Oh my gosh, I don't know what to write about, lol. It's too quiet in here I can't think straight. NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jim has taken Rebecca to a pet store called World Wide Aquarium. I told him don't come home with any furry, slimey, 2 legged 4 legged or 8 legged critters. He wants to buy her a pet, it had better be a stuffed non eatting non pooping pet. I am not an animal person. There are certain ones I do like my cat Casper who is in kitty heaven, I really miss him, and my cousin's little dog, who is absolutely lovable and adorable. I have never seen a more well behaved dog in my life until my cousins dog came about. Anyways, since the house is quiet, I thought I'd pop in for a bit and make an entry. I enclosed the pics finally of the roosters I have in my kitchen. Some were given to me by my daughter Emma, some by a friend and some I found at thrift stores. My dream now is to find rooster printed dinnerware and placemats, and a rooster cookie jar, can't forget that one, lol. Rebecca said I need it.
Well, I got 16 days now smoke free, wooooohooooooo. Can I do this? YES, I CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can breathe so much better, I can smell better, and my house doesn't stink. I have been washing and scrubbing everything to get the smell out. Today I am gonna hand wash my kitchen curtains to rid them of cigarette odor, and yes they are also rooster print, lol.
I had my lunch already, wheat club roll, fried egg, half slice cheese and 2 slices of tomato on it, yummy. I didn't eat breakfast, cause I didn't get up til after 10:am. By the way I had my hot tea last night using the sweetener called Splenda, and wow no after taste or anything. It is good. I will now use that all the time. Thanks Angie for letting me know about it. Tomorrow is weigh in day, yikes. I think I have lost a pound or two, I can feel it in stomach. Hope the scale likes me tomorrow, lol. Since it is so cold outside and I can't go for a walk, I have been taking 2 days a week standing in place lifting my legs like I am marching and doing this for 10 minutes. 10 minutes is all I can do cause I start hurting in legs and back, and when I have pain neck stiffens and I feel like I am choking. I hate that feeling. It is so uncomfortable.
My friend Sarah is coming again for a visit. In 2 weeks I will go pick her up on a friday and she will stay with me until monday. I love it when she's here. She keeps rebecca occupied while I can get things done. We're gonna take her out to dinner that sunday. I haven't told her yet, I'll keep it a surprise. And I know my sister Lucy will read this, so Lou don't you dare tell her! Sarah is also Lucy's friend. The 3 of us went to bingo together, or Lucy and I would visit Sarah at her home for coffee. We had some really good times together, I miss those days. So since my sister moved to virginia, I get Sarah all to myself, hahahaha sis. I know she'd smack me right now if she could, lol.
Well it's superbowl day. My EAGLES didn't get in, but oh well. I can sit here and cheer the BEARS on at least. Our friend Joe will be heading to Florida tomorrow for a week. The company he works for opened a new shop in Tampa, so he is going there to help get it set up. While we're here freezing he'll be nice and warm, the BUM, lol.

Yes Rebecca came home with a pet. A stuffed one, lol A turtle. Well gonna go now. I will be back later. Hope you all have a great day.
