So this is what it's like to function without caffeine

The coffee pot is gurgling in the kitchen and I'm at the computer, sans caffeine. What has gotten into me? I normally stand at the coffee pot, cup in hand, watching it brew and drip, waiting for there to be enough in the pot to pour into my awaiting cup, which will then be poured into my awaiting bloodstream. The planets must be out of alignment or something. Or else I just stumbled out here inadvertently and didn't have the energy to walk back into the kitchen. I might be screwed when the coffee's done and don't have the gusto to go get any.

My babies will begin arriving any minute and I'm not dressed. And frankly, I'm not sure I have any intention of getting dressed today. It's Wednesday, we have no plans, it's supposed to rain and heck, why waste clothes when my pj's are so much more comfortable. The only thing on my agenda today is to get my GS stuff organized out here in my office and to file the stack of papers a foot high on my desk. I can so do that in my pajamas.

I see headlights coming up my driveway. That means Cute Big Baby's here and I must at least have a sip or two of coffee before they make it into the house. Whines to follow later.

It amazes me how one becomes so co-dependant on a beverage. I was sipping my second cup of coffee while reading your blog. I also had my ever-present diet Pepsi waiting beside my coffee cup.

Mrs.Coach-Heather has said many times that when I die it'll take three days for my body to actually shut down because there's so much caffeine running through my veins.

Boggzie-Can you still get that stuff?? I remember eating chocolate donuts and drinking Jolt one morning before school. We were all wired until second hour then we crashed. Hard.

I wish I just had a coffe IV hookup. I'd teach my daughter how to start the drip first thing in the morning, so mommy could wake up happy. :)

We....the people
