Cravings

Oh, Internets, I want a cup of coffee. Last night I made toddy, and my whole kitchen still smells like it. Before that, my kitchen smelled from the half-pound of freshly roasted espresso beans I'd picked up from Dunn Bros on Sunday and used to make it.

Sunday was the last day I had coffee.

That's because Sunday morning I woke up with a sore throat. I had coffee at Dunn Bros later that morning, even though I knew I probably shouldn't--and did chase it with two gigantic mugs of herbal tea. But the sore throat stuck around, so I picked up a box each of Airborne and Cold-Eeze that evening and have been dutifully taking both. I've also been drinking a lot of water and herbal tea and avoiding sugar. And coffee.

I've been feeling headachy and fatigued, but I'm not actually sure how much of that is from fighting off a cold and how much is from not having coffee! I guess maybe I'll go take a tiny nap.

not being able to have coffee is the reason I refuse to get sick. No caffeine only makes it worse for me.

I hope you feel better soon!

Yes, I'm a bit of an addict, I'm afraid. In happier news, I'm feeling better! Thanks for all the good thoughts.
