Coffee Love

I am starting to think that I drink too much coffee.

By 9am today, I will have gone through 36 0z of coffee. However, I did start drinking it at 5:30 am, so really that is averaging 10.3 oz per hour. Not too bad, right? But, that doesn’t count the 12 oz mocha I’ll be having this afternoon.

Maybe I do drink to much coffee.

Maybe I should try to wean myself off it.

Maybe not.

At least not right now!

(This kind of sums up how I am with out coffee… and nobody wants that!)

Five Six, Pick up Stick (and nuts, and leaves, and…)

So, it’s that time of year again. The sun is shining, it’s getting warmer, and the snow is melting… revealing all the winter debris that has collected on my lawn through the winter months. And when I say “winter debris” I really mean “lawn covered in hickory nuts and limbs.” There isn’t a square inch that doesn’t have stuff on it. (okay, that may be an exaggeration… but not by much!)


I started raking it yesterday, but quickly became overwhelmed by the exceptionally large task ahead of me. I figure that it will take about two weeks of my raking to get it completed (that is, if it’s not interrupted by rain). After all, I have to balance the time I have to rake with taking care of Bekah and the puppy. With Rick gone, there isn’t much time left for things like yard work!

So, I am on the hunt for a couple (or even one) strapping teenage boys who want to make some cash. I’ll pay, well, (okay… not well, but reasonable) to have someone else rake up the yard!

And just so you know that I am not lying… here it is in all it’s debris covered glory!

And So Here I Sit

Here I am, waiting…. waiting on the delivery guys to get here with my new treadmill. (I am SUPER excited about it!!!) They called me this morning to make sure someone was going to be home for the delivery… which they wanted to push up to 11 am. So I got out of my meeting as fast as I could, rushed home, took the poor puppy on the quickest walk he’s ever been on, and now I am waiting.

I’ve been waiting since 10:45. It’s now 12:45. What happened to pushing up the time?

And so I wait….

And He’s Gone.

So Rick left for two months yesterday. He had gotten orders early in February to report to Ft. Sill for training, and the training would be two months. He left on March st, and will be back around April 29th. Sigh. I hate it when he leaves.It reminds me of just how inadequate I am as a single parent. I don’t see how they do it. I mean really… How do they manage everything, and not lose their cool?

I miss having someone here to talk to, to help out, that I can lean on. I miss him.
