How to train your Boyfriend
I was always taught that no matter how much you want to, you can never change your man. So many girls try, and end up disappointed or frustrated. It's not that they don't love you, it's just how they are.
Now my boyfriend is a slob. (OK, truth be told, I'm a slob too, but he's worse than me.) However, I've been coming up with ways to make it more livable, without him having to do much.
In the evenings he usually sits in his comfy chair in the corner of the living room, and trash will pile up all around him. (I swear that the corner can look like an episode of hoarders if I don't get to it in time). Now, I've bought a nice waste basket that I placed between the arm of the chair and the bookshelf, so he can throw stuff away (which is what I want), without having to get up (which is what he wants) win win!
He's also stopped leaving the empty ice trays in the fridge. I know he only does this because he doesn't want to fill them. I don't mind filling them, but I hate going into the freezer and finding no ice. So the deal is struck, leave the ice trays next to the freezer when one is empty and I'll fill them. Win win!
Now, I need to figure out how to get him to clean the fish tank... and how not to close the mayonaise so tight that I can't open it.... hmmmmm
