I just need one sip.

To say I have no motivation lately would be an understatement. I have a million things to do, and I just can't muster the energy to do them. I blame the wedding. In a round about way. See, Kenny and I sat down and determined how much we each needed to set aside each month, and my contribution is roughly equal to the amount of money I spend at Starbucks each month. It was clear. I needed to break the Starbucks habit. I am being a big girl about it, and so far have only cried once or twice. But. The. Lack. Of. Caffeine. Is making me sleepy...

I'm going to be a teacher someday...and "there are NO stupid questions, students!" so...have you tried making your own coffee with the beans from Starbucks? I know, I know, it's not the same...but damn those wedding expenses!!

Kenny bought me a really fabulous espresso machine for my birthday a few years ago. Plus I even own all of the fancy syrups that they use to make the drinks. Yet, somehow, it isn't the same.

I did just go get a gallon of iced tea from the grocery store, though. That should help. Mmmm, sweet tea.
