Spinach Frittata, Usher – There Goes My Baby & Yvonne’s Comment

This is me grovelling.

This is me saying I’m sorry.  “Sorry, Mr. Woo.”

Sometimes I’m not so good at being a wife.

Sometimes I’m tired and I just can’t.  Sometimes I’m mean, and I just won’t.

Sometimes all I want is a hug, but I won’t give one.

I’m gonna try 200% today, Mr. Woo ~ because you deserve it.

Because you are the best there ever was, and because you think I’m beautiful even when I’m tore up and I’ve got crud in my eyes.

Because everytime I hear this song, I know it’s how you feel about me . Or maybe it’s how I feel about you, only the song is about a boy singing to a girl, and I’d have to change too many words, so that’s why I imagine that’s how you feel about me. (I could just be humoring myself. That’s fine too).

And because our sweet and wonderful friend Yvonne sent me a comment that reminded me of what a phenomenal person you are.

and because I love you, and really, when you married me, you knew exactly what you were getting yourself into.

In addition to being sorry, I really wanted to do something  nice for Mr. Woo, to let him know how much I love him.  Something that would delight his spirit, and give him a really good start to his day.

I decided I’d make hime a Spinach Frittata.  He really loves these.

Only I didn’t wake up early enough, and now he’s at work, and I think he had Honey-Nut Cheerios for breakfast.

Foiled again. Maybe I should try 300% harder.

  • Aww, how romantic. I don’t think Mike or I ever have had an “our” song…it’d probably be James Ingram’s “How do you keep the music playing?” Definitely nothing so sexy as Usher leaping up the side of a building to plant a kiss on my sexy, hair-blowing in the wind skinny self stretched out on top of the building! You’re an inspiration, and the fritatta looks pretty darn sexy from where I’m sitting, too! Love, EW
