If we were really meeting for coffee…

I would have to say that it’s too late in the evening for caffeine, and instead I’m drinking herbal tea. I always use the same mug for tea in the evening. It’s a pink Texas mug that Amy sent me. (Sorry, Janna.) It’s the perfect size for a good cup of hot tea, and I like that it’s the same shade of pink as the Tazo Rest wrapper.

I may be drinking tea right now, but I did stop for a coffee break this afternoon. I had a free drink at Starbucks for my birthday. Java chip frappuccino. Yum!

If were were really meeting for coffee…

I would tell you the reason I’m blogging so late is because we’re having our roof replaced tomorrow. We had a hail storm this summer that resulted in a leak in our bathroom, and the end result is a new roof. (Thank you, Nationwide.)

While the work is being done, we’re also paying the contractor to knock a now-defunct chimney down below the roof line and install a sun tube into our bedroom. This has meant that the evening has consisted of meeting the Mister at Home Depot to buy the sun tube and moving everything from one side to the other side of the attic.

As we speak, the Mister is in the attic drilling a hole where we want the tube installed. So even though I’d like to go to  bed, there’s no point while I can hear him banging around up there.

If we were really meeting for coffee…

I’d say how much I love 90s music. There’s nothing like music from when I was in high school to cheer me up. It takes you back to a time of life when things were much simpler. My go-to cd? Dizzy up the Girl by the Goo Goo Dolls. “Iris” remains my all-time favorite song.

If we were really meeting for coffee…

I’d ask you to continue praying for Jodi. She had her stem cell transplant yesterday and is doing really well. The hospital she’s at calls transplant day her “Re-Birthday.” Remember that I asked everyone to mail her Re-Birthday cards? Her sister Jami reported on her blog today that Jodi has received about 15 cards this week.

That. Is. Awesome.

Keep mailing the cards to let Jodi know that we’re thinking of her. You can get a mailing address from her CaringBridge site or email me. Jodi has 100 days before she comes home to South Carolina; let’s make sure she knows we’re thinking of her.

I think that just about wraps it up for today. Thanks so much for meeting me for coffee. Please tell me how your week is going so far.
