Finding my Groove

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.

Sometimes it takes a little time to get back into the swing of things doesn't it?


  1. So true! Best of luck getting back on track! Glad you are safe too!

  2. I've wondered and wondered about many of the slicers in the east, & am glad you are okay & the power is back. It is amazing how a little thing can throw us, but we handle those big things. I love your title. We all need to find it this time of year!

  3. Your writing flows so beautifully. Great hook and love the last line also. I could hear your voice in your writing. And I'm glad you have your electricity back. :)

  4. Your hair looked awesome, though!
