First of all I just want to say thanks Loree! Someone actually posted a comment!
"Dora" is napping right now but her two brothers are up. So I should probably be playing with them. Naptime is one of my favorite times of day. I have friend with three small children who uses naptime to get all sorts of productive stuff done. Not me, I use it to nap, or read the paper or whatever. The only way I can survive a typical day without a nap is with loads and loads of caffeine. Truthfully, even with a nap I find it hard to make it through without caffeine!
Saturday night, I decided I needed to give up caffeine. Every couple of months I decide this. If I can go a week that is impressive. The truth is that since making my decision Saturday I have consumed one slice of chocolate chip zucchini bread (which I rationalized must be healthy since it contains vegetables), one twenty ounce bottle of pepsi, and one glass of iced tea. I was doing pretty well today, but when I wanted to write something I said to myself "I can't think I better go make myself a cup of tea!"
I am sure you are all amazed by my total lack of will power. I don't bother to make New Years Resolutions since I know they will never last. Perhaps the reason I don't succeed is that I believe that I can't. Or maybe giving up caffeine is just too difficult. (Maybe if I didn't have to give up chocolate and cola both).
It seems that most of the adult world is addicted to caffeine in one form or another. Am I the only one waging this battle? Should I just give up? Maybe if I cutback a little at a time.
Well, I'll let you think about that while I go and drink my tea.
