I was up at 4:30 this morning, making breakfast. Yes, you read that right. I was up at the butt-crack of dawn. Cooking. And if you know me at all by now you realize that those are two things I do not like when tackled on their own. Put them together, and I had to have a darn good reason for it.
Although, I will say it was a really awesome breakfast of fried potatoes, scrambled eggs, bacon and ranch style beans. All wrapped up in a warm tortilla. Mmmmm..... yummy.
Anyway, back to my really good reason for doing something that would normally cause my friends and family to call the Men in Black to check for alien organisms, or a priest (despite the fact that we aren't Catholic) to exorcise some random demon.
Today is Coach's birthday.
In the everyday course of our lives, I would have planned a great dinner. A dinner cooked by someone other than myself, in a location tidier than my house. A dinner that *gasp* occurred at an acceptable dinner time. You know, the EVENING hours. However, life being what it is these days, that wasn't going to work. Coach, being what he is....which is a COACH, has practice tonight. He won't get home until probably around 8:30 or so, and the silly man is in bed and passed out cold by 9:30 (you caught that 4:30 AM wake up time, right?), so dinner was pretty much out of the question. At least an elaborate one that would showcase just how special he is.
So, being the still-totally-crushing-on-my-husband kind of wife that I am, I dragged my butt out of bed at 4:30 this morning to make him breakfast. (Mmmmm.....fried potatoes......)
Because I love him. Because that is probably the only time today I'll really get to see him. Because he makes a lot of racket in the mornings, anyway. (Kidding... he's usually pretty quiet. That, or I can sleep through just about anything if I put my mind to it.)
He also, lucky man that he is, got something he's been asking for for DAYS. Maybe even WEEKS. He's tried dropping hints, playing all subtle. He's been blatantly obvious. He's even begged.
He got the new CD released by AC/DC.
Told you I love him.
