Double Shot

Good Monday morning!

I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready to be working again today. After having some days off to spend with family and just do fun stuff, I really don’t want to check my work email or sit here for 8 hours today working on my computer.

Plus, today is my first day to try working from home with this:


Oh, she looks innocent but she’s not :)  In fact, the last 10 minutes she’s been running back and forth from the den to the dining room with some toy in her mouth, growling, jumping around, and shaking the toy.

I’d say the first Monday back from the holidays and my first working Monday of 2010 definitely needs coffee.



I had a banana that was ready to be used (leftover from last week) and I knew exactly what I wanted on my oatmeal today.

  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • cinnamon
  • 3 Tbsp TJ’s Perk Up Your Trail Mix (choc. espresso beans on top)


I also used my new mug this morning! I got this from Nick’s sister and her husband for Christmas, and I love it.


I bought a new Jamaican Blue Mountain blend to try, and it’s pretty good. They didn’t have our basic coffee in whole bean yesterday but this blend is nice. I’ve never had just Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee – I know it’s pretty pricy, just like real Kona, but I may have to find it after trying the blend.


Off to work!

At least Maggie usually sleeps most of the morning so I may be able to get a little work done ;)


What did you do for New Year’s?

We watched the VT / Tennessee game (Go Hokies!) and then watched Travis Pastrana jump the car over the water before going to bed. I actually stayed up until midnight!

  1. I don’t want to go to work either. :(

  2. I’m not ready for work either…

    Maggie is sooo cute! My brother-in-law works from home, and he just got a puppy a few weeks ago. He said it’s quite a challenge to stay focused…

    Have a good week! :)

  3. Good luck working with that cutie around

  4. I am dreading school and work next week :(

  5. I fell asleep on the couch at 9! I am a wild party animal, I tell ya.

  6. I’m kinda ready to be back at work – that’s what I say now though. By tonight I might be singing a different tune.

  7. I love that mug! Good luck working with the puppy – she’s so cute I’d have a hard time being productive!

  8. I just hung out with the fam for New Years…and watched the Hokies (!)

  9. Oh, I j’adore that mug!

    NYE was a partay…New Years Day was recovery. ;)

  10. i went to see pink martini ( a band) and it was great!
    and i’m loving that i’m a sub cause i don’t have to work today :-)

  11. I’m showing my age and fell asleep at 9:30. You can see my post for my rant on staying up for New Years. I just can’t do it!

    Good luck working with the puppy!

  12. Every time I see that little puppy my heart melts! Good luck with your work today…hopefully she’s fast asleep now and giving you a little break!!

  13. We were very low-key and spent the evening with Chinese takeout and the Twilight Zone marathon. The real fun was on New Year’s day, when I had my lunch party.

  14. I LOVE that mug! It’s so pretty. It’s the first thing I noticed in your post. I have a weird obsession with pretty mugs and bowls. You can use them both for the same things. :-)

    I can’t get over how cute Maggie is!

    I went out for a special dinner with Jeff for New Year’s eve and then we watched an imitation ball drop in White Plains, NY.

  15. Sounds like you’re doing a great job with the puppy. I remember when I first adopted my dog (granted, he was a little older) that it was so much work and a shock, but I love him so much that it’s worth it.

    For new years I went to see a singer that my friend and I love play with the boston pops. It was a very fun evening.

  16. I don’t want to work at all either. Everyone in the world should have this day off. Just sayin’. :)

  17. Gosh that dog is adorable!

    I went out to a club/lounge in the City for New Year’s and had a blast! I can’t wait for next year’s celebration :)

  18. Mmm chocolate covered espresso beans on oatmeal sounds really good!

    And I love the verse on your coffee mug, that’s a really great thing to read first thing the morning :)

    I learned how to knit and drank wine with friends on New Year’s Eve. I made it exactly until midnight and then promptly fell asleep! It was a great night.

  19. For New Year’s we watched UP! with our congregation and had a devotional about not looking for happiness in other places.

    I love that mug. So pretty and the verse is so good.

  20. Try going to TJ MAXX, Marshalls and even Ross for your Coffee! I see those kinds of coffees there all the time. I dont know how much you pay, but it’s like $5-6 there.
    My pup Roxie does that same with running from room to room with her toy! They are nuts!! Glad your holiday break went well :)

  21. Your puppy is too cute! I have puppy fever now. I want to see her running around with her toy, how cute!
