I Am A Genius

OK, probably not so much, but I did have a STROKE of genius this morning, so I think that counts. And I'm sure you're probably all already doing this, and I'm a ding dong, but here it is anyway.

I put a packet of cocoa in my mug before I brewed my coffee this morning (we have one of those pod coffeemakers). It brewed coffee right into my cocoa!!!! Whoopeee!

I know this probably seems like an incredbily idiotic thing to get excited about, but it's one of those mornings where the world should all go back to bed. It's raining/sleeting/snowing outside, not hard enough to really cause problems yet, but definitely enough to be gross. Snow, I like. Winter rain is just shitastic. Plus, I woke up fifteen minutes late this morning, so thank heavens the schools here offer free breakfast to the kids, because they didn't have time to eat here this morning. I am still in my pjs, because I didn't have time to get dressed, and really, once you've driven the kids to school in your pjs, why bother getting dressed once you get home? So, I am here in my pjs, reading all your blogs, drinking my fabulous creation, under a blanket, with Baci snoring happily on my legs. I know it's LAZY, and I do have the sense to feel moderately guilty about it. But, I've been crazy-busy lately, and damnit, I'm gonna drink my coffee!

AND, even better, I'm listening to my fabulous new cds that came in the mail yesterday from Kelsey at Midwest Mom!!! She sent me TWO!!! I'm listening to the one for grown-ups at the moment, and I have it on repeat, because I LOVE IT. The second one has all-kid music on it, which I also love!!!! Thanks, girlfriend!!!!

AND, the winner of my embarrassing holiday story is... CK!!!! So, send me your address, chickie, and I'll send you a present!!!!!! I was planning on giving out two, but since she's the only one who actually posted an embarrassing holiday story, I'm just going to give her an extra-big one instead!!!!

Having a day very much like you, minus the freezing rain and new CD's. Instead I have subzero temps and a toddler singing to me. =)

I am so jealous of you right now. Your day is way better than sitting in a cubicle staring at spreadsheets!!

Enjoy relaxing!!!

That is genius! Makes me want to go buy a coffee maker, but we don't drink coffee so it would just be a hot cocoa maker. And I wish I was in my pjs too. It's just too cold to be functioning at any level.

Oooh, I do this too! I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but I've had no choice since having kids who wake me at the butt crack of dawn. The hot chocolate in the coffee makes it soooo much better.

I'm going to try the coffee thing and I'm so glad you like your CDs!
