I am coming to you today from a very clean office and an almost very clean kitchen-
I will be taking a very well deserved break @ 1pm to go swimming with the Littles.
but first I must share some fantastic news!
Whilst I slept- I reached 300 +1 followers! Yeah me!
Very excited about that. Lots of support for my creative ideas and I think I am gaining a small fan base, based totally on the nuttiness of my life that has nothing to do with teaching- that's okay too though- they say it takes a village! hee hee
I do have more Fantab-ulou-isticful (new word) news
One year ago, this was me
I know, I look awful as a red head- but anyway- that was me.
When dinner was over, I went to the deck to have a smoke.
When I woke up I grabbed my coffee and went to the porch to have a smoke.
When I was on the phone (which was a lot) I went to the garage to have a smoke.
When I needed a break, I just went to smoke.
The Mr quit four years before I did- and the only thing worse than living with a non smoker when you are one- is a reformed smoker!
You stink. Oh, God, that smell is awful. That soap isn't covering it up. blah blah blah
It was so easy to say I AM NOT GOING TO SMOKE when the Littles were on the way. I had a reason (that was my mindset)
So when I wasn't preggers or nursing- it was a time when I was smoking,
So this is on and off (mostly on) for 23 years.
So I made a decision about several parts of my life
1) I was going to become more organizned.
2) I was going to surround myself with Positive Pollys.
3) I was going to work on my OLW- Priority.
With a lot of hard work- so many wonderful things have come to fruitition.
1, 2, and 3 all started with this:
I did this cold-turkey!
Like, threw the unfinished pack away in front of the family and made the promise, cold-turkey!
After the initlal :
LOOK OUT FAMILY I AM GOING TO CUT YOU UP INTO LITTLE PIECES AND HIDE YOU IN THE CRAWL SPACE IF YOU DON'T GET AWAY FROM ME stage,
I realzed that life as a non smoker was pretty nice.
I didn't have to worry about my breath.
I was able to get my nails "did" - smoke always turned my tips yellow. And they have been "did" since July of last year.
I have saved lots of money.
I don't hack anymore.
OH MY FAV- I got my "grill" redone-It was never an option unless it was a "for sure" thing that I was really quitting. So Lots of Drama (and P.A.I.N) and $10,000 later- I have my smile (actually a better than before smile) back!
(Check out the post this pic came from- here The Littlest Little and I were trying to take a pic together)
So life has given me lots of goodies since I made that choice to quit.
Well, time for me to get back to cleaning, finish up my packing , and make a 1,000 lists and How-Tos for the family to use while I am away:)
That's us "throwing" the Squirrel Gang Sign!
Life is Good.
Have a Super Sunday!!!
