To keep it short and sweet, my fiance works a lot of 12 hour shifts as a car salesman. He comes home at 9:30 P.M., is exhausted and seems unhappy this past week.
Today he gets home a little earlier (at 7 P.M.) and I want to do something special to see him smile! I understand he wants to relax when he gets home, but what can I do to surprise him?
I was going to make him a special dinner or take him out, but usually over the weekends they feed him at work.

Ask him if he’d like to have a shower together followed by a massage. Have the oil out and a towel on the bed when he walks in the door.

Mr Rugbee is easy to please: when he’s having a rough week I do his laundry, bake him a cake & give him a nice long backrub. It always cheers him up 🙂

@katiebeary: I can relate! During the past month (well, it’s been going on for awhile, but it really hit hard in March), my Fiance had to finish his thesis so he could graduate. He was putting in some really long hours and definitely sounded stressed out.
Maybe, since he’s working some long hours, he might just want a relaxing night at home. Could you find out from someone he works with if he’s going to be eating there tonight? You could surprise him with a special dessert and have a movie night. Or, if he won’t be able to sit through an entire movie, maybe catch up on a favorite TV show. If the weather’s nice, and you have a suitable place, you could sit outside with dessert or go somewhere (if it’s not dark when he gets home) and get a glass of wine.
I hope this helps! GOod luck with everything!

My Fiance loves going to the movies- maybe you could surprise him with a mid-week movie? You could take a big purse and pack it with his favorite movie snacks! Or bring the movie theater home- set everything up in your living room, snacks, pillows, etc. And have his 2 favorite movies there to choose from.
I think the shower/massage thing sounds awesome as well. Either way, something relaxing but fun. Good luck, I think its really sweet you want to do something for him!

@julies1949: This sounds like a good idea! Even though he’s eaten at work, I know he LOVES it when I make him smoothies. I sent him a text telling him to follow my every instruction as soon as he got home! 😛 I’m thinking a warm shower, drag him into our heated bed, a nice, long massage, make him a smoothie and relax for the rest of the night together.
At first I thought my bad attitude about my job I just quit was rubbing off. I noticed he would only act sour right before he left work and in the morning when he has to go to work. He’s good about being on time, but the past week he’s just been moping around and slow to get to work. Sales jobs are NOT fun! That’s what I just quit. 😛
