Compromise: A settlement of differences by mutual concessions; an agreement reached by adjustment of conflicting or opposing claims, principles, etc., by reciprocal modification of demands.
Compromise: The glue that holds a marriage together...or at least stops you from doing 25 to life.
Thus, the latest chapter in the ongoing saga of me trying to get The Hubs to shake loose of his
old musty pre-marriage crap valuables.
He has tossed SOME into the dumpster (a minimal amount in my opinion).
What we have ended up with is him erecting a wooden garden-shed type thing in the driveway and he is very methodically packing all his
$h!t into that.
I'm not particularly thrilled about it, in fact I fumed for a good 48 hours. Now I'm choosing to look at it this way:
- At least it's out of the house;
- It's more likely to be damaged sitting out there, hopefully to the extent that even he agrees it must GO;
ifhe finally concedes to let me throw it all away, it's that much closer to the curb. Not that we have curbs in this very tiny farm town. But you get the drift.
