SLEEPING IN and the Great Wall of China

Today was my 'sleep in' day.  Hello, Dickidoo.... 'sleep in' means to SLEEP!  Agh! 

I made a discovery.  The bags under my eyes are not bags at all.  My eyes are just the only part of my face that hasn't had the energy sucked out of it.  The cure?  Do I really need to spell it out?  Coffee!  After the 2nd cup my face should start filling back out nicely.  I would be completely back to normal right now, but my caffeine facial was delayed by the weekend construction of The Great Wall of China that runs right through my kitchen.  Okay, its not really The Great Wall of China, its more like The Great Wall of Corelle, Stainless Steel and Tupperware, but it's probably comparable in size.  It has completely blocked access to my kitchen sink, thus delaying my caffeine seeking expedition.  Not good!

I'm supposed to be making breakfast burritos for the kids.  I forgot that I also promised that they could sleep in the tent tonight.  When the kids sleep in the tent, an adult has to be there in the back yard with them.  Dickidoo has work in the morning which means that I'm the camp counselor and there is NO WAY I am spending the night in a tent with the Oompas and their lethal burrito induced butt-burps! So its pancakes for breakfast instead.  Which means I must tear down that wall of china in the kitchen.  Oh joy is me!  NOT! 

Isn't that coffee done yet?  My Bunn-Omatic isn't quite the -Omatic it used to be...  Must have coffee FASTER!  Do you think a person can really get coffee intravaneously?    Gimme a coffee IV.  Slap the drip bag in a little backpack thingie so I can carry it around with me and I'll be set for anything! Hook me up baby!

Ahhhh, the Bunn-Omatic Brew-Omatic is done at last.  Peace is restored once again to LoompaLand.

Allow me to introduce you to a wonderful concept: Chocolate-covered Espresso Beans. That's right, the two principle food groups of Type-A personalities rolled into one nifty, tasty package...

And the buzz is to die for!

Your house sounds like TONS of fun right now, Dorn! I'm jealous! :)  I wish I could come and camp out with the Oompas! They sound like lots of fun!
Hugs,

I, too, survive on coffee. My solution to the "waiting for the coffee to be done," was to buy a coffeemaker with a timer -- now, I wake up to a fresh pot and no longer have to stumble around the kitchen waiting for the coffee to brew.

It's time to move on to the Auto-Caffeinator!!
