Music Monday: Goodbye To You

Today I had to say goodbye to a dear friend. I knew this day was coming, so on Saturday I spent some extra quality time with my dear friend. I thought maybe the extra attention would help extend its life. I was wrong.

This morning at about 9:18 a.m., my Hamilton Beach BrewStation took its last breath.

A moment of silence please....


Alright, I have collected myself. 

I was the first one on the scene, and there was coffee everywhere. It was a site. I will probably be having nightmares for months. I tried to resuscitate it, but my attempts didn't work. The on/off switch had obviously been shorted out from the coffee that had leaked out. I fear that the extra attention to it on Saturday, might have actually done more harm than good. Cleaning it out might have actually dislodged what was holding everything together.

So today, it brewed it's last cup of coffee for me. It will be hard to replace, but I know that my coffee pot would truly love to move on.

The Hamilton Beach BrewStation was survived by: The Teapot, The Toaster, The Crock Pot, The George Foreman Grill, The Quesadilla Maker, and the Blender. Funeral services will be held later this week.

So, without further ado... for Music Monday I dedicate this song to my Hamilton Beach BrewStation.

Michelle Branch - Goodbye to You


  1. My condolences...I know my husband (the coffee drinker) would share your grief should his coffee maker go to that big brew station in the suggestion: Go on Ebay and see if you can score yourself a new one (that's how my brother got some fancy schmancy coffee maker and he loves it)

  2. Hahahahahahaha oh my GOODNESS Stacy!! I loved this. If my Tassimo kicked the bucket I would be lost. Coffee is my new best friend. My condolences.

  3. I can understand the pain of a machine that gives you a boost at the beginning of the day...Peace be with your coffee machine while you get another one soon to get the kick in your mornings.

    Myself a tea person so, I kinda get jittery when my tea leaves and milk are missing from the

  4. AW...I'll be so sad when my teapot is broken. They really are a big part of life huh? :P

  5. Oh so sorry for your loss and seriously you did your coffee pot justice with this eulogy!! :)

  6. So sorry for your loss. Awesome ode to the coffeemaker. May it rest in peace. LOL

  7. Is it rude to laugh out loud when a coffee pot's just been laid to rest? Probably not very appropriate...sorry! Condolences to Mr. Coffee pot! ;)

  8. When my coffee grinder (my first ever coffee grinder!) died, I cried. For hours. And not just because there were no ground beans in the house and I was thus caffeine-deprived for hours... :)
