Journey of my Java

8:30 am My conception
gourmet vacuum sealed gourmet beans ground and immedietly dispersed into filter with bottled water
8:35 am I am ready
8:50 am Still waiting but it's cool, er, warm, I'm in a thermal caraf
9:10 am Dumped into a cup and then....screams heard from odd tiny voices and I wait
9:25 am Placed in microwave for 20 seconds
9:26 am Half/half, sugar and cinnamon added to the cup
9:27 am Screams heard again--mutterings of needing help on the potty and finding the greatest common factor
9:48 am Microwave 20 seconds
9:55 am Taken out of microwave despite constant beeping for almost ten minutes
9:56 am Journey to school desk, go over spelling words---aahhhh a sip is taken
9:58 am Baby cries and I am set down once again
10:24 am More coffee added in the cup along with sugar and half/half
10:25 am Screams of 'I'm starving, can we eat' 'I hate that' 'Don't we have anything else?' I wait--If I could sigh I would
10:53 am Microwave 20 seconds
11:15 am removed from microwave and then placed back in 20 seconds
11:16 am The second sip is taken and then there are mutterings of a crappy coffee maker and I am dumped down the drain .

Such is the morning for my cup of java. I blame the coffee maker.

I've had days like these, let me tell ya! This post was really cute.

Is it a requirement that kids are not allowed to enter adolescence unless they protest foods in their early childhood? I mean, all 3 of mine have already met that mark. "I haaaaate this." "Ew." "Can you make me something different?"

It never ends!

Oh man! It really does never end. And all before noon, LOL... I have had days like that. :)

This is very clever! Ah...yes, the microwave was designed for reheating coffee or tea, wasn't it?

Thanks so much for coming by my blog and commenting. All the feedback is really encouraging and helpful.

Isn't that what microwaves are for? Reheating coffee or tea? But then...only SO many times! :)

Thanks so much for coming by my blog and your lovely comment.

My poor tea has the same complaints! Just be glad you can cleanse my digestive tract/give me energy/boost my immune system/clean my kidneys! :)

LOVE IT. Let's go for coffee when I'm in Dallas for Spring Break. Surely Starbucks will have a microwave....

I love this post! So funny because it is so true. Thanks so much for linking. I understand about the carpet one...but you don't have to admit that on the internet! hahaha

Thanks again!

Came over from Elaine's. This is great. Yes, kids can suck the very day out from under us, can't they?

I'm finding it really funny that there was a Gevalia ad on your BlogHer ads while I was reading this! HA HA HA!

That's about the same way it goes here (although I'm usually reheating tea these days). But I do love cinnamon in my coffee too!

Silly coffee makers. I never seem to get to enjoy the 7am coffee until like 2pm. By then I'm way past needed that one cup!
