My sister made this pin for me to commemorate the one-year quit -- she's got a year in (plus a day), too. Iota Delta Sigma -- I Don't Smoke. That was something that our brother-in-law said to us and it stuck with us both -- that was the mindset. 'I can't go out for a cigarette because I don't smoke.' There were days when that's all that ran through our minds, "I don't smoke. I don't smoke. I don't smoke." Like writing it on the blackboard 500 times.
Can't believe it's been a year. I am still trying to decide what I'd like to do for myself to celebrate -- I am juggling the idea of a make-over type thing or more of a spa-type thing (hot stone massage, a facial, reflexology). It's the kind of thing that I can easily talk myself out of -- that even though I've saved over $1000 by not smoking this past year, I won't want to spend the money. I should, though...
The Olympic Quilter, having taken up the challenge, brought her finished block over the weekend! Isn't it gorgeous? I awarded her a gold medal, of course. I hope I live long enough to see it as an actual, finished quilt. ; )
March is a busy month -- and this one has been like no other. Today, the first day of spring, is my 2nd blogiversary. Incredible. What a lot of fun -- more than I ever imagined. The people I've met and challenges undertaken -- both personally and as concerns knitting -- kind of blow my mind. Thanks for reading and commenting and offering support and advice and just being there. It all kind of blows my mind sometimes. In a good way, a very good way. ; )
