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.

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

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…]

Thankful Thoughts – I’m thankful for coffee

thankful thoughts 31 days of joy in motherhoodThankful Thoughts and Sundays just go together like beans and cornbread, right?

(mmmm…. cornbread)

Today, I’m thankful for coffee.

OK, realistically, I’m thankful for it every day.  But I’m writing about it today.

I didn’t start drinking coffee until about two years ago.  Before that, I was a hard core diet soda drinker for breakfast.

But now… [Read more…]
