I had something kind of serious I was going to post today, but I just don't feel like it. Here's why. I am way tired. Yesterday, I cut three lawns, watched a long-ish movie, and then engaged in other physical things before actually being able to retire.
I guess it is good kind of tired, though. Today in Kentuckiana is a sunny delight of a day. Clear skies and 70 degrees. I don't have a lot of real work to do on a Friday, today, so I am in a pretty good and relaxed mood.
There are a couple of concerns I have on my mind, though. One is my coffee consuption. I may be an addict. I remember a time when coffee was just an option. I would get a cup if it were handy. I would only sip on it for a while and rarely did I finish one cup. Now, I slurp it down like Kool-Ade. I even think about how I can get coffee. For instance, last night I thought that when I go to check on my mother late at night, I can prepare her coffee maker so I will have some when I get there in the morning. I did and it was good.
I don't really know what it is. It isn't the caffeine as that drug doesn't effect me. Last week I went to a bachelor party at a local bar. I drank two caffeine-laden diet cokes and then six (count 'em) SIX coffees. Then, at only about midnight, I went home to bed - fell asleep in seconds. Plus, I usually drink de-caff at work, so . . . I don't know.
The other thing on my mind is that I am sitting here hammering out this post at my office and I am STARVING! I even had breakfast today! Why am I so hungry? Because this weekend is Tri-Fest in this town. There are blocks of food booths about 50 yards from my location right now. Somehow the smell of food is getting into the ventilation system in my building and it is working on me! I will be down there at lunch trying to find the 5% of the total food options that my diet will allow. What is Tri-Fest you may ask? I have no idea, but there is food involved. Hmm . . . I wonder if anyone is selling coffee down there.
