I don’t usually celebrate most holidays. Since my husband and I have been married the primary focus of our relationship has been to keep our marriage amiable (or friendly).  

I think a lot of the time I do things for him, without any request of a proper thank you. He on the other hand does stipulate that I thank him when he does tasks that he would do anyway, for himself had we not been married.

I’m talking about taking out the trash, loading the dishwasher and other everyday household chores.

I really get steamed sometimes, when I do something for him... and I don’t receive a thank you.

Today is July fourth. A holiday here in the States. I did the laundry, and made lunch, and made a part of dinner also. Why is it so difficult for him to let me know he appreciates me? (That’s a rhetorical question... I don’t expect an answer.)

Even when I’m on vacation, it’s not really a vacation for me... there’s lots of things I feel I have to do before, during and after.
