A tiny love note.

I have to write a little love note. This weekend, I got food poisoning and was a complete mess. But despite my sunken eyes and ashen skin, Alex took such good care of me. He rubbed my back, did an awesome dance, brought me saltines and ice chips, sat very very still on the bed (as requested) and read me "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Although I was moaning through most of it, I felt so grateful. I love you, Alexei.

I hope you are feeling better! What is terrifying about your post is that the SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME this weekend -- on Friday. Worst food poisoning I've ever had.

Thank goodness for fabulous men in our lives who know how to take care of us.

PS I've been living on saltines, which I don't think I've considered a food since I was a kid.
