…just hand washed his work clothes, socks, and undershirts.
Our laundry has been piling up because we don’t have a washer/dryer in our apartment. There’s a facility across from us, but we didn’t have change to use it for the longest time. Now that I have the change, it’s raining cats and dogs so I didn’t feel like lugging a million loads of laundry up and down stairs all day then outside in the rain.
Fiance had zero socks, work pants, and undershirts. I decided to be the lovely woman that I am and hand wash everything. It was an adventure. I’ll never do it again though hah.
I even used thick towels to roll up the clothes and get excess water out of them to hang dry.
What silly/crazy things have you done for your SO/FI/DH?

@Rouquine: That’s dedication! I’m not sure if I would have done that but probably!
This story is going to make me sound like a lunatic but we had been together about two and a half years and living together for about a year. He told me that he wishes he could have chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate chips. Well we had chocolate chip cookie dough so I hand picked the chocolate chips out and made him a big heart shaped cookie.
Of course he was happy but he was like “Why didn’t you just use a recipe and not include the chocolate chips?”

voted for a republican candidate this past election!
normally I just click the “D” button all the way down, but this time I read a couple platforms (it was a race I actually cared about in my community) and for the first time in my life, I checked one “R” box!
edit to add: It’s not really “for him” but it sure made him giggle– we always joke that we have totally opposite political beliefs, but we’re really quite similar in lots of ways.

@mandb122: Yeah, I think it’s safe to say that I’m crazy for doing it. It wasn’t all that bad, just time consuming.
That’s a cute story though! I probably would’ve said the same as your Darling Husband though. Awfully sweet of you to do it! My grandmother has picked onions off/out of things for my grandfather because he hates them. 😛

@Rouquine: Haha I’m sure he’ll be very greatful to have clean socks, underwear, and work clothes!
I love my Darling Husband so much that I… started playing WoW with him!! Yikess. He would play it alllll the time and it began to be the cause of arguments because he would play for hours on end. I finally just went with the phrase.. if ya can’t beat em, join em! Now we play together =P I’m also super messy but clean/do laundry for him =]

I cut/clean his toe nails. You would understand how much love that takes if you see his feet…

@LoveMySailor1018: =) he owes me big time. 😉 hahaha Oh, and I started playing FFXI with Fiance myself. He loves the game and he wanted me to try it out for the longest time. I finally gave in and I enjoy it. I haven’t played in awhile so this bums him out, but I’ve had so much to do and on my mind.
@cherrydoll: Yeah, I have to say that’s dedication. I rub FI’s feet once in awhile despite the fact I absolutely hate feet.

@cherrydoll: I’ve seen my DH’s feet and that’s enough to know that you have gone above and beyond what any wife should ever have to do!
Darling Husband likes to give me ‘present’s and his toe nail clippings are frequently presents. So gross.
….I’ve tried to learn how to make the perfect apple crisp for him……and failed. Still not as good as his mom’s 🙁
And also learned to be able to understand football so I can be happy/sad a the appropriate times.

@kimbo89: OMG my Fiance is cheese… do not give him any kind of cheese otherwise watch out!
For me is wash his back… when he is showering, I usually just come in, open the door, grab his alloofa(not sure how to spell that word) and then just scrub his back, he’s in heaven when I do that.

@Rouquine: Whoa, that IS love!
I love my guy so much that I make him dinosaur cookies! He realy likes dinosaurs, and is an avid dinosaur comic reader and he loves cookies! So I often make him “dinosaur cookies”. They are just cut out cookies in the shape of dinosaurs, but they take so much work to do since you have to make the dough, roll the dough out, cut it, cook the cookie, cool them down, make frosting and then decorate them! Whew, so much work, but he begs for them all the time. So for him, I have no problem making dinosaur cookies!

@hisgoosiegirl: I love that you’re trying to understand the sport so you know what emotions to show. Hahaha.
@kimbo89: Oh yikes. I know what that’s like.
@couawilou: FI loves when I scratch his back and head.
@sarahbabs: Thank you!
@red dino: D’aw. Dino cookies!! =) That is a lot of work though.

Aww, these are so sweet!
MissPumpkinPie, Props to you definitely, I hate doing laundry! We have a washer and dryer and ours still piles up!
LoveMySailor1018 I started playing WoW with Darling Husband when we were just dating. Those nights we sat up until 3am playing together are some of my best memories.
Other things I do for him, hmm… well I pluck his unibrow for him. He hates his unibrow but he’s too chicken to pluck it himself.
I also wake up 2 hours earlier than I need to every morning just to help him get out the door 🙂 While he showers I lay out clean clothes for him and cook him breakfast. I know it sounds very motherly, but he appreciates it so much! He hasn’t been late to work once since we started living together.
