Memory Lane

originally blogged May 15, 2007

Okay - time for all the skeletons to come out of the closet! I am a coke addict and I need help. As in rehab. My problem is starting to affect my children and that's where you are supposed to draw the line, right?

I've known I have had a problem for some time. But this morning's events have led me to believe I might need professional intervention. Anyone who knows me, knows I love Coke - as in the cola variety. (Diet Coke when I am not pregnant). I drink one every morning by 7:30AM with breakfast. I don't like coffee...we don't even own a coffee it's my jolt in the morning.

I have been known to put 5 kids in the car and get to a drive thru if we are out in the mornings. Or call my Mom at work and invite her over for long as she'll bring me my fix from the vending machine in her office! Any other time during the day I either drink Coke or water....maybe milk with dinner. Not the best habit. I try to limit it to 2 cans a day. But that doesn't always happen. Anyhooo.....

This morning Matt and I had a simple miscommunication that led to pregnant, emotional Me shedding some tears. We figured it out and he left for work. I was drying my face and composing myself when Megan asked, "Why are you crying, Mommy?" to which I replied, "Oh it's nothing honey, Mommy just got her feelings hurt." She thought about it for a minute and said "Did Daddy take your last Coke for breakfast?"

Yes...I need help. Does anyone know of a Coca-Cola rehab facility???


FYI - 4 years later it's no skeleton. I am still shamelessly addicted.
I like to tell myself it could be worse.
I could be addicted to diet pills and botox, right?
Instead it's just diet coke and blogging.

(Thank you Mique. This DC girl loves you for this print!)

Okay, I almost was going to say CONGRATULATIONS and just looked at the "original post date". Silly me ;)

And oh yes on the coke, just not for breakfast. I'll take my coffee with a cup of FF Vanilla Creamer please :)

Then coke with everything else......including Coconut Rum!

I've said it before but I easily could have written this post! I think we have to stand proud as the Diet Coke addicted of the world!
