Grouchy Old Man And Other Weekend Ramblings
Monday, January 14, 2013
Hubby has talked about quitting smoking for a few yrs now. He said that THIS would be the yr he would. I was skeptical to say the least. But I didn't nag him about it. He knows hos I feel about it. And I don't buy his smokes for him (on the weeks I buy groceries). So image my surprise when he DID quit! As of Saturday, he's stopped smoking. We spent the looking at patches for him to wear, but by the end of the day we hadn't found one he wanted to spend money on. So he decide to go COLD TURKEY. As proud of him for trying that, I'm the one has to put up with a grouchy old man in the house (or car!)
. And GROUCHY is just what he was all day Sat. At our last stop I just flat out told him...I'm buying you the patches! I love him for doing this, and we do have a strong marriage, but I can only take so much grouchiness. So he's on NicoDerm CQ patches for 14 days. Wish us BOTH luck to get though this!
I don't know if it's due to the stop smoking but hubby was also cold all weekend. Temps here in Las Vegas are in the low 20's (night) to mid 30's (day). He swore up and down that our heat pump had gone out. But the house was a nice 74-75 most of the weekend. But he was still cold. I do admit that when the heat pump would kick on...it wasn't HOT air blowing out of the vents, lukewarm at best. We set a ceramic heater up in the bedroom (I wasn't cold but hubby was) for the night. Nearly roasted me out! Hubby called a HVAC guy yesterday and he came out today (which meant hubby stayed home from work). All he could find was the unit needed freon. He added some and it seemed to take care of the problem. Cost us $80 to do. I hope that takes care of the problem for good.
I had a bad weekend eating wise. Just the same problem..nibbling though the day. Stress maybe from dealing with my grouchy old hubby (think an old fuzzy, grumpy teddy bear!), the heat pump drama, and being tried most of the weekend probably played a role in the eating bad. But I seem to be back on track today.
We went to AZ for lottery tickets. You never know...someone has to win...it might as well be US! We have draws for the next 10 weeks.
So that's it for me today. At least this week only has 1 Monday (even if I have to work a full week..the frist time all year!
) Stay warm everyone!
