Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

Thanks to all of you who gave a shot at interpreting my dream. I think it will be better for all of us if I just try and put it out of my memory.

Now, here's an update on my boycott of caffeine and sodas. It's been almost 3 weeks and up until this week I haven't really missed them. The key words are "until this week". Oh my heavens, this week has been torture.

It's kind of like when you used to break-up with a boyfriend and for a while you feel great because the possibities are endless. But alas, you realize that those endless possibities really do have an end. Then, you go back to that old boyfriend and you realize "it" just isn't there anymore because you've changed and grown and aren't the same person you were when you were with him. Do ya'll get it????

Basically, this is what happened. I went to Chick-Fil-A this morning to get a biscuit and while in line I felt this overwhelming NEED to get a diet coke and ya'll, I did it. I ordered and then imagined how good it was going to be when I took that first sip. Oh my soul, I felt giddy. I got my order and pulled up a little, put my straw in the cup and took that first sip and Oh my internet friends, it was so bad! And I tried to make it work! I took a few more sips and I just realized that it's like the diet coke and my tongue have nothing in common anymore. It just made me realize that I'm ok without you, diet coke. I'll be fine without you.

Now on to bigger and better things. Jay Baby and I are leaving to go to the beach after work tomorrow night! I'm super excited and totally fired up about seeing the ocean. Ahhhh, the ocean, I hear it calling me even now - "Jill, Jill... hurry....". OK, I really can't hear it but I'm pretty sure it's calling me none the less.

What are you guys doing for the 4th?

Jill, don't go back to the coke! Water, pure water.... bliss. That's what I keep telling myself anyway. I don't want Mt Dews at all anymore, don't even think about them. But, I miss Cokes. I really think I miss the carbonation, so sometimes I will get a caffeine free coke.

But, the inlaws are coming home on the 4th and we are going to grill out that night and shoot fireworks.

Jill, I hope you and Jay have a great week-end. I don't what Daddy and I will be doing. I hope Mr KidneyStone will have gone away by then.

You are so funny! I can't imagine a day when my tongue and diet coke have nothing in common. I am impressed with your overcoming the addiction! I keep thinking about your mom bc we are in St. Simons/Sea Island right now and she said she took an etiquette class at the Cloister once. I really want to do that! But probably won't find the time. Anyway, talk to you later!

lol! You're a trip! I wish that I could give up my two cokes a day habit! Girl, there's just no better drink out there than COCA COLA! Not for me anyhow....

Have a great holiday weekend! We plan on doing as little as possible. lol!

That's amazing. Simply amazing. I don't think that any amount of time would ever make me be able to say "I don't like you, coke". then again, I don't think I could go too long without it to find out.

That's great Jill! I am drinking a lot more water than I used to, but I still have to have a Diet. Dr. Pepper every now and again!

No caffeine? Jill? Have you gone mad!? I went without cokes, diet cokes, etc, for a few months, and now I just have one now and then. I just crave that carbonation. I know it's so bad for you. :-( My coffee...now, Lord help the mister that comes between me and my beans. You are a better woman than I.
