The need for Caffeine!
Just recently I began drinking coffee as a daily routine. It seems so strange, just a few months ago I rarely had a cup, and it had to be froofy, with lots of chocolate and flavoring if I did. Now, just get me something with caffiene! I wasn't even tempted in the past. It wasn't good for you, didn't taste that great, so what's the point. Everywhere I went people had their coffee. People joked about it, " I not awake untill I finish this cup," or, " don't bother me untill I get my coffee", etc. I never got it...........untill this summer.
I blame my husband first. He decided a couple of years ago that he had to have it every morning, and I still wasn't interested. Then the coffee shops, and drive thrus really started. He started working a really tough job, and needed the pick-me-up in the afternoons, or weekends. So while I'd be in the car, it was ok, how 'bout something with chocolate, mmm how 'bout a shake.... Then there were the playdates. My friends all served coffee at playdates, and met at coffee houses to chat. It was all over for me by this point. I realized how much happier and productive I could be, it felt good. This drug called " caffeine" really has a good side, I'm now "getting" why people have caffeine addictions.
I know this is no new revelation for those that started drinking it years ago. I have finally given in to the fact that life is draining, tiring, and demanding, so why not supplement a little:) This afternoon my 3 year old had just driven me into the ground. (you'd think just having one wouldn't be such a problem, but I'm telling ya, this kid NEVER sleeps, ALWAYS talks, and NEVER stops!! I'm too scared to have another because she is just exhausting!) My house was a mess, I needed to do laundry, make dinner, and just organize my own thoughts, but it just wasn't gonna happen with the energy levels I had. And I just couldn't handle Maddy anymore! I called my honey who was on his way home for a late lunch, and I pleaded with him to stop and get me a serious cup of caffeine. I felt defeated that I couldn't do it on my own, but really, you should've seen what I got done those next couple of hours! So now, I get it, I really do.....why the need for caffeine is multi-billion dollar industry!
