Caffeine is the devil’s drug, THE DEVIL’S Drug! I’m on day #2 of my ban on caffeine, and if this day doesn’t hurry up and get over with, I may die.
Whenever my life settles down, I feel the need to get a handle on the things that have been allowed to get a little bit out of control in the day to day chaos. In this case, my caffeine intake. Back in May of this year, I buckled down and substantially reduced my caffeine. Up until about August, I did well. When the new school year started, I kept it together until things got crazy. I found myself stopping at Starbucks in the middle of the day just to make it through the rest of the day. More recently, after starting the day with something caffeinated to make the pain of early mornings go away I didn’t stop. In doing so, water was being replaced with coffee or soda. I’d return home at the end of the day and realize I hadn’t had any water since I had left the house 12 hours earlier.
With a fairly low key week coming up, I decided (again) to pull it together and stop this madness. I’ve had so much water this weekend, I’m floating. My head feels like it’s going to explode, and I’m a little bit cranky. I’m hoping day 3 will be less difficult. Tomorrow there will be kids, so it had better be less difficult or there will be trouble.
