Coffee...

My friend Jesse put something on Facebook today that totally cracked me up. He said, "When someone says "I don't like coffee" I just hear "I hate babies, Jesus and feelings like love & happiness." That made me think about when I started liking coffee.

I've always liked the smell of coffee, but I didn't actually like coffee until I was 26 or 27. When I was pregnant with Miles, Randy and I got to go on a mission trip to the Czech Republic. We were there for 10 days. I want to go back! Like right this minute!
Everyday while we were there our group and the people that were leading us around would stop for coffee sometime in the late afternoon. I don't remember what day into the trip Randy and I decided to try the coffee, but we've been drinking it every since. We're not crazy coffee drinkers that have to have it before conversations in the morning. We actually don't even have it everyday. Although I've been having everyday lately. : )

Soon after we returned from the Czech Republic we went to K-Mart and bought a coffee pot, cute mugs & creamers. We went back home, put all our children to bed, opened up the box, set up the coffee machine, made coffee, drank coffee and THEN an hour later we were still awake and not tired at all. THEN an hour later we were laughing wildly while we jumped on the trampoline at midnight. Yeah, I was still pregnant at the time! HMMMM....do you think the coffee was making us stay up??? We literally had no idea that coffee would do that to us!

Well, recently I realized that Randy had been avoiding coffee. Then the other day he ordered Decaf at a restaurant. I asked him what the deal was and he told me that he didn't like the jittery feeling from coffee so he hasn't been drinking it. I also feel the same way. I only have a tiny little cup of coffee when I drink it in the morning or else I get the "crazies."

Because I get the crazies & because Spencer has been drinking coffee with me in the mornings I have been making it weak. 1.) So I wouldn't get the crazies. 2.) So Spencer wouldn't get too much caffeine. 3.) So I could drink more.

When I found out that Randy wanted decaf and I've already been making the coffee weak I went ahead and switched from

to this:

Half-Caff!!! That should have worked right???

Well, here's the deal. Since purchasing the Half-Caff I've gone from making very weak coffee to making really strong Half-Caff and now I'm actually drinking more caffeine than I was before! Thus, making the purchase useless.

Speaking of coffee...Look what Randy surprised me with yesterday...

What a man! I love him! He makes me feel loved!

AnyWho...Me Likey the Coffee Jesse! and babies and Jesus and feelings of love & happiness!

I think there's some sort of evil plot going on with the half caf. I bought some and took it over to Elliott's parent's house when his brother was in town and the taste, oh my gosh, the taste was so good! I don't know why. It doesn't make sense to me that the caffeine content would affect the taste. The only reason I can come up with is that they make it better so they won't lose any customers. I'm thinking about giving up on regular Folger's and just buying the half caf Folger's because the taste is so good.
