I quit caffeine cold turkey when I became pregnant with Hannah. Before that, I had a minor caffeine addiction - headaches, sleepiness after the high, etc. It was difficult to overcome, and not something I want to do again. Last week I had my first Diet Coke in a long time. It was heaven in a bottle. I got so much done that day! So the little wheels in my addiction-addled brain are beginning to turn again. Is caffeine really so bad, if I learn how to take it in moderation? There's a certain "zing" I get from it that no amount of rest or exercise can duplicate. Is that bad?
So, today I had my second Diet Coke, and I'm restless! I want to get things done - lots of them. Laundry, cooking and work are all fine, but they aren't satisfying. I want to create. My resources here are limited, but I can write. I just don't consider myself creative enough to write something worthwhile. Instead, I spend most of my time reading, critiquing and editing other people's work. When is it my turn to be the author?
