Hey everyone, it's Labor Day! I'm enjoying my extra day off and Lissie and I are planning on doing something fun that will probably involve a bike ride and seeing something new in Portland we haven't seen yet.
Now, you know the drill.
1. Decide what romantic thing you're going to do for your spouse this week. Could be anything. From as simple as giving a foot rub to planning a romantic date, to planning a romantic vacation, the idea is for you to do something.
2. Let us know what you're going to plan by leaving a comment below. If you want it to be a surprise, then just give a general idea (I'm planning a date), or, if it will help you get rolling, leave as much detail as you want to.
3. Let us know what will motivate you to make sure it happens. Plan a reward for yourself, or plan consequences if you fail, but make sure that it happens! My goal as A Good Husband is to help inspire all the guys out there to go the extra mile, and, even more so, to make sure that I go the extra mile. I want my wife to know that she is incredibly special, and this is a great way for me to do that.
This week, we're going to paint our new apartment. Following Derek Semmler's advice, I'm going to assume that my wife would like it if I helped her get everything ready and then helped her paint and clean up. Assuming all goes well in that department, she'll feel properly loved and appreciated.
Ya know, it might also be a good idea for me to plan something more traditionally romantic sometime soon as well. You know, those getting dressed up going to a nice restaurant, going to a show type evenings? Yeah, I thought so. When's the last time you did one of those?
