Day 1 of no more McDonald’s coffee: I spent the entire morning from the moment I woke up until I was 10 minutes before leaving the house to decide that I want some form of financial independence more than I want a McDonald’s coffee. I took my home made coffee to work, drank it, and enjoyed it. I came home for lunch, made 4 more cups, took it to work, and enjoyed it again.
Day 2: I was annoyed this morning that I didn’t make the coffee so it was ready to go. Must change for tomorrow.
Afternoon of day 2: It was hot in here and all I wanted was that sweet, sweet, venti chai tea frappuccino. But I made coffee instead!
Morning of day 3: I can’t find my one and only travel mug. I made a big mistake when I bought it, not knowing how much it cost, but now I love it, and it keeps my coffee hot during the hour that it takes me to drink it all.
Afternoon of day 3: Second McDonald’s coffee of the day. I’m very disappointed, but hey, I found my mug! That damn thing rolled under my front seat. Why didn’t I think to check there? I blame the lack of coffee.
Afternoon of day 4: The McDonald’s taste is still fresh in my memory, so the rest of the day was a waste of money, but it was a delicious waste.
Morning of day 5: Someone at work did something REALLY stupid, so I had to go in at 0500. This means I had to set my alarm for 0330. I was a bleary eyed fool for the rest of the day. 2 McDonald’s trips are under my belt…again.
So, clearly there wasn’t a whole lot of success. I’m going to try finding another mug that is way cheaper, so I can hopefully just take my coffee with me every morning and afternoon next week. It’s a long weekend here in Canada, so I won’t be back to work until Tuesday. I will NOT be buying anything from a restaurant all weekend, and all coffee will be made at home!!!!
