Nancy! The Idea that the "vacation went downhill from there" is priceless! I'd love to hear your mother's version of the occasion. Please tell us more stories when you have time. I love this one.

I work at a school with many immigrants from Mexico. Most of the kids tell me about drinking coffee at home.

Word has it that some caffeine helps calm hyperactive kids.

As I recall, that particular vacation went downhill from there. Mother still occasionally mentions how much she enjoyed spending three days in a laundromat, cleaning everything we owned.

I am a storyteller thinking about writing. You know Beverly, I think I will find your old thread about 'who we are' and explain myself.
YES- please do!!

I LOVE my coffee as well!!
Just wanted to mention that when I am on the go I get McDonalds SF Vanilla Iced Coffee, with NO cream. And it is still DELICIOUS!! Sometimes I will add a creamer or 2 of my own to it for 10-20 calories!

I love coffee as well. I usually have several cups a day. I drink mine with Splenda. Also, I'm pretty picky about my coffee--it has to be freshly roasted and freshly ground. Life is too short to drink bad coffee.

I agree with that! I love my coffee black and have never felt like it was "bad" for me! My boys always had "coffee-like-I-like-it" growing up....lots of sugar and cream. They still want it in cold weather now that they're almost grown!

Gina!!!! Hello - haven't "seen" you in a long time! I always said you had the most cheerful avatar photo ever!

Jenny, thank you for the input about breast and acid reflux concerns and I will definitely read about what helped you. Ultimately I got over acid reflux on my own with probiotics, DHL-licorice chewables and papaya enzyme chewables. But of course I realize I could have it again. I had started into a real reflux problem at a time my mother was hospitalized, and I attributed it to my stress/sleeplessness, eating too little (as you mentioned) and the hospital having abundant coffee near her room but not much else. My doctor put me on Nexxium and I wasn't thinking it through , and went along with it. It was a very bad decision for me (causes stomach pain in some people, including me) and took extreme effort/time/mental energy to get off of it because of what they call the "rebound" effect, in which you produce much more acid as you try to stop using the drug.

By the way, chewing gum is very good for acid reflux.

Something about this thread must have gotten to me, guys, because I picked up an instant mocha coffee from the grocery store to consider for a treat (like liesha's coffee-as-I-like-it for her children!). It would be 30 calories, but worth it perhaps to stave off any heavy snacking.

Very much enjoyed the coffee/camping story!

I don't think I could do JUDDD w/o coffee. On my DDs, I drink it for breakfast and lunch--it's the only thing that takes care of my appetite--better than if I eat protein! And on UDs, I have it for breakfast, so I can start eating later in the day.
Thanks for the info!

Though really more of a tea drinker, I was intrigued with the idea of coffee being an appetite suppressor. On my DD yesterday, when I neared exhaustion at 8 p.m., I decided to give it a whirl.

Good news: It surpressed my appetite and woke me up.

Note to self: Don't drink coffee within 6 hours of bedtime. I was up past 3 a.m.! (Never had that problem with tea, that's for sure.)
