Well, that was Brutal...Day 298

I decided to give up caffeine this week. I had my last normal consumption Wednesday morning. Around noon, I began my "detox." The rest of Wednesday was fine.

Thursday was brutal. AWFUL. I don't want to be dramatic, but the lack of caffeine made me sick...more than once.

Luckily, Friday was much better. Saturday was great. I thought I would be in the clear today, but I have had a couple headaches, but overall pretty good. I think I have just about beaten the addiction. Thing it, I had no idea I was "addicted" to caffeine, but apparently I was.

Aside from the headaches and nausea, I have also experienced sounder sleep at night and a much earlier bedtime, hence no posting the last few days :o) I am still drinking about 10 ounces a day to curb the headaches. I am hoping to be drinking zero ounces by this weekend...wish me luck!

Have any of you had similar experiences?

Since I haven't posted in a few days, here is a "brief" run down of our last few days...

On Friday, we spent most of the afternoon outside enjoying the beautiful Fall weather...

Well, I was shocked to see her on Pinterest a few days ago...

Haha! Totally cracks me up that someone "pinned" her and her wild hair under "art inspiration."

On Saturday, we had our adoption home study in the morning and then Sunshine had "Spirit Kid" cheer camp at her school. Before we left, I snapped a few pictures of my sweet little second grader...she is growing up so fast!

She had a great time at the camp! The varsity cheerleaders were so good with the kids. Look at that sneaky little smile as she is putting "bunny ears" on her leader.

She did about a hundred cartwheels when the group ran out :o)

She is sooooo excited that the "Spirit Kids" will be performing at the football game this week!

The little kids loved watching their sister perform their cheer and dance at the end of camp. Baby Boy clapped and yelled, "Yay Dashton!!" over and over. Sweetness!

As we were parking the car at the school, we listened to the end of the Razorback game (Sunshine performing is one of the only things that could have made us leave the house during the last few minutes of the super close game!) and were SO excited the Razorbacks were able to pull out a win over Vanderbilt! We should have totally dominated that game, but we didn't. We were so lucky to come out on top of that game!

Today, after church, the little kids took a nap while I took the big girls to a super fun Halloween party!

My friend, Tricia, always gives the best Halloween parties! I have no idea where she finds the time, but my girls are thankful she does :o)

Tonight, we had our last Grace Based Parenting class. The study was SOOOOOOOOOOO good. If you have the chance to participate in a GBP class, I highly recommend it!
