Hubby Makes Dinner


I'm not sure why, but this has been a difficult week for me.  Emotionally.  I've been a basket case.  So tonight we decided to venture to a antique store in a town about 30 minutes away we get there and they are having a down town, Christmas celebration and there is no parking to be found.  So Alex says to me I'll make you dinner.  I'll do it all by myself.  This is the result.
