A Cup of Coffee

I read a post this morning about  by of my favorite fitness bloggers, Miz Fit’s Carla Binberg.  It’s such a fabulous post that I will wait here while you take a minute and read it. Go ahead- I’ll be right here waiting for you. If We had a Cup of Coffee.


I’m going to take a minute to tell you what I’d tell you over a cup of coffee this morning:

I am thrilled to pieces and scared to death of attending FitBlogNYC this week.   I know I said I GOT THIS and all that, but I’m struggling with getting back on track. I’ve received a lot of support so I’m going to enjoy the HECK out of the meet up and it will probably just kick my butt into where it needs to be. I’m really hoping to meet some new friends there.

Now that I have a diagnoses of Irritable Bowel Disease and Functional Abdominal Pain for my daughter,  I am both relieved that it’s nothing terrible and disappointed that it’s not something that can be easily fixed.  Both require all kinds of changes and things that are not easy to do with a headstrong teen.  I fear for us all when I remove dairy and gluten from our diets to see how it helps . I’m thankful that the medications that she’s been taking seem to be helping. Most of all, I am so happy that she is relieved and is no longer afraid she was dying of some weird thing and no one was telling her. I am also happy for her that she feels she’s being taken seriously.


I had the most amazing conversation with my boy about Heaven and what it was like. Like, while you are there since it’s FOREVER you can do whatever it is you want to do for as long as you want.  There is no limit to the wonderful time you will have there.  We discussed if while in Heaven you would miss the people who are still alive down on Earth and we decided that you wouldn’t, but when they DID  come on up that you’d be all  “hey!  THERE you are!  Come play!” and that would be that.   We talked about which house you would live in when you got there (whichever one meant “home” to you) and what kind of food would be there. (whatever you wanted) Mostly we talked about how it would be a place of love and peace. Then he and I napped on the porch swing and my heart grew.

I cannot wait until school is out, and yet I am scared of it being over. I’m second guessing not signing the kids up for camp because I plan to be away with them a lot, but wonder about the inevitable rainy days when everyone is bored and  sick of each other. I’m worried about how I’m going to keep it all together.

I like this “cup of coffee” idea that I’m going to do it every week!  Just  a brief synopsis of what I’ve been up to- things that aren’t always  enough  or I can’t find the words for a full post, but things I’d like to share.   What would you like to tell me if we were lucky enough to grab a cup together? Tell me in the comments!
