Loose coffee lids, drooling and unnecessary panic …

This morning after I drove Libs to school I had a brief moment to just sit. So I decided that I would SIT in bed. YES, I went back to bed with coffee in hand. I was like, WHY NOT?!?! I deserve a calm moment before I jump into my busy day. So I settled in and started going through my emails.

Now, I have to explain something before I go on. I always use a disposable lidded to-go cup on school mornings. I know they are wasteful but I’m in and out of the house so much and have to walk away from my coffee so frequently, that I found that they spare me from spills and drinking cold coffee. So, I use them.

Now, back to my morning. Engrossed in my emails, I took a sip of my coffee, and suddenly had a warm feeling between my … boobs. I was a little surprised, but GET THIS. I just assumed that I had drooled all over myself. DROOLED. Like that is something normal for me?!?! Not thinking anything of it I cleaned myself up and went back to my emails. When I went to take another sip of my coffee I reminded myself to be careful not to drool all over myself again. Because that is what you do when you are suddenly and spontaneously a new drool-er. But guess what?!?! It happened again, ONLY WORSE! It was like a coffee boob bath! This time I was a bit more concerned. WHAT is wrong with my face?!?! WHY can’t I get this coffee into my mouth like usual?!?! Have I COMPLETELY lost this ability?!?! And if I have, WHY?!?!

So, what do I do?

I begin to do a mini medical assessment. I feel around on my face. Am I numb? Do I have facial dropping? Yes folks, THIS is where I went with my thoughts. OY.

PERHAPS, the first thing I should have checked was the lid to my coffee cup … like a normal person. Ya know, to see if it popped off. LIKE IT HAD. No major medical crisis here. Just an unsecured lid and a coffee drinker with a wild imagination. Good Lordy.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t panic for ABSOLUTELY no reason at all!!!

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!!!
