Today, a wonderful day!

Posted by Christine13 Nov 25, 2016

I am having a wonderful day today.  Have urges to smoke but not going to happen.  I went out and did groceries, gotta put them away.  Hubby was well enough to take me out for dinner last night.  We went to our favourite restaurant and because we have been regulars over the years they gave us a free meal and me a bottle of my favourite wine.  It was amazing and touched me to tears.  Going to decorate the tree this afternoon and it's so mild weather so I will also go out for a walk.  It's been a hectic week for me, and I may even have time to read the newspaper this afternoon.  Finally got a good sleep last night too.  Hubby even managed to drive himself to get his pump disconnected for the weekend and I slept in until a glorius 8:00, instead of getting up at 6:00 a.m.  Quite often I have blogged when things here were so bad, so I wanted to beat a craving and blog about a good day instead.  ok, off to put groceries away.  Crave is gone!!  Thanks for letting me share!!

Early Christmas Dinner

Posted by Christine13 Nov 20, 2016

Hello all.  Just wanted to say it's my Mom's early Christmas Dinner tonight.  They like to go south to Texas for the winter, so our family and extended family all get together for a traditional Christmas dinner.  We rent a hall, and my two sisters and I cook the dinner at home and bring it there.  We are about 30 - 35 people.  It's going to be so nice with me not smoking for this family dinner.  I have about 15 lbs. of potatoes to peel and mash and about four boxes of soft drinks to bring, as well as the tea and coffee etc.  I am praying my hubby Brian will be able to come with me.  I won't let his illness or not coming be a reason to smoke.  Anyway I'm excited to be getting together with family today. Hope all goes well for us tonight and that there are no tensions.  My brother and his family arrived here early Saturday morning from Iowa and drove through a snow storm to get here.  I hope everyone here at EX has an EXtra special Sunday, like I will!!

Anxiety relieved!

Posted by Christine13 Nov 15, 2016

Finally yesterday and today my anxiety has been relieved, last week was hell, because I was so worried about loosing hubby.  Finally on Sunday he was feeling better, and yesterday he had his pump connected for chelation therapy.  (It dispenses a strong medication to reduce the iron overload in his system from all the transfusions.  He went by himself yesterday and I had about 5 hours to myself which was bliss!  Last night he was even well enough to go out to dinner!

Now, I have to watch him for side affects from the medicine.  It's really potent medication, and could affect his vision and there are a whole host of other nasty ones.

I did go and see my therapist today, and talking to him helped too.  My quit is going well today.  I feel happy and positive and I dressed up nicely today in a new outfit I was waiting to wear, and it feels like such a treat!

I am so greatful for my EX family and letting me blog about this.  

As Terrie says I won' t quit on my Quit!!

Not Smoking today.-1

Posted by Christine13 Nov 9, 2016

Somehow I made it through the day smokefree today.  Used walking as my stress reliever and it really helped.

I walk and pray to myself and by the time I get home, I am feeling better!

Today was almost crave free!!  Tomorrow morning I take hubs for a much needed blood transfusion again.

He is so sick this time he can hardly walk.  I will compensate and get him a wheelchair at the hospital this morning to get him to the oncology clinic.

I am doing this, one day, one minute at a time today!  I am hoping and praying the blood transfusion works this time around.

Some good news here, my daughter was here for a visit the other day and it was really so nice!

Enjoy your Wednesday everyone!!
