Things all husbands should know…yet few actually do.
For the better part of my adult life, my diet has consisted of rice, bread, pasta and cheese. If it (or a majority of its ingredients) didn’t come from a can or a box, I likely didn’t eat it. Vegetables didn’t exist in my diet unless they were cooked as part of a casserole, and only then if I couldn’t see/taste/identify them. I was not the pillar of health.
Despite my ignoramus level stupid eating habits, my blood pressure, cholesterol, etc were fine. It seemed that aside from being about 100 pounds overweight, I was healthy (and as big as) a horse. That all changed 3 weeks ago.
I know, I know, I haven’t written in a long time. Life has seriously gotten in the way of many things that I enjoy. Here I am though, writing like nothing has happened because hey… blogosphere. Many moons ago I wrote a piece about getting checked out by a doctor on a regular basis. Keeping [...]
It’s that time of year again! Time to reflect on where your life has taken you over the past 12 months, and where you want it to take you over the next 12. Many people take this time to come up with New Year’s Resolutions that will help them change the course of their life for next year. Whatever it is, it will help if you and your spouse work together on your resolutions.
Alright, the gifts are purchased, wrapped, presented, and unwrapped. The last people have left the last shindig, and the kids are finally asleep in bed. Phew! I know your first instinct is to turn into a TV or computer zombie and let the peace of the END of the Holidays wash over you before the New Year celebrations kick in – but I think that there is one more little ‘party’ you need to attend. The “just me and my spouse” party.
Whether it’s the employer’s Holiday Function, a Latke Party, Cookie Party, or Family Function, danger can lurk anywhere. Not that the December Holidays should sound too much like October, but sometimes ghosts and ghouls would be a nice reprieve from an eternal evening with the in-laws. This is where you and your wife need to have a plan and work together.
Having trouble finding the perfect gift for your wife? We’re here to help!
Since Amanda and I spent two GH-days waxing poetic about the benefits of vaccination, I thought it was appropriate to dedicate a follow-up article to autism. Of course, this not because autism is related to vaccinations, but because it isn’t.
On Monday, when the first article about vaccinations was published, there was a great deal of conversation on our respective Facebook pages, mostly surrounding the issue of the timing of vaccinations, and the potential risks of offering too many vaccinations at one time. A good deal of the information about why physicians, parents, and public health officials might want to consider adjusting the timing of vaccines during infancy came from Denise Shepler, RN BSN. Denise has four years of experience in maternal/neonatal nursing. With her permission, I have summarized her thoughts here.
Today, we want to address how vaccines work as a public health measure; in other words, keeping us all healthy as a community, country, and world population.
Want to know how getting a shot can contribute to your own well-being and to that of the world at large?
This one is going to be short but I think I have been writing some serious stuff lately so I thought I would break it up with a little more light hearted and quick entry. Pleated dress pants are like the mom jeans of the men’s world. I don’t know why they still exist, it should [...]
I don’t always eat well and my exercise regimen is about as impressive as a Dan Brown novel but I will contend that I have a better health view than most of you. Mostly because I visit a doctor for a check up twice a year. My boss once called me a morbid bastard when I told him I [...]
A take on the “work spouse” concept.
What custom suits are for, are people who cannot buy off the rack and those who live outside the fashion box when it comes to size and style.
A quick illustration as to why communication is important with your spouse.
You need to pay attention to how you feel in the suit, both physically and mentally. You should look in the mirror and say “well hello there handsome.”
There are many commercials out there that are based on the idea that husbands are no different from children.
When I go on vacation, I have a few things that I *must* know, and the rest is up to the fates to decide.
Learn the wonders of suit wearing and how to wear a suit instead of it wearing you.
Have you ever wondered why women want their husbands to go shopping with them?
A good gauge in which to measure the strength of a relationship is not only one’s tolerance for their spouse’s cooking.
Ann’s Cheesy Leftover Ham and Potato Soup This recipe is perfect for leftover ham and makes a delicious, hearty meal in itself. Great for cold and/or rainy days, cuddling with your wife by the fire (and it doesn’t have any garlic in it, so your breath should remain reasonably safe too!). You can thank me [...]
There are certain events in life that seem to be created purely for the purpose of testing the strength of a relationship. The most prolific example being pregnancy.
