I Almost Forgot !

This day was put aside, as I was in no condition to do much of anything other then take our Aussies out, about and in, other then maybe a 1/2 hour of paperwork.  I haven't even made the bed yet.  When that happens you really know something is wrong with me !!!

Last night I had to go to bed at 6:30 pm, sleeping right through pretty much until this morning.  I had to go back to bed, wherein I slept from after 9 am until 11 am.  With no energy I was back and forth twice this afternoon to bed.  Good thing when a friend dropped over to see the puppies this afternoon, it had been between my being in bed.  Jeez I wonder if she noticed my hair hadn't even been combed out.  Wouldn't matter as she is a good friend, non-judgmental and understands things like this.

I do not know what is going on with me, but I can tell you I do not like it one iota.  I am drained.

I can not believe how many times the thought went through my head in April, with me ending up forgetting that as of April 23rd, 2013 ....

"I broke my habit of smoking and quit Four Years ago on the 23rd of April."

Believe you, me, there have been many times where I have been tempted to have a cigarette since quitting.  Then I think about my Asthma, how much I hate the smell of it, my clothes smell better now, only smelling of smoke from the wood stove from when it has backed up on occasion  *sigh*, and that I do not have to stand out in the freezing cold in the Winter to have a smoke anymore.  I hate cold !

It is one habit I am thankful that I was able to beat, as it is not an easy task for some of us.  Actually I am very grateful that Rob and I never killed each other when I quit.  He had also tried to quit without succeeding, but when he was trying to quit there were days it sure wasn't a pretty sight around here.  Thank God we love each other is all I can say to that.  Ha ! now we only have to deal with menopause, among a few other obstacles Life insists on throwing at us from time to time.

The most excitement I have had here all day, other then my friend and her daughter popping in to see the pups, was my gazing down at the Everything 8 puppies throughout the day.  I could stand there most of the day watching on, even at barely 4 days old.

Have a look see yourself HERE, and tell me if you could tear yourself away after only a couple of seconds.

YIKES !  maybe I am a whole lot little bit on the stressed out side, with taking another big step out in Faith, but a Wife has to encourage, support and believe in their Husband, and I do believe in MY Husband.

On that note, one more tidbit of cuteness of brother and sister snuggled side by side ....

...and, once again,  I am off to take my gang out, about and in, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard."


  1. Oh Cindy I think you should go get a checkup and some bloodwork maybe you need a quart of iron:)
    I am so happy you quit smoking I am so happy when anyone quits smoking I have seen what it does down the line. Congrats. Cuteness is right. B

  2. Congrats to you Cindy~~ It will be 5 years for me in October:) There are days yet, that I would love a cigarette, but at $7.25 a pack, no thanks~ Congrats Cindy, I know how hard it is:) Lynn

  3. I'm right there with ya.. i've been absolutely exhausted lately!! Still getting through my days but it's not easy! Today was a productive day thankfully! :)

    I'm glad you quit smoking, that's the very best thing you could do for your health, Cindy! :) Feel better soon! hugs!!

    PS - Voted again!!

  4. Congrats on the quitting smoking and sticking with it , It is a tuff habit to kick I am still trying ! Your lack of energy and no get up and go cause it got up and left could be a B 12 deficiency I felt like that for a long time and that's what it was with me I was B 12 anemic ! Hope you feel better soon and get it resolved so you have some get up and go ! Have a good day !

  5. Maybe it's stress causing your fatigue Cindy; it's such a terrible thing. Someone told me recently that you are born with an allocation of adrenalin and once it's gone, it's gone!

    The puppies are adorable and I could watch them all day....

  6. OOooohh I want another puppy !!!! I wish I can have lots of pups like you.

  7. Congratulations on quitting smoking for this long Cindy! What a huge obstical it is to overcome, keep up the great work!
    That fatigue feeling is the pits, I get so discouraged when it kicks in with me too, but as Country Gal said, could be a deficiency, I am going to try the B-12 myself as so many have suggested and I've not gotten around to it...too tired I suppose :)
    Those pups are amazing! Hope you feel better :)

  8. Thanks girls; I do get a regular shot of B12 at my Doctors once every 3 months; I am thinking it is getting used to the new meds I have started this week. Feel better today..

  9. OMG - are they cute!! The video was totally a moment of Zen for me this morning - those cute little nuggets!! I've never had a puppy, my dogs were both adults when we got them.....someday!! Stopping in from Bloggy Friends, thanks for sharing :o) & have a great week!!

  10. They do in fact look like a pair of hairy potatoes x

  11. I hope you get yourself checked out if the "drained feeling" keeps occurring. Better safe than sorry :-) To stop smoking is one of the hardest things to do,,, I take my hat off to you ! Thank you for sharing this post at our All My Bloggy Friends Party !

    With A Blast

  12. I hope the drained feeling you've been having is clearing up as of this writing.
