Saturday Morning Coffee Routine

Coffee and I have a love hate relationship. I didn’t drink coffee until I met my husband. To say he drinks a whole pot in a morning is very true. He loves coffee, black. I started to try coffee with creamers when I met him (age 22). When I turned 30 and we were frustrated with infertility problems my doctor asked me to cut out all caffeine, goodbye coffee. After almost a year of tests we decided to stop. My husband has 2 children (grown now 23 and 20), so I decided having a child of my own wasn’t in the cards. I know, I know there are other ways…..Thank you. My life is different than most. My husband is 6 years older and not prepared to start his life over at this point. I also don’t really like children. I do love my nephews very much, and focus on being an amazing Aunt. I know I am getting off topic. I haven’t shared about my infertility on here before. I guess because people tend to have opinions and a woman who chooses not to have children (granted God kinda chose for me) doesn’t usually go over well. Yes, I am sad sometimes that I haven’t created life; but in the end I am happy I don’t have a child. Instead of packing a child’s lunch, I pack one for myself and my husband. Instead of pick up lines at school, I get home early to cook gourmet meals. Instead of sporting events on the weekend, I spend my weekends giving back to my community. I never judge women who have children, I am happy for them. In the end it isn’t for me. Anyhow, it took me years to start drinking coffee again. I have found I love iced coffee. Year Round. I take the left over coffee from my husband’s pot, which is twice a week cause he is rushing out the door to work, and I use a shot glass to measure the flavored non-sugar creamer. It’s my favorite. Usually when I get Starbucks it’s a Chai Tea Latte, or my current fav Medical Ball (technically a tea).
How do you like your coffee?
Stay tuned….I will be sharing low calorie meals this month!
