latte withdrawal

Well, I am now back in the land of Dunkin Donuts, and after not having my simple coffee for so long I can now safely say that I have OD'ed on the stuff. And in the process I have completely abandoned my ol' standby treat - Starbucks lattes. The thing is, they are usually just something that I have as a treat now and then, but without an alternative all that time I had taken to drinking them on a regular basis. To the point of being tired of them. (What did I just say???) So I haven't even had one since I've been back. Tragedy. But now that I've realized it, I will have to make a point of rectifying the situation tomorrow. And from what I've read from some of you there are new exciting flavors for me to try. Can't wait!!

By the way, I got off my sorry butt and made those cookies with my kids. And they are amazing! So soft and yummy! Trust me, you'd want one (or two or seven). And we had fun making them. So sloth like behavior has come to an end. We have errands to run and people to visit this weekend which should keep me moving.

And besides, I'll have a warm, steamy latte to keep me going.
Ahhhhh. Divine.

Ugh. I have no ambition this week. All I want to do is lay around and eat ice cream, which I don't even have. I was *this* close to throwing together a batch of chocolate chip cookies, but decided at the last second that it was too much effort. I mean, seriously. I don't even need a recipe for that, and I couldn't even be bothered to make them. What a slug I am. Fortunately for me I have ankle biters who need constant attention (read: frequent feedings and juice) or else I might not even get out of bed on days like this. I will admit that I am sporting my pjs at the ripe ol' hour of 6:30. And the hair's a mess. But at least I made it until evening before I self-destructed into "blob" me.

And now it's time for the tots to turn in and DH is out with the guys. Quiet calm is ready to greet me. So I am about to settle in with some junk tv and net surfing and relax. Ahhh.

honey, i'm home!

It is SOOOO good to be home!!

So, did ya miss me? Did ya, did ya? Cause I sure missed you!!

I'm finally getting settled. We're not done by any stretch, but we're settled enough to live for now. We even have our kitty back - he's confused, but so are we sometimes. :) So things are back to normal for now, whatever that is. It's a beautiful day today. Cold but beautiful, and I'm thankful for that.

I am currently listening to Somewhere Over the Rainbow / What a Wonderful World by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, and I swear this song just makes me smile. I always picture me and DH on a tropical beach somewhere twirling away without a care in the world when I hear it. Good stuff, when a song can just take you away like that.

In other news, I've been to Target and other related stores more times than I care to admit lately, and I think I need to take a little shopping hiatus. (I can't believe I just said that!) Seriously though, I'm not quite sure what presidents have anything to do with sales, but it sure brings out all the crazies. I was quite overwhelmed and am in need of some recovery time.

Well, I should really have more to say than this, but this window has been sitting open for some time now and I haven't come up with anything to add, so that's it for now. Drop me a line and let me know how it's going.

Good to see you all again!!
