Giving up booze is hard. This time it feels caffeine is the worst. When I was pregnant with Scout I had to snuggle with the dog all day. If I didn’t want to cook or was too tired to do stuff it didn’t matter. The Captain just brought home take out. I had no one to answer to so when I was tired, I took naps. We weren’t buying a house and we weren’t spending an extra $200/month on feeding & diapering. So I guess I didn’t notice how much better I function with several diet cokes.
This time there’s a kid who wants all my attention. And she requires that I cook, assemble & feed her meals. She actually slept through the night and I got 7 hours of sleep (minus the night time peeing). I woke up like 3 minutes before she started talking through the monitor. And I’m still dragging ass.
I wanted to go to Sonic on the way home from the store. I wanted a Rt. 44 diet coke for $.89. I settled for the mini cans of diet coke I bought to get some in my system with out the overload of caffeine. I downed it in about 3 minutes. I want more.
