When Justin and I get into something, we don’t do it by halves. When Justin decided he wanted to learn Spanish after having his wisdom teeth out, he sat down with Rosetta Stone. Now he teaches ESL to Spanish-speakers at a local school. When I decided I wanted to live more minimally, I sat down and set a timeline (which we’re actually following, go us!), a budget, and a daily schedule- with daily plans for the next six months. When Justin decided he wanted to be a coffee connoisseur, we wound up with at least four different coffee preparation mechanisms in our kitchen, and I’m fairly sure there are a few I’m forgetting.
Justin and I have issues with too much caffeine. For me it’s tachycardia. For him, it’s a general crankiness that happens after he drinks one too many cups of coffee. So, we’ve been looking for things we like other than coffee. I drink a lot of water, but that gets boring, and you don’t want to serve it warm. The obvious solution was tea.
