Go me, it's my birfday. Just kidding about the birfday part - but yes...Go me!!
65 days and counting. My mind still plays tricks on me every once in a while. For a second I will have a moment "Self, after you eat this meal - you need to smoke" or "Self, you need to calm down and go smoke" NO NO NO as Amy Winehouse would say.. that's another post.
I have recommended the Chantix to everyone I have heard complain about their own smoking. Most people blow me off, but if they only knew how effective this drug is, then maybe they would listen. But then again, maybe they are not all that serious about quitting to begin with.

With gas averaging $4.07 a gallon for regular - in my area, I decided to experiment. Normal driving for me is 5-10 mph OVER the limit - except in Town. Lead foot.... anyways.....I live in the land of a fairly new grocery getter with a 12 gallon gas tank.
This was the experiment:
When tank on empty - fill with $50.00 which will get me just over 3/4 tank.
For 1 week - drive the POSTED speed limit, and see how many days I can go without having to fill up. Normal driving - no extra trips, just to Daycare, work, grocery store and home again.
Week 2 - drive the speed limit I want, normal driving again, daycare, work, grocery store and home again.
Week 1 - I drove 7 days on $50.00. By the 7th day, my gas light was getting ready to come on - but I had made it.
Week 2 - I drove 5 days on $50.00.
Let's just say - the grocery getter will be obeying the speed limit.
EDITED TO ADD******* This was an "informal" experiment

Hi everyone - say Hello to Peaches, my doggy. We got her 3 years ago. She is a mixed Lab and something else. Great dog, loveable, can do tricks and very much HOUSE TRAINED.
A local family in Claymont, DE just had their home condemned and their children taken away from them because of filth. The homeowners originally called the police to report a peeping tom, but got themselves in trouble.
The state claims there was trash, insects and dog feces everywhere. The couples children were laying on the sofa surrounded by trash when the Police entered the home.
The couple maintains their story of them having financial hard times and that's why the house was so filthy.
WOW, double WOW.
Please explain to me how someone can live with dog shit everywhere? Can not for the life of me wrap my head around it. How hard is it to take the trash out? Wash some dishes maybe? Pick up the dog shit with a paper towel and mop the floor? Wash the toilet bowl out? No neat freak required, just some basic up bringing.
The Dept. of Social Services will not remove a child from a messy home. They removed all their kids and turned them over to a family member. The home had to be filthy. The mother claims the dog shit was not from her dog, but yet they had lived there for years?!?!?!?! Oh, it was there when you moved in all that time ago and you have NEVER cleaned the effing floors?
They deserve to lose their kids in this situation. Just think of all the bacteria in that home. The dog has obviously been shitting and pissing all over the house for years, the kids are walking barefoot through it, parents probably never made them bathe, so feces is all over the bottom of their feet, then in the bed when they lay down, then on the sofa when they sit there, under their fingernails when they itch their feet, then in their mouths...NASTY. I can cope with a lot of things and understand it's hard to be Mrs. Cleaver or Martha Stewart, but dog shit is one thing that is unacceptable. PERIOD.
If Peaches shit or pissed in my house, lets just say it is not something you can hide or walk around, you need a steam cleaner - IMMEDIATELY. Simple training fixes those issues.
Sorry for using dog shit repetitively, but it irks me BAD.
