distance). Yes. Stay at the Hotel Lucia, 'cause it's super-cute, and shop the Pearl 'til you're forced to stop for much liquid refreshment; and I'll join you, for emotional support, after all the bereavment you've experienced lately.

woah. that sentence is scary long. I'm done hogging your blog. xo

Lildb: I'm totally down for a shopping trip to Portland. But just so I can meet you in person. Yes, I am putting that on my to-do list.

Moobs: LMAO. So you think I'm being taken huh? Interesting theory....VERY interesting...btw: since when are you a MAN? How did I miss that? OK, I need to give your site a closer look now. But you are a welcome visitor here. I think the only male reader I've had, which means you clearly deserve a prize of some sort. I will think on it.

Catch: thank you. It appears that you are in the minority so far. LOL.

Jennster: you crack. me. up!

P.S. Anyone who's reading this, go click on Jennster. She's my renter this week and as you can see by her comment, she is F-U-N-N-Y. You won't be disappointed!

Shopping? Hotels? Liquid refreshments and emotional support?? At least there are some nice perks to life's unfairness and imbalance. :)

Still totally unfair, because that just means he appreciates good golfers, regardless of gender. Okay, okay. I'll give him a polite golf clap for not being sexist.

But I still say that you stick him with the chores and the cherub some weekend and go out with some friends, take a weekend trip, and spend some money, say at least what 5 rounds of golf is in a row (and I know that's not super cheap). Times 5.

You are forgiving. I think I'd be angling for at least a massage or spa day or something.

You are more forgiving than me by far. However I think it's cool that he's supportive of her dream

Oh the life of an avid golfer. At least he is a progressive golfer and an early riser. Maybe he'd take the morning duty shift on Sunday mornings to make up for his passion? Let a mama catch up on her beauty rest!

why don't you take up golf and get a sitter and do it together some day?
