We made a quick trip up to the farm this weekend (and I'll post about that later). Since it was a super quick trip, we decided to stay at the Mother-In-Law's house.
We did not work particularly late Saturday night, but we did get up early Sunday morning so we could get a bunch done before coming back home. Neither the Mother-In-Law nor her husband drinks coffee. They do not even own a coffee pot! The Horror!
I should mention there was an offer of some instant coffee, but I just knew that was NOT going to work; nor was the General Foods International Coffee. I needed REAL coffee...and badly!
THIS is a problem!
I should also point out that the Mother-In-Law lives in a tiny country town that does not have a grocery store or gas station...no "Quickie Mart" to run to for a cup of Joe!
I managed to start my day with a Diet Coke, hoping it would stave off the potential bad mood I knew I'd be in without my coffee (not to mention the headache!). Once we ate breakfast and went to the farm, I left The Husband and The Boy and took off in search of my fix. I found it about 20 miles down the highway at the next town...a town that boasts not one, but two convenience stores, a drug store, and at least one grocery! I grabbed an extra large coffee to go and all was right with the world!
