Giving up one of my addictions...for now :)

In our household there is always one staple in our pantry. We could be missing bread, milk, rice, etc...but you bet that dear hubs is going to have this item in the house:
We can wait to next shopping trip for anything else but if Coke is missing hubs will go for a drive and magically "PUFF" Coke will be there. It was getting a little ridiculous when I saw that we where buying 3 * 2 Ltrs every other day. No kidding! 6 Ltrs in 2 or 3 days! Hubs has always been addicted and since he doesn't drink coffee (WEIRDO) that IS his caffeine jolt. For me, I started drinking more of it since we got together and was trying to get him to quit but instead he got me hooked!

So today is our second day without it *YIKES*, we made the commitment of 30 days on no soda for now so let's see how that goes. Thank Heavens I still have my coffee :) People around me are afraid someone is going to get hurt, I just tell them to give me a week so the nervous tick wears off.

Over and Out

I decided to dance around in the office just to see what reaction I got from people and basically they all acted like it was normal for me to sing "Rent" and dance...figures! I should try harder to shock them.

I found your blog via Manuela at The Pleasures of Homemaking. I am glad to "meet" you, sorry that things are in such a state. Be sure that some how, someway, things have a way of turning out. I am in a similar predicament, IF our company goes under (They are in chapter 11) both my husband and I will be out of jobs.

I also am struggling with the soda addition...I love me some Dr. Pepper. I have been trying to give it up and was semi-successful but got back on the band wagon again a year and half ago. Got to conquer this!

Best Wishes and Lots of Prayers.
