He tried. You can't ask for more. And bringing it up after the fact won't solve the problem. Only create one. Just say 'Thank You' and be grateful. Next time tell him you are in the mood for a nice can of Campblell's soup.

Overly contemplative today so I wrote a poem about what was bothering me.

Started out slow, rapidly approaching hysteria, nurses meeting, extra hour at work and when I got home my new De Buyer pans were here!

Decided to make a childhood favorite dish for dinner but had to run out to Penzeys for mint and while I was out and about, stopped at an Armenian market and bought some lamejun for lunch.

As my first day off in over a week, I could think of better ways to spend it than at the dentist and grocery shopping!

Yesterday was wonderful, spending much of it here in light-hearted banter, while cooking DH his best meal in about two weeks (much thanks to Alix) and talking to a dear family friend about memories with Dad.
