What Keeps You Going?

I get asked that a lot. How do you keep it together there fella? With all that is going on in your son's life, dealing with that kind of diagnosis day after day, how do you maintain any energy level at all?

It ain't easy, I'll tell you that.

This helps.

That is a Nespresso machine. It is a handy-dandy little device that makes an Espresso shot in the comfort of your own home. But it's a DAMN GOOD Espresso shot too. Plus it's convenient as hell, there is really no muss or fuss about it. You insert the module of the flavor and strength you like, put the cup under, close the arm, hit the button, let cup fill (takes mere seconds) and then stop the machine.

VIOLA! An instant cup of hot Espresso that is absolutely bar none comparable to any you would find out at a Starbucks or any other coffee shop. And for a lot less money. Well, unless you factor in that the machine itself costs money, but let's not talk about that.

Want one?

Thought you might, so when you decide to actually make a buy go to the Official Nespresso website and browse all the awesome models. Mine is pretty basic.

And say...if you like to have easy access to your pods, or modules, or whatever you wanna call them, there are all kinds of options. Me? I go with a wall mounted stainless steel holder, with the pods sorted by strength, so they are RIGHT there when I need them.

Pretty sweet huh?

Hey...secret time. You thought I was a bit anal retentive, a bit obsessive compulsive, a bit ADHD and all that? I can pull one of those pods out, use it, toss it and be perfectly fine with all the rows of pods not being even.

Jen? She sees any of the rows with one missing she fills it.

Every time, no joke...she can't stand the rows to not be even. Kind of funny, cause I always have the rep as the one who would do something like that.
