    Lynn’s Notes:
    This last comment was meant as an apology to my husband. I had been spending a lot of time on the road. As well as producing the strip, which took a lot of time, I was working on an animation project, doing book tours and speaking engagements, and was trying to be a partner as well. I loved my job and I enjoyed all the activity, but I felt very guilty about being away from home so often.

    It is important to both love and appreciate one’s partner and make sure they know it. If you don’t take the time to occasionally let them know, eventually they will feel taken for granted, which builds resentment, which undermines the foundation.

    Yes you must tell them they can’t just be expected to accept it. It should be mutual.

    Better yet, write it down on a card and leave it for them in a special place. It’s good to see John rising to the challenge, quite often I think he’s a male chauvinist pig.

    If she was the main bread winner in the family, he needs to just chill. If he was the bread winner, she should have been sorry.

    If I am ever right (hah), she’ll never remember and when I am wrong, she never forgets!!

    Slywlf, Night-Gaunt… very true! A compliment and/or a thank you goes a long way!

    route66paul, it doesn’t matter who earns the most money. Everyone should feel appreciated for what they do.
