Unrealistic Expectations?

Y'all were so great in sharing my woes regarding my missing flatware. As soon as it warms up I may take Barb's suggestion and look in the back yard, or on "Camp Kid" (the name my children call the hill behind our house).

Until then, I have some other questions I need to ask . . .
These are my top five. I guess maybe if I run out of questions to ask I'll open up myself for you to ask questions of me. I just keep thinking no one would have any questions of me anyway, so why bother . . . you know how that goes.

What do you find unrealistic expectations in your life?

What happens at your house that causes you to say, "I just can't believe they did /didn't do that?"

Let me know.

Until we figure it all out . . . here is truth to fill in that void of unmet expectations:

" My comfort in my suffering is this:
Your promise preserves my life."
Psalm 119:50

Is it unrealistic to
* expect that, if the dishwasher is empty, people should put their dishes IN it instead of waiting for me to do it for them?

* expect my husband to hang up the clothes after he does the laundry instead of dumping them on the floor for me to do later? Sometimes he sorts them into 'owner' piles, but he rarely hangs or folds.

This evening, "Papa" came over to watch a movie with my ducklings (very rare). The kids were starving and begged for him to stay for dinner. Okay, sure, why not? I did it for them.

After dinner, each of my little ducklings cleared their place without being told. I went to wipe off the table and guess whose dishes were still there? Am I wrong to expect him to clean up after himself at this point?!?

Anyway, I chose to count my blessings that my little ducklings have finally gotten that little expectations down for me!

Yes, I think all of your points are unrealistic.....because they never became my reality!!lol...

Trust me, now that we have one out of the house...and our second will follow in 2 years....I honestly MISS...the things that use to drive me crazy!!
sigh :-/

But then again....I'm sure once our oldest returns home in March....all of my expectations...will turn to unrealistic!!! lol

Ah, the woes of wifedom and motherhood! I'm afraid it may indeed be unrealistic! They just sometimes don't get it....and I'm with you that after 55 years, my reactions still surprise me! :)

At my house: is it unrealistic to expect that when the Brita filter pitcher is almost gone after pouring a drink of water that the pitcher cannot be refilled?? it unrealistic to expect that when the toilet paper roll is empty that it could be replaced???? ARGH...those are my 2 major pet peeves among some others!
