Caffeine

It has been raining since midnight. How do I know? I could not get to sleep last night and was up at midnight. It was not the usual anxious or worrying type of feeling that caused me to be restless. It was like a caffeine high. I am always careful about my intake of caffeine after 6 PM, and I could not figure out why I was having trouble sleeping. Then I remembered getting a glass of tea at the women’s supper at church last night. When I asked the young lady serving the tea if there were any unsweetened tea, she said, "Oh this one that Beverly brought is unsweetened, decaffeinated tea". "Hmm," I thought, "decaffeinated, that might be nice." Normally, I can drink tea in the evenings without any problems, but I am willing to bet that this tea was different. So last night about midnight lying there wide-eyed, I wanted to call Beverly and ask her about her tea. "What the heck was in that tea, Beverly?" But I did not. I started to get up and get online to see if Buck were having a sleepless night or maybe Ashley, the night owl. I started to get up and read, but I had finished my book earlier in the evening. Aiee, I hate that non-drowsy feeling. I would not have been a good drug user.

It is still raining as I type this. Jesse rode with Toby to work rather than get her little car out in the muddy road. I may cancel art class today since our driveway is so bad (and I may be really sleepy later today). And Toby drank an extra cup of coffee this morning leaving me with the dregs. Funny, now I want caffeine. I am just not a happy camper today. I think I should go back to bed and start over.

I was online and wide awake. I usually am at midnight. IM me next time. (if there is a next time ;)

It would have been funny if you had called Beverly!I wonder what she would have said.

I hate it when I want to sleep but can not. Especially when I have to get up early the next morning.

I'm not being the least bit of a smart-a$$ when I say "that works for me!"... coz it does. I can go back to bed for an hour or two, even after drinking an entire pot of coffee, and have done so on many a day...

I was up at midnite your time last evening, as well... but I wasn't on-line. I probably should have been, though. Late-Nite teevee never lives up to its promise.

I'm with Buck I can drink coffee and go right to sleep, or get up of a morning have a few cups and fall asleep on the sofa. LOL

If ice cream were to be fat free and sugar free, what would it be made of?????
