My love/hate relationship with coffee

 So last night as I'm talking to my brother-in-law and writing an e-mail when Tim decides that we should have some coffee.  I rarely turn up coffee.  I love coffee.  It's my friend.  I have a special place in my diet just for coffee.  Unfortunately, I have a tendency to over due the coffee. 

8:30 pm and this is when I decide to stat drinking coffee.  Normally I wouldn't think twice about it but in my old(ish) age I can no longer handle two gigantic mugs of black steamy goodness.  I seem to have forgotten that last night as I chugged back two full cups.  I knew this was going to cause problems later on as I was already vibrating around the house chattering Tim's ears off. 

Fast forward to midnight and there I am with no more TV to watch and Tim wanting to go to sleep, bug eyed and brain running at the speed of light.  Never mind the fact that I gulped down 2 huge glasses of water to try and get the caffeine through my system before I had to go to sleep.  It didn't work and only managed to make me have to pee every 15 minutes!  I swear I felt like I was pregnant again, I'd get back from going to the bathroom, get comfortable in bed, try and turn my brain off and then BAM!  Up I get again and start all over.  After stumbling back and forth to the bathroom in the dark envying my husband for snoring like a log and completely unaware of my inability to sleep, I think about waking him up so we can both suffer but then decide against it.  He needs his sleep.

Finally, the last time I looked at the clock and it was 4:45 am.  No problem as my brain finally turns off...  only an hour and fifteen minutes till I need to get up.  Needless to say I was dragging my ass around this morning stumbling into walls and not completely awake.  Thankfully, now I am awake thanks to a Tim Horton's run after dropping my wonderful little boy off with his Grandparents for the day.  I decided to make my morning coffee a little bit nicer by getting half hot chocolate half coffee.  I also joined it with a delicious strawberry cream cheese Danish.  Yummy!

Now, it's almost noon and I am slowly running down.  Coffee is wearing off and I brought diet caffeine free coke for lunch... what was I thinking?!  

Maybe my lovely husband will let me stop and get another wonderful coffee from Second Cup when we go to the mall to get Mother's day cards and a thank you card.  Maybe not.  He'll probably tell me I don't need it and that I should know better.  I do know better, believe me I know better!  I just can't help myself!  Well ok I could but I don't really want to...  that’s my problem.  So we'll see what happens.  I'm supposed to start my daring baker’s project tonight.  We'll see how far I get!

Lol! I'm sure you were most fun last night. :D A hyper Holly is always a good Holly.

Love/hate relationship? Surely not. I can't believe it's possible to hate coffee. Hopefully you use the real stuff and not instant!
