Ever had the experience of while starting something new, something out of the ordinary, you have all this energy in the world? You don't feel tired. You can walk quickly everywhere and in fact it irritates you to have to go slowly. And the new activity can even be quite mundane but because it is novel it generates excitement.
You can go on like this for days, sometimes weeks and then it hits.
All the normal tiredness you should have felt catches up with you all at once. You feel like you have lead in every vein.
There is a solution to that feeling. You may be thinking sleep. You would forget then that I'm a mother and sleep is not an option except maybe between the hours of 1am and 4am.
No the answer is caffeine. And this:
is my drug delivery method of choice. I used to be embarassed to admit that I drank it for breakfast but I got over that. Around the holidays it is nice to combine it with chocolate Easter bunny for example or foil covered chocolates at Christmas. But you have to have the old reliable Diet Pepsi. With a multi vitamin of course.
