How's your love tank NOW??

"Hey Kurt, how full would you say your love tank is?"

"Maybe... an 8."

I thought for a minute.

"But...remember how I made the bed this morning?"

"Um, yes."

"And I did the dishes. Without being asked."

"Uh huh."

"And then I made dinner. I don't usually make dinner."

"That's true."

"And while I didn't clean anything, I also didn't make a bigger mess. I avoided doing anything productive, just so I wouldn't have to clean up. I mean- so I wouldn't be messy. I did that for you."


"So, how's your love tank now?"

".....You know it doesn't work that way."

"AND I bought you ice cream. "

I stared at him expectantly.

He sighed.

"Ok, fine. It's an...8.5."

I smiled smugly.

"I know."

You're too cute. My husband's love tank only fills from one activity. It doesn't involve cleaning the house!

OK - I seriously need to start having better conversations with my husband... or maybe I just need to be better at remembering them - because your conversations seem WAY more interesting than ours!

I'm pretty sure that I've ruined my husband. I do all of those things on a daily basis & I wouldn't say that he's close to an 8.5 It's probably more like a 6. Wife fail :(

I always ask Matt this and he tells me it's like a 3. And then I reply with, "oh sad day.. I require at least a 6 to have sex." :)

Haha. Nice. "You know it doesn't work that way." That's something I would hear, but not in regards to cleaning, in regards to getting ready for the day. I call it a good day if I never leave my pajamas. He calls it a good day if my hair is done, I'm wearing makeup, and I am not wearing a tshirt or sweatshirt.

This made me laugh. And I could echo the first poster.

I so so so love that book and think the advice there is something every couple should read and internalize.
