One thing that my husband appreciates is having his lunch and coffee made in the morning. I do this occasionally. I thought that as a fresh start to 2012 I would get back in the habit.
After a few days of getting up early to serve him, I realized that most of what I do in the morning could be prepared the night before.
Night one: Finish the dishes, start lunches and prepare coffee pot.
Morning one: No coffee. Realize the clock is set backwards. PM does not mean Pre-Morning.
Night two: Finish the dishes, start lunches and prepare coffee pot.
Morning two: No coffee. Never turned on the delayed start.
Night Three: My husband asked if we still had the coffee pot manual. I acknowledged that yes, we probably did. I assumed he was asking because we were doing dishes and he wanted to clean the coffee maker. I assured him that we did, and I would work on getting that taken care of. He said, “No, I thought it might help in setting the timer.”
I have learned to appreciate his sarcasm
