I Need Some Funny

Yesterday did not get any better from the morning. I was in tears before I went to sleep. Not just tears, sobbing. The I want to talk to my mom kind of sobbing that is usually only reserved for being really sick. It was ridiculous. None of my bad day is really blog worthy. In fact it would sound downright silly if I wrote it. Trust me. But I'm stand by my firm belief that sleep makes any problem better. Perhaps world leaders should try this tactic. Hmmm...



Anyway, after some sleep I felt much better. Not a good hair day but I can't really have it all on a Tuesday. At least I had water this morning. Most of you know that I've recently quit my dirty little habit of cigarettes. Today is day 10 of being completely smoke free. I'm thrilled with how this is going but yesterday proved to be one of my tough moments. I think quitting smoking is like breaking up with a really awful boyfriend. You want to break up and you manage to do it. But it can haunt you in some of the strangest ways. You think that life will never be the same without it and it makes you sad sometimes. But then you feel really strong and can't imagine how you ever let that become a habit in the first place. Everyday you find more reasons that breaking up was the right thing to do but you still have that moment of doubt. It's more emotional than I thought. I guess that's why they say it's one of the hardest things to quit. I'll be honest and say that I didn't really want to write about this on here because it's not something I'm terribly proud of, but you girls are my friends and I want to share this experience with you. And I hate to admit that blogging has helped me in some strange way with this process. And honestly, I'm VERY happy with how this is going. With the exception of yesterday, things have been good. (For the record, at no point did I feel even the slightest bit tempted to actually smoke).

Now it's time for some funny. Check out this promo for The Office. Enjoy!
