Oh well. I don't know if I should laugh or cry. Many things sound familiar. My husband of 28 years does everything I ask him for, but he's very selective in what he "sees" himself. He'll detect the tiniest new stain on his putter, but not the overflowing recycling bin.

We simply avoid most controversies by using seperate bathrooms, closets and even bedrooms (most nights at least - lol). If he leaves his toilet seat up or forgets his new roll of tp, it's not my problem. If he leaves clothes on the bedroom floor instead of putting them on the chair, I vaccuum around them or push them into one corner. If he takes his socks off, turning them inside out or into a solid ball, he'll get them back clean, but otherwise just the same. One thing I have learned: the more I clean up after him, the messier he gets. When I let him feel the negative effects of his own sloppiness, he tidies up himself. Smart, he? ;-)

And that's what I feel is so depressing. How low some have gone. No vision or even the sense of "What we can do to make this our home". In my mind the high expectations are merely an example of the feeling of "I want it all and I want it now". I want this home to look, as realtors love to say, "move in ready". Or in other words, like 'the perfect home'. And not, "Imagine what we can do? I'ld love to paint that wall.." Of course today most wouldn't dream of painting the wall anything but neutral because heaven forbid you forget about that mystery 'future buyer'.
But perhaps we have realtors to blame? For who else would have started this craze? Yes the shows came about. But who are these people on these shows? But granted most are also of that same era and mindset. I guess I'm just glad I'm a part of the era of, "Let's take this house, (thank God the seller's taking all those figurines with her!), and we can redo the kitchen and take out the tub and..."
