Zombie Mom

Hi, my name is Stacy and it has been 3 days since my last cup of coffee.

For some, this may not sound like it is that big of a deal. But for the past couple of years I have grown accustomed to my cup of java a day habit. There is rarely a day I go without it. So, you can imagine, when my coffee pot committed suicide on Monday, I was devastated. What was I going to do?

This could have been a simple solution. I could have just went down the street to Wally World and invested in a $10 coffee pot. But I am picky and I have standards. My last coffee pot was a Hamilton Beach BrewStation. Carafes need not apply. I hate those leaky things. They are such a pain. In fact, I haven't had a normal coffee pot since 2003 when I invested in my first Brewstation. I refused to downgrade.

So I did some research and I looked around. I have been eyeballing those Keurig machines but I will admit, the cost had me against it for awhile now. So when I found something similar, but at a better price, I thought my problem had been solved. It offered the same concept without the huge investment.

So, like anytime I am getting ready to spend a bunch of money, I started doing research. My best bet was to order online because I could get rewards by ordering at Walmart.... dot... com. through Swagbucks. The problem - that also meant that I would have to wait almost a full week by the time it got shipped to my house.

I was pretty sure the wait was going to kill me.

Yet today, just as I was finally ambling up to my bedroom as zombie mom to get dressed (just short of noon!), the doorbell rang. Irritated by the distraction, I went to the door wondering who could be disturbing my lazy day.

It was my Keurig!

Tomorrow should be back to normal. Zombie mom has left the building!

And as for the better deal, I ended up to go with the more expensive product. Why? Simply because you get what you pay for!

  1. YAY for coffee and your new Keurig! Can't wait to read your review! We had one of those at a couple of offices that I worked at and I just didn't like them. Ok, I was spoiled after drinking Kaladi Brothers all the time. Anything less than that is a horrible downgrade. ;)

    Welcome back to the land of the half-dead. :D

    1. Oh - but the nice thing is now you can use your own coffee. You just have to buy the refillable cup. Which let me tell you, is one of the reasons I decided to go with it. Because for the most part, I end up wasting a lot of coffee making a whole pot for just me. And I only like fresh coffee and can't stand reheating it! YUCK! I am picky!

    1. Because my husband has the car and so the closest I could have come to coffee was a 15 minute walk down to McDonald's. :( And then I would have had to explain to Max why they don't serve fries in the morning! LOL :)

  4. I drink only tea...coffee makes me nauseated and crazy. BUT, I can sympathize: my husband CANNOT go a day without coffee. He is addicted, hehe. Glad you got your Keurig sooner rather than later. :)

  9. Stacy - Congrats on your new coffee maker!!!! I'm still instant coffee man, and loving it. Sure beats what the wife makes. If the coffee industry depended on her usage for survival, they'd all starve! Enjoy!
