Today I’m laying out another sloppy expectation that revealed a heaping helping of my “magical thinking” and irrational idealism back in the day! At the time, I simply thought it was an effective way to communicate my frustration and get my husband to “hop to it!”
This was something that I had seen my mother do, so it seemed like, not only a good idea, but a time-tested strategy! Why mess with generational success, right? I guess it depends on what you call “success” … because in this case it was more of a “successful mess-full!” Check it out for yourself!
