Here might be why shes not ready"

I went out to the motorhome yesterday to clean it out, heres what I carred in the house,
Enough change of cloths to last a month without haveing to wash any, (that is if you put on everything clean every day. (her cloths)
#39 cans of various soups and vegetables.
Baking goods to make at least 6 pies and cakes.
A sewing machine and enough cloth materal to make clothes for a small army.
6 pares of shoes.
I'm tired typing and I am going to stop here.
I must add:
Books (20) would take several months to read them all.
Sorry, but now it sounds like she was ALWAYS packed up and ready to go...?

Heck no:
She has to make sure the house is up to "her: standards:

Shes one of these collecters" never throw anything away We have seperate bedrooms, mine has a "walk" in closet that you can walk into; hers has a closet that when you open the door things will fall out; boxes and trash to the sealing, she has a small path to her bed which is piled with "stuff" she has to remove before she can sleep at night.
We each have seperate bathrooms; same there, mine clean and neat, hers "well" you get the message.
Before each trip she must invantory everything to make sure she hasn't forgot anything; has to sweep her floor, which means she has to move everythig around to get to the floor.
This goes on and on and on.
After waiting several hours and two or three beers; I get to the point I'm not ready to go anywhere.
And my journey begins.
I have to add this:
About ten years ago she had to have one of those computer portable sewing machines; I bought it for her; every trip; she must have that machine with us; I've hauled that machine to every state in the union more than once. (Its never been used).
Yes I do get started on my trips but when I leave I'm a nervious wreck.

Why Some Men Have Dogs And Not Wives:
1. The later you are,
the more excited your
dogs are to see you.
2. Dogs don't notice if you call them by another dog's name.
3. Dogs like it if you leave a lot of things on the floor.
4. A dog's parents never visit.
5. Dogs agree that you
have to raise your voice
to get your point across.
6. You never have to
wait for a dog;they're ready to go
24 hours a day.
7. Dogs find you amusing
when you're drunk.
8. Dogs like to go hunting
and fishing.
9. A dog will not wake you up at night to ask, "If I died,
would you get another dog?"
10. If a dog has babies,
you can put an ad in the
paper and give them away.
11. A dog will let you put
a studded collar on it
without calling you a pervert.
12. If a dog smells another dog on you, they don't get mad.
They just think it's interesting.
13. Dogs like to ride in the back of a pickup truck.
And last, but not least:
14. If a dog leaves, it won't take half of your stuff.
To test this theory:
Lock your wife and your
dog in the garage for an hour.
Then open it and see who's
happy to see you.

Question guys?? I need some advice. How much time do I have? Do I spend what time I have taking care of an unfaithful wife (how much do I owe her?)
I know this is a RV site but some of you guys have been through this thing.

DO I BAIL OR STAY?
Honest guys I'm not making this up.
Well I am sure your are convinced you were perfect during that time and if you were I can only say one thing "Run Forest Run"

WOMEN!... Ya can't live with 'em, and ya can't live with 'em!

(Yes, it's a paraprosdokian... I meant to write it just that way and the word "men" can just as often be substituted for the word "women" ...just to be fair about the whole thing.)
To those who are miserable in thier lives; There are no victims... only volunteers.
Respect and best wishes to everyone.

Your post is a blessing to me. It lets me know that lifetime commitments still can be kept. Congratulations to you both for maintaining and strengthening your bond. You are a shining example of what our Creator wanted for us.

melvonnar,

Sounds like wifey needs an e-reader. Twenty books would fit on one small device. Love mine! Now whether she'd use it is a whole 'nother issue.

A paraprosdokian (pronounced /pærəprɒsˈdoʊki.ən/) is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected in a way that causes the reader or listener to reframe or reinterpret the first part. It is frequently used for humorous or dramatic effect, sometimes producing an anticlimax. For this reason, it is extremely popular among comedians and satirists.
