Special Things

 What special things do you do for your SO when they have been away from home?  like when they come back for R&R, home from a deployment, or from field training?

Special meals? Decorations? Any special family traditions?

I usually make him his favorite things to eat. I also usually schedule a massage for him to have done.

I make my husband whatever he's been "craving" while he's been gone...which has been homemade chicken and dumplings...other than that, nothing more special....

My hubby will be coming home from his first deployment next month. I'm planning to have his favorite beer in the fridge, make him pineapple upside down cake, and take him out to a nice restaurant. Oh and I'll have Christmas waiting for him! Other than that, I'm just planning to let him watch whatever TV/ movies he wants, let him play video games, etc etc. Normally WoW irritates me, but if he wants to play, I'm just going to cuddle up and watch!

So far, my husband is requesting meatloaf on his R&R.  It seems like a strange request, but I really make awesome meatloaf...lol.

i make sure the house is stocked with his favorite foods and drinks, then i make him one of his favorite meals.  depending on where he's coming home from and how long he was gone, i do other things.  like, he likes it when all his clothes are cleaned ASAP after he gets back.  sometimes i'll let him go to bed and sleep until he's rested, if he's been somewhere that he hasn't been sleeping much.  or we go out with his family.  it all depends on his mood and what's going on.

I just make sure he has my undivided attention!!

 

And I try to make sure the laundry room is empty so all his nasty gear can go straight into the wash, there is a clear path to the bathroom so he can take a shower right away and I make sure his shampoo and soap has plenty left for him to scrub a few extra times!!

 

He always either wants to go out to eat (when we have money) or to have a fresh homecooked meal (he doesn't care what I cook, as long as mayoniese is not in it) that isn't a quickie meal (like tacos or pizza... he wants chicken, or for me to have steaks marinaded and the grill ready to be lite for him to cook dinner).

Haha My husband's pretty sad lol, He requests KRAFT Mac and Cheese whenever he comes home!!! I have to make sure I always have that, Mountain Dew, Jack and some Goose lol. So I always go shopping for that, and get also get his favorite chips, then when he comes home its all about him! I let him choose to do whatever he wants... we go out to eat as a family....we'll go out and have a couple drinks with friends... we'll stay home and relax as a family.... Life revolves around him for a couple weeks :)
