Carlos gets up first, and showers first, every morning. I usually wake up, see the lights on under the bathroom door, hear the shower running, and know i can snooze a bit longer.

And I do; until Carlos comes out of the bathroom and makes his way in the dark to his nightstand and his glasses and watch. Then I wake up and order breakfast. I kid; I tell him what I'm having for breakfast. He only makes the Cafe con Leche.

But one morning last week, at the time Carlos is exiting the bathroom and coming for his glasses, I hear a loud thump and an "Oh shit."

"Are you okay?"

"I ran into the door frame."

"You can turn the light on."

"I didn't want to wake you."

"Oh, okay then. Thanks for the thump and the 'Oh shit.'"

You get cafe con leche? I even live above a cafe and sleep with owner but I never get that in bed. Carlos rocks.

Give him a hug in gratitude for his thoughtfulness (both the cafe con leche and efforts not to disturb your beauty sleep).

every girl should have a man around the house. ;-)

arteejee gets up first, feeds the cats, starts the cawfee, reads the morning paper. sometimes he's quiet, other times it sounds like an elephant stampede on the first floor. due to my damn insomnia, I need all the rest I can get. then when I go downstairs, my cawfee is brought to me.
