Monday morning without coffee.......not good

Of course, if your husband used up the last of the coffee beans on Sunday, he would tell you, right? Wrong. At least if I knew there were no more beans, I would have saved the burnt coffee still in the pot from yesterday and just reheated it - but the finding of no coffee beans happened AFTER the pot was washed.

So, on to tea. Not my favorite thing in the world - certainly doesn't give me the jolt that coffee does - but better than nothing.

On top of the coffee discovery, I was cleaning out my daughter's pants this morning to go into the laundry and what do I discover? No, nothing sinister - just the lunch check I gave her last week. No wonder the school has been leaving messages on my machine about my negative account. Only thing is I figured the check had already cleared and when I was doing my 'mental' balancing of the checkbook - didn't figure that in. No actual balancing ever happens - just my mental balancing - very dangerous - especially as my early alzheimer's kick in every now and then.

So, in light of my slow morning and the continued beautiful weather we are having, I think today is going to be a 'teacher in-service' at our school today. The kids and I are going to take off to the State Park. We'll call it our Mental Health Day - yeah, that sounds good.

Hope you all had a full cup of steaming coffee this morning and that you take some Mental Health time for yourself.

Until next time.
