Husband and I have worked ourselves into a pretty good morning routine. Husband hits snooze just once — oh, the willpower! — and he then gets up to make the coffee, while I sprawl across the warm bed until he tells me it's ready. Then, at about three-minute intervals, he reminds me that the coffee's ready. This goes on for about 15 minutes. Sometimes he grabs the duvet and pulls of off the bed. But, eventually, I get up, enjoy my coffee, and get ready for the work day.
Today, that all changed.
Husband: "Umm, wife?"
Husband: "Do we have anymore coffee?"
Husband: "You sounds like a dying cat."
Me: "No coffee?"
Husband: "No coffee."
Me: "Can I call in sick?"
Husband: "No ... but you can get Starbucks."
This was enough to get me out of bed in record time. Today I got to break our budget-friendly, no-buying-coffee rule and pick up a delicious hot dark roast on my way to the office.
I know I might sound crazy or addicted, but I just really like starting my day off with coffee. Really really. I can see my sister-in-law, A, nodding her head in agreement. She understands me.
How do you like to start your day?
