stop everything and give him a great big kiss when he comes home, so that he knows your happy to see him, snuggle on the couch or in a chair with him holding his hand, like hootie said, just a touch here and there, touch his arm, rub your hand through his hair spontaneously, if he is sitting in a chair relacxing you can either sit with him, or on the floor by him and lay your head on him. Give him a back rup out of the blue, rub his neck or shoulders. Any kind of touch helps. I think the no sex things is a great idea. But its alwyas nice to show him you love him in other ways, and it sounds like he is a touch kind of guy. You can also be affectionate with what you say to him, say sweet things, that you are so happy to have him around and in your life, and to drop everything for him as much as you can, the kids can handle themselves for a minute so you can just sit and enjoy him, it will show him you care.
