Marriage... Sometimes it Stinks! A funny story by Amy at

Marriage can be wonderful at times, then well… it can stink sometimes. I’ve been figuring out my taxes and trying to clean my house while I had no internet. I’m finally back online today! THANK GOODNESS! So for kicks, I felt like writing about something more personal and a bit of fun.

My husband rarely reads my blog because it’s about crafts, recipes and parties which he is NOT interested in at all. So I think I’m safe bringing up some stinky parts of our marriage with you and see if you can relate. (Don’t worry… it’s all in fun!)

I was cleaning out my closet last week and found this blanket. It was hidden. I had forgotten all about it. There is a reason for this that I will share in today’s post.

I hope to hear your thoughts on this topic in the comments section. Plus, I have fun assignment for you ladies out there at the bottom of this post!!

A long time ago on my blog, way back before Facebook, Instagram, Google+ and Pinterest, I used to ask my blog friends to share things about their lives. We would write fun things on our blogs and link to them in our comment sections. It was a neat way to get to know each other while blogging.

After finding this blanket hidden in my closet, I was reminded of the time I asked readers if their husband owned something that they could not part with or really did stink. I wrote about this blanket, which we call Stinky Binky.

Stinky Binky was my husband’s comforter he used way before I knew him. Of all the things to be attached to, this is what he loves! Or used to love until it was buried under my junk in the closet. Which I finally cleaned out… YAY for me!!

Why did we call it Stinky Binky? Hmmm….. I will just say he slept wrapped up in that thing every night and as much as I washed it, I just couldn’t seem to get the stink out. LOL! I have a son too and don’t understand how boys get so stinky?

I love this very old photo of my daughter with Daddy’s blankie. Whoooo… Shewy!!! 

Was it wrong of me NOT to tell my husband that I found his “precious” blanket in my closet? I’m sure I will get busted and he will read this post or see it sooner or later now that the closet is so clean. I guess there are worse things he could be attached to right?

I really can’t say much, since I’m a pack rat and have a hard time throwing things away too! As a matter of fact, I’m writing this in my pajamas which consists of my 1988 Poison concert t-shirt and a pair of old flannel pants.

Poison Vintage 1988 Concert T-Shirt

Holy cow… I just found this shirt for sale online for $75! Maybe that was a good thing NOT to throw out… thinking I should go wash and hang it up now. ha!

Your assignment, if you choose to accept…

Does your husband refuse to get rid of that 20-year-old concert shirt? Or maybe there is a running joke in your house about something YOU won’t get rid of that he thinks is ridiculous! Maybe it’s something your kids or parents own?

Either way, take a photo of it and share on my Facebook Page or tell me about it in the comments here. Let’s have some fun sharing!

  1. My Hubs is the clothes pack rat. His worst is a sweatshirt from the 1996 Atlanta Olympics that he bought in 1995. It is faded and ratty and smelly. He insisted on wearing it for many years until recently. I think I at least got him to quit wearing it. He loves to buy souvenir shirts but has way too many and to many old ones.
