Sentimental Items


The cologne in the picture is one of my most sentimental possessions. It was the last thing given to me by a family member that has now gone on to Heaven to live in peace. I have had this with me for many years now. This cologne has been worn on some of the most important days of my life. That’s all that I use it for. I always make sure that they are there with me on my biggest days since they can’t be there in person. I wore it on the day I proposed as well as my wedding day! I think I am down to a few sprays left and it will be used on the day my wife and I have our first child. It’s amazing how something that has little value can provide so much meaning! I would love to hear about other people’s sentimental items and why they hold on to them!

Transition of Arguments from Dating to Marriage

My wife and I dated about 4 years before we finally got married. We had all the good arguments while dating but nothing like the ones we have now. If you are in the dating stages you know all those good arguments. In our day and age half of those arguments came from me liking Megan Fox’s bikini pics on Instagram. (I got smarter when we got married and stopped liking them) I actually made that story up but we have definitely had our fair share of spats that have to do with social media while dating. The truth is those arguments changed the day we said “I Do”. We argue about bigger and better things now. Would you believe me if i told you the biggest fight me and my wife have had since we have been married was a few weeks ago over a RUG? Well its the truth! It is funny how you get married and you start seeing transitions in little things like this! I wouldn’t even call them fights because I find it cute that someone could be that passionate about a rug! Our second biggest argument was about hanging clothes in the closet which brings us to Rule #13!  I came home from work one day and a pile of shirts were laying on the floor. I was confused because I knew we didn’t do laundry. When she got home I was taught the lesson of how to hang up clothes properly: shirts evenly placed on the hanger, shoulders not bunched up and has to be facing the right way! Oh and now we have a cool bucket to where we put the empty hangers in because it is too hard to find them! This was fun! I love learning sessions! (where was this rule when we were dating) The problem here was the next day when she got home from work and a pile of her clothes were laying on the floor!! I mean I am super competitive and how dare she think she is better at hanging her clothes than me! So I showed her I had a problem with the way she did it!! I clearly thought it was funnier then she did. ** I may be a bad husband for this but do I have a habit of instigating my wife with things like this because it really is cute to me**

Marriage is fun and life is short, you have to appreciate all parts of it! I wouldn’t trade it for anything! 

Respect Your Elders

I find it sad that I even have to ask this question. What happened to kids showing respect towards adults. Has it come from all the people who believe it is wrong to spank now, the disengagement between parents and kids because of addiction to technology, whatever it may be it is saddening. We went to eat at Texas Roadhouse this past weekend which happened to be the same night as prom. As we walk in I open the first door for my wife and walk in. There are two high school boys who walk in behind me. As we all walk in the first set of doors the second ones open and it is a very elderly couple walking out. With the high school boys behind me I assumed one of them would stay behind and hold the door for the older couple to exit. NOPE. They let it slam in the face of the couple. I bumped past both of them and grabbed the door for them and told them sorry about that. If my parents had seen me act that way I would have had my butt busted. It almost makes me think is my kid going to be weird because I’m going to teach them to say yes mam and no sir. I know not all kids are this way but it makes me angry that I see more of this behavior than what I would consider the right way. Here is to our generation restoring the norm?

Everything Has It’s Place

In our household perfection is a must! So perfect that some times it becomes bizarre. Fortunately I think the perfection will be changing soon as my wife and I are having our first child! I’m very thankful for this cause maybe he/her will pave the way for me to get some slack.  At our last house we had a little pantry where we kept our cleaning supplies. Well after I would clean I would put the supplies back in the wrong spot. BIG NO NO! Jokingly I said take a marker and draw lines in the cabinet so I know exactly where to sit the items. Well guess what? She actually took me serious! I opened the cabinet to ruler drawn lines where each item would fit perfectly in between there lines!!  I’m going to have to fill in our little one real quick on putting things back properly!

Rules From My Wife

This is for all my married guys! How many of y’all are given little rules that MUST be obeyed around the house? Little background to this story: My wife is very OCD (she has gotten better). I can’t complain too much because since I have been with her we have never had a dirty house. I just can’t get over these funny little rules I have while in the house. One morning I got bored so I decided to write them all down. I got to about rule 15 and just started laughing. If the requests from her weren’t so funny I might actually be annoyed by them. There is ONE rule that holds a higher significance then any of them! DUST YOUR FEET BEFORE BED!!! So before I get in bed I have to dust my feet(swipe them together for 10 seconds so there is nothing on them).  If I don’t do it the sheets will be in the washer the next morning!  A couple nights ago about 4 am I get up and use the restroom then quietly crawl back in to bed. I feel a tap on my shoulder and hear a quiet little voice say “hey you forgot to dust your feet” if it wouldn’t have been 4 am in the morning I probably would have argued with her then laughed about it but I continued to dust them and get back to sleep!! So if I am not the only one who has a few weird rules please let me know!!!

Sales Sales Sales!

I have been in sales for about 5 years now and here is my advice for anyone who is in it or going to start. Success will come when you start selling yourself and not the product. That is what it ultimately boils down to. For me I sell Insurance. Guess what? There are 100 plus other people in this same small town that also sell insurance. Some more then likely sell it a lot cheaper then me. No matter if your selling nutrition, t shirts, hair product, drugs (jk don’t sell drugs that’s illegal) there are going to be several people doing the same thing. You have to be able to sell yourself to the client and make them want  do business with you rather than the girl right down the street.
