(Almost) one week

I feel horrible. Not always, but right now, especially.
It has been almost a week since I smoked a cigarette and while I feel mostly OK, this time of the day is the worst. I usually hang out with friends or at home at this hour and now I still do that but I can’t go outside and just smoke a cigarette.
It’s hard at other times to me too. I am a bitch in the morning because I can’t have a cigarette with my coffee. I use the lozenges so I can’t eat or drink while I am chewing or whatever you’re supposed to do with them, so I have to wait until I am done drinking my coffee and brushing my teeth.

But I am getting there and now I am at the point where I really want to smoke but I don’t want to fail. I hate losing. I already told some people that I am trying to quit and I can’t stand in front of them and admit that I failed so I am sticking it out.

It’s OK and it’s only going to get better. And to where nobody feels left out, the hubby is close to three weeks without smoking… I love you!!!


Just got done with all the income taxes (state and federal). FINALLY. And I am pretty happy. Maybe that new car will be here sooner than thought. I just have to make a choice on what I want….
What a great week. Really. The hubby gets a job, and one that pays more than we needed. I get a pay raise (more than they Feds paid this year!!) AND a very unexpected bonus. And now come the taxes and I almost feel like I don’t need those $365 Million at all. But I did buy my lottery ticket anyway. (I just can’t get enough)

And changes they are…
First of all, the hubby hasn’t been smoking for about two weeks now and I have completed almost the first 24 hours, but that’s not all.
We are finally a two-income family again. On Friday we got the good news that the hubby got a JOB!!!! We think he’ll start probably on March 1st.
The waiting is over and we get to stay right where we’re at. No moving to Floriduh or, as the last idea was, selling the house and buying an RV to travel the US for a year, which does sound nice, but having jobs and a house sounds nice…at least more secure.

Oh, and I got my passport on Friday as well!!!!

What’s the problem?

Actually there is none, besides the fact that I have absolutely no idea what to write, rant or link about.
Life as an American is really boring, so far anyways….
Oh well, it can get only better from here.
It’s finally February people, which means next month is spring!! I am trying to get spring to come sooner by doing my spring-cleaning early, but so far it hasn’t helped much. I’ll keep you updated on that.

Well, wasn’t that a worthy post?
