    My husband is often concerned as to what he's going to walk into when he comes home from work. He doesn't know what type of day I've had or what mood I'm in, or what he can expect from me.

    So, his idea; I use the kids refrigerator magnets to guage my day from 1-5. (1 is good, productive; 5 is 'Oh God, take me now!')

    I put the number in the upper left hand corner of the fridge, way at the top where the kids can't reach. Husband comes thru the back door into the kitchen, sees the number and knows whether he should ask me whats for dinner or grab a carry out menu.

    Works for us.

    No that is a good idea because sometimes I hate to keep saying I feel like crap and talk about it.

    What a great idea.

    I think I'll take that approach at my house.

    I work and my DH is retired. Maybe I should walk in waving a numbered flag. Or throw a numbered rock through the window before I open the door.

    Not only would he know how I'm doing, but throwing the rock would be a great stress reliever!

    I text my hubby on the way home in the am. I tell him how far away if i am. if i'm not there in that amount of time he comes downstairs. sometimes i text him from the driveway that i'm having trouble getting out of the car. The best thing we ever did was buy cell phones that had text messaging. Neither of us go anywhere without our phone and we are in constant contact with each other. If i need help and he's home he's there pretty quick.
