At LAST!!!

Oh, I'm glad the week is over. I can't even begin to tell you how much I dread going to work these days. It's just such a stressful, unpleasant place to be, the only saving grace being the people I work with. Thank God for them, because despite all the cuts, the changes, the rumours, the stress and the complete moronessence (yeah, I know it's not a word, but you get the drift, yeah?), we still find ways to laugh and enjoy each other's company.

Michael and I went grocery shopping after work, as is the norm for every second Friday. Now that's really a chore I hate. I love to shop, but not for groceries. But I did luck into a couple of decent sales. Toilet paper at half price. Bought some even though we didn't need it because one ALWAYS needs TP and it doesn't go bad. *LOL* I also picked up a couple of steaks for a really, really good price. Nice thick steaks too. YUM!! Oh! And Swedish Berries... the things that are taking the place of cigarettes. They were on sale too.

And about the cigs... Well, I'm not doing too bad, I have to say. The first week was easy-peasy. I wasn't at work, I could get up and go for a walk if needs be... or nap. Then I went back to work this week. *RME* I caved. It was either light a cigarette or kill someone. So I made a refined gameplan. I smoke at work. That's 4 smokes. At home, I don't smoke in the house except for one last cigarette before turning out the lights, smoked while I read in bed. That's 3 more cigarettes. So, I'm smoking around 7 or 8 cigs a day. Which is quite the change from near on 30 a day. By the end of the summer, things should have calmed down some at the office and things should be a little less stressful so I'll revisit the plan and hopefully be able to cut the things out completely. So, on the one hand, I'm a little disappointed in myself, but on the other, I'm proud of myself that I didn't just can the whole idea and go back to smoking more than a pack a day.

A little while ago, I decided that I needed to create an LJ for my Trixie Belden fanfic (Hence the usage of the Bob-White icon). I have it up on my website, but at some point I'm not going to want to lay out the money for something I don't update anymore, so I thought an LJ would be a decent idea. So, if you're curious, it's at [livejournal.com profile] trixfic. On the profile page I listed and linked all the chapters and stories for easier navigation. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but I sure had fun writing it!

So now it's into the kitchen to make a pot of coffee and then just chill for a bit.

I'm real glad it's the weekend!
