Won't Make the News

Today is smoke-free day 353, and I'm just content.

I have no real complaints in general that come to mind without digging, I have no real desire to smoke today unless I really stop to think about it, and I am glad that the hardest part of that battle is already somewhere behind me. I miss Tom during this "apartness" dearly, always, but we are adapting to what's temporary and keeping our eye on the prize, a day at a time like most things in my life. The cats are fat and happy, while I've lost over 10 pounds since March (this was going to be a very long post about that, but I hated both versions of it I wrote, and you would have, too, so? it's not, and you're welcome).

This is probably the most boring post you could ever read, and it's the kind of just plain nothing going on that won't make the news, but I'm OK with that. Perfect with that, actually. As long as I don't go looking for trouble, this day could end up pretty all right. And some days just that is just enough.


  1. Sometimes "boring" or "not newsy" is awesome!

  2. I'm so glad that you still are quit Maggie and I'm glad you are getting through the apartness with some semblance of your sanity.
    I think it's amazing that you have lost 10 pounds and although I know you've said you want to loose more (yeah you wanna get in some sexy bikini for Tom), is there or was there a deadline on that?
    Hows the weather in your part of the country?

  3. Agreed, Rebecca!

    Thanks, MamaFlo! I think I have about another 10 pounds or so to go, but I'm not sure. Definitely another 5 pounds, and then I'll see how I look and feel. No deadline at all. This is a lifestyle change that comes with one free day and common sense flexibility (like when on vacation) built in. The only difference will be that I'll set my daily calorie goals for maintenance instead of loss. Heck, maybe I should have posted one of my long posts about all that :) It's been in the 50's and 60's here - in June. Still hot there?

  4. Hey there Maggie...
    I wish I could say I have lost ten pounds! I am just dealing with the end of the year stuff. Out of curosity, what is the big picture for you and Tom? I know I'm being nosy for asking but I was wondering if you and Tom are trying to move to a cheaper state? I heard Oregon is pretty cheap compared to Cali but I'm willing to bet Tulsa is much cheaper to live. I also heard jobs are harder to get in Oregon. I was just wondering what "the prize" at the end was.

  5. congrats on the weight loss...i think i found that weight you lost ;-)

  6. Mz Diva, the prize is being under one happy roof again, and this will make it that much better when we get to that point :)

    Janet, it does seem to go around like that... I'm glad to be rid of it, though!
