Why am I writing this blog?

It seems everyone has a blog about something.. family stories, baby stories, food blogs, more food blogs, travels etc. What else could we blog about that would be interesting to those out there that have nothing to do but surf the net and look for interesting things to read (I'm not sure if this actually counts as reading - it's like my kids reading a photo album during the designated "20 minute reading time"? Besides I have nothing else to do but find another computer project - we all know that work email, personal email, texting, Facebook, and Twitter is not enough (don't put housework on this list). Besides, I've always wanted to write a book - but this seems much easier and it's published right away! How's that for all of us who think patience is a thing of the past?

I've been in the Pacific Northwest for almost a year now and am amazed at all the coffee houses, huts, shacks and drive thru's that are readily available to the locals. How many have I been to already and how many more can I visit?

Let me share these places with you - check back here often for this adventure. I'm setting a goal of going to 30 different coffee "places" by this time next year! Not a lofty goal, but a goal nonetheless.


P.S. I'm really writing this blog because I am babysitting my sisters kids and her husband started a blog before they left, so I thought "Why not?" Kids are old enough to take care of themselves (but I still need to make sure there are no fires) and it's great entertainment, right?
