103 Days

Today marks 103 days that I have been a non-smoker. Yay Me!! The first few days after I quit I remember thinking that 100 days seemed so far away, but I flew right past 100 days without evening realizing it. I actually had to sit down and count the days since I have lost count. I always knew I would have this whole smoking thing beat when I lost track of how many days I had not smoked. My next goal is 6 months because that is when MJ said she would buy me dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant. :)

Last night I feel asleep on the couch at 8pm and only woke up because S called me at 10pm to say goodnight. Last Friday night I went to bed late and then was wide awake at 5:30am (I think I was excited about seeing S) and then of course I got very little sleep Saturday night, so I am wondering if that is why I am so tired lately. Or maybe it's the weather. It seems to be so much work to get dressed and bundled up to walk Sophie in the cold weather. This morning when I walked Sophie it was 7 degrees and by the time we got back to our apartment I couldn't feel my legs. I am taking 1/2 day on Friday and then taking Monday off so I am hoping I will get caught up on my sleep; or maybe not. :)

I am thinking of making my blog private again. I know for sure that when I eventually move closer to S I will be making this blog private because I have put a lot of stuff out there and living in a small town is so different then a major city where you can kind of disappear into the crowd. I will keep you guys updated on that.

Tonight I am having dinner with one of my really good friends. I have not seen her in ages, so it will be good catching up with her. As excited as I am to move closer to S, I know it's going to be a very emotional move as well. It's going to be so hard leaving the only place I have ever lived and of course it's going to be hard leaving all of my friends.

S and I were saying on Saturday how amazing it is that things are just falling into place for us to be together. Honestly....I couldn't have planned it better myself. (and I am a total planner) I have a feeling that this spring is going to be filled with lots of changes and really I can't wait.

"....how amazing it is that things are just falling into place for us to be together."

That is reflective of how things happened for me after I arrived here in NM. It was pretty much breath-taking at times. When it is right, it is just right.

Happiness for you both!

Yay for 100 days! 103, that is.

I meant "so," not "to."

I can't leave a mistake alone. :)

I love that fence... it was so cold here we brought the cats in last night and will again tonight. They can go in Stacy's shop but I just feel better having them inside when the temp dips below freezing.

AND congratulations lady. You deserve it!
