I went shopping some more, ya’ll: 2 more pairs of shoes, 5 skorts and a few tees, underthings. I do want a couple more church dresses if I can find them, but I won’t die without them. I think I am just about done with the clothes thing, and I just have to say that I am so glad my mom has a credit card with a good rate. She did some comparison shopping to find it, and that works really well for me, since I can use it to shop and then just give her the money. It’s a lot easier to just slip a card and a license in my pocket and go than to lug a pocketbook around.
Now, onto another topic: Today, I am up to five hours between smokes. I find that the physical cravings are not as bad as the need for a “mental break”. I decided last night that when I get an over-powering urge for a cigarette, I’ll walk to the end of the block and back. That won’t take me any longer than my smoke breaks did, and it will get me moving. Mama assures me that I am going to gain weight now. I like my new clothes, and am determined that I will not. The walking will therefore serve a dual purpose.
