Sorry for disappearing! I took Monday & Tuesday off of work so that's why I've been M.I.A.
I had a really good long weekend & b-day. A friend of mine came up on Saturday night and stayed until early this morning. We went out dancing Saturday night and had a blast. I finally got to wear the sexy little green dress I bought the day after Christmas (and I still fit in it, even though I've packed on a few pounds). The best part was that I was not tempted in the least to smoke, even though the place was cloudy from all the smoking going on. I figured I'd have a really hard time, and might possibly cave, but no! I barely thought about it all. It's so much easier to dance without worrying about burning other people with a cigarrette!
I did LOTS of shopping this weekend. Too much! But my friend is from Kirksville and Walmart is the big place to shop up there. So I had to show her around, right? At least that's what I keep telling myself to justify the shopping spree. And it's really easy to justify buying things on your birthday -- it's like a guilt free pass... almost... until you get the credit card bill in the mail later!
We had some weather -- 10 inches of snow in just a few hours yesterday. I'm glad I wasn't at work yesterday -- none of my co-workers made it home in under 3 hours time, even though we live about the same distance -- 15 miles -- from work. Sunday was gorgeous!!! I left the house in a short sleeve shirt and no jacket.. other people were wearing shorts and flip flops! But then the next day it was pouring rain, the temperature was plummeting, and ice and sleet were falling. I'd be upset about it, but my husband's classes were cancelled that night, which worked out wonderfully -- instead of cooking dinner on my b-day, we got to go out and eat. That's always a plus, except for the part where your family members try to embarrass you by singing Happy Birthday loudly in the middle of the restaraunt .... grumble grumble.... but oh well, at least the food was good.
So that's all going on with me. It was REALLY nice to take the mini-vacation from work. And my friend being here ensured I actually did something with my break, instead of sitting around the house being lazy. So I had a REALLY good weekend!
And 10 weeks not smoking!
