I’m thankful for MLK day, Alyssa gets to stay home for one more day to recover from flu. She is seriously sick, she might even need more days off to recuperate. I know, Moms will hate me but she will have to go back to school tomorrow with a cough. I’m quite sure I heard the Principal said kids can go to school even with sniffles and cough, but not with fever. So, let the school nurse decide if she can stay tomorrow.


My Monday started with a big mood swing from my little guy. He was crying all that time I was getting ready for work. Poor Elijah, he wanted more attention from hisĀ Momma. He is still sick so I had to go over some stuff with my Mom regarding his medications. Having her here makes everything easier. At least I don’t have to worry about calling in with two kids sick at home…

At exactly eight in the morning, we were driving out the neighborhood. Since we didn’t have to drop off Alyssa to school, we had some time to stop by Starbucks for a much needed drink to jumpstart the day. For years, I have been skipping most weekday breakfast because I am always running out of time. With time management, I am the worst.

Rolly ordered Chai Tea Latte and Blueberry Cake. He made a comment as to why the gal (who took his order) asked him if he wants his latte cold or hot. He’s got a point. If you look at the definition of LATTE, it is supposed to a hot drink. But I guess, the linguistic standards are getting lost with the new world. Good example (by Tonesha) is the # sign. She said that her daughter knows the symbol as a HASHTAG and not as the standard POUND sign. Oh, boy! I just can imagine Alyssa having her own version of things when she gets older…

So, the day finally ended. And I tell you what… Monday is a B. The day ended with two exclamation points!! It happens… there are those that you cannot please. Like David said, “Sometimes, you have to take it with a grain of salt”. In this case, TWO GRAINS of salt. But it’s history. Grateful for Lupe’s cherry Kisses, aside from my morning latte, it also sweetened the rest of my afternoon. It is all good…

Good night everyone!
