Hellacious morning...

Pro tip: never hit the snooze more than once when all of your family members need to be out the door in time to get the kids to school and the adults to school/work. 

I still haven't had my coffee.  I've had bit less than half.  Too busy getting the kids dressed and fed, and getting me dressed.  Getting the kids' bags together, as well as mine.  Getting the imp's lunch packed. 

No, my brain isn't working just yet.  And no, I can't go get more coffee from the coffee shop downstairs--the only one who can make the coffee taste good has been transferred out of the coffee shop, because any monkey can make coffee, right?  So, now she's in janitorial.  Brilliant. 

I'm returning to this after an hour or so of break, while I dealt with some small bits of work.  I finished my coffee.  I'm still brain-dead tired, but I'm as awake as I think I'm going to get, this morning, so I'm going to get to work on the next to last chapter of Fire and Forge.  I have through about 1:00 pm on Friday to finish the book without worrying about grading taking time and attention, since today is workshop day and Friday is when the paper is due (all except for one extra student to whom I've granted an extension, due to injury and living somewhere she can't get affordable internet access). 

I've got some housework to deal with after I get home, so now's just about the only time I'm going to have to write until after the kids go to bed.

  1. Yeah, we've all had those days. It'll get better, but you have to watch out for it to happen.

    1. Well, my mom's not spending the night at the hospital (found out she'd gone to the ER with stroke-like symptoms this morning after I'd gotten home). That's an upturn.

    1. My late uncle spent some time in the U.S. Navy...he couldn't drink my coffee. Said it was too strong. ;)

    1. I thought soldiers' coffee was instant out of the MREs...in which case, I'm insulted.
