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...

Twitchy Eye

So, it’s not technically a work day, but I’ve been experiencing post-“work” side effects. It has been over 10 days since my eye started twitching. Not the corner of your eyelid twitch that goes away in a few minutes, which at this point I’d take and accept as some sort of blessing from above. At this point my right eye has been experiencing a recurrent “twitch”. I can see it in the mirror, but not every time. Sometimes it just feels like my eye is bubbling (like extra air). At this point I’m begging for it to stop! It doesn’t hurt, it doesn’t cause me interruptions in my work, but it is driving me crazy! Luckily I have a few friends in the  nursing profession who provided me with a few suggestions: Damp cold cloth – hold wet/damp cold cloth to closed eye for 30+ minutes No screen time – try not to engage in any screen time for 24 to 48 hours (tv, phone, computer, etc) Sleep – MOAR SLEEP. Dehydration – drink more water Stress – Ummm, relax? So, I did what I could to accomplish all the goals above, but unfortunately nothing has worked for me at this point. I’m not stresssed (emotionally or physicaly at this point). Cold compress, check! No screen time? Well this is my first extended time in 48 hours! So… winning? Ok, so not perfect, but better than 12+ hours a day, right? Sleep? Well, I get about 7-8+ a night so I’m not lacking there… Dehydration? I consume water like its going out of style, so that isn’t an issue either. Stress? Well, I have my days...
