We had an emergency this morning.
Of course, we try to avoid them, but sometimes they happen.
The good news is that nobody was hurt.
I threw on my boots, grabbed a bra and put it on as I ran down the stairs.
I was in the car by 8:03.
Within 15 minutes I was home.
I burst in the door and raised my hand up in the air…I had what we needed to solve the crisis.
1/2 & 1/2
It was a “creamer emergency”.
Both Ryan and I take our coffee “with cream”.
We actually use 1/2 & 1/2, but we both cringe at the thought of putting milk in our coffee.
There was enough for each of us to have a first cup, but beyond that we were in coffee crisis mode.
Ryan had to be on a call at 8:30, the dogs still needed to be fed, and both of the kids were still eating their breakfast.
I elected myself to run out and save the day.
Thank goodness Trader Joe’s opened at 8.
Thank goodness it is only a 3 minute drive from our house.
Thank goodness I know the store like the back of my hand and was also able to throw a couple of other necessities into my basket.
Seriously, I was in and out in less than 9 minutes…
1/2 & 1/2.
2 bunches of bananas.
2 boxes of breakfast bars.
2 packages of frozen Mac & Cheese.
2 packages of pumpkin bread mix.
1 gallon of milk.
1 bag of white cheddar corn puffs.
10 chocolate chip z-bars.
I pulled into the driveway at 8:18.
Ryan got on his call.
I poured another cup of coffee…with cream.
How do you take your coffee?
home is…funny little quirks.

You’re so funny! I like coffee with milk, and my hubby likes it black. No crisises here, although no milk for my son’s cereal would send me in a rush too. 😉
Having witnessed such emergencies in your home, I can attest that urgency is the name of the game… I would suggest an extra half-and-half for the freezer!!!!! Of course, that makes much less entertaining a story… we take ours without milk, cream or other dairy products, so have a much less interesting life… Why are there no pictures of you preparing to leave the house???? just kidding…
I feel your pain. Little heavy on the carbs, sister . . .
I was scared one of the kids had had an emergency! Thank goodness it was only 1/2 and 1/2. But oh so necessary!!! Love ,Mom
