Caffeine Filled Day

I got up at the crack of butt this morning to go for a run and really was dragging.  I needed an extra cup of coffee this morning just to get my tired rear out the door.  I got to work and I am needed to take a kid home by 8:45 AM so, I head over to his house to see if anyone is home.  Of course, there isn't...so on my way back, I realize I need gas so I stop to fill er up and I need cash so I decide to get a soda and get some cash back.  For those of you keeping track...at this point, 1 soda, 3 cups of coffee.  By 10:30 my principal is asking, demanding and begging me to take some forms over to the district office so, I say "hell ya"  on the inside (gets me off campus and away from the craziness that exists there) but, I actually say "Well, ya, I guess I can go over there quickly."   While driving back, I decide I am craving and must have a Marbucks doughnut...well, I can't get a doughnut and NOT get coffee and do I think to get decaf??  NO, of course not!!!  Score = 1 soda, 4 cups of coffee, 5 bites of doughnut and the thought that I should go back and get another one since I didn't even enjoy it with my coffee.  

Now, when I return to my office I can hardly contain myself, I can't sit still for any length of time, I am talking a mile a minute, I can't shut up. I figured I would crash and crash hard at some point during the day.  I must have looked like the energizer bunny at the peak of the caffeine explosion (just keeps going and going and going and going) which occurred sometime around 1:00 when all the kids got out of school, the police arrived, an angry parent comes and demands to talk to me, two kids missed the bus, etc...I needed one more caffeine jolt to get me through the day.  By the end of it all, the score was...2 sodas, 5 cups of coffee, 1 Marbucks doughnut and a caffeine induced coma at about 4:00 PM.

I have seen your comments all over too! Do you read peewee's blog?

You and I are going to get along so well. I gotta come visit and drink caffiene, and eat donuts- SOON

Good gracious, girl! That's alot of caffeine. Not that I'm judging or anything. But you sure went on a binge.

The one puzzling part was this...why only ONE, deliciously sinful Marbuck's doughnut? I would've had to have had at least another to level the playing field with all of the coffee. But that's just me. Good thing I don't drink coffee. Sweet tea is my poison ;-)

Have a great weekend,
Pam

I'm with Pam - you should have followed that instinct for the 2nd 'diet' doughnut!

So - 'splain about the police?

and the mad mommas?

Maybe you could get a job as a lion tamer - probably lots less stress!

My friend, the solution to your situation is quite easy. You simply need to exercise less, then you wouldn't need to drink copious amounts of caffeine.

Silly girl!
