I just had a huge DUH! moment.
Last night before bed, I had a nice hot cup of my deeeelicious Gano Excel Decaf "Healthy" Coffee. It's supposed to have even less caffeine than regular decaf.
Well, last night I was so proud of myself for getting IN bed by 10:00pm (for the second night in a row!). This was a huge accomplishment for me as I had been in the terrible habit of staying up until midnight to 2am for the past month. Anyway, I could not for the life of me go to sleep. I was tired. But my body just would not sleep...
I last remember looking at the clock at 1am. Drat. Double drat! Why couldn't I go to sleep?
Well, this morning I figured out why. I went to dump the hot water out of my stainless steel thermal insulated carafe...and it came out brown! Zoiks. And then the DUH dawned on me.
I forgot to take the old, used coffee filter (with regular coffee grounds in it) out before I ran the fresh pot of hot water.
I had added regular coffee to my mix of instant decaf without realizing it. This was a huge DUH moment for me. Might seem small to others but when it has to do with my sleep or my coffee, it IS a BIG deal...and this, unfortunately, messed up both!
I asked Napoleon if I had a brain and he said No.
