Day 2: Back on Caffeine


Caffeination - and quitting a New Years ResolutionYes I gave in. Tuesday night I got 1.5 hours of sleep. I couldn’t function with out caffeine yesterday. Last night I was in the bed for 10 hours. I received about 8 hours (which is a huge improvement from the 4-5 I’ve been getting on average). Between late nights, early mornings for work and an early Spring in Michigan, I have permanent bags under my eyes. What’s that Bare Naked Ladies song? “Who needs sleep? You’re never gonna get it. Who needs Sleep? Tell me what that’s for.”

I woke up every hour on the 1/2 hour to blow my nose and cough last night. So this AM, I took the last cup in the pot. In my defense (other than the reasons listed above), it’s 1/2 caf. And at 8:30am in the morning – a very late start to the day for me. I needed something to clear the cobwebs and go. Do any of these resonate with you?

So much for that New Year’s Resolution. Anyone else kill there’s and how long did it take?

It’s a green tea party and chili kinda day


Today’s weather is changing from rain to sleet and will hit snow in like 2 hours. Still no caffeine so a nice green tea is in order. Is there such a thing as a Green Tea Party?: People that like to keep their earnings but want to leave a better planet for their kids? Would they make venison and tofu chili?

Day 3 Uncaffeinated.


Chai Latte – Homemade chai latte that is. That’s how I’m making it through this quitting caffeine kick I’m on. Monday was rough. Tuesday was slightly better. Today – not so bad. I slept great last night. Tomorrow, I’m going to ween off booze. “WHAT?!” you’re saying? Yes. It’s time. I need to lose a few lbs and this is all a good start. These are not New Years Resolutions. I’ve been weening off coffee/pop for a couple weeks now. Just thought a date would be a good start. I’m not saying that I’m quitting for good. Just for now.
