Anyone Else Do This?

This morning I made myself a cup of coffee. Then I got busy with making breakfast for the crew, then a bottle for the baby, then I checked my email, you get the idea...

An hour later I start to wash the breakfast dishes in the sink and I find a beautiful cup of coffee I have only sipped twice. I take a big gulp, of course by now it is practically iced coffee (those who have visited know how cold I keep the house), so I decide to nuke it. No sense letting a pefectly good cup of coffee go to waste. Into the microwave it goes. While it is warming I have the girls get out their school books, I change another round of diapers, and I run to put in the ponytail I never got to this morning since I was in a hurry to get breakfast started.

I come downstairs and start school. I keep hearing the microwave beep every few minutes, but by now we are so engrossed in fractions and number sentences I don't give it a second thought. I'll get to it after Math.

I finally open that microwave. Mostly I just was getting annoyed with the beeping. There sits my perfectly good cup of coffee-- of course it's cold again. Know what I did? The logical thing of course, I shut the door and turned it on for another two minutes. Then I went to put the baby down for a nap.

I came downstairs to hear the *!#? microwave beeping again, I opened it to find that same cup of coffee-- COLD.
I give up.

Sounds like you could have used that coffee! I hate mornings like this!

Sound like you don't need that coffee! lol. If you didn't have a splitting headache from withdrawals after all that, I think you're good without it. :-)

I don't think I have a morning where I DON'T do that! In fact, you can see the rings around my cup for every time I've reheated it! Usually about 3 or 4 rings!

Yep, been there doing that as I type. Thanks for the reminder. I have a cup in the microwave right now that has already been reheated twice!
We are Moms. It's what we do.

I do the same thing and I live alone. I think it is aan age thing. I have also learned to drink ice tea over hot that way I can leave it out.
