Yes, on weekdays I get up early as I need to get the kids off to school. So once they have left (by 7:00am Eastern time), I get on the 'puter and start going through the threads. It's quiet here during that time, so it's easier for me to do it then. On weekends, I sleep in and don't get on here until much later than normal. I'm glad that your husband is doing okay at the moment and will keep my toes, fingers and eyes crossed and say some prayers that the test in May comes out okay for him. Make sure to let us know what the results are; remember that we care about you and Toby. Thanks for letting us know how Toby is doing.
I LOVE salsa and chips, time for me to earn them - isn't it. LOL I make a mean salsa (4 alarm salsa - lol) and need to make some soon, haven't made any in awhile. And ewwww, anal leakage - that's gross. I certainly won't be eating any diet chips - lol.
You most certainly deserve a chip for going to the family event. I hope it goes well for you and remember that you are NOT inadequate in any way. Having nothing in common with your family doesn't mean anything about being inadequate and I bet there is something you have in common with at least one person - maybe a hobby, maybe something you do at work, etc.
That's a great idea about journaling and looking at the positive affirmations every day, great way to start each day. I think I will also start do the same thing.
I think you deserve a big pile of chips for quitting smoking - that is a HUGE accomplishment and I'm in your corner cheering you on. Here's to a smoke-free life; you'll be so happy that you did this.
