Crowded Days Ahead

Chaos is seeing her shrink, today. We're all going to a funeral, tomorrow. I have no idea what Wednesday holds, but it's bound to include looking for more Beta-readers for Beauties, and possibly working on Chaos' very first book. I should have the time by then.

I need to figure out a way to make an iced coffee that I can tolerate, because there's no way I can drive as much as I'm driving, this week, without caffeine. One that will (a) last, (b) not go off during the day, and (c) be keto-friendly. Because sugar is bad.

We do have xylitol, but as far as I'm aware, there's no diet iced coffee on the markets. Shy of ordering a double espresso soy latte to go at the shrink's coffee shop, I really don't know what to do.

Meanwhile, I have a family to chase and I really don't know how I'm going to get today's Instant done or when.

This entire week is going to be sideways.

I'm pondering sending off KFZ to my last e-submissions A2B without the "X meets Y" because I'm blowed if I can think of two things that encapsulate KFZ accurately. I'll just leave the whole thing without that aspect.

And I solved the coffee problem. I made twice the usual amount of coffee (and doubled the typical amount of xylitol) and used plain old almond milk to top it all off. And my two-mug teapot to mix the coffee in. It's currently in two recycled Powerade Zero bottles so I can drink on the fly.

And I shall probably have to stop in at the BP on the way there, so I can get myself some more Powerade Zero just in case I need me some electrolytes.

And now I simply must prepare my laptop for travel.
