It Figures + Urban Sketch

I've slowly been adding a few urban sketches to my journal and so far I really enjoy drawing them.  If you want to know more about what it is then you can check it out by doing a simple google search. :)  I was able to learn by doing this drawing that a white gel pen doesn't always make the best highlighter option.  I'll probably try gouache (spelling?) next time.

On July 16th, my morning started early.  I had a lot to do and needed to be out of the house with kids in tow by 8.  Being the morning hater that I am, I woke up especially early (6:15am) and do what most adults do to get themselves perky.  I made a bee line for the beloved coffee pot and with one eye barely open, I moved through the motions of prepping the machine.  When I tried to pour the coffee into the filter, nothing came out of my empty canister. 

{{Palm to forehead}}

Slight panic ensued and I told Bubba (who was already dressed and ready for the day) to quickly run to the store, but all he said is, "No such luck, toots.  Gotta be at school early to study."

Desperation is a funny thing and an apparent adrenaline booster.  I wasted zero time throwing on my shoes, clothes, and brushing my teeth to drive to the our local grocery store.  Unfortunately for me, the doors to the store wouldn't open and I was referred to a sign that says "comeback, we're closed".  

Awe, hell no.

At this point I wasn't opposed to slurping spilled coffee off the floor, so I paced outside for fifteen minutes until they opened at 7.  Meh.

I knew my luck was changing though;  There was a bright red sale sticker below my favorite brand of coffee, Dunkin' Donuts for 6.99! 

After rushing through checkout and back home, I was feeling quite happy and proud of myself that all had worked out...THAT IS until I noticed the bright green label on the bag of coffee that says DECAF

NOOOOOOOOooooooo!  The horror!   Why do they even make decaf!!?  Doesn't it defeat the purpose behind having coffee? 

Needless to say, I didn't have any coffee that morning.  And I wasted seven dollars.

It figures.

*And because this is a blog and people judge I figure I should note that my teenage son babysat the sleeping babes while I went to the store.
