tired + caffeine = rough day tomorrow

Yikes, I'm tired.

For the last two nights, I haven't slept at all. Well, that's a bit of an exaggeration; I must have slept a bit. But it feels like I've been awake for days.

I never sleep well on Sunday nights - all kinds of things run through my head: did I do enough work this weekend? do I have everything ready for school tomorrow? what will I wear? why did I sleep until 9:00 this morning?

Then last night I came home from work and promptly fell asleep in the chair (instead of going to the gym. sigh). That made it hard to fall asleep at bedtime.

So what do I go and do? Silly me... I went to a meeting tonight and had 2 (yes, TWO) cups of coffee. The not decaffeinated kind. I can't handle caffeine in the mornings, never mind at 8:00 at night.

Now it's nearly midnight and I'm WIDE AWAKE, bouncing off the walls, and feeling a bit nauseated because I'm also extremely TIRED.

It's gonna be a rough day tomorrow.

Uh huh!

I used to have the pot going all day, and it din't affect me in any way. Then after so many years of drinking it,it just lost its flavor and appeal. I just stopped drinking it and din't have any any affects on me. Go figure. I drink lots and lots of water and green tea once in a while

Ooops! I hope it's not too bad today. Just be glad you don't have a desk job -- you'd surely fall asleep and get fired LOL!

I've been in the place you are right now. It's difficult to sleep when your mind won't turn off!!!

Oh, I hate those nights when you know you have GOT to get some sleep, but can't. I can't drink caffeine in the evenings either ... or after 3pm. I used to drink coffee daily, but like Kaye it lost it's appeal at some point. Now I just drink it once in a while. Hope you made through the day today.
