Just Stop It Already & Spare Lung Anyone???

Just Stop It Already & Spare Lung Anyone??!!

On today's financial forefront was a phone call to National City Credit Card to STOP sending me those dumb convenience checks. Only took a minute or two, and I did use their toll free number but wish these places did not send this crap out!

No bank run today as we are iced in AND I took all my wallet cash out earlier in the week and stuffed piggy with it for the $20 Challenge anyways. So, nothing there to run with.

Today finds us eating leftover white beans w/ham chunks for lunch. Yummers. That will be the end of that and I'll make us a big pot of potato soup for supper. I love me some tater' soup folks! The best next thing to being home at Momma's and eating HER potato soup! I did get a call from her this morning and they are without electricity but the worst to her was that she won't get to make her weekly trip to the hairdresser! Oh Vanity!! Smile

Of family note is that my sister took my brother to the doctor yesterday and he hasn't been doing his breathing treatments like he should. Doctor gave him a good talking to. Sister asked him on the way home if he understood it all and if he knew what the cure was for the acute pulmonary hypertension that he has.

"Uh, no - a cure???"

Well she tells him..."It's a lung transplant bubba - do you know anyone who's going to give you one of their lungs???? No? Then better start doing those breathing treatments, heh? ...and keeping that oxygen on at ALL TIMES."

His breathing level is practically nil and his heart is already grossly enlarged. Can the boy not get a hint???? Sheeesh! You gotta love my sister, God love her she tells it like it is. No sugarcoating. Just blunt.

It's reality time brother!

Sometimes it feels like a swift kick to the backside is not doing any good and you'd like to go for a good whack up side the head if you thought it would penetrate, ya know????

I got off the phone w/Mom giving me the medical update and walked outside and there was Hubster with a lit cigarrette in hand. I just whacked him right on the shoulder - thru his parka coat and asked if he'd had the quit smoking prescription dealybob filled yet? I already knew the answer was no. He got it from the doc early last week!

I am tired of sitting by the bedside of folks who won't take care of their own health!!!! I gave him the evil eye, I'm watching you look and re-entered the house! Lord help us all!


No spending - I haven't spent any money this week at all - none since last Saturday when I spent 3.24 on drinks for three harried remodeling folks after our sawing & hammering. Yeah me!!

    So many people ignore the fact that smoking is a killer... and with all the information readily available and blatantly thrown at people, there's no excuse. I hope Brother will start doing his treatments and get better!

    We've been having beans and ham, also. And I love potato soup on cold days. We make baked potato soup a lot with cheese and bacon pieces added on top. Yum!

    I think I'm gonna go make some potato soup right now!
    Best thing I ever did was to quit smoking years ago!!

    Had surgery almost a year ago, when I came home I tried to light up and couldn't. After the second try I realized I didn't even want the thing. I was done, no cravings,no more smelly house, and a lot more money in my pocket. BUT until a person decides for themselves I believe it's hopeless to badger them. When their ready they'll stop.

    There is a comic strip dealing with the smoking thing right now. It's called Non Sequiter and the somewhat off little girl wanted to open an advertising agency and she came up with a slogan for smoking...More Addictive than Heroin...But its Legal! Just really makes you wonder sometimes about how something so devastingly awful for the human body can still be legal after all these years. The FDA should have done something long ago, but I don't really think they are interested in protecting the public health even if that is supposed to be what they are for.
