I'm sure you've all read the lists of nice things you can do to surprise your husband. Most relationship books have ideas on how to show your love in small ways.
A lot of them start with ideas like, "Fill up his car with gas. So he doesn't have to." Those are the kind of things I'm talking about. I'd love to fill up my husbands truck for him, but it's a standard and I can barely drive an automatic. That's one of the great shameful secrets of my life. I can't drive.
Anyway the point of all this is that I'm going to do something special, something extra for my husband for 7 days. And I'm going to tell you how it goes.
#1, Tuesday. It's cold here, still winter, snowing outside. We keep our house cool.
Our room is freezing. For the extra special thing I warmed up his spot in bed so he wouldn't have freezing cold blankets. He saw me and thought it was sabotage. He was sure I did something to it. Maybe thumb tacks under the sheets? Or some thing slimy like cold spaghetti? I don't know what he was thinking. I'm his wife after all. Plus I do the laundry.
#2, Wednesday. I wore contact lenses instead of glasses. And did my hair and makeup. He noticed and said I looked pretty. :):):):):):)
Do you have any good ideas for small surprises? I'd love to hear them, maybe get some new ideas.
