Well, I have been home since about 1:30 mst. It's 6:30 mst. As I predicted ,the time I was away on the ski weekend was pretty easy. I was with 9 people; all Christians, all non-smokers. We spent the weekend skiing, hot-tubbing, playing games, cooking meals and having fun....except for my friend who invited me to come who spent the entire weekend holed up in her room sick. Major bummer.
I didn't sleep well. It was either the fact that I had to sleep on a couch in a sleeping bag, or other factors. I don't know. I am very tired.
Right now, I am hot, then cold, then hot, then cold. I'm either catching what my friend had, or it is other factors.
I am trying to get motivated to school work; instead, I am a couch potato catching up on a weekend's worth of DVR'd TV shows.
I should be doing laundry; but again.....the TV.
I listened to my daughters' high school musical CD all the way home; radio doesn't come in way up there. I kept myself distracted by singing all the songs. Yes, I know all the HSM songs....by heart.
I just realized I am gritting my teeth quite a bit. It's annoying.
I got some spearmint gum to keep my mouth busy, but it's too minty and it is giving me heart burn. Or else I'm catching my friends' illness.
I woke up a lot the past two nights. How annoying when I could've been sleeping well since I had no kids to wake me up. So, when I woke up, I ate. Maybe I'll need to spend the money I am not spending on cigarettes for a gym membership if over-eating is going to become an issue.
I purchased myself some Neutrogena anti-wrinkle stuff for my skin. I'm sure smoking has contributed to some of my around the eyes and mouth wrinkles, so maybe I can reverse the aging by non-smoking and skin rejuvination.
I'm not doing as bad as I thought I would. The real test will come when normal life resumes and I have the daily stressors to contend with. But by tomorrow morning at about 10:30, I will have gotten through my first 36 hours. One day at a time, right?
