A {Springy} Virtual Coffee


Happy Tuesday and first day of spring.

The weather has been reminiscent of May and I periodically need to check my calendar to make sure it’s March. I’m still a little apprehensive about this warm weather trend, because if it keeps this up it could be over 90 degrees in May. But I must quell my worries and just live in the moment … right?

If we were really meeting for coffee I’d actually order mine caffeinated, since I’m a tad sleep deprived. Our youngest, who is suffering from a bout of hand, foot and mouth {gross}, was up SIX times last night. At least it was an equal opportunity wake-up call as Bill took half of them and I took half. This means, if you put us together we might be the equivalent of a whole person with eight hours of sleep.

Yesterday B2 and I tag teamed nurse duties while our little guy stayed home from school. I hung out with him over my lunch hour and read some books. It was loads of fun, and it was so hard to go back to work. Today my mom watched him. Thank goodness she’s here. I don’t know what we would have done without her.

Oh, and I totally wanted to tell you that I finished the Hunger Games. Whoa…I’m soooo looking forward to seeing the movie and how they will translate it to the big screen. Even though I’m waiting with bated breath for the movie, I will NOT be one of the crazy people who line up for the midnight showing. Seriously…I can barely keep my eyes open past 9 p.m. There’s no way I’d be able to stay up that late.

I’m ready to read the second one “Catching Fire”, and I’m patiently waiting for a friend to finish it so I can borrow her copy. Hurry up already! Ha!

If we were really meeting for coffee I’d also tell you that I’ve been participating in Susannah Conway’s Blogging from the Heart ecourse. I’ve really enjoyed the course so far, although I will admit I’m a tad intimidated by all the creative and talented women in the group. The goal of the course is to write from the heart and put yourself out there. Today, I was able to guest post at Bigger Picture Blogs and write my “I am” piece. Stop over and take a look, you might learn something new about me…

Well, Dinosaur Train is over and it’s story time. I’m trying to talk E into reading the “Secret Garden” my FAVORITE book. What was your favorite book as a child?

Thanks for coffee and don’t forget to head over to Amy’s to see what’s brewing.

  1. >I'm from the Blogging from the Heart e-course and I popped over for a sneaky looks at your blog and I loves it:) I'm feeling a little intimidated by all the amazing blog writers in this course too! I also had to say I just bought a copy of The Hunger Games this morning and I can't wait to read it. So far I have seen nothing but rave reviews for the book so I had to know what it is all about. I look forward to reading more of your blog 🙂

  2. >Boo to hand, foot & mouth disease. No bueno. Hope he feels better soon!

    I'm really looking forward to hearing your thoughts when you finish the HG trilogy. I'm not sure I remember my favorite books when I was really young. I read a lot of Golden Books and I had this Big Book of Stories full of short stories I loved. As I got a little older, I remember being into Nancy Drew books and this series (I can't remember the name) that involved horses…The ones that stand out to me now are: Black Beauty, Charlotte's Web, Anne of Green Gables, and Where the Red Fern Grows (though I think it was middle school before I read that).

    How did your trip and conference go? Did I somehow miss you talking about that?
