Enough about that....
After 8 years out of college, I have recently decided to try to return to my "hippie" roots. I have continued to recycle faithfully, buy organic when I can afford it, dry my clothes on a line, eat fresh and natural produce as often as possible, grind my own grain into flour for home made bread and I still have my bell- bottoms and peasant blouses (yes, the same ones I wore in college, at least, some of them) But, I must admit that over the years my addiction to Diet Dr. Pepper has only gotten stronger and stronger. Diet. Dr. P is absolutely, nothing, and in no way natural, healthy or good for the environment, or my body. So, I have given it up. Quit cold turkey.
I figured, I already have a headache, which pretty much never goes away. Why not have a caffeine withdrawal headache at the same time, and get it all over with at the same time?
Andy gave up caffeine several weeks ago. (side note, if you know someone who would like some delicious coffee that is just sitting in our freezer, let me know!) So, we have decided to keep all carbonated beverages away from our home, at least for the time being. Instead, we bought some delicious decaffeinated green tea, and blueberry and chai and made some awesome ice tea mixtures. And I don't even have a caffeine headache anymore. Isn't life good?
I am going to go make an apple pie.
I feel so very hippie.
Now if only Andy would let me have my own chickens!
