Yesterday my husband mowed our (fairly large) yard, sprayed weeds, filled a huge hole (where my son had removed a tree stump) and generally puttered around in the garden.
I knew when he got done he’d be tired, hungry and dirty.
It wasn’t a hard equation to realize that he would want to take a shower, eat a meal and take it a bit easy for the rest of the evening.
So I broke off my day’s work early enough to fix a meal, take care of the garbage and recyclables (something he normally does) and take care of the critical stuff that needed to be done that evening. I also showered around when he wanted to shower.
This was not a hard thing to do, nor a particularly monumental thing to do, but when you’re sweetie is tired, dirty and hungry it’s certainly a kind thing to do.
Keep an eye on your husband’s workload and baby him as appropriate.
