Hello Dr. Laura:
From listening to your program, I realize I haven't been taking as good care of my man as I should. It's a challenge because our kids are 12, 15 and 17, and up later than we are. By the time they go to bed, we're both exhausted.
I'm self-employed, and today, the printer in my office broke. I asked my husband to help me fix it. It took about an hour, but we did it, and we felt so victorious! He mentioned that he deserved to "get some" later. "How about right here, right now?" popped out of my mouth. At first, he thought I was kidding (and I was), but then I thought "why not?" This would be just the sort of thing Dr. Laura would suggest, I said to myself. So, yes, right then and there. I also suggested that we should sneak away at night and do this more often!
Thanks for the inspiration, Dr. Laura. I don't think my husband will ever grumble about helping me again in the future.
Remember, all of you can send me "letters
" too - by email! Just sign into (or sign up for) the Dr. Laura Family - it's free - and tell us of your experiences.
