This was apparently extracted from a 1950 Home Economics Book. More of this would make for happier homes, stronger marriages, and better behaved children. That most young women today will think this is misogynistic might be why they're so unhappy.
Ladies... if you're fortunate enough to have a husband capable of providing for a family on a single income, the least you can do is make the man some dinner and not dump on him right when he walks in the door.
Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal on time. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. Most men are hungry when they come home and the prospects of a good meal are part of the warm welcome needed.
Take 15 minutes to rest so you will be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair, and be fresh looking. He has just been with a lot of work weary people. Be a little gay and a little more interesting. His boring day may need a lift.
Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives, gather up school books, toys, paper, etc. Then run a dust cloth over the tables. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift too.
Take a few minutes to wash the children's hands and faces (if they are small), comb their hair, and if necessary, change their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to see them plating the part.
At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of washer, drier, dishwasher, or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and be glad.
Don't greet him problems or complaints. Don't complain if he's late for dinner. Count this as minor compared with what he might have gone through that day.
Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or suggest he lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soft, soothing, and pleasant voice. Allow him to relax -- unwind.
You may have man things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first.
Never complain if he does not take you out to dinner or to other places of entertainment. Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure, his need to come home and relax.
Try to make your home a place of peace and order where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.
I was never a huge fan of Star Wars, but I've always enjoyed the movies. I was a 70s and 80s kid and sure, like most boys from that era, I so very much wanted to be Luke (Mother Effing) Skywalker. But around the time I discovered girls, Star Wars became just another bunch of movies. But today, it seems things are very different. "Just a bunch of movies" doesn't seem to happen anymore. They all need to have a broader message for society... or some such poppycock.
I ran across this thread on Reddit discussing how the latest installment of this franchise has been completely wrecked by feminist/SJW garbage. Given that I happen to like my ass-kicking heroic protagonists to be male, I particularly liked this exchange. (POSSIBLE SPOILERS... I've not seen the movie nor plan to so I don't care.)
ScalierLemon1 doesn't appear to agree with the presupposed observation of the thread.
"SJW cringefest?" I like to think of myself as someone who can see SJW influence in media, but I didn't see any of that when I saw the movie.
Gregorian_Tree is having none of it.
You didn't notice that this rebellion was the first military action you've ever seen where half the soldiers and pilots are female? That the entire leadership cabal was nuked when the bridge was destroyed and they just upjumped a purple haired ship captain to Vice-Admiral and made her commander of the fleet? Where time and time and time again male characters were caught doing something stupid and chastised by female characters? All the diversity insertions? The ongoing Mary Sue we call Rey? The little convo that Holdo and Leia have over a mutineer, where they think he's an idiot and yet they still love him ... good Christ, that dialogue could have been lifted from any of the innumerable sexist sit coms in the last 30 years.
Come on, man, that Mary Sue is a doozy. Rey, who was a junk collector on a desert planet only a few months ago, and who has no training whatsoever, is lecturing and hectoring Luke Motherfucking Skywalker, who has done it all before, including taking down the Empire, as if he's some kid that needs some sense knocked into him? It's like she's trying to convince a toddler to do the right thing, and not the man who redeemed Vader and defeated the Emperor.
Ugh, this was a SJW love fest.
Probably a good reason why I have zero interesting in seeing this. I had forgotten it was even coming out. Yawn.
Funny how so many movies seem to be loved by the critics, but panned by the people.
I was not expecting to drive home today as early as I did or in these conditions. Snowman time!
I find this incredibly inspirational.
I hope that when I'm in my 60s, let alone my 80s, my mental capacity is still fully there and I'm able to continue the general geeking out that I do. I love to just mess around with coding things for good, useful reason, but also just cause I can (e.g. blog.sh). I hope it never ends for me.
Sabo has returned with some street art targetting the protests during President Trumps inauguration. Sabo is the LA based artist who is most known to me for this very cool piece on Ted Cruz.
This latest one is quite appropriate given the content of Trump's inauguration speech.
