My plan to get back on caffeine has not gone as smoothly as I'd hoped. I thought I'd be chugging the real thing by now, but even the smallest amount (1 scoop regular to 3 scoops decaf) messes with my sleep. I have to admit the mornings are great. I feel so happy and energetic. But the mildest jitter still accompanies me to bed. I'm just going to take it slow. It may be a year before we travel so I have plenty of time to wean back on.
All quiet on the adoption front. We've been waiting 3 weeks for our I-171H and still we wait.
A little family news: My sister-in-law Tara is pregnant with her second. Yay! She's due November 14. We were laughing about how she's quitting caffeine and I'm starting it, both for the sake of our babies.
My other sister-in-law Allison's boyfriend Shawn finds out today where he'll be doing his medical residency. What an amazing accomplishment! Congrats Shawn.
