Hubs came home last night and was audibly disappointed to see the to-do list, still on the printer where he’d left it that morning, with nothing marked off. So apparently he thought my *laughing* text messages were code for “I’ll get right on it” and didn’t read exactly what I thought of his to-do list on the blog: “To-do lists be damned.” Hmph, good thing I’m not writing for him.
