So let's sit down over a cup of coffee and get caught up. How do you take your coffee? I used to drink mine black until I was pregnant with my oldest son. Things changed for me--I could barely drink coffee with milk, much less black! As it turns out, my oldest was allergic to dairy and I took a liking to his chocolate soy milk in my coffee. I've never gone back to black. Would you?
So what's new?

If we were having coffee, I'd tell you how excited I am to go to Florida this month. Every winter, my parents spend about 6 weeks on Anna Maria Island, and we've taken the boys down there since my youngest was a baby. Last year I went by myself, and this year will be the same. My oldest has to work and my youngest has sports. The coaches frown upon kids missing practice. My husband doesn't want to leave the boys home alone. As much as I'd love to have all of them with me, I kind of have to admit that I'm looking forward to some "me" time. I'm hoping to see Mary Beth! My dad gets antsy if someone borrows his car. I love my parents dearly, but I may need an escape vehicle, so I rented a car.

What would you tell me if we were having coffee? Are you planning any spring break trips? Are you a baseball fan? Do you have any news about your kids? What races are you planning on this year? Do you do those Facebook quizzes?
