Just Chugging Right Along

First of all - Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your fantastic, supportive comments about my quit smoking program - you are all so dear and do make a difference in my life.

I am doing well and remain and will remain totally committed to this path. I can truly say, "I am a non smoker," and feel proud. I know there are challenges ahead but such is life. At 6:18 am, my Quit Net stats were: 4 days, 9 hours, 44 minutes and 28 seconds - smoke free - Wooooooo Hoooo.

So now to the pictures - I have not really been able to use our old master bedroom since Tom died. I don't know why but that is the fact - the room became the world's biggest hallway to my closet and the bed became a convenient storage space. The only thing I actively used the room for was to walk or run on the treadmill.

Last weekend, I finished cleaning out the storage room under the stairs (that little oak door in the corner) and even painted. I love the color - feels like a caribbean vacation. The room has been reconfigured to be a usable space with a healthy future focused intention. It is now my guest room and exercise space with a nice reading nook too. The room is about done now and I will post the finished pictures as soon as I download from my camera.

Moving on is a healthy pursuit that happens one baby step at a time. Namaste.


  1. Suzann, I LOVE the color. It's so bright and cheery. Hey, you inspired me from a couple of your earlier posts. After years and years of talking about it...but never doing anything about it; I'm having my upstairs bathroom repainted. There's a lot more that can be done, but I'm starting with pulling all the wallpaper down (it's falling down anyway) and probably having a new bathtub put in as well. It's something I've wanted to do FOREVER...and you started me thinking. Thanks for the inspiration steps.
