The Coffee Experience: Single Mom Style

I’d like to consider myself to be fairly normal, but why do I find myself watching American Idol reruns on an otherwise productive Saturday afternoon?  Maybe my daughter’s undeniable crush on Phillip Phillips has slightly rubbed off on me.  I don’t know, maybe it’s still within the bounds of normalcy after all.

My AI viewing experience will not be complete without a hot cuppa.  I’m one of those who can’t seem to let a day go by without a cup of coffee.  Brewed or instant, hot or cold, I’m a huge fan.  I don’t know if it’s the caffeine rush or the yummy coffee flavor which helps enhance every experience for me.  Sitting in front of the TV becomes a total indulgence when accompanied with coffee.  The aroma alone helps me live in the moment, oblivious to the pile of dirty laundry looming in the horizon.

As I’m always open to new things, I did a little Googling on the topic of coffee, and hoped to learn something different.  I came across organic coffee.  Simply put, it means growing coffee using methods which do not harm the environment.  In this day and age, anything organic is always promising.

I was especially drawn to Organo Gold gourmet mocha.  Give me anything with the slightest hint of chocolate, and I’m your slave for life.  This particular type of organic coffee is infused with the health benefits of a type of red mushroom.  It’s almost like taking your vitamins with coffee.

This is another one of those Saturdays with my daughter away.  Although I miss her like hell, this solitude does help me reconnect with myself.  With coffee as my companion, I think I may just make it through this weekend…
