I am very much not a morning person. For the most part I get out of bed ten minutes before I'm supposed to leave the house for work. This does not leave any time for extra activities. I get up, throw on some clothes, put my hair in a ponytail, brush my teeth, throw on some eyeliner and mascara and run out the door. The past couple of mornings have been pretty cold and there has been frost on all the cars. Yesterday Russ called me after he left the house to warn me that it was icy outside. I ran out of the house five minutes late and he had already scraped my windows for me!
Today when I left the bedroom I thought I smelled coffee but Russ doesn't drink it so I assumed it was just his body spray. I ran out the door and he had once again scraped my windows for me. I called him to thank him for doing it today and yesterday (horrible wife that I am I never thanked him yesterday) and he asked if I had gotten my coffee. He made coffee just for me and I didn't even know. He left it in the kitchen which I never go into in the mornings cause I don't have time. My heart melted a little.
He is constantly doing little things like that for me and I tend to take them for granted a lot. It's a little late but I think I'm going to make my New Year's resolution to be to appreciate my husband a little more and to try and do little nice things for him more often.
