Have you ever thought about making a pot of coffee?

Specifically, the steps involved?

  • Get off bed
  • Walk to coffee maker
  • Take carafe and walk to sink
  • Stand at sink while carafe fills
  • Carry carafe back to coffee pot (more walking)
  • Transfer water to tank, get filter, etc. (more standing)
  • Walk back to bed while coffee brews
  • Get back off bed
  • Walk to fridge to get creamer
  • Walk to coffee maker
  • Pour coffee and add creamer (standing)
  • Walk back to bed

Since anything that involves standing, walking, or carrying can involve a great deal of pain, I sometimes can spend hours deciding whether it is worth the effort pain to make coffee.

Today I’ve been pondering it for a little over three hours.  Waking up and teetering off to the bathroom usually gives me a good read on my pain level.  This morning was in the “not good” category.

But I really want a cup of coffee…

 

Note:  Two hours after posting this, I finally got my coffee.
