But since drinking sodas was such a BIG DEAL, when I moved out and got married at 18,
I could drink soda any day I wanted. Long as I could afford it!
These were my caffeine of choice.
Now my parents on the other hand have always been coffee and hot tea people. Their caffeine had to be hot.
Never happen, I said!
So, anywho, about 4 years ago my husband and I started wanting coffee during the winter. Quickly that became a spring, summer, winter, fall requirement!
Is that snickering I hear out there in Bloggyland?
We have gone through 3 coffee pots in that time. And the third one, was on its last legs, when I finally ordered it's replacement. Poor thing was a little $12 coffee pot, that we ran night and day (pot in the morning pot after dinner) for over one year.
But I wanted this certain kind of coffee pot. Walmart had it in the store for a while.
Now you can only get it from them on line. Since they have this particular pot for the best price I found. I ordered from them on-line, for the in-store pick-up thing they have.
The only problem with that is, that I thought I would order, then happily trot down to Walmart in about 3 days and bring my pretty new pot home.
2 weeks they say! ???????
Don't they know this is the instant society?
The age of drive through funeral parlors and do-it yourself divorces?
And 2 weeks for a coffee pot? Yikes!
Seriously, though, all kidding aside, I wasn't worried about it.
Because, I'm NOT addicted to coffee. No. Not at all.
I can take it or leave it!
Yeah! That's what I thought anyway!
I had not taken into account how I have come to rely on a hot cup of coffee, strong enough to stand up and walk, piping hot fresh, with a little Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and a little sprinkle of cinnamon!
I hear you all out there! I know you're laughing! :)
This has replaced my sweet tooth craving. Much less calories than anything else I use to get into! Trust me!
So, hopefully I will not gain back the 7lbs I have lost since the beginning of the year, BEFORE my beautiful, shiny RED Mr Coffee gets here!
Ya'll need to pray for me! :)
If you should hear of a woman in jeans too tight, storming Wal-mart with a water pistol, you may want to consider me on hiatus for a bit!
Kidding,Ya'll! I'll be good, promise!
