I got called into work from 2-10 and had to ride the bus so I ended up 10 minutes late. I explained to my boss how I was just learning how to ride the bus and he said, "no worries"! I have a great boss! I got a lot of walking to get to work and I do a whole lot of walking at work so I think I will easily get in my 5,000 steps ( I forgot my pedometer). I sure need the extra hours to help pay for my car to get repaired so I am so happy he called me in tonight! My son is going to pick me up since most of the busses quit running at 9 pm now because of all the cutbacks they have had to do here in Sacramento. I really feel for one of my coworkers who always takes the bus and the train to and from work!
I have done really good on my eating today, and only one pepsi, I need to quit pepsi someday soon too:) When I quit smoking I will quit drinking pepsi because there is nothing like an ice cold pepsi and a cigarette! Same with coffee, I will probably have to give that up too! Oh well, neither one is good for me, so it will be a win-win-win situation:)
I did the introduction and the first discussion thread at school today. It felt good to be "back in the saddle again". I really like having other things to think about besides the house, the bills, and my car! I really enjoy school and am glad I decided to go back!

When my timeline, career, family life, and spiritual walk are going as planned, I accept Your ways, Lord. I rest in how rewarding my faith can be. But when I face hardship, I assume You have left me or have caused me pain. I know this is not truth. You do not give us more than we are able to bear, God, help me sense Your active presence. Teach me Your mercy so that I never question it again. Give my heart a measure of promise to keep me going.
Plant in me a trust that will take firm root. Help me recall the previous times when difficulties turned into lessons, strength, and even blessing. May I see every obstacle as an opportunity to accept all that You have for me. Amen

I got a prescription for Chantix today! I won't be able to get it filled until I get my income tax return, but at least I have it! I also got a card with a code on it so I can call 1-800-NOBUTTS and get the patch! Yay! There is hope for me yet:)
I spent all day at the clinic, didn't get home until 2 pm, after working all night, so I ended up over sleeping and was an hour late for work:(
I called my boss and he was really great about me being late. This is the first time I have ever been late, so he was very reasonable about it. I really hate being late though!

Today I was going to have a leisurely day-or so I thought! I decided to take the bus to the store. A short little trip that would be fun, the store is only about a couple of miles down the road. Well, I got on the bus and made it to the store just fine, then I ended buying more than I had planned, and ended up with my backpack full of fresh vegetables and fruit plus two bags of groceries I would have to carry, plus I found out it cost $2.50 every time you get on the bus, so it was $5.00 to go there and come back! When I got off the bus it was practically in front of the store, but....when I came out of the store and looked for the bus stop going back the other way, I couldn't see one anywhere! I walked up the street and around the corner, and still no bus stop in sight! A young man pointed out where there was one down the other street so I walked over there only to find out it was going the opposite way of where I wanted. So then I walked back to the store, across the street, and started walking in the direction of home. Finally, I saw the bus stop, but it was still a ways away! I made it there, but my back was drenched in sweat from the weight of the vegetables in it and the sun was shining bright the whole time! I did make home ok, but boy am I tired! Which is a good thing, because I have to work from 10pm-6am again, and this time I think I will be able to take a good long nap before I go to work! So all in all it turned out for the best! Good exercise and a good nap in a few minutes!
