Haha, that cracks me up! Same with me, BF/DP (whatever you want to call him) does not have the same sense of timing. We are looking at an apartment that needs to be renovated. Furniture needs to be moved from 16 hours away. Baby is due in 6-7 weeks. I'm trying to get all the little things done that we can, while we can. Because once we get the green light on moving, it's going to be nuts! (I wish I could afford to hide out at a hotel).
The direct order thing works, as mentioned above. Now I'm giving him little post its each day with his to-dos. But I have to ask if they are done. It's like they need us to remind them, but get irritated if we do and that equals nagging. Don't they get that we don't want to be the rememberer's of their to-do lists?! Lol.
One last thing to vent- BF and I are in another country and we both need our birth certificates when the baby is born. I told him this in December. Well, he JUST called the agency today after forgetting all this time- even when we were in his country for two months this spring! DUH. I started to think if he can't remember this, I'm not reminding anymore, he just won't be on the certificate!! I mean get some sense of responsibility!! Thanks I had to get that out!
