Miscellaneous stuffs

January 12th, 2012 at 06:53 am

Well, tomorrow makes four weeks since I quit smoking. Four weeks already? Yes, indeed! It's hard for me to believe but it's true. In that four weeks, I'll have not spent $238.00! I'm pretty proud of myself to be honest but know I'm not out of the woods. I have to stay on guard, all day, every day against that one cigarette that can undo the progress I've made. Meh.

Tomorrow is pay day. I have to pay the internet, electric, and post office box bills, get cash for the next two weeks of food and gas, and save every bit of money left to go to rent and insurances due in February. The hours at work are being cut again. This week I'm scheduled for only 31 but it's going to be more like 29, I think. I have two houses to clean next week, though, so the money from those will come in very handy.

I'm off work today and Mom and I are going to the Alzheimer's support group meeting. Oh joy! Those meetings are emotionally exhausting but good, also.....

    Four weeks is fabulous! Great job! I know what you mean about the Alzheimer's group. We used to go to one for my mom, and I always felt like smuggling in a hip flask.

    "We used to go to one for my mom, and I always felt like smuggling in a hip flask." Ha ha, that made me laugh. Out loud even. Wink

    Congrats on the progress, and a belated welcome back! I myself have been also pretty darn scarce here lately.

    You can't be a bona-fide cheapskate while still smoking now, can you? Smile

    Hey, nice work! That has to lead to a great feeling of satisfaction. Not only do you have the insurance of the financial boost, but it is also nice to think about the good it is doing for your body... Smile Jerry
