So today’s “Simple Thing” is to pick a day to prepare a relaxing homecoming for your guy. Our husbands work so hard, and (if yours is anything like mine) often come home exhausted both physically and emotionally. – So our goal is to prepare a few little things that will help them relax and decompress from their day.
Why not set the tone with a little “Thank you for all you do… I’m so glad you’re home!” note taped to the door?
Does your guy like to soak in the tub to help soothe his weary muscles? If so, have a bath drawn with Epsom salts, so he can slip right in when he arrives. If he’s more of a shower guy, set out some fresh comfy clothes and put a towel in the drier for 10 minutes or so, bringing it to him when he is just ready to dry off. They may be men, but they’ll still appreciate the luxury of a freshly warmed towel!
While he’s relaxing in the tub or shower, fix up a little snack to hold him over ’til dinner. Maybe fruit, cheese, and chocolate? Or crackers and peanut better? Veggies and ranch? Just something light and easy. You could serve it in the tub, or have it sitting on the vanity for when he steps out of the shower.
Once he is clean, offer to give him a relaxing shoulder rub. It doesn’t have to be long, or deep, but a shoulder/neck rub always helps relieve tension.
And with just those few little thoughtful touches, your man will feel special, loved, and extra cared for….not to mention more relaxed for your evening together!
It’s the simple things girls, it’s the simple things.
*If your man gets home before you do, you can still set up a welcome note, fresh clothes in the bathroom, and have a snack all plated in the fridge inviting him to relax for a few moments when he arrives! I’m sure he will be touched by the gesture.
