Time is moving so slow

Time is moving so slow

I quit smoking Monday night. About 11:30pm I smoked my last two cigarettes, and then went to bed. I haven’t smoked since, not even smoking me e-cigs. I think about it often, but I’ve managed to not get TOO anxious, and haven’t failed yet. I’m pretty hopeful. But, it seems suddenly time is moving SO slow. I wonder if it’s because I’m not taking smoke breaks anymore, or if this is a side-effect of withdrawal or what. As a reward I asked the hubby to bring me home one of those new dollar menu burgers from Burger King. He brought home two. I was seriously disappointed. I ate the Rodeo burger last night and basically it was a teeny, tiny patty smother in BBQ sauce. No cheese. And the burger was so small! I was basically eating a BBQ sauce sandwich. Gross. Today, I heated up the other burger he got me. The “fry” burger. Again, seriously disappointed. Look at this mess: Ok, so first of all there were THREE fries on this burger. No cheese. And it was sloppy! No good. Burger King, you need to up your game! I could go to McDonald’s get a dollar CHEESEBURGER and a dollar fries and make something way better looking than that. I’m just saying! Anyway, I’m taking a quick break from work. I got a bit more of the bib done last night. Almost finished with his big nose. Can’t wait to move on to something else. I’m bored of this (even though I love the colors), and I keep managing to poke myself. You would think after all...
Cross Stitch “Turtle Trot” Stitch-a-Long 2014

Cross Stitch “Turtle Trot” Stitch-a-Long 2014

A lot of people don’t know that aside from being an extremely busy mom, and super overwhelmed web developer (and occasional designer) – I am pretty into cross stitching. Well, into lots of crafty things, but mostly cross stitch and occasionally quilting. I’m also a total video game freak, but that’s a whole different discussion. So, I saw this cool premise on another blog where you post photos of your old WIPs/UFOs (they said 10, but I only have 7 WIPs, but I’m sure I’ll be starting plenty as the year goes by) and then once a month you post your progress on those projects. It’s called a Turtle Trot, aptly named methinks. Last year I only had 3 finishes (not counting some silly small ornaments). And the ones I finished weren’t that impressive. Basically I spent the summer working on them, and by the summer I mean a portion of July and August, and then got super busy again and dropped all my projects. Another major reason for my lack of stitching is for quite a while I was having serious pain in my wrists/thumbs from too much repetitive motion between the stitching and the typing I do all day. But, all that aside – I’ve decided this will be a great way to keep progress of my stitching, finishing projects – and to get me back into blogging again. I typically blog in my livejournal (started in 2002), but I’m SO over that service (or lack thereof). So, I decided I should utilize my personal domain for something other than collecting virtual dust! So, I’ll be honest...
