Kicking My Addictions

So my lovely readers... Today is day 4.5 of no smoking or drinking any soda.

At first, i was not very happy. But as of today i genuinely feel good and accomplished.

If any of you know me personally you know that i LOVE drinking coke. I am addicted to caffeine and have pretty much sworn that it is impossible for me to quit drinking it.

You also know that i smoke when bored.... which happens to be most of my day lol and that i have tried to quit several times now.

Well, this time i am serious. I dont feel so weak and i need to get a grasp on a healthier me. I have replaced my 4-5 cans of coke with water or iced tea and have just fought off my urges to go buy cigarrettes on my own (does help when you are broke lol)

I am hoping that these little changes will help me in the long term goal to be healthier overall.. I want to be a good role model for my girls. I want them to live healthy lives that dont revolve around addictions that are bad for you mentally and physically. And i would most like to be more confident that i will be here for them always.. Cutting out cigarrettes is a big help with that. At least it gives me a little peace of mind in knowing that i am not making my own self sick.

Hurricane Isaac.. EEEEK!

So beautiful and scary at the same time.
Ok.. so i dont know how many of you are actually aware but i am a California girl, We dont do hurricanes. We do earthquakes haha so this little doozy we have going on is giving me a dang panic attack.

I am not sure if it is serious or not, i keep getting mixed reviews from all of the locals.
Today at work someone actually told one of our associates that she needed to be careful because people will start to loot and rape after the hurricane lol -way to scare her.

I have gotten everything ready for all situations.. be it evacuation or riding it out. It is the waiting to see what is going to happen that is killing me.
I dont like the waitning game.
I like plans and knowing exactly what the plan of action is.
I feel so out of mother nature's loop right now tee hee.

THese past few days have been crazy... Friday the base ran out of gasoline. And not just the 87 either.... They ran out of everything! Good luck trying to find any store in the area that actually has water in stock. And if you do they are charging an arm and a leg for it. Everywhere is packed with people trying to get some last minute essentials so if you are going to just buy groceries or a pack of batteries good luck to you lol

 If any of you need some help with anything feel free to ask and i will do my absolute best to help whoever or wherever i can..

Good Stuff is Happening

Hey all!
Well i have lots to share, I have had an eventful month so far and its only 9 days in haha.

First let me share that my husband has made SSgt this year! I am so proud of him!
Second, I got my job back at Kohl's. I am very excited about that.
Third, and most importantly to me... i finally did register for school. And decided to go full time.

I am going to be so busy.. But i think itll be worth it. Helping my husband out a little with the financial part of everything. And helping advance myself into the field of work i want to be in.

I am so excited with everything that is going on! And to top it all off my momma will be here this Sunday to visit for a couple weeks. I havent seen her in about two years.. I am so overjoyed.
