Happy National Coffee Day! I don't know who made this a "holiday," but I thank that person with every fiber of my coffee-infused being. Just kidding. Kind of. I did hop out of bed this morning thinking that I had a nationally supported reason to partake of my borderline addiction. I mean, it is a HOLIDAY, people. I have given up soda. I used to be a Diet Coke girl after my morning coffee. I have cut quite a bunch of unhealthy stuff out of my diet, though. Plus soda tastes really funny with the medications I am on. The carbonation tastes weird. So that was an easy cut. I have upped my coffee intake to 2-3 cups a day, on most days. And I really can't function before I get that first dose of caffeine. I sit with my coffee, check my e-mail. Occasionally I will be fooled into thinking that the caffeine has take hold and reply to something. So if anyone has ever gotten an early morning e-mail that doesn't make a ton of sense. It was me jumping the gun!
Unfortunately, this caffeine substance that works for so many people doesn't work as well for me. It helps get me going in the morning for a bit, but then by noon I am ready for a nap. Any coffee I drink after that point is purely for enjoyment. And enjoy it, I do! My favorite right now is a flavored K-Cup by Green Mountain Coffee- Wild Mountain Blueberry. YUM! Coffee and blueberries wrapped into one. It smells like a blueberry muffin. So I drink my blueberry coffee in the morning and pep up enough to function and get the munchkins off to school, answer e-mails and do some basic work "stuff".
|This is my fuel pump. Her name is Josephine. Yeah, a big cup of Josephine. Joe was too common.|
I hope everyone else is having a fantastic weekend. Go enjoy a cup of coffee or some coffee ice cream. Or both! Mmmmm! Coffee ice cream! I know what I'm having for dessert! Maybe I will have a pint while watching Doctor Who...Sounds like a plan!
