A Brand New Day

Some days you wake up and you feel like a huge weight has lifted from your shoulders.  That’s my today. I woke up, realized aside from my housework and a few other things I needed to get done today was going to be a nearly stress free day! The first half of the week was all about getting a routine for the first week of school into place.  Wake up, get work done, wake up the nerdlings, get them ready for school and take them to school.  It is a new form of chaos because this is our first year of having 3 nerdlings in 3 different schools. I think, we might actually be getting this down to a smooth method.
However,  I find myself thankful for the school year having started.  This means I have a little bit of time to myself and time to frequent my favorite, very local coffee shop, The Brass Bean. I miss it here during the summer. I love to bring a book or laptop and work or read while enjoying their delicious coffee and wonderful atmosphere.  So if you live in the area make sure to go check them out.  I love my breakfast bagel with cream cheese and refillable cup of coffee, or their chicken salad sandwich is also amazing for lunchtime! I’ve always had good experiences here, quick and friendly service and good food and coffee, what more could a Nerd’s Wife ask for? Aside from the winning lottery numbers…

OH! I also found this mug this morning, that I totally feel applies to my mood this morning. It definitely made me smile when I read it.

I think I might just add it to my collection!   Don’t Let the Muggles Get You Down

Ok, I am off to be productive, ya’ll have a great day!

Cold in Texas, WoD Release and Happy Coffee Moments

 Yep, you read that title right.  It’s cold in Texas, WoD released yesterday but at least I have coffee.

The past few days have welcomed an arctic cold front into Texas, making this car-less Nerd’s Wife  walk the Minis to school. It could be worse. I have actually really  enjoyed the extra time before arriving home goofing off with them and discussing their day. They seem to have enjoyed it as well, though they are all praying for snow. That however, is not a new prayer coming from Texas children. That has been a child’s (and my own) plea for as long as this place hasn’t had regular snowfall. Which is…Forever?

Warlords of Draenor released yesterday. I even managed to log in and play for a couple of hours in the morning – afternoon.  Then I logged out so I could go pick up minis. By the time I got home and tried to log myself AND Nerd Dearest (who was almost home from work.) in we were placed in the login que. That was kinda brutal, but then there was so much lag, and I got disconnected from the server so many times, I gave up and snuggled in bed to watch some TV before sleep. I found out later that not only were the WoW Servers unprepared for the masses, they were under pretty heavy DDoS attack.    From what I could tell, I really enjoyed the newest expansion!  I can’t wait to be able to play some more.

And now I return to my coffee and the great search of  CRPO (car replacement possibility options). I wish you all a warm and cozy day!

Goodness Gracious

Mondays are by general consensus the most difficult day of the week. The weekend is over, and we’ve got to do what we can to compensate for the loss of freedom and happiness. It’s more often the little things that make you smile throughout the day.
Here’s a little thing, Vanishing Tardis coffee mug? Oh yes please!
