Well, two and a half weeks into the quitting smoking project and the insanity is in full swing! My wife had to quit the patch a couple times this week (nicely timed with her "monthly visitor") because it was upsetting her stomach big time. Well, hello crazy! the poor woman is hanging on by a thread, still hasn't smoked, but she's feeling awful, totally irrational and emotionally/spiritually ouchy... I am doing my best to remember the crap she's dealing with and not take offense to her moods. But, being the sensitive guy that I am :-) I find her moods to be less than pleasant. So, here goes: God, please help me not be a self-centered ass, and let my wife be how she needs to be as she works through her non-smoking campaign. Oh, and please help me help her. Oh, one more, please... your will for her today..."
We're heading off to her home group anniversary this afternoon, I have been asked to give the blessing, how cool is that? Our lil guy is being a whiny pain in the butt 4 yr old. This could prove to be an interesting afternoon. Hopefully he will shape up in time for the meeting cuz it's a long afternoon! This meeting will be my 4th this week ( i am usually good for 2). Man, that's kool. I have been blessed with a bombardification of brand spanking newcomers, we had 12 inmates (usually have 2-4) yesterday at the county jail meeting. it's been a wonderful week of recovery...
