Now that the writers are still on strike, Dennis Leary who stars in and writes his hit FX show Rescue Me is spending a lot more time at home, much to his family’s dismay.

"You get to the point where your kids are like, ‘When are you going back to work? I don’t need any help with my homework anymore," Dennis told OK! at a taping of The Rachael Ray Show in Bryant Park.

"And I’m like, ‘Ookay guys I’ll be downstairs if you need me!’" he added.

Meanwhile, he hints to OK! he completely forgot about Valentine’s Day coming up in a couple weeks. "Oh boy! That’s right around the corner," he said. "I can’t say what my plans are because it’s a surprise for my wife! But, I’m working on it!"

We hope it’s good, Dennis!
