Single Mommyhood!

Well, it's my last night as a single mommy. Hubby's been out of town for work since Sunday morning and LH and I have been having a great time! He's been super sweet and agreeable (minus the tantrum on Sunday evening brought on by no nap and playing in the sun all afternoon) but other than that, wondeful!
He's been helping around the house getting the dog's food, taking trash out, putting away his dirty clothes, dishes, etc. He's been amazing! He's being the "Jr. Boss" as his daddy says! He wants to make sure he is taking care of his momma while his daddy was gone!
As much fun as we are having, we are ready for daddy to come back! I guess that means I'll have to start cooking again. We've been enjoying pizza and ice cream and eating in the den!!
Hopefully tomorrow we will get to plant the flowers we bought tonight at our new local Lowes and enjoy a real meal at the table as a family!

Move over Maxwell House

I've officially become a coffee snob! I don't know how this happened. I didn't even drink coffee until after LH was born, but over the course of about 4 years, I've just become a snot about it.

I seriously started drinking it (on a daily basis) after I started this job a little over 2 years ago and its progressively gotten worse. I now have to have it every morning like most people in this world, but now I'm totally picky about it. We use just the regular Maxwell House or Foldgers in the office, and up until recently, that was fine. I have gradually made it stronger and stronger and now I just don't like it. I can't say why though.

I've always enjoyed Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, or the little coffee shop here in town, but now, that seems to be my norm or my K-cups with the Keurig!!! I realized today though, it must me the actual coffee, not the strength? or maybe it's both. I ran out of K-cups. I have a cool filter that I can use with just regular coffee, so I tried it. I put a rather big heaping tablespoon full of coffee in there and brewed it. I made it just like I always do with a splash of cream and some sugar, but it just didn't taste right!!! What? Did I do something wrong? SO, I made more, a little stronger!!! It didn't work. I ended up running through the drive thru at Starbucks after taking LH to school!

I have to figure something out because this habit is way too costly for me to keep up! I desperately need some K-cups for sure, but I'm thinking of buying a bag of Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks coffee for the house to see if that is any better!

Either way, I've deemed myself a coffee snob! I guess it could be worse!
