>It is important for men to remember that as women grow older it becomes
>harder for them to maintain the same quality of housekeeping as they did
>when they were younger. When men notice this, they should try not to
>yell. Let me relate how I handle the situation.
>
>When I got laid off from my consulting job and took "early retirement" in
>January, it became necessary for Nancy to get a full-time job, both for
>extra income and for health benefits that we need. She was a trained
>medical transcriptionist when we met twenty-eight years ago and was
>fortunate to land a job at a local transcription house. It was shortly
>after she started working at this job that I noticed that she was
>beginning to show her age.
>
>I usually get home from fishing or hunting about the same time she gets
>home from work. Although she knows how hungry I am, she almost always
>says that she has to rest for half an hour or so before she starts supper.

>I try not to yell at her when this happens. Instead, I tell her to take
>her time, I understand that she is not as young as she used to be. I just
>tell her to wake me when she finally does get supper on the table.
>
>She used to wash and dry the dishes as soon as we finished eating. It is
>now not unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after
>supper. I do what I can by reminding her several times each evening that
>they aren't cleaning themselves. I know she appreciates this,
>as it does seem to help her get them done before she goes to bed.
>
>Our washer and dryer are in the basement. When she was younger, Nancy used

>to be able to go up and down stairs all day long and not get tired.
>Now that she is older she seems to get tired so much more quickly.
>Sometimes she says she just can't make another trip down those steps. I
>don't make a big issue of this. As long as she finishes up the laundry the

>next evening I am willing to overlook it. If I need something ironed to
>wear to the Monday lodge meeting or to Wednesday or Saturday poker club or

>Tuesday or Thursday bowling or something like that, I will tell
>her to wait until the next evening to do the ironing. This gives her a
>little more time to do some of those odds and ends things like shampooing
>the dog, vacuuming or dusting. Also, if I have had a really good day
>fishing, this allows her to gut and scale the fish at a more leisurely
>pace.
>
>Nancy is starting to complain a little occasionally. Not often, mind you,
>but just enough for me to notice. For example, she will say that it
>is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during lunch
>hour. In spite of her complaining, I continue to try to offer
>encouragement.
>I tell her to stretch it out over two or even three days. That way she
>won't have to rush so much. I also remind her that missing
>lunch completely now and then wouldn't hurt her any, if you know what I
>mean.
>
>When doing simple jobs she seems to think she needs more rest periods that

>she used to have to take. A couple of weeks ago she said she had
>to take a break when she was only half finished mowing the yard. I
>overlook comments like these because I realize it's just age talking. In
>fact, I
>try not to embarrass her when she needs these little extra rest breaks. I
>tell her to fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed
>lemonade and just sit for a while. I even offer to have one with her, as
>she may as well make one for me too, and take her break by the hammock
>so she can talk with me until I fall asleep.
>
>I could go on and on, but I think you know where I'm coming from.
>
>I know I probably look like a saint in the way I support Nancy on a daily
>basis. I'm not saying that the ability to show this much consideration
>is easy. Many men will find it difficult. Some will find it impossible.
>
>NO one knows better than I how frustrating women can become as they get
>older. My purpose in writing this is simply to suggest you make the
>effort. Achieving the exemplary level of consideration I have attained is
>out of reach for the average man. However, guys, even if you just
>yell at your wife a little less often because of this article, I will
>consider that writing it was worthwhile.
