When I went back to the states for my sister’s wedding a rather unfortunate thing happened! I formed a very bad habit…
Don’t laugh, I know it’s awful but now I can’t stop craving it! I can remember secretly thinking that my sisters were insane for even drinking the stuff! What a waste of money and calories! And then they forced one on me and then I let them buy me another and then I drank one almost everyday since I knew that I was on vacation and you always do things on vacation that you don’t do at home… I just figured that the cravings would fade… When we flew home I actually went online to check and see if the New Jersey airport (where our layover was) had a Starbucks and it did!!!
We landed almost 45 minutes late and they actually had to hold the plane as we literally ran the whole length of the airport to make the trip on time… I knew that I had a serious problem when all I could think of as I ran pell nell through the airport was that I wouldn’t get my last cup of Starbucks coffee… Heck I didn’t even give thought to my burning lungs or my bladder that was about to burst or my shoulders that hurt so bad I was almost in tears… I could only stick out my bottom lip and feel cheated!
I would kill for a venti White Chocolate Mocha iced coffee right now! Do you know what they don’t have here in the area of Germany that I live?
For over a month now I have struggled with my need for this lovely little treat and then lo and behold I found a Starbucks! It’s only two hours away! And you know what?
I want it bad enough that I would drive that far for one…
Ah but alas it was not meant to be… For the very week I find out that a Starbucks can be had is the week that I find out all my dreams have been answered and coffee is off the menu… Ah the irony.
So to keep my mind off this desperate craving that I can do nothing about (because let’s face it… I’m not going to waste 30 dollars worth of gas to buy a 5 dollar cup of coffee that isn’t good for me anyway.) I am turning back to crochet… I just counted and I have seven, count them, SEVEN baby blankets that have to be made before I can even start on blankets for me… and scarves, and hats, and every other good thing! So I’m crocheting my fingers off to get done in time! Here’s hoping that it makes the time go quickly!
Well I’m coming around to visit everyone I haven’t even had a chance to read for the last few days and I’m missing you guys.
