No Coke for you!

Do you remember when they first put those luggage trolleys in the airports around the U.S.. You paid like $3.00 for them but when you returned them you got a quarter back? Well back in the day, people would roll them down to the gate and leave them when they boarded their flight. One morning after our morning flights departed I was gathering them up to roll them back to the return depot so that I could collect the quarters for turning them in. (BTW-they do not do that anymore). So here I was, all 115 lbs of me pushing around 7 carts through the gate lobby. This man stopped me and asked me if I needed any help, I proceeded to tell him, "no thanks, I do this all day long, it supports my Coke habit." He looked at me with this concerned look, and walked away shaking his head. When I realized what I said, I was like, no, no, no, thats my Coca Cola habit. I was chasing him down the hall, my trolleys in tow.

Those who know me, know all about my relationship with Coca Cola. She has been my constant companion for most of my life. And has surpassed any of my other addictions in longevity. I have to say, I love it. The sound that it makes when you open it, then pour it over ice. And that first gulp. OMG- to me, it is heaven. So first up on my journey to the new me, is giving up my oldest friend. (as we all know some friends are fabulous, but can get you into trouble too). So I have rung in the New Year with a 4 day headache, and not from any fun or alcohol I might have consumed on New Years Eve. Today marks day 5 and the headache is better, and I'm feeling pretty pumped about having made it through these first 5 days. Everyone says that I'm going to feel so much better, and have more energy. I'm not really feeling it yet, and you have no idea how badly I want to rekindle my friendship, But I'm going to stick it out. And now that I've shared this with you, I know you will give me shit if I take back up with that naughty girl.


I want to say a great big thank you to everyone who took the time to read this and my

first post. I am truly blessed to have each of you in my life. Thank you for all

of your support, I'm feeling the love!
