Project Marriage….In the Bedroom. A trick and a treat.
Now, don’t go all dirty minded on me.
Yes, I’m talking to you.
“We are challenging you all to make a change (big or small) in your bedroom.”
I decided to play a little trick on my husband, because it was funny and because I owed him a trick. Two years ago on Mother’s Day he gave me a trick present, followed up by a real present. The trick present was a toilet paper holder. It has a note on it that said
“For all you do, this roll’s for you!”
😀 very funny and I actually wanted a new toilet paper holder so it was a useful item. He also gave me a beautiful scarf and a hat.
It was a trick and a treat.
Since tricks are things best saved for when they are not expected I waited a while to trick him back. Then two years past. It’s about time that he got his trick back! Right?
My sweet neighbor gave me a gently used, very girly, multi-colored, polka dot comforter and sham set.
A trick was born.
I replaced our current comforter with the polka-dotted rainbow one and fixed the bed up. Since the trick was set I began work on the treat.
My husband plays guitar and violin. We have a desk area in our bedroom that he uses as his practice area. It was very cluttered and he had no music stand for his sheet music. I failed to take a before picture, but the after picture is great!
I cleaned up the area, dusted the desk and brought in a cookbook holder. It’s a special type of holder that allows you to open a cookbook and keep it propped open to a certain page. I hoped it would do the same thing with sheet music, and I was right! It works perfectly! No more propping his music up on the keyboard of the computer.
My daughter and I waited for him to get home.
Called him back to the bedroom. Showed him the bed.
I told him it was a trick.
We showed him the “improved” music area.
He really enjoyed the improvements I made to his special musical space. ❤*Disclaimer* No husbands were forced to sleep under polka-dotted, girly comforter during or after the writing of this post. The placement of said comforter was for entertainment purposes only. The comforter went to our 12-year-old daughter’s room and she could not be more pleased.
