I have a severe need for coffee. Being half-way through my second pregnancy, so close to the end of breastfeeding the first one, has been difficult — but only because, once again, I can’t have any alcohol, or coffee.
How grand it might be to grab a cup of coffee to soothe my raging emotions. How sweet to savor a glass of red moscato, or a Mikes Hard Lemonade, or a mixed drink from your favorite restaurant, when one has lost the end of their sanity.
Simple relaxing agents that one might use to indulge themselves for just a moment. A selfish little stimulant that you can wash away your worries with.
No, I’m not an alcoholic. But work with me people, every once in a while you just NEED a glass of wine, am I right?
When life hands you lemons, they insist you make lemonade. What I want to know, where do they find the sugar to do that with?
Life is full of ups and downs, and this week I have hit some pretty heavy downs.
From my grandma dying (which didn’t bother me much, she was a difficult woman to love) on Monday morning, to our car not starting on Monday night, to not having funds available to fix it, to several unnecessary things happening with the car in between….. My saving grace this week is that the landlady is giving us an extension next week, so we can pay partial rent in good faith, up until the extra money starts rolling in.
From Monday, which is Hubby’s birthday, through the rest of the month, I will be in Ohio. And I’m not sure when I’ll be back home after that.
So this has certainly been an “I need to relax with a glass of wine” week. It’s terribly inconvenient that I don’t get to use anything to soothe my nerves during pregnancy. Except like, a Lavender Essential Oils bath— but I’m a mom of a toddler, who gets the time to be in a bath long enough to actually enjoy it?
I’m going to break down and make a cup of coffee……
