When the coffee is disappointing...

The coffee I am drinking right now is not so very good, because it is the cheap kind and it sure does make the difference in taste and flavor. I have the better Douwe Egberts coffee that I got on sale on the shelf in the kitchen, but I have to finish this undrinkable coffee first. It is such a major disappointment to make a pot of it and it seems that it does not wake me up properly either. I sit here in a stupor for the longest time and wait for it to do its work. I think I am never going to buy it again, no matter how affordable it is, and always buy the Douwe Egberts coffee. But didn't I make this claim before?
I think I have recuperated from my amazing Saturday afternoon and have almost both my feet back on the ground, although one of them may be there only by tiptoe. I do have to be a sensible woman again now that the week is starting with its usual responsibilities. I can't be on cloud nine for the rest of it.
One thing I will do this week, is buy a plant for my computer table and I will get one that can take low light and a watering once a week. I will go to the flower shop that's close to me and that has a good selection of plants at a reasonable price. I have one in mind, but it is possible that I will end up with something totally different depending on the recommendation I get there. The most important thing is, that I don't let myself get intimidated by the responsibility of taking care of it and keep it alive.  
I haven't even glanced at my agenda yet to see what I am supposed to do this week beside the usual appointments and I am not yet quite in the mood to do this. I have the rest of the morning to do so. I don't think that the week is going to be all that busy, even though I would like for it to be. I don't want it to be just a dull roar and I will have to provide my own excitement. That is within a certain amount of reason, of course.
I forgot to take my fibromyalgia medicines last night, but I am not in too bad a shape. I feel a bit stiff and sore, but it is nothing that I can't live with. I get the idea that some people let their fibromyalgia take over their whole lives and make it their lifestyle and major hobby as if nothing else counts anymore. I am not planning on doing that. It will play some role in my life, but it will not define who I am, just like my bipolarity does not.

Been there and done that and learned never ever buy cheap awful coffee.

Life is too short. If you throw it out and drink the good stuff now you will never buy cheap again. :)

There's no turning back once you taste good coffee...

I'm afraid that I'm not a coffee connoisseur and tend to only have instant on the shelf! So you won't be coming to me for coffee, will you!
I've just caught up on you latest posts.
You are full of surprises. I turn my back for one moment and you do all sorts of things!
You and I have similar hair styles!
It is cooler here in the evenings and mornings. I just wrap up.
