If We Were Having Coffee

If We Were Having Coffee

magazine and coffee

If we were having coffee I would tell you I am currently reading My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman and I am not really enjoying it. If I weren’t reading it for review I would have DNF’ed it. So I am struggling a bit.

If we were having coffee I would tell you how awful August was and how finally I am feeling better. I would also explain how it makes me sad that the last month of summer was ruined and I didn’t get to do all the things I had planned.

If we were having coffee I would explain how much I miss my parents and wished we lived closer to them or they to us. Another thing I was hoping to do this summer is host my parents at Daniel and I’s first home, but that didn’t happen – among other things. Maybe this fall? Or winter?

If we were having coffee I would tell you how Daniel and I are still in the process of unpacking everything. We’re slowly but surely getting the furniture we need to get things organized and set up. Does one truly ever have everything done? Highly doubtful. But we did buy a filing cabinet and assemble it this morning!

If we were having coffee I would do my best to express the mixed feelings I have about going back to work Tuesday morning. You would already know that I am a teacher and that it’s my first time teaching full-time in three years. When I am at school, like I was so much last week (for in-service, classroom set up, and open house) I am fine. When I am at home relaxing, reading, blogging, watching TV, spending time with Daniel or my friends, or sleeping in, or remembering how crappy August was I get anxious. I’m not quite sure what all the mixed feelings are for. I love my job. That’s why I would talk to you about it and you’d set me straight.

If we were having coffee I would tell you how excited I am about this glorious fall weather we’ve been having. I was just telling Daniel the other day as it was raining and windy from hurricane tropical storm Hermine that I could deal with weather exactly like that 5/7 days a week. The other 2 days would have to be warm and sunny.

If we were having coffee I would ask what you’ve been up to. Because that’s what friends do.

Thank you to Jaime @ The Perpetual Page Turner for sharing her most recent “If We Were Having Coffee” post which inspired me to do one of my own.

  • I loved this post! Hugs!

    And if we were having coffee you’d be the only one drinking it, but I’d give you a big hug and tell you that I understand. My August was terrible, too. And I think you’ll be amazing when you start back teaching!
