No I'm not jittery. Why do you ask?

So...

Yesterday I had breakfast with some friends, did a few errands and then went to visit another friend...

...when I got home Mr. Jenny asked me if I had had a good time, but when I answered the question, he kept looking at me quizzically...

I'm not sure why...here's what I told him...

...

i met up with cyndie and debbie and we had breakfast and talked and talked and talked and cried and hugged and it was really fun and i really miss those guys gosh i really miss them why don't i see them more often and don't you think it's just ridiculous that i'm too busy to see friends and just because it's christmas isn't an excuse not to see them the rest of the year and they gave me this beautiful bowl they made in ceramics just for me and musette even threw the pottery just because...

DEEP BREATH...

she misses me and don't you think that's sweet that she misses me but i really miss cyndie and debbie and did i tell you how wonderful it was to see them and then i had to to take care of some other stuff and did i tell you we had to meet early for breakfast because debbie has a job now so after we i got done there i went to do some other stuff and then i was driving by the orange patch and i saw they had a sale and i was going to run in there but...

DEEP BREATH...

instead i talked to roxie and she had a family thing and i wanted to see her because i haven't seen her in a long time either which is really sad don't you think it's sad and did i tell you debbie got a job and then i stopped to get coffee for roxie and me and did you know that they have a new flavor now there which is peppermint for christmas and you can get it mocha or plain but i just got gingerbread which i liked but i didn't love and...

DEEP BREATH...

ok so and then i drove to roxies and i was surprised that the coffee was still hot and her house looks really beautiful for christmas and do you know i need to get the christmas stuff decorated because...

I didn't even need to take a deep breath, but Mr. Jenny totally interrupted me. "How much coffee did you drink this morning?" he asked me.


"Why? why are you asking me is it because i'm in a good mood don't you want me to be in a good mood don't you think that it's good that i'm in a good mood and..."

He interrupted me again, "How much?"

I had to think for a moment and then I replied, "well...i had a cup this morning and then i had like three ummm maybe four cups with breakfast but they weren't giant cups they were more little medium cups or maybe even smallish medium cups and then ... ummm.... i guess i had a pretty large gingerbread latte and i forgot to get it decaf and did you ever hear the joke about the cow and..."

And you know what?

Mr. Jenny interrupted me again to say, "You've been complaining you're way behind on Christmas. Maybe you should take advantage of this buzz and get stuff done."

So...

I did.

But I don't think I was really truly totally jittery.


I wonder why he asked?

And, really. The heart palpitations are just fine now.

Sigh...

Paula said...

Lol...I'm glad I'm not the only one living on coffee these days!

Terra said...

that is so funny. I had coffee in my dreams last night. I don't drink it, but I did in my dreams. Perhaps you were sending me some of your buzz....

J. Kwiatkowski said...

I had to put a second pot on myself, yesterday. Some days just need a poke with a sharp stick.

Lucy (aka RHarper) said...

LOL! Just......LOL!

Theresa said...

Tee Hee Jenny! You are the Best! Thanks again for featuring Studio 48 Tango in one of your giveaways!

Jocelyn said...

You have me laughing..I mean really a big ole belly laugh.....

Hey you gave me an idea...I am so stinking tired....I am going off to brew another pot of coffee!!!!

You always make me smile!!!!!

Deb said...

oh Jenny I love your stories...even on a coffee high..I started feeling like I was on it with you.....Mr. Jenny knows you so well...

Susan said...

I think I need a coffee high today. I have lots to do before Christmas and this sounds like the best way to get things done.
Thanks for the idea,
Susan

Jeanie said...

Ahh, coffee! The nectar of the caffeine gods. I hope you got a lot done with your buzz before you crashed.

Busy Bee Suz said...

You are so funny. Coffee: it's what keeps us going!

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Great laugh, this is perfect. I am making a pot of really strong coffee right now, I have a ton to do. Hugs, Marty

MrsJenB said...

LOVE this!! I love the way you write, so much.

This reminds me of the thought I had while walking carefully to work over a thin layer of snow while holding my very large, totally packed bag on one shoulder and a venti Starbucks in the other hand. "If I go down, the bag can go in the street for all I care. I'm saving the coffee." Pretty sad!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

This is so me with a few too many cups of coffee in me. I love this and it made me smile for sure. You must have calmed down so you could post this...oh and I do love Mr Jenny!

NatureGirl said...

Oh Miss J...you never disappoint! Merry Christmas...

ImagiMeri said...

So Girlfriend, did your granddaughters ever tell you what the secret was??? They are so adorable, I can't wait to have the class. By the way, you'd think Mr. Jenny knows that you run on high speed regardless of how much coffee you've had. I've been shopping with you.....you go really fast!!!

Love ya'
Meri

Bossy Betty said...

So funny! Love that magic juice!

Jackie said...

I was with you on the deep breaths :p I really like those dots on the i's haha , they're cool and cute .

It must have been a busy day yesterday .

Christy said...

LOL! that is awesome! I love it ... totally exactly how I am after I drink two cups of coffee

Jo said...

you cwazy wabbit you!!! sounds like it was a fun but fast, very fast ... day!

Tina said...

Have you seen "Hood Winked"? Best kids movie EVER. The Engineer, who only watches movies once, has seen it at least 10 times. Anyway, there's a coffee scene in there that's a scream involving a squirrel and a latte...you sounded just like that :-) Thanks for the giggles.

Ames said...

Too funny Jenny. There's nothing like a good coffee buzz. In my.. ummm... "younger" days I could drink a pot of mud everyday. I am sending you a pic of a sign I have hanging in my laundry room. I knew we were like minds!~Ames

Sue said...

Exactly. That's why I gave up coffee long ago.

I'm in a little bit too much of a "good mood" already.

;)

Judie said...

Sounds like someone went to Starbucks. They add extra caffeine to the coffee.

H said...

Aaaaahhhhh Coffee! I'm afraid I drink far too much of it. Don't think I ever get quite THIS hyper though!

Theresa said...

Oh Jenny, I hope you come down from that coffee buzz at some point! Poor Mr. Jenny having to listen to you go ON AND ON:) Hehe I know he enjoys your wild stories! HUGS!

BEAR's Mom said...

~victoria~

Cheryl D. said...

I hate when I drink too much coffee. I actually don't feel good. But when I don't drink coffee, I don't feel great either!

5thsister said...

Ha! we both had caffeinated posts today!

Jennifer said...

You are ridiculous! Your blog always finds a way of putting a smile on my face. :)

Country Dreaming said...

Oh sooooooo funny!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Melinda

Stef said...

Men....they think they know everything. But thanks for the hint for getting some things done around my house. If only I had Roxie living by me....

MusingMom6 said...

And, this is why I love coffee!!

It smells soooo good! It tastes so good!!

And you really can get alot done if people will leave you alone. :o)

Dana @ Bungalow'56 said...

Coffe seems to play a big role in our lives! We are kindred spirits in this regard Jenny. We've had to cut back. I never miss an opportunity when I'm out though to indulge. Its easy to lose count when your out with the girlfriends isn't it.
Take care,
Dana
PS I am having a linky party this Monday and have asked friends to share some Joy they are finding this Christmas. Anything, old and/or new. Would love for you to give us some good old Jenny food for thought.

Splendid Little Stars said...

so perfect!

Holly said...

How you wrote this is brilliant...and scary enough I was reading out loud really fast...because I had about 10 cups of coffee today. I have a sign in my kitchen that says "Drink Coffee...do stupid things faster with more energy." Now I do not think I do stupid things for the most part, but that coffee ramps up my day for sure!

Gattina said...

Mr. G says that the only thing he misses at me is a "Stop" button !

Susannah said...

Wonderful! You do make me laugh. :-)

My name is PJ. said...

I resemble that story. It's tough when you're what I call "a cheap drunk"...someone who is easily influenced by a small amount of caffeine, alcohol or even the cough syrup they prescribe you when you have raging bronchitis.

Bonnie said...

Oh Jenny, I love your stories. Mr Jenny is so good as the straight man..haha

I'm glad you got to enjoy a day with your friends.

I have to go now and get a cup of coffee to catch up with you.

Pondside said...

I know I can always laugh when I visit your post!
Coffee - I came to it late in life, and I love it. My daughter is working part time at Starbuck's and I am enjoying it!

paige said...

This is so cute. I wish I could drink that much coffee and be productive, but my heart would just explode, which would be messy, and cause more trouble. :)

Pat Tillett said...

Whew! I was staring to get winded... GREAT post and just too darn funny!
I know the feeling! I'm trapped in the house and have had way too much coffee.

Willow Lake Stitches said...

Oh, Jenny.... YOU are so funny ! I just love you.
From your SLOW friend, Beth. ( YOU know what I mean. . . didya hear the latest? I just had surgery for a torn rotator cuff ! WHAT NEXT ! ! ! !)

Pearl Maple said...

Too funny Jenny, it must have been that large gingerbread latte that put you over the top with the caffine intake.

Happy holidays to you and your family.

Amy said...

Ha! Eating out with friends is always so much fun. And I hope you got a lot done with your Coffee energy!

P.S. I linked to you on my post today. The quilt is done and beautiful, and makes me so happy! Thank you!

PERMANENT POSIES said...

Awesome coffee! Gotta love it, right? I could have so followed that conversation. My husband says I tell him things that happened to friends of friends cousin's dog.....whatever! Keep up! ha
