Ode to my Caramel Macchiato

Lately, I can’t seem to get to bed before 1 a.m. I’ve always been a night owl, but it’s a lot easier to be that kind of person when you don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn! Today my kids got up at around 5 (UGH!) while my husband was doing some last-minute packing for a business trip and I swear he must have dropped the suitcase about 5 times before heading out the door! (But I’ll miss you, honey!) 😉 Needless to say, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning–and two comments my 4-year-old son made over breakfast certainly didn’t help:

1. “Mommy, what are all those lines under your eyes?” I just stared at him, blinking. And I was kind of annoyed, to be honest. I know I haven’t been getting a lot of sleep lately, but I didn’t think I was that wrinkly!

2. Moving on in our lovely conversation, I told him that our new kitchen chair leg broke, and he blurted out, “Well that’s just ’cause you’re heavy and you’re ruining it.”

Double whammy! Gee, thanks kid.

Anyhow, on dreary days like this where everything and everyone gets under your skin, I suggest turning to something that you know will never disappoint you. For me, it’s my grande skinny Caramel Macchiato. I’m so happy sipping on mine right now, that I decided to write it a poem:

Today's crankiness crusher!

Oh Caramel Macchiato, you warm up my soul

You’re always there when I need you and make me feel whole

You wake up my mind and help me deal with the day

And you’re only 110 calories so on my butt you won’t stay

We’ll meet again tomorrow, you can count on that

But for now, I’ll enjoy you because you’re where it’s at!


Enjoy the day, everyone!
