It's The Rebel In Me Coming Out...............

So I'm on edge and stressed out, blah,blah,blah,blah....That's life, right? What's the saying, when life give you lemons, make lemonade...........Or in my case buy cupcakes.....and lots of them......After I left the court house, I received a very disturbing phone call from our daughter in law (our family is falling apart and I feel helpless)....I suffered a small mental break down after that and what happened next.... is a blurr, but somehow I came how with twelve cupcakes a Dr.pepper and a pack of Virgina Slims .......I DON'T SMOKE!!!! Or drink carbonated beverages.... But in my mental state of mind and still wanting to look like a lady....I bought what I must have thought to be the most elegant and lady like cigarette.......Whatever!!!

I felt like a teenager sneaking behind the bleachers at high school, I was on a high (cupcakes will do that to you)....

Here I was, standing on the back porch starring at eight cupcakes (I finished off a few) , drinking a Dr.pepper with a $5.00 pack of cigarettes in my hand........ The only thing missing was the trailer park a pair of cutoffs and 5 kids hanging around my legs (cue the theme from Cops)........I was in mid puff when the back door opened.....My husband was home.........I couldn't eat the cigarette, and I had cupcakes spread out everywhere........It was a smorgasbord.......He looked at me in disbelief, almost as if he was afraid and slowly asked, "Whats going on?".......I tried to think of something cleaver but all I got out was, " What's it look like?"......He then asked me, "Why are you smoking?".....I looked up at him and said, "Because no one was selling crack at the convenience store"....He looked over at me, rubbed his head and said, " No, but I see they were having a special on cupcakes".....................Turned around and walked back inside......

Sounds like you have a great husband! Enjoy Dr. Pepper and cupcakes...life's short, live a little I think! but the cigarettes...took me forever to lose that habit, and they'll just make you smelly...which'll increase the stress, yadayadayada.

I'd join ya on the cupcakes, but Dr Pepper? No.
And though I MISS cigarettes EVERY day, I quit two years ago, and won't go thru that special hell ever again. Quit before ya go broke trying!!
Cupcakes are cheaper, and oh so much yummier!!!

Oh hon, big big hugs to you!! Been there, felt that...ARG! I'd gladly come over and help you drown your sorrows in soda and cupcakes if I lived close by. I hope things get better. And remember, you can only fix your own life. Those others? No one listens to advice, not even their own.
