A Good Morning...
After Angela cooked up a huge Thanksgiving meal for the two of us (with a little help from me: bringing supplies, removing and cleaning dirty cookware, and lugging massive turkeys)... we had a lovely meal, and then Angela went back to the bedroom to collapse.

For three days.

Seems like there may have been a little "sick" in there, in addition to her usual post-heavy-activity Fibro-related exhaustion and pain.

In between bringing her rounds of coffee and leftover stuffing in bed, I got alot of work done on my office over the holiday (see prev post) -- and she got Much Better yesterday evening.  So much so, that she popped up bright and early this morning, read for a bit, and then went and cooked up a giant batch of french toast, all while I slept.

My alarm went off at 6:30am.  I hit snooze, and tried to think of some excuse to continue sleeping and not go to work.

Then I noticed that Angela wasn't in bed, OR in the bathroom, and there was a faint light coming from the doorway.

The combination of guilt (i.e. "I REALLY need to get my butt to work"), *PLUS* the curiosity of just what the heck Angela was up to, finally got the better of me...

...and we wound up having a lovely french toast breakfast, *JUST* as the first snow of the season started to fall.

Angela's fibro, combined with her natural inclinations, make her even less of a morning person than I am  (and I never get up before 10am if I have any choice) -- so sharing a delicious breakfast with my wife in the early morning hours, while watching it snow, was just about the most rare, special, perfect thing I can imagine.

And I'd have missed it if I'd caved in to my intense urge to roll over and go back to sleep.

I love you, Angela...
