If We Were Having Coffee

If we were having coffee I would tell you that it has been a very good week!The schools were on fall break which meant I was technically off of work. I ended up going in Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday though to help out and make a little extra money. Me and my lady decided to take off Thursday and Friday together. We wanted to spend some quality time together. It was only two days but it was very nice.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am bummed to see October go. Halloween is my favorite holiday and this years was the best one ever! We went to haunted houses, watched all my favorite scary movies, carved pumpkins, and went to an awesome party! We went as a lion and a lion tamer, which was our second choice for a costume. Our first idea was to go as “Edgar Allen Hoe” and “A Pimp Named Raven”. Maybe next year.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I was very surprised and happy to hear from my friend Brittney yesterday. Brittney joined the Air Force some time ago and has been in basic training. I haven’t heard from her in what feels like forever and yesterday she text me! She finally graduated and now we can talk for awhile again, before the military takes her phone again. She wants me to write her more letters. She knows I had been trying to write more but she left before I could really get into it. I think she just wants to read something by me. It makes me feel good that she went off to join the military and travel and have all kinds of great experiences but she still thinks of me.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I have to cut this short because today is family day. One a week my family gets together for a few hours to catch up with each other and eat a good meal. I’m super tired today and not sure I’m in the mood to go but I try to remember that most families don’t (or can’t) get together the way my family can so I had better go. It’s nice that we do it and it’s important to show up and let my family know I care.

And so I’m off. I hope you all had a good week too. I’d love to hear about it in the comments, or if you write your own post let me know and I’ll check it out. :)

One thought on “If We Were Having Coffee”

  1. If we were having coffee, I’d be quietly listening to your stories, making the appropriate “I’m listening” noise when needed. Your week sounds lovely and it is obvious you savored it. My week has been filled with moving boxes and sorting through more crap than a person should have to in one sitting. I see no end in sight but it must end soon because I have to get this show on the literal road asap, hopefully before winter snows accumulate in New England. If we were having coffee I’d be nibbling on biscotti, looking like a demented squirrel, and looking forward to my second cup and prolonging the work-avoidance as long as possible.
