Are you a coffee snob? Are you high maintenance? If the answer to either of these questions is yes, you’ve come to the right place.
Today, at Working Mommy Wednesday, we're talking about the "must haves" to get us through the day.
For me, my two "must haves" are coffee and prayer.
I'll talk about prayer another day. Today, let's talk about coffee.
It’s no secret that I love my coffee. Not just any coffee. I like the good stuff. Some of you know that I gave up coffee for Lent last year. And it nearly killed me!
When Doug and I go camping with the kids, we bring our own coffee pot and Starbucks. You guessed it, I’m a high maintenance camper. I realize Starbucks and camping don’t go together for most people, but I like to break stereotypes.
So you can imagine how frazzled I was on our last camping trip when we ran out of our coffee! I went over to the “camp store” to buy a cup, thinking I would just have to suck it up and drink the cheap stuff. I took a sip and thought I was drinking water. I nearly choked. In a complete panic, I headed to town, relieved to find the local Starbucks.
Maybe I sound like a total snob. I'm sorry. I can do without a shower and some basic hygiene every now and then, but please don’t ask me to drink yucky coffee.
If you’re a coffee snob or you just love coffee, please let me know. Everyone who leaves a comment on this post will enter a drawing for a Starbuck’s gift card. Winners will be announced on Friday.
(By the way, I don't know about you, but these four-day weeks require extra coffee. I'm traveling this week, so please forgive me if I don't respond to your comments until tomorrow!)
