A few weeks ago, my coffeemaker broke. Let’s just say is was a rough couple of days. I was in mourning. It had been with me through sleepless nights, 60-hour work weeks and jet-lag. I even brought my coffeemaker ON VACATION WITH ME. No joke.
My relationship with coffee is deep and its real. I make at least 5 cups a day. But I don’t drink that much.
Let me explain.
I always make a cup of coffee first thing every morning. But I usually only get through half that cup before misplacing it somewhere as I try to get the family out of the house. Then I make another cup, that I’m drinking as I do some chores. Which I then misplace. Then I sit down at my desk to work. Typically I can keep track of this cup, since I’m not moving and all. Then I get my afternoon cup of flavored coffee (My fav is Dunkin’ Donuts Mocha!)
I find coffee cups in the strangest places… the windowsill of the bathroom, on the bookshelf in the family room, my son’s dresser, outside on the front steps, on the shelf over the washing machine, in the waiting room of music lessons… Ask my husband, as this is one of his favorite things about me and it doesn’t drive him crazy AT ALL. I did a quick spin around the house and found three mugs this morning:
Its really bad when he travels for work and there isn’t a helpful spouse to go around and collect my half-finished coffee cups that are sprinkled around the house and load them in the dishwasher. Then I have that horrible moment when I go to make my afternoon-pick-me-up-cup-of-coffee and there are no more mugs left. Then I have to go around and try to find them or resort to using a Christmas travel mug in August.
