It was cool enough this morning to need the heat for a few minutes!

I are doin’ heap big happy dance right now.  Hopefully, this means the summer heat is pretty much gone.  About freaking time anyway.

School starts back tomorrow.  I’ve been nice and busy filling the freezer with family sized & individual sized meals.  Soups, casseroles, etc… anything to make my life easier the next few weeks.

I’m looking forward to school again.  In fact, without it, I’ve been sorta bored.  I imagine I’ll be bitching about having too much to do within a couple of weeks.

Thankfully though, this time around there shouldn’t be any absolute idiots in the classes- no pupils who argue with the teacher that alveoli are the brown spots around nipples.  None that say, “Ewwwwww!” when a bare butt is shown.

I’m hoping anyway.

I’m still not smoking, working on the end of the first full week, but damn the last couple of days have been kinda tough.  I’ve found myself wanting a smoke pretty badly both days.  PMS or upcoming stress- not sure if either is the cause, but I’m strongly considering slapping a second patch on over my mouth.


Dependent on the work load, I’m likely not to be around much for awhile.  Y’all behave yourselves now, ya hear?

    Can’t promise to behave……….but I’ll try. 😉

    Good luck with school.

    Great job on being smoke free for a week!!!!!!

    We have been using some heat since last week , off and on. I think summer has decided to give in, as fall has taken it rightful place in natures calender.

    Time to tune up the snow blower and un-bury the snow shovels . : P

    I started to quit smoking in 1992. I’d have brief relapses, the longest being two semesters at college and then a few months after 9/11. I have not had a cigarette since 12/01. I didn’t stop craving them until the past couple of years. I think I might have craved the habit and the “deep breathing” more than the actual cigarettes. That might be a key in beating the habit.

    I chewed a lot of gum the first year. Honestly, now I don’t think, “I need a cigarette,” when I get stressed. I think, “Wow, I wish I was at the gym.” Find something to replace it that helps with stress…well, minus manslaughter. heh. Good luck with school and just take one day at a time with the smokes. I’ve prayed for your success. 🙂
