1) straighten up the house before she gets home thus making her really feel unneeded; or
2) leave the house a mess and say "We're really glad your home. We don't know how we can make it without you!"
My superior male logic says to go for option 2. :)
What saith the sages?
also cook the dinner..badly! she will appreaciate you tried but will see you are uselles without her.women love if you care about them so mcuh that you are prepare to make an idiot of yourself (while making something for her). Public humiliation (your , not hers) to show her that you are sorry or that you love her goes long way too ;)
btw, you didnt tell us if you want her to comeback?
Old pizza boxes and soda/beer bottles are stashed in a box in the garage (coat closets work well too).
Crusts, hardening chinese fried rice, and unidentifiable items can easily be swept into floor vents or under rugs. If the smell becomes obvious, blame it on mice.
Stash all clothes that smell in the garage (or basement). All clothes that do not smell, organize neatly in your dresser.
Buy flowers and chocolate and set them up in a nice display for her arrival. Make sure that table is clean.
She may not notice you until she finds out you messed up the laundry, but the flowers and knee hugging will have already worked their magic.
Have the house clean, and YOUR laundry done. Never do a woman's laundry unless you are quite sure you won't ruin her favorite blouse. Let her relax all day, then take her out to dinner the following day and tell her how glad you are she's back. Then hand her the gift certificate to that all day pampering salon.
Update: Kitchen looks great, dishes are all washed an put up. Since that's the first room she will see when she comes in this evening, that ought to be enough. :) I stayed away from the laundry.
Oh yeah, Matt picked up his room before he went out to play. Everything seems cool at this point.
I'll give her a big hug when she comes in. That should hold her for a couple of days.
1: have the place spotless, but then she might not even notice because it is the way it should be.
2: have her come home to melted clothes in the microwave, droken dishes in the tumble drier etc
but if you chose option 2 you will be left with the saying "you are useless when im not here"
Option 1 would be the best ruit to go down... no mess no issue :)
are we not assuming it's a sweet little kid rather than a new lover
Well, glengara, after lorax mentioned a dog I tought it might be a dog for a while. But then I´m not really sure if you would tell your wife that you are getting along fine with your dog ;)
So I guess it had to be his kid then.
