I don’t understand my husband sometimes.
There’s just the two of us living in this house. We have three bedrooms upstairs. We only use one of them. Well for the most part we only use the master bedroom. We do keep some things in the closets and dressers in the spare rooms since this is a small house – we need all the room we can get for our stuff.
Lately my husband has taken to leaving things in the two spare bedrooms.
He’s always kept his guitars in what I call the middle bedroom. They were tucked away under the bed so that was fine. The room still looked like a bedroom.
He’s been working on his music lately though so not just one but FIVE guitars are spread throughout the house. One in the living room, two in the middle bedroom and two in the smallest spare bedroom.
Not only that. Sometimes when we’ve done the laundry, but haven’t had time to put it all away we’ll put the laundry basket on the bed in the middle bedroom. Well if my husband gets into the clothes before they are put away he ends up spreading clothes throughout all three bedrooms. He’ll just change in whatever room he’s in.
You see he wears jeans or shorts to work depending on the time of year, and when he gets to work he changes into surgical scrubs since he works in the OR recovery room. He often changes again when he gets home. If he was in pants he prefers to change into shorts for the evening, and being a guy the shorts he wore the evening before are fine to wear again that night and the next and so on.
So that’s how clothes end up lying around in various rooms.
It’s not just clothes and guitars either. It’s his watch, his cufflinks and anything else he carries upstairs that he can’t bother to carry a little further down the hall to our room.
Are all men like this?
