Feed the Addiction

So I have this horrible headache this morning. Gee….you think in might have to do with the fact that I only got like 4 hours of sleep? I hit the snooze way too many times, of course. (Really what’s the point? If it’s going off every 5 minutes it’s not like you’re getting any extra sleep? Why then do I continue to do it?) Babyspeak (BS) was kicking my butt yesterday, (well really all week) and it was really getting me down.

But today is a new day.
I’m actually in a pretty good mood, (headache and all). Why you ask?
Well for starters, Toddlerspeak (TS) got up on her own this AM (benefit of hitting snooze too many times). When she does this she’s pretty proud of herself, “I get up by myself mama!” And the result is that she’s (usually) pretty cooperative; the case this AM. No fighting over getting dressed or breakfast or hairdos—so nice. Lots of hugs and “I wuv you mama”—even nicer.
Another reason I’m in a good mood; it’s my Friday. The benefit of working part-time: I have Fridays off! I’ve started planning my day of (relative) freedom (I’ve got TS w/me after all, but that’s the point) on Wednesday. Not sure yet if we’re going to the park or the mall yet, but we’re going. Maybe both—I’m good like that.
Lastly, the real reason I’m a good mood; as we were driving to daycare I noticed, OUR STARBUCKS IS OPEN!!! OMG, need I say more? I can walk to Starbucks from my house! Let us all pause now and give thanks over this small slice of perfection that life has directed to my neighborhood.

Make mine a Vente, single, non-fat, no-whip mocha, Please!!!
