I whip into my friendly neighborhood Carl's Jr. to get Paige some French Toast and Hash Brown Nuggets for Breakfast.
As I pull up to the window the nice cashier waves at me and says "We were all talking about you last week. We wondered if everything was OK".
Umm, yes, why?
Well, she reports, you usually come by 2 or 3 times a week and get your morning caffeine (diet coke) and buy your little one breakfast. We were wondering why you stopped coming by.
Summer vacation is what happened. I was happily sleeping in my bed early in the morning instead of yelling at children to move it along and get in the car for school.
I admit to feeling very touched that I had aparantly formed such a close relationship with the folks in the drive through.
However, I begun to wonder how much money I could save by going cold turkey and stopping my morning drive thru addiction.
Then I decided not to worry about it.
After all what kind of friend would I be if I stopped visiting and stopping by to chat about the weather and new menu items a few times a week.
My mama always told me that good friends are like gold and you can never have to many of them.
I whole heartedly agree.
