Moderation(?) – Day 1

I’ll be honest and confess. The reason I’ve not written for a while is two-fold. First, I’ve been finishing a book project that has been in the works for over two years. Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, I became single-minded and worked furiously to complete it. That said, secondly, I became increasingly (okay horrifically) caffeinated and have been embarrassed by my lack of moderation. If I’m taking the Word of Wisdom to task for the spirit of the law – moderation – over content – coffee…I’ve failed miserably this week.

So today, with my clean desk, clean house, and uncluttered mind, I began day one of my effort to moderate my coffee habit. It is now a point of honor for me to be able to prove I’m not addicted. I can consume with moderation. Today (drum roll please) I will not drink coffee.

Ugh, It’s raining outside (strike one).

Wow, only 5 hours of sleep (strike two).

No! I can do this! I have the strength. After all, I come from frontier/pioneering stock. It’s in my genes to live in abstinence.

(elevator doors open – totally hottie standing there with latte in hand. My brain registers the hottie but then REALLY registers the latte. Hottie notices that I’m noticing the latte, not him.)

“Rough morning, huh?” (Hottie has “HOT” foreign accent that I can’t place.)

“I’ll jump you for the latte,” I reply.
