There was a Keurig under the tree at my parent’s house for Greg and I. In reality, this was not a gift for us, but for Grace who loves all things electronic. This was the "gift of the day" in her opinion. I think the only thing that would have topped it would be if she was gifted a Dyson!
For a week we have consumed coffee. We have tried medium roast, dark roast, half decaf, hot cocoa, tea. I had to break the news to her that after the holidays we would not be buying KCups which are usually not organic and are not recyclable. We would be using the little reusable cup that can be packed with our own favorite blend from Trader Joe’s......
Jittery does not even explain how I feel. Way way to much caffeine consumption! Serious detox is needed. I know to do this slowly and carefully after landing myself at the doctor’s office trying to go cold turkey a few years ago.
One thing that will help me is massive hydration. Simple water. Why is water not so simple? After a large mug of coffee, I don’t want water. I rarely drink anything else all morning. Filtering water is simple. It does not take much time. So why is it so hard to remember? I think I discovered this post @ Mama Scout to remind me to take better care of myself so that I can take better care of my family.
I have to get us in the habit of drinking water. Beginning now.
Use fun glasses. My girls won’t remember to refill an 8 oz glass over and over so I give them one big jar and they can work on it at their own pace.
You are never too old to sip from a straw. I found great stainless steel straws on sale for $3.00 each at WestElm.
Hair bands make great glass identification tools!
Flavor your water. My favorite is plain lemon, but today I added orange and fresh parsley (that I picked from my counter top parsley plant that I have been able to keep alive in January thanks to these planters also from WestElm).
Use the peels as air freshener!
