I'm feeling a little bit better every day.  I know I will feel better once the staples are removed.  They come out on Tuesday, then count down is on. 

Before my surgery I was a pack a day smoker.  Because of the surgery I couldn't smoke and I haven't.  It has been 9 days.  I'm doing ok with the withdrawals.  When I get stressed and need the comfort of smoking is the hardest part.  And of course there is the habit part which is also difficult.  When we built the house 17 years we came up with a rule that there would be no smoking in the house.  So every time I wanted a smoke I would go outside or in the garage.  So the complete mindless act of lighting up isn't there.  But the pull to go out to the garage to have a smoke is hard.  Stressful times I want to smoke really bad...  but I haven't.  I was really surprised everyone said that I would smell the old stale smoke on my clothes, jacket and vehicle, but I don't.  Is it too soon??  I haven't tasted the difference in food either, everyone said that food will taste better... it hasn't.   I wanted to quit, first the attitude of people when you light up was getting harder and harder to deal with.  Plus come July the state of Wisconsin will be smoke free in all public buildings.  I wanted to be smoke free myself by then.  It's looking I will be!!   It's exciting and to keep the excitement alive I have decided to buy something I wouldn't normally get myself.  I will be saving a lot of money by not smoking and I feel I deserve something.  So what??  I was thinking about a smart phone so I could get data/internet service while I'm at rummage sales.  I really don't know much about them.  Will I be able to find prices from ebay via the smartphone???  Does this work well??  I also want to keep lists and organize using this phone.  Will a Blackberry work for what I want to use it for???  My contract with Verizon is up in August, however I will be switching cellphone companies at that time.  I think I will be going with US Cellular.  First they have the best prices on cellphone serve in the area and second so many people I know are moving from Verizon to US Cellular.  I still thinking about what would be best..  if you have any input let me know.   More posts will be coming this week....
