I know you are probably wondering what the deal is with the title of my post. I know I would be too!
First of all – I don’t use artifical sweeteners anymore. They scare me.
Second of all.. I am referring to a coffee in this title.. and I also told you last week.. that I no longer enjoy sweetening my coffee.
It was rough getting up this morning. It never hits me right when I get up.. but rather.. when I get on the highway. Suddenly..my energy just leaves my body. (I think my mind tries to trick my body that it is awake sometimes…and my body decided it didn’t want to be tricked anymore!)
So – even though I have my K-Cup supply at school.. this level of tiredness called for something a little more dramatic.
Like…. a large French Vanilla Coffee from Dunks. I wanted to go big this morning. So, I was lazy – went to the drive up.. and ordered a large.. BLACK FV. I wanted to add my own almond milk that I store in the fridge in the teachers lounge.
Get my coffee.. put it in my cup holder..drive 2 min to work. I go to the faculty room and add my almond milk.. put my lunch away.. and head down the hall.. SUPER excited for my first gulp of caffeine.
Oh. My. Sweetness.
I swear.. I almost spit it out. And kept pondering.. why is this sweet wtf is going on .. I ordered a black coffee.
It dawns on me to see if they wrote anything on the cup. This.. is what I found:
HOW.. on EARTH.. can you mistake.. BLACK coffee.. for one with 6 splendas. Oh – and.. I was the only one in the line. No one in front of me.. no one behind me. There also was not anyone inside. It took them a long time to get my coffee.
Probably because they were opening 6 splendas.
Ugh. These are the reasons I was upset:
- My teeth were legit hurting from all the sweetness
- I spent over $2 on this worthless coffee
- I wasted almond milk! In a coffee. That was headed to the garbage.
- No body in the whole school would take my coffee..even when I offered it for free. Waste.
Good thing I have those K-Cups.
I enjoyed.. too many K-Cups today. For me anyway. I have two cups of coffee. I was a little coocoo after the second cup.
In fact – I had such energy that I decided to give all of my kids nicknames. Using only the first syllable of their names. So now I have children in my class including:
They found it hilarious.
I am now Miss Mick.
Today – I got double work out in… kind of. We do some cool things at school – one of them being YOGA! I signed up with our school nurse.. (who is also a Yoga instructor) to do Yoga with my kids today – as a reward for their fab behavior yesterday.
Teachers participate too. So – for 45 minutes.. we practices some basic poses. (Child’s Pose, cat & cow, down dog, chair pose.. Warrior 1, 2 & 3.. Eagle…)
I have some mini yogi geniuses in my class for sure. Some of them have such great balance and posture. It is a lot of fun to do something so different.
Part 2 of my workout – was giving Cardio Kick-boxing another try. And you know what.. I liked it better this time. It was a different routine..and I was more into it. After I felt how SORE my arms were after last weeks punching.. I figured it was a good way to sculpt my arms for summer!
The only bummer was.. half way through the class… I thought my eyeballs were going to fall out. Because of these:
(Yes I removed them half was through the class.. and went on blindly)
I like to get the MOST out of my contacts. You tell me to wear them for a month and then toss them.. I say that means six week.. or until there comes a day where they hurt do bad.. I have to pull them out of my eyes and continue what I am doing.. not being able to see. Woops~
And.. for the second time this week.. Justin prepared dinner for me! He is working at a client that is nice and close to our condo – so he has been getting home before me.. and truly giving me a break.
Yup. That is what you get Justin… when you take my camera and snap self–shots. They are posted for the world to see 🙂

If you wear contacts.. do you wear them longer then you are “supposed to”?
What do you do when your coffee is prepared wrong? It makes me upset. Guess I should have just made it myself in the first place.
