Confessions of A Coffee Addict 2
Welcome to the second meeting of Coffee Addict’s Anonymous (CAA)!
As I mentioned at the last meeting it seems like my coffee habit has only gotten worse as I get more and more tired and find more and more times of the day when I need some coffee. This week I have to confess for all to hear my troubles with drinking coffee during my commute in the morning.
Those of you know a little bit about me know that I am a full time working mom. What you might not know is that usually 3-4 days a week I spend close to two hours in the car dropping off my toddler and going to work. Needless to say my husband and I didn’t really think the commute through when chosing a house and neighborhood.
This commute is a prime time for my coffee use. Raise your hand if you usually have a mug in the car/bus/subway during your morning commute. For me this has become quite the necessity. During the crazy marathon that ensues with trying to get out the door in the morning I don’t always have the time to enjoy my first cup of the day. So by the time I’m in the car my brain is feeling supper foggy. I frequently fill the urge to have another sip especially when my commute includes a tantrum. Of course I also enjoy a cup when I’m by myself on the way to work and jamming out to some music.
Let’s be real when my little one isn’t in the car with me in the morning I can be found rocking out to the catchy beat of Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” or Flo Rida “My House”. I am 100% not a morning person so by the time I get in the car I need some serious waking up. So sipping on some delicious coffee and singing (ok maybe yelling) along to the latest Pop music is just what I need to get my brain turned back on and my energy level up.
Raise your hand if you can be found doing the same? When do you have your first cup of the day? Do you listen to music to get yourself going in the morning? What’s your favorite kind of coffee?
Until next time…..My name is Sarah and I am a coffee addict.
See you at the next meeting!
