This week has been pretty heavily focus on coffee, in a way. First on Monday morning, before and after Eli’s surgery when we were so completely, out-of-our-minds exhausted, all we could focus on, besides the health and safety of our son, of course, was how in the world we were going to get our hands on some coffee.
Finally, at 5:10, (we had been up for two hours at this point!), we found coffee in the waiting room, I’m always skeptical of coffee, I wouldn’t say I’m a coffee snob but I am particular. (I don’t do flavors or sugar, just cream and I need it to taste like coffee) I was cautiously pouring it, checking out the color, smelling the aroma, it seemed okay. After about five minutes of letting it cool, I took a sip and it was one of the best cups of coffee I have ever had in my life.
I had two cups.
But I wanted three.
Did I mention it was free? And that two hours later we went to Starbucks and spent $8 on two regular venti coffees and it tasted like melted tires served with sub par service. (not even a thank you!) Well, let’s just say I was extra appreciative for that coffee goodness so early in the morning.
Also what’s on my mind is sleep. I need Eli to start sleeping through the night. In December, we did sleep training and it worked quite well. But these past three weeks, with him being sick and then his surgery, well, he apparently needs another installment of Sleep 101 which is so hard but totally worth it but SO HARD.
That begins today. (like 45 minutes ago, to be exact.) I hope it’s easier this time around but he’s older now and so much smarter and that child is so very stubborn. (and he’s so cute. do you know how hard it is to not pick up a sweet, warm, snuggly adorable baby when he’s too tired to sleep?) But, I believe this is necessary and only helps baby in the long run, so hopefully by Monday, I’ll have good things to report. Either that or I will be dead.
And finally, after years of indecision, I have decided to paint my living room, office, foyer and stairs this wall color because it’s so absolutely over the top perfect that I can hardly stand it.
I even have the same wide, white baseboards which just seals the deal. hmmm….I’m wondering if Brian wants to take on a project this weekend.
You guys would help paint if you could, right? RIGHT?!
Happy Friday, friends.
