Folgers Fresh Breaks for when Mom NEEDS a Break!

Most of my days usually start around 9:30 am. Most of you reading that probably think, wow, you get to sleep in. Well, sort of. The problem is my day usually ends around 1 or 2 am. I still get my 7 to 8 hours of sleep they’re just  on a different schedule than most. As I shuffle away from the bedroom I realized I only have about 15 minutes before Emma, my 4 year old daughter wakes up. It gives me just enough time to rub the sleep out of my eyes, drag my tired body into the kitchen and start unloading the dishwasher. Between the unload and putting in a new load I grab a Folger’s Fresh Break. It’s a single-serving packet of instant coffee that just goes right into a mug with some hot water. No fuss, no brewing, just stir it in, add a little sugar and some cream.

After breakfast, cartoons and lunch it’s time to get started on the household chores. On mopping days I like to multitask. The floor gets cleaned and mama gets another dose of a Folger’s Fresh Breaks coffee.

I try to cook most nights and while I’m prepping dinner, it’s Fresh Break time. While my husband is trying to keep the kids corralled I’m usually busy chopping away at vegetables. This particular night my daughter requested potato soup. Then after dinner it’s my turn to hide … err … take a moment for myself. The plan is usually a candle, a bubble bath, a hot cup of coffee and silence. It doesn’t always work out like that with the cat trying to paw his way through the bathroom door.

But my favorite Fresh Break of all is the cup I get to share while cuddled with my husband at the end of the night. We always take an hour or two before bed to catch up on our favorite DVR’ed tv shows.
