Coincidence? I Think Not...


This morning Matthew made a pot of coffee. Approximately half-way through the brewing process I hear a shout, "Katie, there's something wrong with the coffee pot." I chose to ignore this statement as I was not prepared to acknowledge such a travesty.


After I summoned the courage to enter the kitchen - hours later. I saw the carafe sitting in the sink and bravely examined the damage. The bottom of the glass carafe was, dare I say it, broken. Gasp, nooooooooo!


Over the past decade or so we have shared our kitchen counter with numerous coffee pots. Some lasting years, like the one that just died this morning, and some lasting weeks. I am serious. We had one that lasted for only a few weeks.


Now normally when I receive junk mail I toss immediately. For some reason when Matthew brought in the mail yesterday I left the junk mail on the counter. Weird? Perhaps no. You see one of the junk fliers was for a Gevalia coffee pot/Coffee of the Month type of deal. I was shocked!


How did they know?


Amazing.

At this point I'm leaving the information in it's envelope. Tomorrow, however, when I am in desperate need of coffee I plan on not only reading about the extremely wonderful offer Gevalia is choosing to share with me, but also force my dear husband to understand how wonderful the deal actually is. Can you imagine how satisfying it will be to know we can spend a mere $210 on a pot of freshly brewed coffee? I know the idea will sound much better at 4:45 in the morning. I just know it.

I always sign up for those deals to get the "free" coffee pot from Gevalia, and then quickly withdraw from the membership when the free coffee expires after the first month. It is a great way to get a free coffee pot....over.....and over again!

Yer a trip, but that really stinks that you are potless. This is my coffee pot and I LOVE it. I don't' even drink coffee much, but every time I drag it out, I feel like I'm all fancy & modern with the stainless and the programmable thingy that you can set to have your coffee all ready int eh morning (even though I never use that). You'll love your new friend.

okay folks I admit the truth here and now in front of you all. I broke the coffee pot. After contempleting this I believe when filling the glass pot, I may...no in fact it's coming back to me....I DID bump it a bit hard on a frying pan handle.....

Good news though KT, I'll be scoping out the Sam's Club today for a new Attitude Adjusting, Wake-Up juice maker....

lol, you sure had me grinning at your wit in this entry! lol

I like the idea of a free coffee pot. Only my hubby drinks coffee, but it is pretty serious business.

As I am sure you know!~

God bless-

Cara convinced me to sign up for the Gevalia offer. I love my coffee pot. I just can't remember how to make coffee anymore, now that I'm no longer pregnant.
