A True Addiction

Have you ever wondered if you really needed something and then decided that at any time you could probably get by without it? Well, I have realized that coffee is the one thing that I cannot get by without.

Last Friday I decided to brake down, set my trusted $10 coffee pot aside and order a Keurig. I figured that I had some Christmas money left over and why not. So I dug out my coupons and I ordered away! I anticipated its arrival on Tuesday and sent my old pot to the shop for the guys to use since theirs broke. I figured that at the latest I'd be brewing a wide variety of single cups coffees by Wednesday night. Boy, was I wrong!  I guess you could say I am spoiled with 2-day delivery from Amazon and this I did not order from there.

It is now Saturday evening and I am still without my Keurig.  All of my instant coffee is gone, the pot that my ever-so-wonderful husband brewed at the shop and brought me this morning is gone too and the UPS/ FED EX man didn't come and visit me today.

Sometimes, I wonder what really is important, what is really needed and what makes my day so much better. Coffee is neither of the first two, but without a doubt makes my day so much better! So, kids, hubby and all who cross my path, please know that it is you that is the most important and I am trying my best to get by until Monday when the FED EX/ UPS man hopefully comes to visit!


  1. I'm your first follower and first commenter! I'm so honored Katie. This blog is going to rock. If I was going to a deserted island I would bring my Cuisinart Grind N' Brew coffee maker with a generator to run it. It's my favorite appliance in the house! You next new addiction will be blogging. :)
