Day 318- Bob Evans

This post is titled "Bob Evans" because I had an amazing tryst with some of Bob's food this evening, but the credit for the day really goes to my fabulous husband.  I don't want to repeat any subjects for the first 365 days here... so Tom and Bob will share some time today.

After having to pick me up last night and write my blog for me (yes, see the update on Day 317), I'm sure Tom must have been a little weary of my "Hey, I'm in college again for a night" behavior.  However, when I woke up this morning a little... ahem... under the weather, he did not show any signs of annoyance whatsoever.  Instead, he was kind to me all day long.

Tom took care of the dog all day without saying a word.  He got me water and tylenol and grilled cheese.  He tucked me in on the couch under the most comfortable blanket of all time and quietly went about his business around the house. 

I started to feel like a real person again this afternoon, and I decided that a turkey dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy would be the best thing to ever happen to me.  Tom went and found me one at Bob Evans, and it was absolutely everything I possibly hoped it could be... and more.  Hmm... sounds like someone else I know :).

I'm not sure what I did to deserve such love and affection.  In fact, I'm sure I was obnoxious enough at two o'clock this morning to warrant a day off from any kind of love and affection.  I tease my husband sometimes that he is not always so classically romantic, and I think it's only right that today I give credit where credit is due.  Tom, thanks for taking care of my silly self today and for feeding me and for loving me even when I had a bucket o'beverage too much.  You rule.

Thanks, Bob Evans (and Tom, really), you made my day.

Happy to do it!

I still owed you from Seattle when you saved my life.

I hope you enjoy your Bob Evans leftovers too :)
