PostSubject: Mandie's Thoughts.   Thu Oct 20, 2011 3:57 pm

Others have a thread so I thought Id make my own as well.

Here is a random fact:

I quit smoking cigarettes on March 15th this year. Quit cold turkey. Just put them down one day and didn't pick them back up. I did this at one other point in my life when I was 21. I quit for four years at that point in time. This time, I want to quit for good. Not just four years, but forever. I saw a video recently and a dude was smoking a cigarette. It didnt even make me want one. When I was at Best Buy recently, there was a dude outside smoking, didn't bother me then either. HOWEVER having said that, there are times that I still crave one. Even 7 months after quitting. I am so proud of myself even if no one else is. Non Smokers will never know how difficult it is for a smoker to put them down and never pick them back up again. I think I deserve a gold star.

Mandie I am so proud of you!! I can't even imagine how hard that was! My mom and dad are 52 and 54 and both been smoking since about 15. They've tried to quit and couldn't. I worry about their health all the time.

I had to switch to a brand of cigarette that I did not like. Because I hated them, I smoked less of them. After a year of smoking cigarettes I hated, I was able to say fuck it and not want them anymore. I had to trick my brain.

it did get to the point where i was only having 2 or three a day. Id light one, smoke about half and put it out. then i might puff on it a bit later. eventually i didnt want them at all. it really helped that i was smoking something i didnt like. lol

yeah they don't care anymore. Sad

i am so proud of you though!!

my boyfriend's little brother got caught with alcohol, cigarettes, weed, and something else (salvia or something, whatever that is), last month. apparently, he's been doing all that cuz he was depressed cuz this chick he liked didn't like him and his best friend started dating her. i hope he will be okay. they had him go to counseling but he's lost soo much weight and not eating.

awwww I hope he will be alright too Niki. Let me know if there is ever anything I can do for ya.













Normally I am asleep at this time, ya know, cause I sleep all day. lol But this morning, UGH. A fucking woodpecker... woke me up. Making all kinds of noise in the tree next to my window. I came out into the living room at 9:30 to see what the noise was and saw all my cats in the window checking out the woodpecker. It had some red color on him. Cute little fella but I sure did want to throw a rock at it. I didn't of course, and after an hour or so of listening to it, it finally let me go back to sleep. Only to be awoken at 11:20 by a phone call. I had to get up and clean the living room cause I had some company coming. After my company left, I called Boyd to tell him that my friend had come and gone and when on the phone, I banged my elbow hard on the bar in the living room. My whole arm hurts. Now its almost 1:30 and all the cats are awake and running around, there is no point in trying to go back to sleep. They wouldnt let me if I tried. So, I have to sit here for the next 3 hours just sittin here, waiting for Boyd to come home when I should (could?) be sleeping.

It's these two punks (especially the one that is sleeping in this pic) that keep me awake. aka the bopsie twins, tweedle dee and tweedle dumb, or the double mint twins. The little one, he is almost 10 months, he is a total asshole. At least they don't meow at the bedroom door at 4am and 5am anymore before Boyd has to get up at 6:40 to go to work. They were waking us up to the point that I would just get up and sit in the living room with them so they wouldnt make noise and keep Boyd awake when he needs his sleep. They didnt do that at all this week.

My sweet little Charlie is never a problem.

I wanted to go to the state fair. It's just a few minutes down the freeway. I haven't been in years. I looked online today, cheapest tickets I could find were 14.50 a piece and you had to go to a grocery store to get them at that price. At the gate, they are 16 bucks a piece. Well that's all fine and dandy but then, just to park there, it's 15 bucks per space. I did read that you could get a DART combo ticket for 17, meaning, I'd have to ride the stupid DART bus. Since there are no buses in my city, I'd have to travel to ANOTHER city, park at a bus station and ride from there. It's just not worth the hassle. The fair closes tomorrow. So I guess I will look into it again next year. I think I did hear that my city will finally get a bus system. My city has always voted no to the buses. We recently just got beer and wine in our grocery stores and gas stations. One day not too long ago I walked into my local walmart neighborhood market (where i do all my grocery shopping) and there was freaking beer on the shelf for the first time! Now I don't have to travel to the neighboring city to buy beer. Still have to travel quite a ways for liquor.

Walmarts here have always sold beer if it's a city that has passed an ordinance allowing them to. Any walmart in the city of Dallas sells. I live in Dallas county. Not all cities in the county can sell. It's up to each city here. I assumed it was that way everywhere?

none of the supermarkets where i live sell beer or any alcohol. neither walmart, stop and shop or shaws. they only sell liquor here in stores made specifically for liquor. i had no idea some parts of the country had it in walmart lol. in fact, a lot of the liquor stores in my home town on cape cod are actually closed sunday.

Okay, I havent been online really since Sat night so, now that I have browsed OP, it's time to go to FB and play some FARMTOWN. Yeehaw. In Farmtown land, I have over 500,000,000 to spend. I even turned one of my farms into an ISLAND, and it's surrounded by water. So cute.

I tried Farmville as well as a few other FB games and just could not for the life of me get into them. Don't like being signed onto FB that much anymore, just go on and check things out for a few min every day

Every day, time passes. Every night, I wish I could just pause it for a while. Im not ready to go to sleep. Boyd isn't either. When the night comes we aren't ever tired.

Here it is, 2:30 am in the morning and Im sittin here, playin on the lap top and Boyd is playing on twitter with his comp. Not tired, lookin around my living room, realizing how small it is. lol I've crammed my whole life into this little apartment. My lease is up on Jan 31st. I dont know if I am moving, if Im staying, or what yet. There are things about the apartment I like and there are things that I hate. If I move I'll just be moving to another, small apartment, because the BIG apartments (the ones that I can afford) are not in good neighborhoods. Id rather take a small apartment somewhere safe rather than a big huge apartment in a bad neighborhood. Moving is a hassle. Boyd hates it more than I do. I've moved so many times now that I dont mind it. I actually enjoy setting up a new place. I have found the longer I live in one place, the more I begin to feel stuck. At least moving around, makes me feel like Im doing something, going somewhere.
