  1. Lisa, I love your “If we were having coffee” posts. They are full of what is going on in your neck of the woods. Here’s hoping your girlfriend get’s better and that you don’t get sick as well.
    Good new about the job promotion . Bad news on the fact you won’t be spending much time together. I am so glad you got your time away.
    Have a gentle , relaxing week,
    Hugs Sarah.


  2. Wow, congrats on 13 years together! That’s pretty amazing. :) Sorry to hear that you’re not able to spend as much time with one another lately, though. Even though a job promotion is a good thing, missing time together is still an adjustment. My husband went back to office work this week after the two of us spending several months working out of home together, and that’s definitely been an adjustment.

    Good luck with quitting smoking—I quit a few months ago. It was pretty easy to actually quit, because I had pneumonia and didn’t want to smoke, but it’s more difficult to *stay* quit now. This is the 3rd time I’ve quit, though, so I’m hoping the 3rd time is the charm. Seems like smoking wouldn’t be so difficult to give up, but it’s a right pain.


    1. Thanks!

      I’ve probably quit smoking about six times now. I didn’t fair well this last week but I am smoking a lot less than usual. I have to take it day-by-day right now and not worry too much about it when I cave and smoke another. I just wake up every morning I tell myself “I am not going to smoke today”.

      1. I’ve quit and started again and quit again so many times—I didn’t smoke while pregnant, and there are various other times I’ve not smoked for a while, but then sooner or later I am stressed out enough to have one, and that snowballs. It’s so difficult to quit for good.


  3. I hope you two are able to carve out as much time to spend together as you can. I know it’s important for you…for both of you and for your relationship, no matter how long you’ve been together. Yay for the drawing! I never could draw. Maybe one day I’ll take a class or something. And Twitter chats…I’ve wondered about those. I have not participated in them. I don’t really get Twitter. I need to spend time there to figure it all out. I tweet blog post shares. I sometimes answer the notifications and thank people and retweet but not so much. I need to do that.


    1. We are working on it :)

      The Twitter chat thing has been great! I’m not good at Twitter at all so it helps me meet new people on there and gives me more confidence to jump in and talk to people. I highly recommend it!


  4. An idea on the Twitter chats — I use Tweetdeck, and found that I can basically take that same approach, but have it all in one window (using their columns) which makes it much easier to keep tabs on :)
    Good luck with the quitting smoking! YOU CAN DO IT!
