Weekend with old classmates

So this past weekend myself & some ladies from high school all got together for some fun in Dearborn.  What started off as a couple drinks with the ladies turned into a drunken sweaty mess!  We had snacks & beverages at Bailey's then mozeyd over to The Well & then we headed down to New Place to see one of the gals brothers bands.  The next thing I know I'm drunk, sweaty, and at a friends house dressing up my beer in a little outfit.  Well, it was a beer cozy but still it was a little jersey & super cute :)  Yesterday morning was not as much fun as Saturday night was though...boo to that!  After viewing updates on Facebook I think everyone else was feeling our age yesterday too.  I woke up about 10 & then went back to bed until about 11 & then at noon I took a nap until 2 & after that I still felt like crap.  There was a major storm heading toward Dearborn so I opted to make a run for it & get home to Farmington & of course stopped at McDonald's on the way.  After some coffee, the fast food, a soda, something else, and another nap I finally felt normal at about 5 PM & I took the opportunity to clean my kitchen & unpack from Chicago the weekend before.  All in all the day wasn't a total wash but it was totally worth it to see all of my old peeps!  Way to go class of 95 for keeping the spirit alive :)

Wisdom from my gyno

So I'm at the Dr. yesterday & she asks me if I'm still smoking & I told her I had quit 7 weeks & 1 day prior & she was very excited.  She said it was great for my health and what not but seemed more excited over the fact that I would now be saving money, she asked that I take a $5 bill out of my wallet every other day & put it in a jar.  She asked what I have been using my extra money for & I told her I just got back from vacation & that I bought a couple purses as well.  She said "purses are a waste of money, you save for a while & buy a really good purse like a Louis Vuitton, well one large & one small, & a quality expensive purse is always in fashion & will last you for many years to come.  You then keep saving your money & retire early because your time is worth more than a bunch of purses."  She said "trust me, you young kids don't see the big picture & you will be 50 before you know it & would probably rather retire than have a new purse".

I would like to take this wisdom to heart but I know myself & I always spend money on stuff I don't need so now I think I will really think about purchases before I make them & see if I can't maybe at least stash away an extra 15-20 bucks a week.  The biggest issue with putting a $5 in a jar every couple days is that I only use debit & I can't very well swipe my card on a piggy bank.  The thing that is most key of course is having a bank that is opaque...if you can see all of those $5's in there they won't last!!  Happy saving kids & here's to an early retirement!!

Not smoking update

Ok people, it has now been 5 weeks & 4 days without cigarettes which apparently equals 396 cigarettes that I haven't smoked...how gross is that?  Anyway, the first 2 weeks were rough but now I'd say that only about once a day do I actually want to smoke and that is after dinner.  The funny thing about that is that I take my Chantix after dinner so instead of smoking I just pop a pill instead.  Now, I was taking my Chantix twice a day as prescribed but the nausea got so bad I actually had to go home one day & ended up getting sick & what's the point in taking something if I'm just going to throw it up every time?  There is no point!  I decided to cut it back to just one pill a day after dinner & while I feel a bit funny after I take it I certainly wouldn't call it nauseous so that's a huge plus.  I would definitely suggest to anyone who is on this drug to cut back to one a day if the side effects are becoming unbearable...it's better than just taking yourself off of it completely like I did last time, obviously that didn't work because I started smoking again!  The other side effects that I had that have either disappeared or minimized were not sleeping through the night, having weird ass dreams & getting up to pee in the middle of the night.  I still have some weird dreams but not as weird as before & ever since I stopped taking it twice a day I haven't once gotten up to pee or just woken up in general before my alarm!

So can I just say how nice it is to go out & there not be people smoking in front of me...OMG that is like the biggest hurdle to jump when you are quitting smoking & now I'm totally fine.  Last weekend at the garage sale there were people smoking around me quite a bit & at first it made me want one, probably because I was drinking coffee but after that first round I was all set.  Now like I said it's really nice not having people smoking in bars & restaurants but it is pretty annoying now to be walking into a place & there are people all outside the door smoking...outside smells like cigarettes now & it stinks!  I do not judge smokers, it's a choice so if you want to smoke em go for it I just don't care for the smell of a smoker...not like I ever did but now I really don't because I really notice it.  It's funny to see so many people out & about now though so not smoking inside is getting more people outside which I think could be good for the community!

Rue McClanahan dies at age 76

Rue McClanahan passed away from a major stroke at 1 am today, in the past she also battled Cancer & had heart bypass surgery last year.  Rue is best known for her role on The Golden Girls as the sex crazed man eating southern belle from Atlanta, Blanche Devereaux.  I don't know about you guys but The Golden Girls has been a huge part of my life since the show first aired & losing these women is such a tragedy.  Betty White is now the last Golden Girl left standing since we lost Bea Arthur just over a year ago and Estelle Getty just over 2 years ago.  As my friend Adam said & I totally agree Blanche was the original Samantha Jones & as much as I love me some Samantha she could never compare to Blanche!!  Rue will definitely be missed and my heart goes out to her family & friends & especially to Betty White.  Long live The Golden Girls & long live Blanche Devereaux!!
