I’ve just reached a new low.
You see, I ran out of coffee. Yesterday I finished off my last bag, and I intended to borrow some from my parents because they buy it in bulk from Sam’s … surely they can spare some.
But then I forgot to ask, and then by the time I remembered it was too late at night to do anything about it. So I went to bed kind of dreading daybreak.
I know I was supposed to have quit coffee, and I DID QUIT, for two long days. And then I realized I simply cannot live my current life without caffeine. I just can’t. These children … my husband … the laundry … the physical strength I need to get through the day. I mean let’s be real. Nothing’s getting washed and no one is getting fed and I won’t be carting that monstrosity known as TWO around the house unless I have caffeine. Now I know how I managed to pack on 50+ pounds with each pregnancy. It was the
absurd amount of carbohydrates I ate lack of coffee in my life.
Tomorrow is payday and of course we have NO money so a Starbucks run is out of the question. But suddenly the heavens opened up and I noticed that there was like 1/2 cup of old coffee left in the pot from yesterday. I got super excited, added some water, poured it over the old coffee grounds and brewed myself four cups of new-old coffee. I mean it’s not great. But it’s not horrible.
I really do have a problem.
Next time I plan to buy in bulk.
