I alternate between normal black tea and herbal lemon tea so I usually only drink a few mugs of tea with caffeine in them, and the caffeine in tea is not so much I believe? Anyway, have no problem with it. Apparently tea is even fine to drink before bed because some of the other things in tea which make you sleepy are stronger than the caffeine.
As for work, fortunately I don't have very far to go at all. I'm closest to the kitchen and the hot water machine and the emergency exit too. And the toilets. In fact sometimes I wish I had further to go so that I could get a walk in. I've taken to going to the loos on the floor higher up - it gets me a nice little stair walk several times a day plus the toilets there seem to be cleaner.
The sight filled the northern sky; the imensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer. ~ Northern Lights
For kids, this is fun. For adults, not so much. Driving to work is nerve-racking, as the ploughs can't be everywhere at once, so almost everywhere is in need of ploughing. Especially our yard, where they tend to plough the snow at night, meaning they work their way around my car (ant the nearby parking spaces) and leaving a tidy wall of snow around it. Ploughing the yard during the day when there are no cars there would just be too easy.
We have a large contraption (no English word exists for it, it seems) that is used to push snow away, but those are rubbish, which is why I am so surprised they are so ubiquitous. I have a spade in my car, and the intermediate form is a sort of shovel that also pushes snow away, but out co-op doesn't have that. But yes, last night I spend about an hour removing snow from the building's parking lot when we pay for a company to do it. Grrr.
