Hey guys, Mr. PBL here. I know a lot of our readers are women, and my purpose is not to offend anybody. Please remember that I am just a guy who grew up in the woods, so please take everything I say with a grain of salt. A lot of guys can think of dating as hunting. “Hey boys, we’re on the prowl tonight! Let’s find us some beautiful women to hang out with.” Like a lion tracking its prey, we think of starting a conversation as moving in for the kill. All that testosterone and mojo in the air makes dating a lot of hard work. We tend to think of marriage as the “kill”. Just like how a lion picks out a prime subject to hunt down and finally acquire, we too pick out a beautiful woman to play this cat and mouse game with until we “lock it down” with marriage.
Hi, Mr. PBL here! Is it ok to be fed up with something? You have been dealing with the same things for so long you don’t know if you can take it anymore. The same smell, the same look, sure it is comfortable, but what about getting out of your comfort zone for a minute and inviting a little excitement. You have had it for so long you just want something new. I mean enough, is enough! NO, I am not talking about your spouse; I am talking about cars and clothes.
I think the more important question would be how short would you go? It is the less obvious things that can get your marriage in trouble. Right? I know when a man gets married it’s like a movie in his head. If somebody asks him what would you do to save your marriage? A scene from an action film plays out in his mind. His wife is being held hostage by 3 bad guys and he envisions himself fighting and beating them to win his wife back and keep her safe. He would reply, “I would do anything to keep my wife safe.” (He has a grin on his face because the thought of him being a hero is still lingering there).
When you are married life gets busy. You have your daily life routine from work, kids, cleaning, running errands, and etc. We sometimes forget to show our spouse how much we love them on a daily basis. Here are some ways you can show your spouse that he or she is still very special to you.
Hey, Mr. PBL here. Ok, get your head out of the gutter people. I am talking about actually sleeping. I can be a pretty deep thinker in the moments before I go to sleep. I was lying in bed and my wife was lying in bed. We were about to go to sleep, but it did not feel like we were going to be sleeping together. It felt like we were going to be going to sleep in the same bed but sleeping separate. I was sleeping next to my wife, not sleeping with her.
Hey guys, Mr. PBL here! Other than keeping the BO at bay, I want to tell y’all how body wash helped my marriage. I was giving the dog a bath in our shower; we have one of those showerheads with the detachable handle so it’s really easy to hose her down. I know I spoil her too much; we give her a bath with warm water in the house instead of just spraying her down outside. My wife does not like this very much because our dog can get very dirty playing around in the back yard. A dirty dog makes for a dirty shower. We agreed that when I give her a bath I have to wash out the tub. I was getting all of the stuff out of the tub to clean it and I put it all on the floor. There was a lot of stuff! I sorted my things on the left and her things on the right. I will let the picture below speak for me.
Parents, do you ever have a parenting moment that you wish that never happened? How about one that you wish you could take back or do-over? Can you remember times that your child was disrespectful? Is there a time that you blurted something out without thinking about it? Can you think of a time that you said something to your spouse and it just came out wrong? Yes, yes, yes, and yes for me! Anyone else? How about if I said just by saying one word, you can change the entire situation.
Hey, Mr.PBL here. I know what you are thinking, “If I compared my wife to a fire truck; she would punch me in the face”. So let me start out by telling you that I am by no means saying that she is as big as a fire truck or looks at all like a fire truck. You have seen her fashion posts and she is a very attractive, beautiful woman. What I am saying is that she operates much like a fire truck, and I am just a big kid at heart.
