Holidays: Perfect for appreciation

We are well on our way into the Holiday trifecta for relationships: Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day. While many will look for monetary gifts to show their love, the truly priceless thing we can give is attention, love, and appreciation.

Since we have so many women who find it challenging to show appreciation for their men (don’t shoot the messenger, I hear this a lot from men), I thought it would be a good idea to share some ways to show that you appreciate the good man you have:

I have never met a guy who does not love a home cooked meal. Yes, we all have busy careers and Scandal shows to catch up on, but a couple of great home cooked meals over the holidays will make your man feel appreciated.

Show him you appreciate him by LEAVING HIM ALONE. At least for a few hours, anyway. Instead of dragging him with you to the stores, why not let some of his holiday leisure time be spent doing anything he wants to do without guilt trips? Absence makes the heart go fonder, right? Win-Win.

Guys, what are things you would like women to do to show their appreciation? When was the last time you made the woman in your life feel appreciated?

Ladies, if you are dating someone special, what things would you want them to do to make you feel like you are appreciated?

Happy Friday!

I almost forgot, it’s that time- Best Blog Awards. I will tally them up giving results at the top of the New Year because I will be on vacation starting at the end of today. Please send your answers to SharmynK@yahoo.com. If I have time, I will log in. Directions are simple because I honestly forgot how we did it in the past.

I don’t seem to remember this ‘Best Blog Awards’ thing. I’ve been around a little while(off & on), but I don’t remember this. So, I guess I’ll try and vote. I already know I’ll get “Most Beloved”. No doubt. And if there were a “Most nicest looking mofo on here, if we could ever get to him” award, I’d win that one, hands down too. Jus sayin.

This will be our third time doing it. I think the last time we did this was about 3 yrs ago. Looking back at some of the nominees, SimpleMan won for worst moniker. That was the last time we’ve done it. Was going through my files looking for my cake recipe when I found the spreadsheet for the awards.

People can be nominated in more than one category, and the one with the most votes will win.

DuShawn ~ if the winner is to be a surprise, which I want it to be, please send your nominations to the above email address…thanks.

Seriously, when we did the Blog Awards, back in the day, the AJC staff actually sent out gift certificates to the winners……

that was during the days when the moderator actually showed up…..would be nice if some of the “readers” voted, since they seem to value our daily banter everyday….what say you, Readers??????

@2C it wasn’t a jab but yes. Just letting you know I’m not buggin over it. Do what you do.

Leggs

Indeed, 2C, the readers should vote too. Email address is listed at 2:32. Do not fret, I promise (which is one of the more important words in the dictionary to me), I will not share your address with anyone. Not only that, I won’t know who you are. Even if I did, I wouldn’t share so don’t let that stop you from voting….my word is my bond. Old school, but true!

(Since so many are on vacation, I may redo this the top of the year when everyone is back at work).

Cutie when did you send me a text, and I didn’t respond?

Reio

Yes, starting the voting a bit sooner would be helpful, although, I’m not sure I’m used to some people here. Some people come and go, and you guys know them, but I don’t. Anyway.

We, here at work, have this co-worker, Ernie. Ernie has a habit of doing something that drives us crazy. He does it in jest, we all know it, but we can never seem to help but fall into his trap.

During the course of any conversation, sometimes questions are asked. Work related, family, spouse, S/O, kids….anything. So, during any given conversation, if he asks a question, and you respond with something beyond what he asked, he ALWAYS comes back with “Did I ask you all that?”, or, “I didn’t ask you that, all I asked was….”. Drives us crazy. His azz just got me.

We were talking, me, him, and two others, about what we were getting our spouses for Christmas. One of the people in this little group is not married. But he asks me what I was getting my wife. I told him that I had purchased a session with a photographer to do just she and I, no kids or grandkids, just us, cause this is something that she has wanted for years. This fugga quickly interrupts me with “I didn’t ask what she has been wanting, just what are you getting her, pay attention.”

That lousy, stankin, two-legged dog gon git a size 13 stuck up his butt one of these days. He’s just joking, of course, but hell, can’t we just talk, for once, without that foolishness? Damn.

Well, looks like Ernie is leaving now. shoulda stayed at home. Didn’t do sh!t but get on our nerves. A lot of people stayed out this week. We can work from home, if we are sick or something. Some people take advantage of it. Azzes ain’t sick, just want to stay home. Funny, they get sick on Thursday and Friday a lot.
