My coffeemaker is not working. It keeps telling me to add water when there is already water added. It did this twice recently, but then started working after I kept hitting "on" a few times. I am afraid this might be the end of it, since hitting "on" for an hour produced nothing but beep beep beep. Beep beep beep. Beep beep beep. I tried drinking a cup of tea, but it just wasn't the same and I didn't finish it. So now I am cranky, have 13 draft posts to continue working on writing, other posts that are started in my head but not in my list of drafts, a house to clean, some other writing projects to do that have deadlines fast approaching, it's a rainy morning (which I usually enjoy but this morning not so much, probably due to lack of caffeine), I'm trying not to yell at my kids because it is not their fault the coffeemaker isn't working, and all I want to do is cry and go back to bed. Which I can't do.
So what can I do instead? I can take a deep breath, realize that things do not always go according to plan, and just go with it. That really is all I can do, since I can't change any of these things that have already happened this morning.
Oh, and also, since rainy days make me think of Haiti, and the Haiti Mission Project just posted this as I was writing, I want to encourage you all to follow the Haiti Mission Project on Facebook and contribute to the funding of Aqua Tabs that they are sending there.
