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!
