Another day, another headache

My head HURTS today. 

I had a deadline this last Monday, with a presentation, and I worked HARD all weekend long, staying up late to get certain things finished on time. 

Now, you should know, I gave up Dr. Pepper. I just stopped, cold turkey, because I have no self-control, and if it is in the house I will drink it. So it's GONE *poof* and everything was going swell. 


(The dreaded until...) I was on day three of 12-15 hour work days, and I was in the middle of animating a video for the landing page of a company I work with. And my boys were going out to do something, somewhere, and I said "Hey. Will you please bring me back a Dr. Pepper?" 

Now, these cute boys were like, "Mom. You stopped drinking that. You said that we should never buy you one again." 

And I was like, "I know, but my head is killing me, and I have tons more to do, and I just need some caffeine." 

And then they said, "𝆕okay-ay𝆕" in a kinda sing-song-y type of way. 

Except then they came home. And instead of getting me ONE Dr. Pepper, they went to Sams Club and brought home AN ENTIRE CASE. 

And since I have no self-control, I chugged way, WAY too many cans of Dr. Pepper. 

So now, today, I have a headache from caffeine and sugar withdrawal, but I am POWERING THROUGH with Tylenol and LOTS and LOTS of water. 

And now I know that even when I think I could have maybe just one little sip of my favorite drink, well... I CAN'T. 

The end.
