let's have coffee.

in two weeks, i am going to visit some friends.  friends i went to grad school with.  friends i spent just about every waking hour with for a year and a half.  really.  great.  friends.  typically, we spend the better part of our mornings and into the afternoon drinking coffee, eating peanut butter and banana toast (which we have affectionately coined as da bomb) and chatting...catching up.  i can't wait for that.

if you were having coffee with me, you might learn:

i'm in a pretty constant state of worry lately.  worried that things may not go as planned.  i've got it under control for the most part, but idle hands can be bad for me.

i get anxious thinking of december 7th and there isn't a day that goes by lately that i don't think about the belly i should have or would have had.

i wish i could spend a day off with my mom, sister and my niece, who live in new york.  stop and get a pedi or just go see a movie on a friday night.  the older i get, the more i can't stand the distance.

i might let my dog on the couch when jake isn't home...even though that is a no noand maybe the bed.

on any given night, we have about 7-10 pillows on our bed and that is not a joke.  one pillow is in the middle for us both to lean on and there's definitely a between the leg pillow and two for the head.  among others.

i sing "these are a few of my favorite things" to myself at night when a scary situation presents itself.  raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens.

i am uber excited for the arrival of our nephew, hudson [which may happen sooner than expected] and i'm also waiting to hear about another friend's little one due any day now!

i've been teaching idioms, or figurative language, to some students i have.  one, in particular, who has autism.  i get a kick out of how he pretty much speaks in idioms lately.  "mrs. menz, i'm all ears!"  "mrs. menz, i'm on top of the world because i got 100%."  "mrs. menz, it's raining cats and dogs!".  it's the cutest thing ever.

i'm pretty excited about the latest twilight installment.  and i'm not even really a huge twi-hard.

that's it for now.  i'm out of coffee.  and remy wants to snuggle on the couch

maybe a refill soon.  :)
and p.s. - can i get a few fingers crossed for hope right now?  danke!
