A Cure for What Ails Ya

I had a tough weekend.

I had to work both days. I ended up billing something like 14 hours over Saturday and Sunday.

On Sunday night, the Husband went out with some friends while I worked.

Around 9 p.m., he came home. I barely looked up, as I was sitting at the computer, feverishly finishing up my work.

As I hit 'Send' on my email sending everything I'd done to the client, out of the corner of my eye I saw him walk toward me. He had something in his hand, but I couldn't see what it was.

"I got you a little present," he said. "I thought it might make you feel better and maybe take away some of your stress."

He plunked something down on the table, on top of my files.

It was a bottle of Jack Daniel's.

We shared a drink together. Ok, 2.

Ok, maybe more than that.

Ok, ok, I lost count.

All I know is that he was right - it did take the edge off.

I am happy I married this man. Hiccup.
