Virtual Coffee

I came across this meme on Lucky Number 13’s blog and I really like the idea, so please join me in a cup of:


My coffee this morning is hot and black.  I finally have a settled enough stomach to enjoy it the way I prefer it so the creamer is once again left on the shelf.

If we were having coffee today I would tell you I am scared.  I would tell you I am starting to worry about never getting better and wondering what I will do to provide for my family if I can’t work consistently.

While we sipped our steaming drinks and nibbled on something delicious I would share my happiness at my relationship.  My giddiness at having someone in my life who tries every day to make me laugh.  I would share stories of his silly antics in the ER and the way his voice changes for each character when he reads to me. I would tell you we are excited he is moving in, and that we are setting up a weekly meeting to handle any trepidation we might feel.

If we were having coffee today I would talk about how proud I am of my daughter.  I would tell you she is amazing and strong.  I would explain how brave she at school each day and I would brag about the computer game she programmed in creative engineering last week. I would also tell you that she spends as much time as humanly possible with earplugs in her head listening to music shut off from reality. Cause, teens.

I would tell you about my son.  About how cuddly he still is and about how happy I am to find him curled up in a quiet corner reading books when I least expect it.  I would tell you we are trying to work on his writing by exchanging letters and that he is worried about Penny eating his stuffies when she moves in.  I would tell you he agonizes between the seemingly Herculean task of saving up for his longed for WiiU and purchasing yet another set of stuffies.  He has an addiction.  Our house is full to the brim with plush representations of Iron Man, Mario and Luigi, Pikachu, you name it.

I would tell you about my work and how wonderful they have been in supporting me through this.  I would tell you about the people I share my day with and about how much I miss them.  How much I hope I can get better and get back to the office so I can joke around with them and create again.

Well, my coffee is empty and my head is tired.  I hope you are having a fabulous day! Leave me a comment about your coffee conversation!

  1. Hello Friend! I will settle for virtual coffee…For Now. I expect you to be all up and out and about in the VERY near future, as my plots and schemes aren’t going to make themselves happen without you. Nothing too nefarious. Just some mild mayhem. Between 3 and 4 PM. Only on Sundays though – I have children 🙂

    I’m glad you are still writing here. I just wanted to pop over for love and support, because I think very highly of you. Keep your chin up.
