Here we are, Tuesday, and it’s coffee time. No long preamble today, I’m going to jump right in. If we were really having coffee, I would tell you that my day got turned around this morning. You hear the tv in the background? Yeah, it’s Madagascar 2, again. The Boy is home with a temperature, not a high temperature, and he’s showing no other signs of illness, but still he won’t eat anything so I decided to keep him home and avoid the whole throwing up in the car scenario that would’ve inevitably ensued had I decided to take him to daycare.
We also decided to try and send the girl to daycare without him, needless to say that lots of drama followed. After several phone calls and two pretty severe crying bouts she seems to have calmed down, but I have to go get her early, so coffee will be brief. Sigh.
I would also tell you that coffee without my usual cookie, or cupcake, or banana bread just isn’t doing anything for me. Why I wasn’t born with an abnormally fast metabolism is simply beyond me. So here’s a picture of what I wish I were eating, if I hadn’t started the stupid diet yesterday.
I may possibly be spending altogether too many hours looking at food that I can’t eat. But enough crying over spilled chocolate, if we were having coffee today, I would ask you if you were reading anything good, cause I can’t seem to find anything that captures my fancy. Just so you know, I like series, nothing too sentimental, vampire stories are fine but nothing too gory cause ever since I had kids I can’t read or watch anything violent. I’ve become fainthearted! I’m just looking for something light and fun, possibly funny, ideally well written.
You want to know something shameful about me? Every single time I read, anything, whether it be a book, a blog, a magazine article, a newspaper, I edit in my mind. I edit punctuation (pretty arrogant of me, since you may have noticed my own punctuation is not exactly stellar), I rewrite sentences, I exchange words for synonyms I deem more fitting. I annoy the crap out of myself and yet I cannot stop. It’s a compulsion.
There, now your turn, do you have any thoroughly annoying habits even if you’re only annoying yourself?
Ok all done, see coffee with no treats makes for a poor and quick coffee indeed! Now go visit our hostess Amy, I’m sure she’s got something good to eat.
