The One Where I Gush

So this morning I woke up to an empty bed. Well, except for me, of course. My first thought was "Oh man, he's pissed." You see, lately Hubby has been bitching about commenting upon my snoring (again). I've had a cold, and have been fighting off a sinus infection and have gained some winter pounds so his aggravation with my nighttime warbling is probably warranted (and I admit that grudgingly).

I got ready for work, all the while feeling refreshed because I was able to hog all the covers and sleep so soundly guilty that Hubby had to sleep elsewhere and preparing myself for his ire.

I slunk downstairs. And immediately apologized.

He said, "For what?"

I was confused. It wasn't my snoring? Then what was it?

"You didn't smell the woodstove? It was smoking really bad. It woke me up out of a sound sleep! I slept on the couch so I could keep an eye on it all night."

Oh.

So not only did he sacrifice a night's sleep to keep his family safe, I also found this waiting for me:

Everybody all together now:

"Awwwwwwwwwwww."

Awwwwww sounds about right from me too. The Man (whom I love a really really lot because MOST of the time he is a super awesome dad & husband) slept alone in our bed today for the 2.5 hours it took me to get myself and all our gang out the door, conveniently ignoring all my subtle attempts (read loud slamming noises) I made to let him know I needed his help.

So, I'll say it again for good measure.

Awwwwwwww.
