- Wedding: May 2012
… regarding her husband’s birthday. My fiance and “Steve” are best friends. Sometimes Steve’s wife is completely out of line. I’d like to share this with you all. Kinda reminds me of that email from the Future Mother-In-Law to the bride that went around recently . Please keep in mind that this woman is a SAHM, this pair is very well off, and my fiance travels for a living and is gone 45 weeks of the year. We see each other once a week.
So I was thinking about Steve’s birthday… And something he always asks for in general is TIME. So I thought we could all work together and give him that! He always struggles with material things… And never knows what he wants… But I know he will love the gift of time! What does that mean? Let me share some ideas. So there is always a list of to dos for Steve to work on, and some frustrations that he never is able to get everything done (not that we aren’t crazy busy in general!)
Here are my ideas:
His CAR! His car completed would be amazing. I could have Steve make up a list of things he needs to do to his car… Act like I want him to write it down to get more organized… Then leave for the day or overnight so you can help work on it!
(My fiancé): he misses u!! One amazing thing u could do is surprise him one day (I will help set this up) come over an hang out… And put his stereo/remote start back in his car
(Another Friend): I need help moving couches around. One out of the basement.. One down in the basement.. This in turn will free up some much needed garage space. Could we try to do this before Friday?! Bob… one day on your way home?? I know.. Short notice.
(Steve’s parents): any yard work/ fall clean up stuff would be awesome. Also there is a build up of dirt/grass around the tree in back. I woud like to make a butterfly garden fr him there. That would tie into my present of a year pass to the botanical garden. So for this garden we would need dirt… Butterfly bushes/bright color flowers/ and milk weed. He would love this!
In general: garage clean up. After couches r moved around.
If these things were done I know it would take a lot of stress off his shoulders!! He would love it.
Thanks all!!! Let me know if u guys have any others ideas!
My mind is still boggled about how she’d think Steve would like manual labor and house hold chores from his friends for his birthday.
