Re: What did you do for your wife today?

what an gorgeous bunch of men you lot are.

Happy Birthday blue.

MrH buys me flowers randomly (and when he is in the sin bin). He cooks us Sunday brekky every weekend. He loves me and dotes on me (as I do for him too). He does so much for me and I appreciate everything he does.

We text a fair bit, some chatter and some downright dirty but today he sent me a text that made me really stop what I was doing and just think about him..... "I am so happy and in love" such simple words but my heart melted.

My husband tells me almost every day that he thinks I'm wonderful, that he's lucky to have me, and that he is happier now than he's ever been before.

He's been saying this for some 20 years now.

Re: What did you do for your wife today?

I would like to add that I make breakfast for my W every morning. Eggs to order, two slices of crispy bacon and a tea. She said she likes to smell the bacon as she comes down the stairs and the blinds are open allowing morning sunlight in. She says it reminds her of her grandmothers home when she was a little girl.

Our water softener is very old , probably doesn't do the best job.. could be a higher iron content coming from that alone..

Not very romantic.. but it's still all in love and for my/ our health.

Woke up early and made breakfast. Got ragged at for a half hour then she left without so much as a thanx.

We did our best to get our stuff out into the cul-de-sac but we lost a lot. We were stressed. A couple friend of ours took our young son in for a couple of days while we stayed in a hotel. I hate to say it, but in those two days, we had some of the best sex that we had had in a long time.

Looking back yes it was a pain, but it was a pain I'd do all over again!

I would say just look forward to when your wife returns. Yes, it is a bummer but it's a temporary bummer. Find a way to make a special moment when she returns despite what you are dealing with right now.

I met my wife in ROK. She was a dependent, i was at Garry Owen. Met her on a trip to Seoul. That was back in 89...still together. We got married over there and she stayed with me in Yon Gu Gol till the riots got too bad and she had to go home.

Jealous. The only thing STBXH did anything is if he was up to no good. Good job guys! I hope your wives appreciate all this stuff and let you know they do. Or, show you.

Re: What did you do for your wife today?

Made a curried chicken/veggie dinner she likes, while she was at a late meeting.
Candles lit, music on, wine poured as she walked in the door.
And yes, sex later on.
At breakfast she mentioned, that dinner, candles, music, wine were the best aphrodisiac.

She was soooo grateful for being able to slob around the house today.

Re: What did you do for your wife today?

SO left lunch in the fridge for me before dashing off to a meeting.

I'm awaiting an appointment with my neuro surgeon (looks like more spinal surgery), and SO never fails to cosset me and try to make my life easier.

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Re: What did you do for your wife today?

My husband buys me lots of stuff, handbags, jewellery, recently a very expensive pen and shoes and before I left for overseas another designer watch ( i already have two which I never wear!). HIs love language is gifts, mine is not.
I have told him him over and over that whilst I appreciate the gifts I am not into receiving gifts at all, I am not mercenary and in fact all this designer stuff goes against the values I subscribe to (envir protection, anti capitalist,) He does not hear me. My love language is quality time, which I don't get.
He has told me I don't appreciate all he does, I do but it does not float my boat the way he expects it to, I do not know how to get through to him.
He loves to receive gifts from me but I am running out of ideas and money as he likes expensive stuff and my salary does't stretch that far.

How do I communicate this to my husband? Wrong forum, but I guess he does this for me and I know some women would be totally thrilled.

Re: What did you do for your wife today?

We have a rather "traditional" home life in that she enjoys cooking, I hate it etc, and I do the typical man-things around the house. It's just how it works out, for the most part. Not in all areas, for example, I do all the laundry, but in-general, it's like the 1950's when it comes to household chores.

That said, the kitchen is her domain, but while she was out last night, I got down on my hands and knees and scrubbed the floor down, vacuumed everything. It was pretty gross being that it had just snowed and needed to be done. She didn't notice. Then got mad that I did it like I was upset that she hadn't been doing her "job" around the house so I just did it myself. I just thought I was being nice when I actually had some free time.

Can't win them all.
