The skies keep dropping buckets of rain around here. This has been going on for days on end. It's warm which is nice but soon will end. The rain is supposed to change over to snow tonight...grrr.
Smoking update...no I didn't cold turkey it yet. Emotionally, it's been rough on me lately. I smoke no more and usually less than half a pack a day. That is the first step. I will be smoke free in a month or so. I have noticed that the smoker's cough I had since my ear infection in the fall has disappeared. I am starting to sneeze and cough up all the crap that has been sitting in my lungs so there is progress being made. I think smoking cessation is sort of like dieting...we have to do what works for ourselves.
I do have some problems on weekends controlling the amount of smoking but do not go over my half pack limit. When I'm working it's far less. I know the time is coming when I will have to bite the bullet.
Anyway, my thought for the day, week, whatever is reflected in my tag. We really must be a friend to ourselves, love ourselves, accept our quirks; we are far from perfect. Beating ourselves emotionally is totally non-productive.
As many of you know from my tag journal, I have been trying to get my clothes under control...no small task as I have the smallest room with a ridiculous closet. It was the baby's room previously...9X10. The closet is not deep. ROLF...I have to use those baby hangers because the louevered doors won't shut with full size hangers. I have two plastic containers of summer clothes. Only half of my winter clothes are jammed in that closet, and it's not that I have tons of clothes. That closet is tiny. I bought this neat wardrobe thingy at Home Depot that is sort of a canvas color and zippers and is on wheels. It's got all kinds of pockets and things on the side. Joey is going to put it together in Megan's room today. After I get the other room totally empty, I want to shampoo the carpet, then wheel the new thingy in there. I'm just hoping I have enough room to hang the rest of my stuff in it. Storage in this place is a huge problem. I've gotten rid of just about all I can so keeping my fingers crossed.
I'm sort of feeling like my strep is coming back...my fault because I didn't take my medication as diligently as I should have.
I have the day off today as it's Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday. I'm hoping to get the room cleared and shampooed today.
I think I'm back off to bed for an hour or so. I'm always up at my usual time even on my day's off.
Take care all.....the winter drears will soon be gone....
