GOOD WIFE'S GUIDE

The Good Wife's Guide Housekeeping Monthly

-Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious
meal ready on time for his return. This is a way of letting him know that
you have be thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. Most men
are hungry when they come home and the prospect of a good meal (especially
his favourite dish) is part of the warm welcome needed.

-Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you'll be refreshed when he
arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be
fresh-looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people.

-Be a little gay and a little more interesting for him. His boring day may
need a lift and one of your duties is to provide it.

-Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the
house just before your husband arrives. Run a dustcloth over the tables.

-Over the cooler months of the year you should prepare and light a fire for
him to unwind by. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and
order, and it will give you a lift too. After all, catering for his comfort
will provide you with immense personal satisfaction.

-Minimize all noise. At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the
washer, dryer or vacuum. Encourage the children to be quiet.

-Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him.

-Listen to him. You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the
moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first - remember, his
topics of conversation are more important than yours.

-Make the evening his. Never complain if he comes home late or goes out to
dinner or other places of entertainment without you. Instead, try to
understand his world of strain and pressure and his very real need to be at
home and relax.

-Your goal: To try and make sure your home is a place of peace, order, and
tranquillity where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.
Don't greet him with complaints and problems.

-Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or have him
lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him.
Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soothing
and pleasant voice.

-Don't ask him questions about his actions or question his judgment or
integrity. Remember, he is the master of the house and as such will always
exercise his will with fairness and truthfulness. You have no right to
question him.

A good wife always knows her place.
