COFFEE!

We know the coffee. And the rain, but this particular post is about the coffee.

I have a love-hate relationship with coffee. I love coffee and hate when I run out. Coffee is my mommyjuice. It gets me up in the mornings, it keeps me company in the afternoons, it keeps me awake in the evenings. It is my love. My muse. My get up and go. My hand warmer, my forehead cooler. If you were to take a DNA analysis of me, I’m sure at least one part would be related to the coffee bean.

I was pretty excited when I was given the chance to try Peet’s Coffee.Peet’s is a brand that we have not tried yet. I was planning on pulling an old-fashioned coffee switch on my husband. I wasn’t going to tell him when or how, I just was.

But, as is often the case in our family, things took a different turn.

Faith has not been feeling well. Her Familial Mediterranean Fever cycle began. She was grumpy and feverish.  One of the few things that help her feel better during the cycle is hanging out in the bathtub. Since she can not run a bath, or even undress herself, she can’t be left alone in the tub. What that also means is that I spend my time hanging out in the bathroom also. Whoo-hoo. Not.

One morning she woke up extra grumpy. She wanted to rest in the tub NOW. Not after my coffee and breakfast. Not after I had a chance to get out of my jammies. NOW. So I got the water running, got the kiddo in the tub, and yelled down to Jimmy to please….please….PLEASE….bring me up a cup of coffee.

Little did I know, Jimmy had a Peet’s Coffee “Coffee Switch” of his own planned.

Jimmy made my coffee exactly how I like it. With one pump of sugar free caramel syrup and a hearty splash of creamer. I knew right away what he had done! The Peet’s coffee was a bigger, bolder flavor than my usual K-Cup. I usually drink Coffee People Donut House. It’s a medium roast that tends toward the lighter side. The Peet’s was a more intese, richer flavor. I really enjoyed the taste and it was a perfect start to our day.

What fun! I thought I was going to switch his coffee, and instead, he switched mine!

Follow along as I go on the hunt for Peet’s Coffee.
