A Late Birthday Present

I didn't get much sleep Saturday night. I went to bed with a crazy bad sore throat and it kept me up all night. I just got over strep that moved into my tonsils in March. Now I'm getting hit with it again.

Of course it's during my race week. It's not like I am freaking out or anything! This is one late birthday present I CAN do without, thank you very much.

I made the new boy take me to Trader Joe's to pick up this lemonade today.
Obsessed with this stuff
I think it did the trick last month when I was sick and I am working on making the bottle disappear. Very quickly. I do love it very much.

I think I've gotten sick because I have upped my workload of massages last week, didn't get as much sleep as I needed, and that birthday bike ride drained me more then expected. I also donated plasma for the first time. Mostly I am blaming it on giving up caffeine and going decaf this week.

I Tolerate You
Note to self - Never give up caffeine right when you start PMS'ing. Let's say its a miracle the new boy is still around. :-)

It took a couple of days to get the brain fog lifted. Caffeine expands your blood vessels, and I FELT the lack of brain blood last week. I feel less zombie-like a week later but I am ready to get back to Real coffee. I can taste the difference in roasts and I enjoy my coffee. Even though Startbucks is the only decaf I can stand, this coffee snob can taste that it isn't as smoky and more watery and flavorless then normal coffee.

Saturday, one of my friends hosted a dB Drag and he did this one in Garden City.

And the aftermath.

Go big or go home I guess.

How was your weekend? Caffeine - favorite way to consume it?


  1. Ugh, sorry about the sore throat. Hope that lemonade does the trick.

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
