Even I am laughing at this ridiculous undertaking

November 17, 2008

caffeineA week from tomorrow night I am jumping in a car and driving (10-13 hours) straight to my Mommy’s house for Thanksgiving.  In preparation for an all night drive after a whole day at work I decided that I am giving up all stimulants entirely (caffeine and sugar – how dare you!) Hopefully my system will be re-sensitized to all Keep-Me-Wakey assistance.

HA!  That sounds like a good plan any way!

You have to understand – I LOVE coffee.  Monday-Friday I probably average 6 or 7 cups a day.  I rarely drink it on the weekends though.  I’m not too lazy to make it; I’m too lazy to clean out the French Press when I’m done.  Life sucks without a garbage disposal but I am looking for a nice compost bucket for the counter top, but I digress (as I usually do).

I also have a malignant sweet tooth.  The moment I decide I am not going to have any sweets I feel the compulsion to knock over a liquor store and grab all the sugary goodness I can load in to my arms.  Actually, the moment I decide to deny myself anything I soon find myself in an orgy of gluttonous consumption that leads to an agonizing shame spiral and, of course, MORE self indulgence.


So, my bright idea du jour is to cut out two things that I love most in life.  Wait – I wonder if I tried that with The Child, too, if that would work?!? 😀

    Wow, no caffeine? Every now and then I have that crazy thought and I’ll get up and just have a cup of tea but I tell you what, I am WEAK woman, weak.
