Must stay awake today...any hints?

I worked 7p-7a...haha not even out of work yet. I need to stay awake with my girls this morning as my DH has to be at work at 7:30am. *yawn* My girls are rotten so I don't trust taking a little nap. They are 6 & 7. I will be hitting the coffee pretty hard this morning.

  • have you tried 5 hour energy shots

    it has as much caffeine as a cup of coffee but an excessive amount of B vitamins which will keep you awake.. I usually do them in doses. Half the shot in the begining, the half about 2 hours after the first. That way it's more steady energy than a lot at once.. I have never had a bad experience but be sure if you get REDLINE, you only take half for 7 hours...it's intense

  • I would go to dunkin donuts or star bucks and get a triple shot of energy. You'll need it. I know how you feel i got up at 130am sunday morning and went to bed last night at 9pm so that was like 19-20 hours and know it's 730 and I got up about an hour ago. Keep yourself moving

  • double brewed coffee, and don't eat anything with white flour/sugar (like white bread, pancakes, french toast, etc). I find the white flour/sugar combo makes my blood sugar crash and then I'm absolutely drained! my 2 yo hasn't slept well these last 3 nights, I felt OK at 430 this morning but I made french toast and now I am regretting it!

  • I have tried the 5 hour energy and thanks for reminding me they exist. I will have to find me some of that redline...that sounds like what I need for today.
