I got the discussion 2 thread done, the initial post, I still need to repsond to two of my classmates. And I did the quiz and missed one question. It didn't show me which question I missed or the correct answer to the question, which kind of bugs me, because I can I learn from my mistakes if I don't know which one I missed?
I did email the instructor and asked him how I can find out which one I missed, but who knows how long it will take to get a response:)
I went with my oldest sister to get a lung function test over at Mercy San Juan. She could not hardly do the test her lungs are so bad. We started smoking about the same time about 45 years ago, so I can see where I will be in another 3 years if I don't stop smoking soon. It's horrible! She could not even walk into the hospital. I had to get a wheelchair for her and push her all around the hospitsl to where they do the test. My BIG sister! I can't even express what that feels like to have to push your big sister around in a wheelchair! She has always been the strong one, the one that always has taken care of us other 4 kids when mom was sick and dad was working and such. She has been the one that has always been there for what ever we needed, advice, a bandaid, whatever. Some days are a little depressing but I feel better just being able to say it all here. Thank you sparkpeople!

    I guess yesterday was not one of your happiest days, but I think you did great to approach your instructor the way you did! I am the oldest sister in my clan, so I've gotten kind of bummed when the rest of the clan can go skiing up and down the mountain - but I can't because I'm not in shape enough to ski any more. Sadness is part of the circle of life though, and what a blessing you have been for your big sister!! You are the best little sister in the world for her!

    You are on the right track to a smoke free life.
You realize what you have to do and you are making it an important part of your life.
Go can do it.
Plenty of fresh air and exercise.
Drink your water.

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!

First day of school:)

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

I was able to log in my first dy of college and do the introduction thread. The class doesn't actually start tomorrow. I am really feeling a whole lot nervous about this and hope I have made the right decision! I guess I will know more by this time next week:)

Tomorrow it is supposed to rain pretty good in Sacramento and I get to venture out on the bus once again. It turns out the CV axle in my car is broken, but my son-in-law said he may be able to fix it for me, yay! That will save me a lot of money if he can! I just paid my car off last October and was afraid of something happening to it, but at least it doesn't seem to be something major!

I really need the exercise of riding the bus as I found out that I have gained 15 pounds since I got sick around the 10th of January. It is that darned prednisone! I really hate that medicine but it helps me to breathe, so I cannot hate it too much!

I really need to get motivated again! I am feeling much better and feel like I should be doing a lot more exercise than what I have been doing. I can't wait until next Saturday when the 15% Winter Challenge begins! I am very competitive and know it will motivate me to try to keep up with everybody else doing the challenge:)

Go Cloverleaf's! (that's the team I am on for the challenge)

    Congratulations on starting school! I know how hard it is to go back and the challenges you will face but you can do it.Just like losing weight and working out, take it one day at a time.
Hmm, riding the bus provides an opportunity for exercise. Great way to make the best of a icky situation - keep thinking positive thoughts! emoticon

ONe minute prayers for women-by Hope Lyda, page 94

Sunday, February 13, 2011

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!

    I know how you feel! I always hated being late too. I was the one that was always there half an hour early -- just to get "settled in" before my day started!

GOOD FOR YOU getting the Chantix! We have a program at our local hospital that PROVIDES the Chantix FREE as long as you take their smoking cessation classes. I think it's sponsored through the state -- but it MIGHT be federal. You should look into that! emoticon
