I've got a pretty great husband, and a pretty dirty house. But let's focus on the great husband for a while, deal?
Here's the thing: I have the same breakfast every morning. Not just the same food, but the same amount, routine, schedule, in the same chair, everything. Missing out on that breakfast ruins my day. An integral part of that breakfast is the milk that goes in my raisin bran. When I don't have milk in the morning, desperation sets in. About a month ago, I realized upon opening the fridge that we were out of milk. I mixed half and half with water until I got it to the right consistency(about one part half and half to seven parts water). The flavor was never quite right, but once I added it to my raisin bran, it was passable. There is (almost) nothing I wouldn't do to ensure that I have milk with my breakfast.
That's why I say I've got a great husband. He's totally jumped on the "there aren't too many things more important in this world than Kelli having milk in the morning" bandwagon. Actually, there are three-and-a-half bandwagons, because the sign wouldn't fit on just one. : ) So last night, after seeing that the milk level was below the danger zone, he went to the store to get more for me. This is a pretty common occurrence.
Fast forward to this morning. In "my" place (if Patrick sits there during breakfast he will be ever so politely asked to MOVE) was my book, with a sliver of a note peeking out from underneath. Normally, anything outside my typical breakfast routine would make me skeptical, but I noticed the word "beautiful", so the slight shade of crankiness instantly disappeared.
Anyway, the new picture of Madison was the highlight of my morning. Even better than the milk in my raisin bran and the ring on the sweet note. Ha! "Put A Ring On It" just popped in my head. You're welcome if it's now in yours, too. : )
Anyone else wanna brag on their husband today? Do you have morning routines that determine the tone of the rest of your day? Have you ever "made" milk (I'm not talking about lactation here, so don't get gross on me)? Is anyone else humming Beyonce right now?
