TIME ON MY SIDE

You can see Denny's newest battle wound; scraped nose & black eye from falling when we were playing outside Wednesday


Today is the 5th day w/out a stogie. I know I'm most likely annoying, writing about this. But that's what people do when they are in the process of quitting...you obsess about it. Really, it's on my mind all day. So that being the case, I must blog about it.
We feel like we have so much extra time now that we aren't smoking. It's weird, smoking only takes, let's say, 7 minutes. I was smoking 10 -15 a day, so that does add up to approx. an hour and a half.
I've been to the gym every day this week, and have been rocking the cardio for atleast 30 minutes. Usually longer, plus my strength training and other stuff, so my workouts have been extended to about 90 minutes.
Brushin' this morning after breakfast

Last night Bobby took me and the babes out to dinner to our favorite Italian restaurant, Bucci's. This place is so delicious, and G&D always love going there. I don't wan't to jinx myself here, but Grace and Den are always so good in restaurants. They always have been, whatever age/stage they are in. Guess they just like going out to din-din.
So anyway, this week has flown by. It's almost the weekend. No plans, no problems.
Today Grace told me that she was "growing up." Out of nowhere, she came up to me and said I'm growing up Momma. I said excuse me while I go in the bathroom and cry my eyes out.
I don't know where she comes up with some of this stuff

Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn't
quite find what I was looking for. I'm looking for
different ways to earn money... I did find this though...
a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
I made over $900 last month having fun!
make extra money

You are doing great and you blog as much as you'd like about quitting. I always feel better when I write about how I'm feeling!
