Its Raining, Its pouring. This Day'll Be Far From Boring

Random Thoughts From Kellie's Brain:

~A big shout out to Darcie and Jeff for making me a special Twitter button (it's on the right. Go on, click it...I know you want to.) I just love how it matches my blog design. I love how it has four, 18* oz cups, all clean and stacked high. It just says "come on over and stay awhile" which is how I want y'all to feel when you come to visit.

(*I don't mess around when it comes to coffee cups. 6-8 oz cups require too much running back and forth to the kitchen)

~Speaking of visiting, I am having a friend over for lunch today. Its rainy and cold, so I am thinking of something I could serve her that is warm and delicious. Oh the possibilities...

~It just occurred to me that I drink 36 oz of coffee every morning. And on cold days, I make another half a pot to keep me warm.  Uh, thats a lot of coffee. 

~Sometimes, when I make that second pot, I do use half decaf.  Just so you know.

~This morning I am not in the best mood. The kids, who have never really done much fighting with each other have started to bicker a bit. This is new for me and it makes me a little insane, and honestly they picked the wrong time of the month to drive me insane.  

~Todays drive to insanity was a quick trip, and I completely threatened them with a spanking for bickering (which I have not done in a very LONG time.) I can't even remember the last time I spanked them...

~Normally, I make it a point not to make empty threats (especially since I would rather go to the dentist than spank them) but this morning it was out of my mouth before I could stop it.

~The truth is I have been blessed with good kids who aren't perfect, but try really hard to be obedient and respectful. They love each other, but they are kids. I just seem to have a very short fuse this morning.

~Maybe I need more coffee. To wash down some Midol.

~Hmm...I had a few other things I wanted to tell you while I had the chance. The kids are doing independent work, so I had ten minutes to post....but I can't remember what I was going to write. 

~Oh well, on a morning like this, saying nothing is probably better anyway!

~All this talk about coffee makes me thirsty. Off to the kitchen...

Happy Wednesday!

I feel the same way about my kiddos...they rarely go at it but when they do, I seem to be so snippy--probably b/c I am SOO thankful that they do get along for the most part and don't want to even let it creep into their heads for it to become habit...

I am thinking of making a pot of coffee this morning (don't pass out Kellie, but I don't make one every morning ;) I am headache-y and the coffee always helps...I am thinking I might not should've admitted that on this blog....heehee!

Hope your lunch date is wonderful!

I need to make myself some coffee this post totally got me in the mood for some :-)

Coffee does sound good right about now since I'm going on only 5 hours sleep. This should be a long day.

I like the new button. I haven't looked into Twitter because I'm scared I'll get addicted. I'll probably do it anyways though.

Have a Great Day and a good lunch with your friend. Hope the Midol kicks in. I could use some myself.

I LOVE your Twitter button! It is absolutely fabulous!! My kids have been bickering ALL WEEK! I think it's the long winter and how we all are anxious for spring. It does make a body cranky!

Even though I don't drink coffee it's wonderful that we can still be friends! :) Diet Coke is my have-to-have drink!

Chel said...

I don't spank (personal choice, not a mandate), so I tend to threaten with more tangible things... "I swear, if ya'll don't settle down and let me finish this Diet Coke (with my Midol), I'm gonna make you watch home decorating shows all day."

And while I don't drink coffee (like me anyway, ok?), I drink more Diet Coke than you drink coffee. :)

Rae and Chel and all my other sweet non java friends,

Even though you don't drink coffee, we are absolutely still friends, (I can't afford to be choosy on the basis of beverages!). But I have to know your diet coke preference...I enjoy my Diet Coke from a fountain, with lots of ice (crushed is best) and a straw. And through a glass that I can see through.

If none of that is available, then a can will do fine as long as its cold. Not that I am picky or anything...what about you? How do you drink your DC?

And with as much coffee as I drink, I limit my DC consumption to just a couple a week (usually on the weekend).

I love the button! Darcie and Jeff did a great job!

Wow, that is a lot of coffee...I would be peeing nonstop!

Happy Wednesday to you, too!

So glad you like your button - and that you got that boring techie stuff all figured out!

Your kids are starting to bicker? Sheesh. Took 'em long enough. :)

Ha! More coffee to wash down the Midol. Love it. Some days that's just what you need.

**Hope this didn't post twice..having technical difficulties!**

jen said...

too too funny
Laughed out loud at the big about telling them you were going to spank them before you realized what you were saying.

Tell them they can bicker all they want - they just have to do it in the closet or the basement or the backyard or somewhere else somewhat convenient where you can't hear! :)

Hello, my name is Susan, and I also drink WAAAY too much coffee. And I'm on Twitter, too, because Meredith made me. I may be stalking you.

Between Winter and Homeschooling (where they're spending a lot more time in the same space than before...? right?) bickering is bound to happen... hang in there!!
