The Tate Way

it’s worked so far

$10 = dinner and the longest night and worse day of 2009 January 22, 2009

Spending $10 and getting a pint of beer, a bowl of chicken noodle soup, and a mug of cappuccino the size of my head was pretty awesome. And a good use of $10.

But you know what is not awesome? Staying up until 2am because of the aforementioned cappuccino. I mean I spent my time well by reading Twilight. But for some reason I woke up at 4am and could not go back to sleep.  That made for a really cranky and mean Dianna. That is a Dianna no one wants around.  If I didn’t work from home I’d would have been at my desk in my office crying, with my head on my desk.  I’ve done it before. And there was cussing involved.

I’ve been having a bunch of teachable moments and life lessons this week. It’s been that kind of week.  So here’s my lesson from that day: NEVER drink that much caffeine at 8pm. And just because my day was crappy didn’t mean it had to end that way.  And thanks to Tracee, Miko, Tisa, and Tashar I had a FAB night!
