You Said It, Coffee Cup.

Posted on | September 17, 2012 | 6 Comments

I forgot the little ones were out of school for next 3 weeks.

So I was up at 5:15 am, stumbling around the kitchen, hoping to gulp down a cup of coffee, catch a bit of news, and start the bacon for breakfast before they got up at 5:30 am.

But it was still quiet at 5:40 am.

Which is when it dawned on me.

There would be no kids awake until the older ones got up for school at 6:30 am.

Which meant I had an entire pot of coffee and 2 pounds of bacon.

All to myself.

For the next hour.

You said it, coffee cup.  You said it.

    And silence. You forgot to add that you had all that silence too. That’s always my favorite part.

    My early morning alarm clock is my dog. Let’s just say, she has a very cold, wet nose.

    3 weeks…whew! We’ll be camping on the river for the next three weeks, right here by the Haw. We’ll teach 4th graders for the morning then run around all afternoon. Come join us!
