He Said She Said: What’s Mine is Yours?

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

The results are in for the Pill Popped Debate. I guess I have learned my lesson.  I will never let The Donkey write my side of a debate again! Apparently, quite a few people think it's ok to share medicine between spouses.  I won't be flushing old pills down the toilet anymore ...

He Said She Said: Can A Husband Use Some Of His Wife’s Surplus Medicine?

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

A quick note from The Wife: So, The Donkey is on yet another "Business Trip" (Vacation).  Have I ever mentioned that the trips he takes are often optional, and typically he gets to choose when, where, and which trainings/conferences he wants to attend?  Well, he just happened to find another ...

He Said She Said: The Wife Can Supply Her Son With Knitting Goods

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Boys Just Wanna Have Fun Wow, our last Great Debate we had quite a while ago, and we never posted the results. Unfortunately I took another beating. I never thought so many people would support my son in becoming a knitter. I bought him Legos for his birthday, but I may ...

He Said She Said: Should A Husband and Wife Let Their Son Knit?

Knot For Boys? A couple of weeks ago we bought some knitting kits (latch hook rugs) for The Donkey's little sisters. They had a lot of fun with them, and  spent a lot of time working on them while visiting our home. Our son, Boy Wonder asked if he could have ...

He Said She Said: Wife To Receive Baby Naming Priveleges

Friday, June 20th, 2008

Disgrace We finally set up our Twitter feed (see our announcement below)– and just in time too. Today we find out if we are having a boy or girl. I will twitter the event during the ultrasound. This is a big deal since all of the grandchildren on my side are ...

He Said She Said: Should the Husband or Wife Choose the Baby’s Name?

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

Name Game It's been a while since we held a debate here, but that doesn't mean we've stopped disagreeing with each other. Today's debate is fresh and still unresolved: Who should get to name our next child? He Said My wife is pregnant and this Friday we find out if it is ...

He Said She Said: A Husband Has a Right to Shave

Monday, April 14th, 2008

Disarmed  The votes have been tallied in the Arm Shaving Debate: Well, sad but true--I don't get to force The Donkey to keep the hair on his arms.  I know I can't force him to do anything, but I would hope that he would just honor my preferences.  I must admit I've ...

He said She said: Should Husband Shave His Arms Against Wife’s Wishes?

Tuesday, April 8th, 2008

Up in Arms He Said A few months ago my brother and I shaved our arms. It was partly motivation for us to work out more because it somehow accentuates our arm muscles and partly because I got sick of ripping off the Band Aid after donating plasma – it always hurts ...

He Said She Said: The Wife Deserves a Raise

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

Hunger Strike The results are in for our Great Allowance Debate It's once again clear to me that my supporters did not show up for this debate. I did get feedback that the wording of the question and choices made it virtually impossible to not vote for my wife. Her clever wording ...

He Said She Said: Should a Husband and Wife have an Equal Allowance?

Wednesday, February 27th, 2008

Dining Out Dilemma We are not the richest people in the world; we have enough to meet our needs, and a bit more for extras. We are fairly budget conscious and have spending limits set for various categories--food, clothing, dates, etc. One area that gives us trouble is our weekly ...
