I loved the other thread so much ..I thought I’d start this one! And I always need new ideas on things to do for SO to show him I love him so very much. I know I could always be doing more.
1. SO has IBS and has been trying to be better about his diet. I found an awesome website with hundreds of IBS friendly recipes. I plan on printing out some of them and putting them in a binder for him to have on hand. I’m also making him an IBS friendly dessert for our tailgate on Saturday.
2. He had a couple friends coming into town, so I cleaned his bathroom for him. He’s always very appreciative of that ..the lazy bum!
What about you? I’d love to hear ways you show your SO you care.

I love that my thread got a spin off 😉
I put up with SO talking about fantasy football all day on Sunday. He tells me all the time that he loves that I can put up with this silliness!

I’m not sure this really counts because it would have been horrible of me NOT to do it….but I woke up at 4:30am last Sunday and drove an hour (with him in tow) to watch him race in his first triathalon. I waited by the finish line and snapped a picture of him just as he crossed over.

My SO is going to his alma mater for the weekend in 2 weeks for an alumni business meeting. He was planning on staying at his sisters aprtment (who currently attends the school) on her couch but I surprised him and booked a hotel and told him that I was going to accompany him to keep him company…I guess I’m benefiting too but he was really surprised and can’t wait to go now!

SO started his new job on Monday and I have rubbed his aching neck last night and tonight, been quiet when I’ve come up to bed (it’s an early shift so he’s now in bed before me) and I made him his lunch tonight for tomorrow – super healthy and I hope he likes it. 🙂

Gave him a long massage last night and ironed his work clothes for the week.

I took over some of the things that are normally his jobs around the house because he’s having such a busy week.
And I cooked and cleaned and made sure he had clean clothes to wear. 🙂

I promised to make him cookies if he’s good. Just kidding (sort of). I got up with him early Monday morning instead of laying in bed like I usually do before he leaves to go back to the city he lives in during the week. I made him coffee, sat with him while he ate, and helped him load the car.

I spent 6+ hours on Saturday studying calculus with him, plus another hour or two a few nights this week. He’s going back for his masters and taking an online class this semester. We both took calc in undergrad but have forgotten it, so we are pretty much learning together from the online materials. If he makes an A on his test Friday I’m treating for pizza and beer, and letting him pick any movie to watch. I want to think of something a little bigger to do if he gets an A in the class…
Can you tell I’m so proud of him for going back to school while working full time? 🙂

I make coffee every morning for him to take to work with him, plus I do most of the cooking even though I get home hours later then him.

I cooked him and his friend dinner last night and then packed him a lunch and left a note in it. The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach 🙂

I didn’t cry or berate him when I saw his younger cousin and gf of 1 year post on Instagram about how much they can’t wait to marry each other, and I didn’t chide him when he said “this kids got it all figured out” when the kid said “only fools get married”.
Hey! No judging! That is LOVE right there when you are ripping apart internally at the seams.
