Tim is suppose to be coming home soon.

Last time he came home from Kuwait, I pampered him for a while, ordered new lingerie, cooked his favorite veg meals, put a big banner up out front, etc. Just basic stuff.

This time I want to go beyond that. Not only has he been in a war, but he has also decided to go vegetarian.
I never thought it would happen! I love Tim very much, but he has always been somewhat shallow - I know it sounds bad, but I don't know how else to word it.
He's even said that once out of the military, he wants to go vegan.


Anyway, I want this time to be "WOW". I bought him a bunch of stuff including a Playstation 2, I'm painting the interior of the house, I bought myself various dance videos (exotic, bellydance, hula), have stocked the kitchen with his favorite stuff, am buying new bedding, got a romantic board game, a love swing, a massage video, other things I'm not telling you about, I'm getting the dogs professionally groomed, got him a couple dvd's and cd's he has wanted(thanks be to ebay and amazon, otherwise it never would have happened), blah, blah, blah. All of this is good, but not quite good enough.

He use to be a real butthole and I was ready to end it all, but for almost a year now, he's shown some really great improvement. I want him to know how appreciated he is.

Any suggestions?

How about telling him how you are feeling? Does he know how you did feel (about the shallow thing?) Maybe you should have an honest emotional session with him... a bubble bath with candlelight and music and all... unless that's too sappy!

Actually if I can add my 2 cents. as a vet myself,the best homecoming is just that. Being able to sit down and hold the one you love and maybe not say anything. Just to listen to your hearts beat and to feel safe. Thats a homecoming.

Great minds think alike!


I actually was going to send him in for a massage once, but he wasn't comfortable with the idea. That's why I bought a video and some massage oil. That way we can do it together at home.

He already knows. I don't keep my mouth shut about much.

That's a pretty good idea. I'm planning to do something special every night of the first week. So one night we could do a bubble bath with soothing lavender scents, candles, soft music, maybe give eachother pedicures minus the polish and that sort of thing. Don't tell anyone (he's afraid people will think he's girly), but he also enjoys when I wash his face with an exfoliating scrub then apply a face mask.

Thanks shewolf!

Nah. I don't like to share.

Martha Stewart! ROTFLMAO


Now there is someone I never would have thought I'd be compared to! I am not very good at the whole "domestic" thing. That's so funny mouse. LOL I'll be laughing about that the rest of the night. Thanks!

You had me at "Playstation 2"
He's wanted one for a couple years and all of his friends have one. I figured I should buy it while we actually have money. I just hope he doesn't give all of his attention to it.
It just might be our downfall.

He's said similar stuff over the phone. But that's the whole thing - we've been able to talk since he's been gone. This is where my selfishness comes into the picture. I haven't had sex since he left in January. I expect to be ravaged first, cuddled and talked to after.


Michael and Budda,

I never expected this thread to become about people wetting themselves. It's a very amusing turn! Only you could transition it so smoothly.
