Company Girl Coffee 9.11.09

company girl coffeeGood Morning Ladies!  It’s a great morning to grab a warm cup of coffee or tea. The clouds are looming, the temp is near 70 and the ground is wet with the rain from last night!

I hope this week has been a great one for you all.  Mine was up and down and generally like a roller coaster!  I had a nice weekend, dinner with adults :) time with “the girls” and time with the family!  Podcasts, swim lessons, piano lessons, play auditions, and I even managed to get my own haircut!  Whew, I’m tired just writing this. LOL.  With DH out of town for a few days I was in charge of dropping DD off at school. I’m not a walking her into her class mom, I’m a drop of in the parent drive up line mom!  I don’t think DD likes that very much but I am what I am.  At least we still keep a normal schedule when Daddy is out of town.

Today is a day of remembrance.  I’m trying to be in that frame of mind.  I pray for the friends and families of our lost ones.

I hope you all have a great week and I’ll be pursuing all of you Company Girl’s blogs!

Hello Company Girls! MuMo Dawn here – I am so glad to be able to visit with you all this week! Last week the family and I met up with my inlaws for a short family vacation.  I thought I would have internet access (I mean, are there really places without it??) but was sadly mistaken! Talk about serious withdrawal! I think I broke out in “no internet access” hives! Lol! Anyway, we had 4 days of family together-ness, including good scenery, nice weather and even better coffee.  Normally I make good coffee at home, but due to my enforced “cheapness” I make it really weak.  My father in law however, makes strong, awesome coffee, and between him, myself and my sister in law – coffee was at times the main focus of the day.  It was so nice to pour a good strong cup and take it out on the back deck and listen to the river flow just off in the distance.

It was a lovely vacation, but I am so glad to be back at home.  I am back at work this week – editing images, placing orders and planning for the holiday rush of photo sessions. I hope it is a busy holiday season for me.  The past couple of days with the boys have been rough.  We’ve had lots of fighting, messes and lots of time outs, and I am sad to say I have hollered a lot more than I like to.  But today, in remembering the events that occurred 8 years ago, I am thankful for the baby who refuses to nap; thankful for the peed on clothes to wash and the dog puke to clean up off the floor.  Because, I am so blessed to have these “difficulties” in my life, and I know how easily and quickly it can all be taken away.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  I wish you well. Thanks for stopping by!

~Dawn

    Ooooh – good stuff here.

    Kim – I think our hubbies are similar. He drives our oldest to PreK 3 mornings a week, and I pick her up. I’m like you – park and drop off at the curb but she’s only 4 so I still walk her in if I need to take her for a change…

    Dawn – I so envy the sound of a river and a great cup of coffee – and can TOTALLY relate to the hives!!! I would have SERIOUS withdrawal from my computer… Whew!!! Glad you made it!

    Dawn- I am glad you survived the no net time. I don’t know what I would have done. lol

    I want to be the walk to school kinda mom, but I think I’ll end up as the drive up line mom. We’ll see…I have a few years to work at it…

    Sounds like a relaxing vacation, Dawn. I, too, have hollered too much. We can’t take our times with loved ones for granted. Thanks for the reminder.

    It’s difficult when the hubby is away and we have to do double duty isn’t it? Hope you have a good week!

    Thanks for the coffee girls. I haven’t gotten to my own coffee post due to a sick little one. He’s doing much better today though. I hope both of you have a lovely weekend!
