Out of the Blue

We've been lucky in finding takers for some of the boxes and paper we've found ourselves buried in as we unpack from moving. But this still left us with a lot more that needed recycling. Our previous home was more suburban and this kind of stuff was handled by curbside pickup, but, while we're not exactly in the country now, things are definitely a bit more rural. So yesterday MrsBlue and I found our way to the local dump, which was a new experience for both of us. Once we figured out the system, it was surprisingly easy and cool. We knew we had to pay for what we were dropping off by weight, but were not expecting the system to involve weighing our car before and after our dumping to calculate the difference. Pretty cool.

That article about quitting coffee is pure garbage. 2 weeks? BIG DEAL!

I quit caffeine cold turkey 10 years ago and it had a dramatic effect on my sleep habits and all around wakefulness throughout the day. Sleep better, need less sleep, don't crash throughout the day.

But.. I had to go through 4 weeks of migraines by quitting it cold turkey (I don't get migraines).

I stopped drinking caffeine about 6 months ago. I really miss the taste and ritual of it, but my sleep and energy levels have been much more stable.
