Well, I'm about five days into letting go of coffee and diet sodas. Funny, but suddenly this blog is misnamed. I NEVER thought I'd become a non-coffee drinker. It's just that I keep reading, over and over again, in place after place, about a connection between coffee drinking and adrenal fatigue. And coffee drinking and that it leaches minerals form one's bones. The same for diet sodas, not to mention the bad-for-me aspects of aspartame.
So, I'm working on changing a huge major habit in my life. It doesn't hurt that my old coffee maker broke, so I bought small Hamilton Beach number, and I hate it. I can't pour from the caraffee w/ o/ spilling it. I try, but I can't. I guess I'm as of yet still incapable of a slow, patient pour. At any rate, I think I'm going to get rid of it and just not have a coffee maker in the house. Will need to find a friend upon whom to bequeath my stash. Must cancel Gevalia subscription that I just signed up for. He he.
Well, in other news, my whole family's been feeling rather under-the-weather this past week. I was hoping we'd be better by the weekend, but Saturday night had me up a few times w/ one of the kids helping to make decisions about medicine and such and being informed that she's just thrown up again, etc. Yesterday had me sleeping off and on, and running a low grade fever. Everyone else seems to be getting better, but not really. People are still rushing to the bathroom etc. No one at our house went to Church yesterday or Saturday. Wes tried taking the kids to Church on Saturday evening, but E was not feeling well, and then he decided it would be a good idea to walk w/ his eyes closed and he banged into a brochure stand and had a fat lip from it. Serves the silly boy right, I say! Wes gave up at that point and everyone came home.
I'm ready to be feeling good again, but I'm not quite there yet, I'm afraid. It's so difficult to tell what's fibro and what's a bug. The difference is very very subtle. At least I'm going to get up here in a minute and pretend like I'm better, and see what happens with my day.
So, since I'm giving up coffee, should I rename my blog or not?
