Shoulda Stood in Bed

For no good reason, I was having a really hard time convincing myself to get out of bed to go teach this morning, but at 9:50 a.m. I finally rolled out of bed, brushed my hair, made myself coffee, took my meds, and was sitting in my office with my Zoom window open at 10 a.m. for class, having actually remembered to set up breakout rooms in advance of class for a change, and feeling pretty proud of myself…

…and then somehow I made an abrupt, clumsy motion and managed to knock my full coffee mug off the desk, onto the printer, then the end table, then the floor, spilling coffee EVERYWHERE.

Shoulda stood in bed.

(At least the plan was to have the students in breakout rooms for the first 10 minutes of class, so I gave them their assignments, sent them off, and then got a towel and cleaned up the mess. Yay.)
