Coffee Makes the (my) World Go 'Round

Ahhhhhhhh .... coffee.

I'm having my first of the day.

It's 11am.

Usually I'm pushing the buttons on the coffee maker before my eyes are fully awake, feeling around for the right place to put my mug under the spout of my Keurig coffee maker. (If any of you are coffee lovers, and you don't have a Keurig, it MUST be on the top of this year's Christmas list! They are AMAZING. Fresh brewed coffee in your hand in less than one minute. Yum!)

Days like this are those busy days that you hop out of bed, start getting things done, and finally realize you haven't had coffee! (Oh, the horror...)

Oh, how a coffee makes a day so much better. One of my favourite things is settling at my desk at work with a big cup of coffee. There's something about curling your fingers around that warm cup that somehow makes checking your e-mail and compiling your to-do list that much better ... kind of like the feeling you get working from home in your pajamas!

Today I'm packing.We leave in exactly three hours for the airport to begin our new lives in BC. I'm not a horribly excitable person, so I can't say that I'm necessarily excited, but I'm not particularly nervous either. I guess a better way to say it is that I'm eagerly flying (thanks to Westjet!) into the next chapter of our lives.

Coffee's almost gone now, so I guess that means it's time to get busy again! I have 4 suitcases packed, our lunches made, diaper bag ready and Easton's game-suitcase filled!! Phew! Almost done!

Next step: getting it all to the airport, and managing the cross-country flight with two tired kids.

Hope you'll come back tomorrow morning to find out how the rest of our adventurous day will unfold! And don't forget to have a nice, full cup of strong coffee.

I know I'll have mine!
