I was very careful to not say a word when he told me they were too small and I did not offer to go get the larger ones. He started digging around for the zip ties, when he told me they worked fine I just said, "Good." No sense in rubbing salt in a wound...

You can't fool me. You're saving that "I told you so!" for another time when it will have more impact.

I was thinking the same thing. It comes under the heading of pick your fights. This wasn't one.

Humping all these boxes (remember, the 1000 cookbooks must weigh a ton), kitchen gadgets, clothes, etc. down the stairs at the farm, out to the car, out of the car, and into the other house (down in the basement, 50 ft. to the living room to park the boxes of cookbooks until the bookshelves are in place) translates to who needs to go to the gym? That flabby underarm that you watched with fascination while your almost-ready-to-retire teacher wrote on the blackboard in grade school--not happening any more. My biceps are killing me. Where are the friends I helped move? Why is the DH suddenly too busy in the greenhouse to help move me back to the house in the city? What did I do wrong?

I've never understood this being a problem. Just get him his own tube and let him make a mess with his own toothpaste. Of course you might have to hide your tube.

I was just kidding...we've always had our own toothpaste tubes. I think the one he uses tastes like soap.
