Just have to Share ..

One of the girls I work with found this in a book - it is originally taken from a book called Home Economics written in 1963 by a woman for other young women ...
"When retiring to the bedroom, prepare yourself for bed as promptly as possible. Whilst feminine hygiene is of the utmost importance, your tired husband does not want to queue for the bathroom, as he would have had to do for his train. But remember to look your best when going to bed. Try to achieve a look that is welcoming without being obvious. If you need to apply face-cream or hair-rollers, wait until he is asleep as this can be shocking for the man last thing at night.
When it comes to the possibility of intimate relations with your husband, it is important to remember your marriage vows and in particular you commitment to obey him. If he feels he needs to sleep immediately, then so be it. In all things be led by your husband's wishes; do not pressure him in any way to stimulate intimacy. Should your husband suggest congress, then humbly agree all the while being mindful that a man's satisfaction is more important than a woman's. When he reaches his moment of fulfilment, a small moan from yourself is encouraging to him and quite sufficient to indicate any enjoyment that you may have had. Should you husband suggest any of the more unusual practices, be obedient and uncomplaining but register any reluctance by remaining silent.

It is likely your husband may then fall promptly asleep so adjust your clothing, freshen up and apply your night-time face and hair products. You may then set the alarm so that you can arise shortly before him in the morning. This will enable you to have his morning cup of tea ready when he wakes.

Words fail me!!!

Feeling of the Day: Does hysterical laughter count?

Lol someone else showed me this recently, I was, and still am, very impressed ... I'd like to think no women were like that these days, but I bet I'm wrong! :)

I knew a young bride once whose husband expected her to get up at 6:00 a.m. every weekday morning and iron him a fresh shirt for work. Hahahahaha -- that lasted about a week. Then he had to iron his own damn shirts if he wanted a fresh one.

No freaking way. I laughed the entire time. A little moan, eh? Ha.

And then I almost cried for thinking of the countless women who actually believed these things for generations...

I know Tracey - I loved it!.

My mother-in-law never forgave me for not getting up to make John breakfast Debra - such a shame

and Gill :)

If I had a blog... said...

Holy Moly... I am a man...and if my my ever followed that logic and instruction (which by the way...hell would freeze over first) I would surely have her examined.

In our household, I cook and iron [and I enjoy both]

As an end note, my Mother was a home economics teacher for 35 years...and sadly she was a little like the book.

Be well,
