THE WEEK IN REVIEW: NO MORE…. Coffee? (JANUARY 29th – February 4th)

Posted February 5, 2017 by @Angelized_1st in Memes, The Sunday Post / 6 Comments

I decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Last week was pretty hectic. I had something to do after work every single day, except Friday. While some errands were relaxing (beautician, nail salon), others were less so (dentist). To top it all off, I got the wacky idea to give up coffee. Partly due to me being so addicted that I have to drink a pot to feel any effects. Partly for medical reasons. I’ve been told that a few medical issues I suffer from would be less exasperated if I gave up coffee 🙁 Suffice it to say, the going was pretty tough. I didn’t quit cold turkey. Instead I’m substituting coffee for tea. However, that didn’t stop me from getting withdrawal headaches from Monday – Wednesday. By Thursday the headaches had stopped, and I actually felt somewhat rested when I woke up. Plus, I was able to stay awake until bedtime. I guess this is my long-winded way of explaining why my blog wasn’t very active.

Aside from battling my coffee addiction, working, and running errands I didn’t do much (see: coffee withdrawal above). I went to bed 3 times last week without dinner, because I passed out cold by 7PM. Lame! The highlights of my week were receiving my new traveler’s notebook and TSBI fountain pen, buying my AMC Best Picture Showcase tickets, and catching up on some TV I missed. This week should be lots calmer, so I hope to get more accomplished, and finally get my reviews up.

      Stormi, it was rough in the beginning, but now it’s pretty smooth sailing. I’m not caffeine free, though. I switched to tea. I’m really enjoying this new series. In fact, I think I like the second novel more. Have a great week!

  1. Wow, a big week and no caffeine on top of it!

    I don’t drink coffee but I drink WAY TOO MUCH diet coke and really need to cut back. I’ve done so before and know the first few days are hard!

  2. What a week! I sometimes feel like patting myself on the back because I don’t drink coffee….and then I remember that I drink 3+ cups of black tea every day…so yeah…I feel you on the addiction. Good luck – you can do this!
