I sincerely hope this is my last cigarette. I really am. Almost two months of Chantix, a whole lot of pep talk, and sheer fucking will oughtta do it. I'm not quitting for my health as much as I'm quitting for Dante, who has decided to start pretending to smoke. I hate it. I hate that he knows what a "smoke break" is. I'm also quitting because of the firmly held belief that if my bestest friend in the whole wide world had quit when he was my age, he could still fucking be here. (Please pardon all the French; I can't quite help it today...)
And in other news, since I have been meaning to post for a few months now, Scarlett wears a prosthetic helmet. Her flat head was beginning to become an issue, not just on the squishiness of her face, but her doc and her physical therapist were afraid her optic nerve would get pinched, along with a host of other problems. So, now she has a helmet with hearts all over it.
Oi. For those that weren't paying attention, I got a new van for my birthday after my Subaru (bless her tired soul) gave me the finger in a way even I found obscene. So now I have a minivan. (Sigh.) Said minivan decided on Sunday that she was going to pout and not start when I was trying to go get breakfast burritos for us. Well, that didn't work, and I was stuck at 7-11 with me and Dante until Hubby came and rescued him while I waited for a tow. Yeah. So now I am waiting for the mobile mechanic to get his bum this way in traditional Denver rush hour traffic so I can get my car out of one of the dentist's parking spots.
Not too much is going on. Next week, I get to go to a dear friend's wedding, and I'm taking Scarlett for her 1 year pictures and getting Dante some school clothes at JCPenney. Not so much because I love what they have; I just really love how they keep featuring gay couples in their advertising. Gotta support what you believe in! (One of my soapboxes!)
I am REALLY looking forward to Dante going to school. I think we are both getting tired of each other. But that's another post, for another day. If I can remember I have this thing. =P
(Oh, and whomever said that it gets easier to function after a friends death with time can go fuck themselves. I miss him more and more every day, and there aren't enough pills on the face of the earth that can help. Just sayin'.)
