Yesterday was a long day. Matthew came over at 10am and we were off for the day. First we started at Costco. I had to pick up my new glasses. I love them, they are so lightweight I don’t even notice that I have them on. It’s nice to get rid of the blurry vision…lol. After Costco we stopped off at Rogers and rented 3 movies(I’ll do a review later) Then it was off to Mom and Dad’s for lunch and a visit. She made her version of Burritos that Matthew gobbled up. I had a kind of taco salad. Since I can’t eat any of the things I am allergic to for the next 3 months. We chatted with dad for bit and he then went to have a nap. The 3 of us sat down and talked about all sorts of stuff. Then Mom showed me the collection of bra’s she brought back from California. She must have at least 3 dozen! All us girls will be getting together very soon for a bra party. There are so many pretty ones I want them all! LOL
Anyways, we were on the road again. This time it was Save-on foods. Matthew needed food so I took him shopping. He is wasting away. Once we were done there we headed back to my place. I finished off his laundry and we watched the movies. Gregg got home and we bbq’d some chicken and had a nice dinner together. After that it was time for Matt to head back home. He had to work this morning. Also he left his computer here to see if Gregg can fix it. So he isn’t able to do any blogging right now.
After that long day I was tired. The whole day for me was that I wanted to be with Matt and just have a good time and enjoy the day, which we did, but…I really hate to complain…I want, no I wish and hope that he can stop smoking. I was a mess by the time he left. My allergies had acted up. My throat was hurting, my eyes were red, my nose was running and I was getting grumpy. I know its not easy to quit smoking, trust me I know. I smoked for 22 years. I tried so many times to quit but I never was ready. In all those years the only time that I stopped was as soon as I found out I was pregnant and both times I stopped instantly. I always started up again after a couple months once the boys were born. I think it was because the people around me(friends) all smoked. Now I know Matt can’t go getting knocked up…LOL and he better not get anyone prego!
He needs to find a way to stop. I think that cold turkey is the only way. He has tried pills from the doctor and all the different patches out there and they just don’t work for him. I know they didn’t do it for me either. Cold turkey, it’s going to be his only choice. That means staying away from smokers for the first few months. Changing habits, washing everything that stinks and getting rid of things that are so soaked in smoke that all the washing won’t even get it clean.
(Like leather jackets) It’s not just the smell that is a problem, its also an inconveniences these days. Every where you go now you can’t smoke. Pretty soon you won’t even be able to smoke out on the street. Only in your own home and even that can cause problems when you live in a condo building(neighbors under us).
Well I guess what I am trying to say is…smoking is….annoying, money wasting, unattractive, dirty and disgusting. I could probably find more words to describe it but I’m too lazy to search for them. All I know is that since I quit over 5 years ago I can’t handle the smell anymore. When Matthew visits he Stinks, but I still love him and will hug him even if it means I have to suffer with a runny nose for that day. Same goes for when Colby visits. He smells like smoke and wet dog…LOL. I wash all his clothes and make him shower when he arrives. I hug him and I love him. My boys are stinky ones but they are all mine.
