~It’s finally Friday! The kids are out of school Monday, so who knows what the next 3 days will hold. I will be definitely sending out my ~Seasons Afghan~ Squares for the swap at Lullabies and Lace on Saturday . I have some C-ghan squares to work on, some afghan squares to finish up, and just some things I want to play around with. (as of right now, I almost have the 7th swap sq completed)
~I have been trying my hand at designing……nothing major, I asure you. It’s actually a bath tissue cover. If it works out, and is not toooo wonky, I’ll post the patterm. Don’t expect to much though.
~Hubby is still not back……arggggg! The poor guy is working his tail off, and barely getting any sleep. He’s working way to hard, and is definitely not appreciated enough at his current job. Yes, I’m whining about it………I miss him. We’re thinking he’ll be gone at least for another week.
~We have some swap openings available for the Favorite Color Afghan sq. swap at the Swappers Ranch. We also so have a Getting to Know you SWAP getting ready to start. You can still make that one if you hurry!


I can hardly believe it my self. I honestly think it was just my time to quit.
I thank GOD every day for giving me the strength to do this.
I know with out his guidance……I would still be puffing away.
Making myself sick…a given, but hurting my girls as well. They don’t need to be around it at all.
~Hubby, when home, will not smoke around me. (he has a few times) When we go out in the car, he will not! So, he is helping in in his way. He is being very supportive. AND, he is now talking about quitting as well! So, I’m praying for him to have the strength to do so.
I guess all you can do is take it one day at a time.

It’s been 24 days………

Posted by sallenlouise on December 17, 2006

~Well, It’s been 24 days since my last cigarette. Thanksgiving day, I started feeling sick. It was awful. Well, a couple of days later, I realized that I hadn’t had one since Thanksgiving. I thought to my self, this is it. NO MORE EVER AGAIN!
~My being sick really helped. I think it was meant to be, lol! I had the crap for a few weeks, even had laryngitis, I just got over that one. It was the first time that I have ever had it. I have had sore throats, and a croaky voice, but oh boy! That was fun.
~ANYHOW! Still No cigs. I have had my moments, but I make it thru. I keep a lot of gum handy. I may get a bit irritible, but, I guess thats all a part of it!
~My hubby and kids are being very supportive. DH , when home(which is hardly at all), smokes outside. No ashtrays are left in the house, no cigs are anywhere, and when I need a cig fix, I’m just SOL! I grab a piece of gum. Which by the way, I buy gum everytime I go into a store.

~Have any of you quit smoking? Do you have any good tips to share? I know I’m going to have some hard times…………..I’m not looking forward to them!

~I am looking forward to a smoke-free life! Woo Hoo!
