For those of you who may not be familiar with Virtual Coffee, it’s something started by Amy at Lucky #13. Every Tuesday is Virtual Coffee, a time to share what’s on our mind over a cup of coffee, as if we were meeting for coffee for real. I’ve read her weekly contribution for many, many weeks now, but have never participated. I thought it was time to change that!
Good Morning, Happy Coffee day to you! If we really were meeting for coffee, I’d probably be enjoying a grande non-fat no whip mocha from Starbucks. I’m a bit of an addict. I’d tell you all about my really great weekend. It wasn't anything special or out of the ordinary, but that's probably why it was so great. Just a regular weekend filled with soccer games and sleep-overs. Oh, those soccer games. After two weeks of games I have a flip flop tan. It’s still a bit hot to enjoy them without sweating buckets, which isn't so fun. Speaking of feet, I let Lily give me a pedicure this weekend. She didn’t do too bad. I’ve been meaning to get to the salon to treat myself to a real pedicure, but that hasn’t happened. I need a haircut, too. The last trim I did myself after watching a youtube video. It wasn’t bad, but it needs some evening out. I hope my hair guy forgives me for taking things into my own hands.
I’d also tell you that I am completely uninspired to cook (but totally loving my new rug in the kitchen). I have neither the energy nor the taste for anything. Sometimes something good will pop into my head, but when I think about all that is involved in making it, I lose interest. My poor family. They’re not starving, but they’re not eating too well, either. And the grocery shopping? Totally out of the question. I’ve been sending Matt to do the shopping, but I have to be very specific and list every single thing I need. If it isn’t on the list, it doesn't get purchased. And it takes him for-ever. I’m not complaining, I’m grateful he does all that he does.
Okay, I'd really, really try not to be a whiner, but I am officially at miserable. I’m a bit tired of the bug-eyed look I get when I tell people that I still have about 6 weeks left. I feel like a freak of nature. I waddle, my bones ache, and I make grunting noises when I get up from a sitting position. Walking is completely uncomfortable. But we do have a date scheduled, so the countdown has begun. We’ll be meeting this little girl on Friday October 28. I guess I need to get Halloween costumes figured out early this year. Yikes, I had better get cracking!
Well, my coffee time is up...let's do this again sometime! If you'd like to participate, hop on over to Amy's and link up. Until next time...
