Oasis


In the midst of our suburban Richmond utopia, we have an oasis known as Wawa. We live less than 2 miles from the closest one... and love it for its cheap gas, clean and well-lit convenience store, and COFFEE.

My dh would hate to admit it, but he has become hooked on coffee. At one time, he referred to the brew as dirty water, but this morning, he said to me, "It's your turn." Thinking that he was referring to getting our younger dd, who, at this point, had been asking interchangeably for mommy and daddy for about 5 minutes from her crib, he surprised me. "It's your turn to go to Wawa for coffee."

Keep in mind that we now also have a brand new Target with a Starbucks inside literally across the street from Wawa, but my dh chooses Wawa! Well, I happily obliged his request that I make the coffee run (10 minutes of solitude is priceless some days!) and left with 2 coffees and 3 doughnuts for less than the cost of 1 Starbucks fancy coffee! That is indeed a bargain!

My kids were in heaven eating their bakery treats! And I was (finally) awake in a state of caffinated bliss! What a great way to spend a Sunday morning!
