I need to fit all of this into what?

Eight months from now I (including my fiancée, dog and cat) will be moving into a tiny one bedroom apartment in the upstairs of a over 100 year old house. I currently live in a two bedroom apartment, it’s pretty roomy. I have a whole spare room and 4 closets to hide all of my treasures. I have already been working hard on purging the small stuff, like décor, candles, old books and movies. But I am nowhere close to where I need to be including deciding what furniture will stay and what will go.

This weekend I plan to tackle that project, that way I have the next eight months to find the items I cannot keep new homes. Plus it will give me a better idea on what small stuff still needs to go. So the plan is to measure all my current furniture and tape paper together to show the width and length of the items. Then haul them over to the new apartment and lay them all out, this way I can see what will fit. Oh and I’m dragging my Sister along to help. If all goes well I will post some pictures.

The Battle with Nic

So, money is an ongoing problem in my life. I need to save to pay off my upcoming wedding and the “little” things keep adding up and making me broke. I’m used to being broke, because it seems there is always SOMETHING to buy. Right now I have $7.00,
So yesterday I decided it would be a good idea to try and quit smoking.

I have quit before, and it was hard. It always is.

I made it until 10:00 AM today.

If you’re a non smoker do not judge me. It is an addiction, and not only that but it is a part of my identity. I am a smoker, and I have been for several years. I don’t remember what it was like not to wake up and smoke, to take my breaks outside… even in the coldest winter months, to always have them with me. They are like little friends, who bring me relief and a happy dizzy feeling.

So with all that said, I’ve decided to cut back… extremely. I used to smoke a pack a day, and now I’m going to monitor how much I smoke and update at the end of the week.

Shutter Island

Shutter Island
By: Dennis Lehane

I just finished reading Shutter Island it was borrowed to me by a good friend who said “it was SO good”. As you may know the movie by the same name made after the book is currently in theaters now.

This book takes place in 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels and his partner Chuck Aule come to the Island to assist in finding a missing Patient. As they attempt to determine how the patient made it out of her locked cell, past several orderlies and past guarded checkpoints they uncover secrets about the island. Armed with a code left by the missing patient Teddy is going to uncover what is really happening on the island… even if it makes him insane.
I am not much for suspenseful books, but this one was done right. Shutter Island is a good read.
I am now reading: Love the one your with By: Emily Giffin
Happy Reading.
