Nowadays all I want to do is to hug my pillow tight n sleep till 9 am. But my SH without waking me up questions me like is coffee decoction thr and so on... So without any second thoughts i jus jump up before he starts messing the kitchen. But i will make sure that he makes the coffee for me...

When SH is at home, I always cook something spicy because we don't eat much outside.. we prefer staying home and eat the simplest home food.
