Well, it has happened. I have found the one that makes my soul sing. His name is compact Keurig with a 36 ounce water reservoir, options for brewing 6,8 or 10 ounce cups of coffee and it is the most beautiful shade of light teal.
I have hemmed and hawed for years about getting one because they were pricey but then, I put it on my Christmas list and Santa brought it! I also got about 6 weeks worth of K-cups to go with it. Luckily, I also received a lovely jar as a Christmas present that matches and is the perfect container for storing K-cups.
I know that there are people everywhere who set up their coffee maker before they go to bed each night and wake up to fresh coffee. I am not together enough for that. I also never understood those people who woke up, had coffee and sat quietly for a while and then started their day. I am one of them now. Like, for example, yesterday morning, I woke up, made a big cup of coffee, mixed in some chocolate milk ( I was out of creamer/white milk) and sat in my cozy chair, listened to a podcast and did Sudoku on my phone while coffeeing. It was amazing. I am one of those people now. Also I got more done yesterday than I had in ages. I finally tackled half of my nemesis, the pantry, where if you follow me on Facebook, you will see I had quite the collection of outdated “non-perishables”. This morning, I could easily see where my cream of mushroom soup was located as I put dinner in the crock-pot.
I don’t want to oversell this, but I think the Keurig is finally going to allow me to realize my potential and become the person I was always meant to be. Until about 1 pm. Then I will crash and require a nap or more coffee.
