Today was Father’s Day, and I know my husband’s dream day is a day where he doesn’t have to do anything, a Day of Nothing if you will, so I tried to give him that today. The problem with that is that the lawn still needed to be mowed. Also, I had planned a dinner of steak and potatoes, and I’m not allowed to grill steak because it’s just too good to risk messing up, so he was stuck grilling as well. But he says he doesn’t mind that, so I guess that’s okay. I marinated the steak early in the day, baked the potatoes, and the rest was up to him. I’m really uncomfortable operating a grill, so I was totally fine with the compromise.
We did manage to prepare a nice brunch for him this morning, and that was a lot of fun. I made the bacon, Luke made the pancakes, and Natalie set the table. All while Dad rested in the recliner, watching the replay of last night’s Tigers game. It was a mostly relaxing day for him, and I know he got a good nap in before dinner, so I’ll call that successful enough.
I really wanted to give my husband the same spectacular treatment I feel like I was given on Mother’s Day, but I think that was just too much to live up to. Still I think between the Tigers’ game and a day of mostly nothing, I hope we came close. I really do, because he really works hard for our family. Seriously. He’s the glue, man. I can’t fathom where we would be without him. I hope he knows how much we appreciate him and all he does for our family.
