Peanut Butter and Coffee

Today was one of those days. You know, the kind of day where you wake up to your mother in law knocking on the front door because you've overslept. You should be ready to dash off to work and instead you're half asleep letting MIL/ babysitter in, hair disheveled, wearing a ratty white t-shirt and your huge over-sized pj bottoms with a 6 inch rip down one leg. The thought has to cross your mind, "wow, I bet she's questioning the "gorgeous" creature she let her son marry. And why didn't I sew up that rip a month ago when I'd planned too?"

I contemplated for one second stopping at Starbucks for coffee this morning but my resolve has grown quite strong so first thing (after my chipper morning greeting) I headed to the kitchen to get coffee on. I grabbed a dirty cup (that had coffee in it earlier) from the counter and whipped it onto my single serve coffee maker. No, it's not a k-cup thingy. It's one of those Hamilton Beech scoop ones. You put regular grounds in but it uses a metal mesh single serve strainer instead of coffee filters. I then made my son a smoothie, got dressed, grabbed two cookies and my cup of coffee and ran out the door.

I was on the way to work when I noticed that there was peanut butter all over the bottom of my coffee cup. Really?!?!? What a day!

  1. Hee Hee. We all have days like that..... well, maybe not QUITE like that, but you know what I mean.
    I hope your day starts off better tomorrow. :)

    1. By the time I got to work I just had to laugh about it. Luckily work went well. I was a little worried that the entire day was just doomed :)

  2. Ahhahaa :)))) Funny. I love when it's possible to turn a day like that around, like you did.
