That Wasn't Too Bright Skippy

Actually it was pretty stupid.

But, I only have myself to blame. heehee

Seems that if you haven't done something in over a year you might not want to forget that you are not supposed to do it and if you do do it there may be side effects.

I was blogging around this morning and while reading our good friend Kathy over at kathy's kampground kapers she mentioned that she was going to have a nice glass of iced tea.  Mmmm, that sounded really good to me - so I decided "Me too!" and set about to brewing up a big ol' glass of tea. 24 oz of icy cold goodness on an especially hot day. YAY!

Or not.  I accidently grabbed the wrong type of tea bags.  Since I gave up caffeine a year ago I had to also give up my favorite tea in it's caffeinated form. No biggie - I got used to decaffeinated tea, but didn't drink as much of it as usual.  So, yes I took the caffeinated tea bags out instead and proceeded to make a honker glass of the stuff.

I think I now know how someone on speed feels like. It ain't so good.  I feel completely wired. I am surprised I can type this post and the previous one just now my hands are shaking so much. Weird.

Yep! I think maybe I need to put those teabags in a place not near my teabags.

On a happier note - I imagine my heart is beating at it's old speed again. heehee

Maybe you should give them away.

How do you make your iced tea - I don't do it often because it takes so long to cool or uses a ton of ice.

It's been a long time since I've had caffeine jitters - I drink cups and cups of green tea every day but it doesn't hit me like coffee used to.

amazing how much of a difference you feel when you are not used to caffeine isn't it? I used to drink 1-2 POTS (yes I said pots) of coffee when the kids were little... believe you me, when I decided to cut back I felt like I was dragging for about a month... :)

Oh dear Skippy - that is not good. I hope you are a bit more recovered now, by the time you read this. Who's a silly girl then?! Sending big hugs from across the pond.

Oh no!! I know the feeling! I gave up as well a little over a year ago. But everyonce in a while I have a reg. cup & I'm bouncing off the wall (but I get so much done!)

Hope you are able to sleep tonight.

Goes to show how powerful caffeine is to have that sort of effect.

Wait til the crash... and then the withdrawals... oH how fun this addiction thing is.

Me? Diet Coke. I keep trying to quit, then it lures me in with it's tractor beam of goodness...

Good one! But I bet it was good going down.

Well actually you should be having a wee bit of caffeine every now and again because it IS good for your heart. Not too much though.
