Thank You Kaye

First my apologies for not blogging. My only excuse is that I quit smoking two weeks ago. My computer is in the one room in the entire house that I smoked in. So, in my quest to stay off the evil weed (tobacco people, tobacco) I haven't been sitting at the computer much. Lame excuse, but it's all I have.

But I had to blog about this:

It is the contents of my package from Kaye. We were partnered in the Handmade Gift swap. You can't see it well in my crappy picture but she made me a beautiful bag in my favorite colors! I'm using it today as I'm going to visit my parents in South Dakota for the weekend. I love the colors, I love the lining! Thank you so much Kaye.

Now I only have to worry about my package getting to Kaye. I've never sent anything out of the country before. It's hard to think of Manitoba as another country. Winnipeg is 457 miles away. Closer to Minneapolis than many, many U.S. cities. And they talk like us there. Texas, now that seems like another country. But oddly enough Manitoba and Minnesota are neighbors in other countries.

I'm off for a few days of hanging out with the folks and business travel. Thanks again Kaye. I can only hope you like my package as well.

What nice gifties! Perhaps that will also help to keep your mind off the evil weed. Happy travels!

I love the bag fabric! Safe travels and best wishes with giving up smoking.

Way to go you big quitter!
I'm on day 26 myself.
It is the best excuse possible for anything you put off ~ so don't beat yourself up about it.
I find that counting the cigarettes I haven't smoked makes for a more rewarding measurement of success.
Personally, I haven't smoked over 520 cigarettes since Thanksgiving.
