I didn't Dew today

So, this morning, I left the house without drinking my usual can of Mountain Dew (or a generic substitute). I was feeling good. The sun was shining, I had eaten a good breakfast, I didn't need caffeine and sugar to get me going. At lunch, I just had water with my meal, so again, no caffeine.

I'm crashing now. My thoughts are so slow, it is like mentally running on sand. I'm feeling a slight hint of a headache developing. Of course, so of this may just be because it is the end of the week, but I know the signs of caffeine withdrawal. I generally save such self-control for the weekend, though. I like to go at least one or two days a week without caffeine to help me pretend I don't have a problem with it.

I get to fend for myself this evening. My husband has some sort of reception tonight and won't be coming home until well after suppertime. It's been a while since he's had one of these things. This one has something to do with some honorary degrees the university is giving out.

Business hours

I had a corporate training meeting at 9:00 yesterday morning. I had an 8:30 department meeting this morning, in which my manager informed us that she has been promoted up a level as part of a more general reorganization. I have another morning meeting tomorrow. Life is conspiring to make me keep standard hours! Oh well, at least that means I can go home right now instead of in an hour.
