Crazy About Coffee

Well I had my rants about my can opener... and my issues with mops... now I want to tell you about something in my kitchen that I absolutely love.... my Bunn Coffee Maker. I would absolutely cry if my Bunn stopped working! Really... I would... like my 3 year old when she doesn't get her way...

I became a coffee addict 19 years ago when I had three babies within a years time... that's right... 3 in one year. My daughter was born Sept 26, 1988 and my identical twin sons were born Sept 7, 1989.... so it was much like having triplets as they were growing up. My favorite part of the year was that few days between their birthdays when they were all the same age... people would give me strange looks when they asked their ages and they were all the same age.... but not triplets. Of course I had to give the explanation of how this came about. I just love to freak people out a bit... heehee...

Anyways... back to the coffee....
Of course with these three babies to take care of I was up all hours of the day and night.... just napping really between feedings, changes etc.... even after they were all sleeping through the night I was up late getting things done while they were sleeping that I couldn't do while they were awake... you Moms know what I'm talking about! So I drank coffee day and night to keep going..... my pot was brewing 24/7. Then after the kids got older I slacked off a bit on my coffee drinking but still drank 2-3 pots a day... and that is currently my rate of consumption. Although I *have* begun to drink half caf now after I get that first pot of the day to wake me up good.

A few years ago my wonderful hubby decided that since I drink so much coffee and hated waiting for my coffee maker to do it's thing.... that I needed a Bunn. Now this was an extravagance to me... paying $100 for a coffee maker.... not my style. But he insisted.... and he bought me a Bunn for Valentine's Day that year. Thank you! Thank You! Thank You!... my dear sweet hubby! I love my Bunn.... and I would miss it so if it broke. Please don't anyone tell it so though.... because you know what would happen were it to find out... it would surely break.

Now a coffee lover like myself can't just drink coffee from an ordinary coffee cup... right??? I have my special large sized cups that I love almost as much as I love my Bunn. A regular sized coffee cup is just too small and requires filling way too often. So I always use my tall coffee cups to sip.... er... guzzle my coffee from.

So now I'm happy to get up in the mornings and only have to wait 2 minutes for nice fresh hot pot of coffee to brew so I can get my fix and hold my eyes open without assistance from toothpicks or other gadgets. When we visit friends who offer to make coffee.... I'm always fidgeting and thinking "when is that coffee gonna be done".... "these people need a Bunn"... "is this the largest cup you have" and other rude thoughts that I would never say out loud... well... maybe I would... you never know... and if I don't say it my Sagittarius hubby probably would.

So coffee lovers of the world... go out and get yourself a Bunn... and some large coffee cups! You'll be so happy that you did.

hey there.. just replying to your question.

It really depends on the offer as to how long it would take. If you feel like it, you can feel free to remove it from pendings and try it again or try other offers.

If it's removed from pendings, it can still credit. I've had that happen to me a few times before..

Also some offers do need a second or third try before it goes tru. It sucks.. but I don't make the rules :/ lol.

Good luck! ;)
