Mystery 101

You like mysteries?
I've got a mystery for you -


"Why am I the only one in our house
who can draw the drapes and close
the shades when night time falls?"

It's a mystery to me!

On a somewhat calmer note.
(taking deep, cleansing breaths)

I loved your Comments when I asked,
"How did you meet your husband?".If you want a good read and some
laughs be sure to read what others
wrote.  It was great and you can read
about it HERE.  But please, before
you go, solve today's mystery for me!

Not sure of the answer to your mystery, but I feel certain it's the same reason that I'm the only one who can put a fresh roll of toilet paper ON THE HOLDER as opposed to sitting it on the tank, the side of the tub or on the floor next to the toilet.

I cannot help you with that, its the same way here.

Weird, I have the same mystery at my house, goes along with closing cupboard doors, putting the pots and pans away after removing from dishwasher .... and gee, same tp issues at my house too.

Madi and Mom said...

It happens here too...but in reverse. My hubby will not raise them. Says he can't get them even. LOL

hear you loud and clear.. unsure of the answer...but it is what it is...

The second I see dusk approaching I'm running around the house closing up the blinds too. Makes me crazy to feel exposed in the darkness.

the members in my household have been known to pull the blinds; however, refilling the Cokes into the fridge, that is another matter. When I haven't had one in several days and need a cold one, I often have to go to the garage and get them myself and then wait for them to be cold enough.
It drives a Southern Peach crazy some days.

There are similar mysteries at my house. I am the only person that has the ability to lift the lid of the dirty clothes hamper and place the dirty clothies INSIDE of the hamper, am I the only person mechanically inclined? I am also the only person able to see the empty glasses left in the den. It is a mystery indeed.

I love a good mystery! and we MUST be related via marriage cuz the same thing happens here lol

NanaDiana said...

It is because we are the smartest one living witnin the same confines of the house! xo Diana

Cheri said...

Still a mystery to me and not only that...I am the only who can make the beds, put clothes in the laundry, do any dishes that have to be hand washed etc: etc: So when you find out the answer to the mystery I would be so glad to know.

yaya said...

My hubby is the curtain closer here...but for some reason I'm the only one who knows where the dishwasher is.

BeautifulDees said...

I love your header(ice tea) is my new favorite since I stopped drinking coke.
About your mystery I have the same problem.
Love,Debbie:)

Jeanie said...

I think the answer to the mystery is that they know you will do it so why should they bother....or else the just don't care if they are closed or not. :)

Jill said...

Because we are Moms and we are amazing multi taskers! LOL
Have a wonderful week!

Blessings,
Jill

Mary said...

Or turn off the lights? We live on a busy road, and CH insists that people don't look in our living room window when they drive by. I know I look in people's houses, so I also know he doesn't know what he's talking about!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I've been looking for the answers to questions like that for 40 years! If you figure it out, let me know!

karen said...

I think that mystery is unsolvable.

Shirley Sue said...

Didn't you know??? You're the MOM! Don't even get me started on this issue. I'm thinking nobody else has that part of the brain that is assigned to the tasks that are labeled "MOM".

Bobbi said...

Yea well... that's a mystery for sure. Hope you get it solved. Now I think I'll go over to see that post on how I met my husband. I missed it before...

ain't for city gals said...

Do you know one time I went on strike and didn't do dishes for five days! Well, neither did my husband!!lol...I actually threw them all away...right in front of my husband...I was very calm while doing so..I didn't say a word. There has not been a dirty dish is the sink to this day...

Chatty Crone said...

I am the only one who can change toilet paper rolls, sandie

Just Stuff From a Boomer said...

My mystery ( in a household of me and the Mr.) is who eats all but the crumbs in the chip bag and returns it clipped to the cupboard? The same is true with crackers, milk, soda, etc. Hmmmmm? It's an epidemic.

Kimmy said...

I have a mystery also (I noticed other people are experiencing it also) but why is it I am the only one that always puts a new roll of toilet paper on when it's empty?? Also, why can't my husband use up one "almost used up" roll before grabbing the new one?? UGH

Oh yeah, why is it that my husband can't put his clothes in the hamper but instead, throw it on the floor just feet from it?? UGH lol

Joanna Jenkins said...

If you figure that out please let me know because I have the exact same mystery-- same goes for making the bed :-)
xo jj

Jill of All Trades said...

Yes it is a mystery. Seems the household(s) have a gremlin that goes around and changes the toilet paper rolls, closes the drapes, fix dinner, does the laundry(I don't), makes sure there is milk in the fridge... It is a taken for granted gremlin!

STILLMAGNOLIA said...

That same mystery occurs in my house....along with picking up shoes, putting on new toilet paper, and turning off stuff.

Shari said...

I know what you mean.Like some of the others here, I am the only one in the house who can put a fresh roll of tp on the holder. I'm also the only one who can put dirty dishes in the dishwasher.
Sorry, can't help you, I have enough problems of my own. :)
