Cars, coffee and priorities …

So I’m car shopping. Oh boy. This is a tough one for me. But having gone to an auto show yesterday certainly helped. It allowed me to wander and look and really narrow down what I liked enough to go test drive. Which I did today. I am self admittedly NOT a car person. But I AM a coffee person. And I am not ashamed to say that the dealership that has a Starbucks in their service area, is winning me over. Totally.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you get your priorities straight!!!

Decaffeinated …

Late this afternoon I realized I had no coffee today. NO. COFFEE. I wasn’t even trying not to. I just started this day CRAZY busy and it stayed that way all day. You would think that it would have occurred to me that I hadn’t had coffee at 1 pm when I realized I hadn’t eaten yet either. Seriously, it was one of THOSE days. But honestly, I’m in shock. As an avid coffee drinker I’m at a loss. How? I somehow survived the whole day with NO COFFEE. I didn’t die. No one was harmed. And the world didn’t end. Whoda thunk?!?!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are decaffeinated!!!

K-Cups and some tears …

We all drink different coffees in the house, which is why I feel that the Keurig is just about the best invention ever made for a busy family of coffee drinkers. We use that thing of beauty ALL day long. So you could image that yesterday when I found K-cups on sale for $5.99 a box I got quite excited. I even found my son George’s favorite, Starbucks Italian Roast. We have actually had a hard time finding it lately so I bought three boxes, one for home and two to pack in his things for college. I did all this without really thinking about it. Until this morning. And the it hit me hard. REAL hard.

I woke up early this morning and decided to make a big breakfast for my family. As I was busy preparing things I decided to stop and stock our K-Cup holder. I started with George’s Italian Roast … and I began to cry. The box contained just enough K-Cups to get him through until the day he leaves for college. Oh, yeah. I cried.

It’s moments like these that I question my sanity. How can K-Cups reduce a grown woman to tears? Clearly this can’t be even remotely normal! I ultimately calmed my insanity worries by remembering that a mother’s love knows no boundaries. This love is THE REAL DEAL. We love over time. Across the miles. Through joy and laughter. And in sadness and tears. We LOVE a BIG love. It’s shocking when you first experience it too. I believe that prior to having children women can only fathom this love. They know it will be strong and forever. But HOLY MOLY, when that baby becomes your reality, you are CONSUMED with a love you have never known. Understatedly, it’s wonderful. And once you have experienced this MOM LOVE you wouldn’t know what to do without it … because that love seeps into EVERY aspect of your being. Even into your morning coffee.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you share a cup of coffee with someone who gave you the gift of love!!!

A dramatically desperate coffee drinker …

I am tired … no … I mean REALLY tired … and we are traveling. My need for coffee and, sadly, my dependency on others to prepare my coffee has put me in a utter state of despair. I … can’t … go … on. 

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t feel dramatically desperate!!!
