Caffeine High!

Spread the love

I can’t sit still any longer!

Have you ever had one of those days?

You just want to get up and dance, or go for a run (and I hate running) or heck maybe stand on your head in the corner and stack bee-bee’s with your nose…. (yeah don’t ask)

Well today… I’m having a case of the Friday’s where I want to do something besides just sit.  I think part of my problem is I had way to much caffeine… and that’s not much seeing as though I’ve been weening myself off of it.  It’s a slow process but I’ve been trying to up the water ante (you know, like poker). 

I used to drink pop (or as some of you call it Coke or Soda) by the gallon fulls.  And then one day it didn’t taste so hot.  Today I was in the mood for a Coke (literally, that’s my fave) so I got one.  For usually only drinking a couple sips of pop a day, going to a 20oz Coke will send your system in to over drive.

I don’t drink coffee usually… really only drink that when I’m in desperate need to stay awake (like around New Years).  My Sophomore year of high school I fell asleep 10 minutes before midnight, so my junior year the guy I was dating, his family pumped me full of caffeine so bad it made me sick.  Coffee with hot chocolate, creamer, and sugar.  Wow that’ll send you into overdrive.  I didn’t go to sleep that night well until 8am the next morning when I crashed for 8 hrs.

I know, how American am I for not drinking coffee.  My grandparents couldn’t believe my mom didn’t drink it.  They spent many nights over a pot of coffee making horse deals.  That was their income… selling/trading/breeding horses.  In fact they had the #1 stud to breed your Arabian mare to in 1978.  Yeah he was that good.

So when I started out here to work my then boss (and even my now boss) live on coffee.  She couldn’t believe I didn’t drink coffee and lumped me in with the now day adults who drink pop as a morning wake-up call.  But anyway… I’ve been trying to give up pop… wish me luck 🙂

Happy Friday!

  1. My husband and I drink wwaaaayy too much pop. I dare not reveal the true number. (It's scary.) I've tried to cut back, but I'm not very good at it. Some days I can limit myself to two, but if I get nervous or bored I just keep drinking. Good luck with it. I try to drink more water. I can do it if it has crushed ice and I can crunch it. It makes me feel like I'm eating something. (Or I just have that iron deficiency thing…)

  2. LOL, you are so funny. I don't drink coffee either. I've got two aunts who drink it by the gallon, but that's about it in my family. I'm a tea drinker, but I've switched to decaffeinated several years ago. I can drink TONS of tea though……

  3. I am a coffee girl myself, and when I drink pop I think it is the sugar more than the caffiene that sends me for a loop. good luck on your quest

  4. Pop! Diet coke is the only one. And don't give me that generic stuff either. Blah! The most I can handle is two. I prefer to be at one but such is life. haha. Good luck.

  5. I used to not be a big coffee drinker, either, and I guess compared to some I'm still not, but I do like my Starbucks 🙂

    Very cool about the Arabian stallion. The market is sure different now days. It would have been very neat to have been a part of it during the heyday, back then. I bet they have all kinds of neat stories!
