Frank has his flaws
And I happen to know he never reads my blog.
We all know that Frank wants to be in total control. Over the years you have heard my many stories of him trying to gain control and me fighting for my rights. When it comes to decisions, I have yet to have one that he has not changed. So I thought to give him control of the piles of stuff in my sewing room.
At first he would walk around the stuff in his path, barely noticing it like batting at a nuisance bug. The next step was to make the stuff higher. So now he had to move his hip over when he tried to pass by. Now the bug became a fly.
Now he had to actually move stuff to get to the ironing board. A buzzing, stinging bee! And he grabbed the bait!
So I tell him in order for me to "clean" that stuff up, I need to get the rest of the stuff "organized".
Now he is thinking. That is what he does well, he thinks about solutions for things that I am doing wrong. I am waiting for him now to come up with a complete organizational system for my room.
I need a sense of timing about this. If I tossed Carrie into the mix too early, half of the stuff would be tossed out and I don't want that. I need to lure her in at just the right time. So that is my challenge.
I'll admit, Frank does have his flaws, as does Carrie. But if I work it right, I can make them work for me to my best advantage.
