Barbie, Ken and GI Joe Redux

So why are women drawn to the bad-boy? Could it be as simple as this hysterical 1996 Nissan television commercial – that sums it all up just fine? Barbie, Ken & GI Joe:   Poor Ken-wannabe manly man. So helpless in his sweater around the neck, buffed nails and plastic-coifed hair. Can’t keep his woman…

Love Letter to My Alpha Hubby

Someone once asked me, “Is your Alpha Hubby really the way you portray him?” Yes, yes he is. This song could have been written about him:   They read you Cinderella – you hoped it would come true That one day your Prince Charming Would come rescue you It is kind of funny how we were..

Touch, A Series Part 2

THE GIRLFRIEND’S BOYFRIEND #1 It took me awhile to get back to this series after writing the first post in the Series. I felt, I don’t know, icky, dirty, too exposed, freaked, whatever. It isn’t because I am ashamed of what happened.  It happened TO me, not because I did something wrong. It is just..

Touch, A Series Part 1a

So if you recall our non-trusting girl in the picture above from last week’s post you realize I went into my relationship with Alpha Hubby being quite piled high with luggage and trust issues. Yesterday (TMI coming) right smack dab in the middle of a VERY personal moment with Alpha Hubby, I tuned in to the..

Father’s Day From The Dark Side: He’s Got Rope

So… a Father’s Day blog about Alpha Hubby. I say “dark side” because we aren’t that couple who still have kids at home. We’re on the other side. No more pacifiers and much more stockings, garters and rope (smile). Alpha Son has been out of the house a few years now. We see him often..

Do You Really See Him? Part 1

So the other day Alpha Hubby came in for lunch. We had lunch then, we suddenly decided to dash to the bedroom for some Afternoon Delight. We hadn’t done that in awhile. We giggled, smiled at one another, laughed, looked at one another like we had a secret, and felt like newlyweds the rest of the day…

He Keeps Me Safe

I read a Facebook post by Eric and Pamela Hutchins, a romantic couple who “make you want to puke” (her own words). They are the kind of couple where people (their kids) say “Ewww, you guys! Get a room”. The best kind of couple. Of course it doesn’t hurt that they are a beautiful couple! Eric is..

What’s Not To Love?

(As usual, if you don’t want to hear the oldies music, go down on right side and hit the pause button || ) Every now and again, I will say to Alpha Hubby, “I love you” – and he will reply, “What’s not to love?” I have yet to come up with a viable and perfect comeback..

A Soft, Warm Love Affair

I noted a trait in the past few years. I don’t think it is a good trait but it explains a lot. Some women get a wee bit snarky about what they call “gushing about your man” – a woman’s passionate love for her man. They call it the “gag factor”. Like there is something..
