What could be more exciting than a Monday? How about a post about water on a Monday.
Here’s the thing… We all know you should drink lots of water and some people do but not me. Sure, after a run I will drink a glass but then things go downhill at about 7:00 am. It’s not that I am drinking a ton of juice or pop (because I am not) nor am I drinking coffee all day (because by 9:00 am I am done with that)… it is simply that I just don’t drink much at all.
Last year things changed… I developed a mild addiction to sparkling water. Honestly, it started when I saw images like this:
Nice kitchen… I should put some S.Pellegrino on my counter… you know, for guests.
But I drank it all and kept buying more.
I briefly toyed with the idea of getting a SodaStream but figured it’d only enhance the addiction so I held off. Plus, I heard the carbonation is not great for your teeth long term. (fact check?)
I then invested in a fancy water bottle hoping the cost alone would guilt me into drinking more water (which it did!).
Our relationship lasted 1 week… then we literally broke up. I didn’t tighten the lid and it flew out of my hand. I was devastated for about 3 hours until I discovered you can order the glass bottle replacement online for $10. This was great but then I got a text from my sister:
Yup… we are suckers for online shopping.
I love my new ceramic water jug. I doesn’t keep the water cold but it still seems fresh. I also love that it reminds me of Family Ties. Remember their kitchen?
I tried to recreate this in my own kitchen but Mike vetoed that. He hates my ceramic water jug and has forced me to keep it in the office. On a happy note, I see it all day, which in the end has forced me to drink more water. I mean really, I don’t even need to stand up for a refill.
In the end, it is a win-win all around.

Please tell me carbonated water is not bad for your teeth!!!!
So good news… i did a very minor fact check and apparently the sugars (italian water, pop or whatever else people add to their SodaStream) is what is bad, not just sparkling water. I am going to investigate further when I take David to the dentist this week.
Oooh, Ive been thinking about that same fancy waterbottle. Is it a waste of time if I’m prone to dropping things? My iPhone screen has been replaced 3 times. Thought it might be durable though, looks like it’s wrapped in silicone?
The design flaw is the handle is the cap so if it is not on tight, it could fall. mine happened to fall from 4 stairs up and land on a stone pathway. the silicone did not save it…
however, it is pretty and the water tastes much better than drinking from a plastic waterbottle.
