I am sitting here thinking of all the things I have to add to my shopping list for Monday. By the time I feel like actually working on the dang thing, I will have forgotten most of them.

If anyone has 10 cents worth of energy, I will take it. The Chantix is beginning to work. I light up a cigarette, take one puff and put it right out. Have absolutely no desire to finish smoking it.

I am smoking less and less. The good part is that even though I don't feel like smoking, when Spike is here and he lights up, I still don't reach for one myself. He is no longer a trigger for me. Hopefully, by the end of next week, I will be going 24 hours without. Then I will go for the days without.

I just placed an order for a microwave. My current one stopped working. Not good, as I use it a couple times/day to reheat things.

The little guy is stable and will be kept in hospital for a few days for observation. I am not exactly sure what happened, but they relieved some pressure around the eye and there have been no more convulsions.

Now his sister, who didn't end up coming here, is throwing up all over so it is the flu as well.

Thanks everyone for the prayers and thoughts and just listening to me.

I am feeling much better today. My throat is no longer sore, I had one coughing spell in the night only and I am not nauseated. I will lay low one more day, only taking Violet to the vet for her annual shots and I should be good to go.

So all is looking so much more positive.

The first week I took Chantix I thought it was not working because my smoking actually increased, then I realized it was because I was not getting the same lift from the nicotine. Hang in there and keep in touch with the daily calls that they offer. I was able to stop taking it after the first month instead of the normal three months and have not smoked in several years.

It will help if you can find some distraction for the first few days, knit a hundred mittens or lick a thousand envelopes for your church, anything to keep busy!

Keep us posted on your progress and good luck!

I've been watching DA all afternoon.
One episode left. The big finale until next year this time.
Fortunately Vikings is starting back up soon.
