Everyday Life

Welcome back, my love!

I loved you for so long...
then you had to go away...
but since the last school bill's been paid...
you are back with me to stay!

yes, Praise God for his provision! It was truly of necessity for me to give up coffee when Mark and I started seminary...crazy you may say, but one of the many necessary "crazy" things we did in order to stretch every penny in order to remain debt free through school.

Coffee???
but it is so cheap!

yes, but I am not a true coffee drinker. I guess I prefer a little coffee with my flavored creamer...hence the need to "give it up" for the last 5 years. I did enjoy indulging myself when I went home to mom and dad's...but I have been dying for that bill to be done so that I could "pick back up where I left off"...and pick back up I have! Mark has even mentioned to me that he doesn't think I have skipped a cup since February 17th (the day he paid the final payment)...and I will share that I can now drink it with half and half (another luxury staple back in the Brumbaugh home since February 17th) and no sugar! It makes me jittery....and we all know that is one thing I don't need....

That was a blessing to read through Annie. You have exercised the fruit of patience much more than me! ;-)

So I went off caffeine a few months ago because I realized that it was upsetting G's tummy. I wish I would've realized it so much earlier..... he barely spits up at all now;-) But I did have just a teeny bit after I put him down for the night and.....

wowsers.

here I sit unable to go to sleep.....

but it's been fun catching up on your blog;-)
