Why I changed my coffee habit

Starting in July, I made a radical change to my coffee habit.  A month of vacation had given my husband and I a LOT of chances to drink bad hotel coffee, over priced coffee drinks, and a few really spectacular cups of handcrafted heaven-in-a-cup.

I was looking forward to getting home and curling up in my favorite chair with my coffee every morning.  I’d expected to return to my time-tested routine.

Stumble downstairs, grope for the power button on the Keurig, count the seconds until it’s ready to go, and then inhale the fumes until I can actually DRINK the coffee.


We were out of k-cups. [Read more…]

Why I need coffee

I think most moms run on coffee, at least for part of each day.

One of my girlfriends was telling me a bad day is when she transitions straight from coffee to wine with no water in between.  Given that I made a New Year’s resolution to drink more water than wine, I understood exactly what she meant.

I think most writers and artists run on coffee (at least when they aren’t running on wine or something).


As a mom and a writer, coffee plays a VERY important role in my life.  You’ll never believe what I did without it. [Read more…]

I kinda sorta love Mondays

I never thought I would say it, but I kinda sorta love Mondays.

(That may be too strong a sentiment.  I at least don’t hate them like I used to.)

Before you call me crazy, hear me out.  I think you might secretly love Mondays too! [Read more…]

My kids are NOT making me laugh

I have to be honest. My kids are NOT making my laugh today.

Imagine me standing here with my hands on my hips. I’m tapping one foot. I have the “mom face” going.  I’m saying

I am not amused.

Yes. It’s Tuesday. The day I normally post a cute story about how my kids make me laugh. I normally make a statement that my kids make me laugh almost every day.

The key word is almost.  Today is… the other kind of day.

Honestly, it’s all my fault. To quote TobyMac,

I need some time with God and a mental vacation.

Sorry, I’m not much for conversation….

(sorry if that song sticks in your head.  giggle.) [Read more…]
