If We Were Having Coffee…All Smiles Around Here

If we were having coffee...I would tell you that last night around eight, my husband noticed that his car had a flat tire.  He also discovered that one of the headlights in Miss Dee’s Beetle was out.  This was after Mr D had called him to say he needed someone to rescue him because he’d locked his keys in his car and after he’d cleaned up cat pee off the carpet.  But you know what? None of it mattered because the Philadelphia Eagles were heading for NFC Championship and as far as hubby was concerned all was right with the world!

Now,  this morning when the temperature is around 18 degrees and the D-man is  outside trying to maneuver the tiny wires out of the headlight while simultaneously running the air pump to pump up the tire  enough so he can at least get it to the garage (coming inside every 10 minutes to warm up his hands) he might not feel quite so calm.  We’ll see how it all plays out.  I do know that last nights game was exciting and nerve wracking and if the Eagles hadn’t been able to pull it out things would have been a little different around here. Even Mr D knows that if they’d have lost he would rather have walked home than call his father to bring him his spare key.

Since I do realize that not everyone out there is a football fan (and to be honest, if I wasn’t married to the super fan himself, I wouldn’t be either) we can talk about other things while we enjoy our French roast. Speaking of which, I had a mini panic attack while trying to make coffee this morning because the Keurig was not cooperating.  It just stared at me making horrible sounds.  Thank goodness for the internet because it turned out to be an easy fix.  Not even an Eagles win would have improved my mood if I had to start my day coffee free.

In other news this week,  our school had a delayed opening on Tuesday thanks to the ice storm that hit the northeast Monday night.  Then Friday was a half day for the students so that we staff could have one of our required in service trainings.  It’s been so long since we’ve had a regular full week of school that I’m not sure I can handle it anymore.  Luckily this is a three day weekend (thank you Martin Luther King Jr) making next week a short week as well, so I can put that whole thing off a little longer.

Miss Dee and I watched the whole Golden Globe thing last week and, totally avoiding any political discussion here because this is my happy place, we had fun  checking out the fashions and seeing the celebrities out and about.   Of course, the Oscars are really “MY SHOW” but the Globes are a good warm up.  She and I really like the Netflix show “Stranger Things” so it was fun to see the cast there.  It was disappointing that they didn’t win anything but there’s always next season. We pretty much binge watched seasons one and two.  Miss D even subscribed to Netflix herself so she could watch.  The show “Handmaidens Tale” got some attention  as  well as a movie title “The Shape in the Water” neither of which I  have seen.  There are a lot of films out that I would like to catch if only I had the time and the money!  Eleven dollars for a movie ticket is a little our of my comfort zone. I am planning on going to see “The Phantom Thread” with a friend next week.  It looks pretty good so I’ll let you know what I think.

Well, my coffee is gone and I guess it’s time to be productive.  There are bills to pay and wash to be done.  Miss Dee is the only one who has to go out to work this fine Sunday but the rest of us have a list too.  Mr D has to take an hour long online course to prepare him for the online course he starts on Tuesday (🤔?)  I know.  We don’t get it either but it’s a requirement. So that will keep him busy for a bit and D-man, as we know, is working his way through car maintenance which is going better than expected.  While I’ve been occupied here, he managed to remove and replace the headlight bulb and pump up the tire enough to take it to the garage to get a plug.  So I guess all really is right with the world, or at least in our little corner of it.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a great Sunday.  Please make your own Coffee Share Post (hosted by Eclectic Allie) or comment below so I can hear all about what’s going on in your corner of the world!

    I have been on and off infrequently lately, but..oh…how I have missed your coffee blogs. Always so fun and enjoyable to read! Hope your New Year is a great one!
    I couldn’t get into Stranger Things, but your daughter is right about music from the 80’s. 🙂 However, on Netflix, I do LOVE The Crown, and The Young Victoria. As well, if you like movies or TV about the Revolutionary War, you might enjoy the four seasons of Turn: Washington’s Spies – based on a true spy ring. Enjoyed hearing about your weekend.

    Short week for me too.. I’ve never watched any of the award shows but it would have been neat to see my fave actors from Stranger Things.. I have the theme song as my ring tone, LOL! Thanks for the coffee!

    • Oh boy! I wonder if my daughter has realized you can do that? She is hooked on the music sound track too. She said “Hey, you guys had great music in the eighties!” Like I didn’t already know that!

        Haha.. awesome.. Yes, download the Zedge app (Android, not sure about Apple) and search for Stranger Things..

  3. So much of life’s ups and downs, the little details that take our time and our attention.
    I work tomorrow, but my entire family will be home. It’s sad.
    There’s football on my tv now, and wash goin in the laundry, soon I’ll be done with the internet and move on to books 🙂
