There have been a few things on my mind today. First - I'm tryin' to become an ex-smoker (again)(sigh). Tomorrow it will be two months since I had my last smoke. Mostly I don't miss it, but livin' with a 15-year-old boy - there are days I'm dyin'! I have been an ex-smoker before...I quit for 10 years, after smokin' for 10 years, and was really okay, ('cept for the 60+ pound weight gain) but then my town almost burned down. The whole town was evacuated and our neighborhood was the last to be allowed back in. I spent the better part of a week wonderin' if we would have a house to go home to (we did, kind of...more on that another time). Needless to say, I let the stress of that break me. So I've been a smoker again (on and off) for 10 years. (must be something 'bout the number 10) My issue this time is that the last time I quit, I satisfied my cravings with cookies! This time I gave myself two months without my beloved Salems before openin' the Nutrisystem box that came in the mail last week. So I'm gonna ask for your prayers...for strength to continue not smokin' ('cause I really love smokin' and am always lookin' for a reason to start again) and self-control to stick with the Nutrisystem and actually set-up the Wii Fit I bought six months ago and haven't takin' out of the box!
The other thing that has been on my mind today is "The Dreaded Hot-Flash!" Why oh why do they come on at the most inopportune times??!! But even more than that, I'd like to know if there is a "Hot-Flash-Proof" make-up!? You know, something that won't slide off my face onto the counter at the grocery store and that will somewhat hide the really red face!! If any of y'all know of some - let me know! I'll be forever grateful :O)
Thanks for listenin'
