I started the new school year in the dark. Thanks to the now infamous Irene I settled into bed early Sunday night with only the light of my headlamp to guide me. Yes, it would have been nice to know the coffee would be ready when I awoke at 6:00 AM on Monday but things don't always work out the way I want. I've learned that. Besides with people suffering from much more than loss of power up and down the east coast I considered myself lucky to be in my own bed without a tree coming through my roof.
I was happy to find my refrigerator humming when I came home yesterday and looked forward to a better start on Tuesday.
I woke up late this morning having set my alarm for 5:45 PM by mistake. The coffee failed as well. I had measured out the water as needed but somehow skipped the important add coffee step.
