My coffee maker threw up.

I woke up at 4:45 AM and couldn’t fall back asleep. A lot of not-so-great stuff is happening at work right now, and I think that’s why I couldn’t doze back off. Around 5:45 I decided to go ahead and get up. I let Loki out back, and then came into my office to check my email. The wireless network connection on my main computer was down, and it wouldn’t come back up. I’m pretty worthless without my coffee, so I let Loki in, fed him and flipped on the coffee maker. While the coffee was brewing I came back into my office to pound on my computer with a rock. About 15 minutes later I went to the kitchen to get my coffee, and it was all over the counter, cabinets and the floor. I think the release valve that allows the brewed coffee to drip into the carafe had become stuck. I wish I’d thought to take a picture of the mess, as it was quite a sight. Anyway, it took me like 15 minutes to clean up the kitchen, and another 30 minutes to clean out all the wet grounds that had backed up into the coffee maker. I swear, every time I thought I had all the grounds out I’d fill the reservoir and there would be more floating on top of the water. So now – an hour and a half after getting up – I’m finally sitting down with a cup of coffee. Like I said, I’m pretty much unable to function until I get some black coffee in me, so this whole ordeal was sort of like trying to thread a needle while wearing mittens.

In the last paragraph briefly mentioned there is some crazy stuff going on at work. By the end of the day yesterday I was so stressed and tired I decided to push my workout off until today. If it had been any other day of the week I would have made myself do the workout, but since it was Friday and I knew I could do it today without it interfering with another workout, I decided to postpone it. I think I’ll wind up having a much better workout today than I would have yesterday.

Well, now I’m really behind on things, and I have quite a lot to do today. I’d better wrap this up and get breakfast going. I’ll be back tomorrow with my weekly measurements and progress report. Have a great day!
