I'm starting to think there might be a little problem. Working from home and boredom have led me to make coffee for something interesting to do. Its not like I'm hurting for work, but when the machine is just sitting out there for some reason I feel more productive when I'm brewing something.
It started out about a year ago. Waking up in the morning meant my morning coffee. After that I'd have maybe another cup after dinner to sort of keep me going strong until bed time. I actually do like coffee, I'm not just drinking it for caffeine sake. Now however its up to 5 or 6 cups per day, which is not healthy.
Lately I have been making more and more decaf - and in fact I am drinking half-caf right now. You can see it brewing in the photo above.
Problem is that because most of the time its not decaf or half-caf but full blast regular coffee and it tends to keep me up at night. (Up until 3am or so) Then I get up roughly around 8:30am. You do the math. It works out to being 5 1/2 hours per night which is taking its toll on me.
Therefore, I make a new resolution - No more regular coffee until I can handle it again in small amounts. Half-Caf and Decaf may apply.
