I feel good this morning, and I even hopped right out of bed at 6:30am! I'm not a morning person, despite my best efforts. I remember once for like a couple months, getting up at like 5am to go to the gym with my friend (you know who you are!) and doing aerobics with an insanely perky instructor to rediculous songs like "Zanadoo". What the hell? All without coffee. What were we thinking? We were out of our minds! And spin class?
The east coast turned me into a coffee drinker. And not just any coffee. Dunkin Donuts coffee. They put just the right amount of sugar, cream and crack in it. I'm not kidding. Crack! I haven't seen the stash, but I know this because I've caught myself using addict language. I say things like "I need a fix." and "Its been 2 hours since my last hit." and "I like the way I feel on it." and "I'm not myself without it." and "I can't live without it." and "What do you mean I'm out of coffee!?!?!" and "Get me SOME MORE COFFEE NOW!!!!" and "OH NO YOU DIDN'T! DON'T TELL ME I'VE HAD TOO MUCH!!! BACK OFF! WHO ARE YOU TO TELL ME WHEN ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!"
My students could always tell exactly how many cups I'd had. It was difficult when I was pregnant, because I had to lay off the crack, and I was really jonesin for a hit. I went into serious withdrawal. And I was hormonal. That was the worst part of it all! I guess it was worth it... :)
But today, even before I had coffee, which isn't D&D because the closest one is in Chicago, I felt good (I could just get up even earlier and drive there, believe me, its worth it!). Maybe that was because yesterday was such a good day with my babies, or because my husband got out of bed with me and went running, but I hope to have more days like this!
