#Weekendcoffeeshare: At least I think it’s the weekend edition


I think it’s Saturday.  It may not be, and if it turns out that I’m wrong and it’s not Saturday, I won’t be surprised at all, because as bad as my ability to tell what day it is has been damaged by my prolonged period of not going to work, this weird thing where now the boy is on vacation too and my wife is having random four-day weekends is just completely screwing with me.

That cup up there is my coffee cup.  There are others like it, but this one is mine.  The crayon is included for scale.  That coffee cup is so large that it’s actually difficult to hold one-handed; it needs a second handle.  It holds an enormous volume of coffee.  Sugar is added to it via multiple scoops of the largest spoon we have.

I have lost track of the amount of coffee I’ve consumed this morning and I still do not feel remotely human.  I think at some point in the last couple of days, maybe more than one of them, Christmas was celebrated in the homes of various relatives, but most of it is a blur.  There is only The Couch for me today, or at least there will be once I decide there has been enough coffee.

So, yeah.  If we were having coffee, I doubt I’d be fully cognizant that you were in the room.  That kind of morning.

It’s 1:00 PM.

  1. Ha ha ha I loved this post! Your dry sense of humor is just the thing for the day after Christmas. I need to get one of those big mugs, it would cut down on trips to the kitchen, and possibly curtail my Christmas cookie eating!


  2. I’m going to need one of those coffee cups.

    Day after Christmas has been very sleepy around here, too. Totally helps that the weather is cloudy and gross.


  3. I ended up spending the night at my daughter’s house. They brought me home at 1 this afternoon and I sat on the couch and fell asleep within a half hour. I stayed there until half an hour ago, 9 pm. I still want to sleep some more. But I’ll wait and stay up a couple of hours then zonk out again. Yup, these high emotional energy days do me in.

    (Me during the entire year). The only thing that has kept me on track is school and its due dates and tests. I don’t necessarily see them as days anymore unfortunately, but the fact that a certain project or test is in three or two days. sigh maybe one day, life won’t be as routine and boring as it is? Maybe I can just lounge on the couch with a cup of coffee like you.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with staying on the couch, bucket of coffee in hand… pretty much how my day has been… except for writing my coffee share – I think I have ADD… took me hours to write it!


  6. I thought the same thing about the Walking Dead coffee mug: zombies — how appropriate.

    I’ve been drinking a lot of coffee lately just because it’s HOT, not for my usual ‘I need coffee in order to pass for human’ reasons. And staying on the couch all day (maybe I’ll make a blanket fort for myself and my cats) seems like a good idea.


  7. I can relate to your struggle to knowing what day of the week it is. We’re both on holidays and the kids are at my parents’ place so we’re drifting, which is what I like in the holidays. Not having to be anywhere but ultimately, reality knocks and tomorrow, it’s time to wake up.
    Glad you had a great Christmas. oUrs was great.
    Hope things go well for you in the New Year!
