Day 4: Your favorite book

My favorite book. Wow.. I've never thought about my favorite book. I look around my house, and I see books everywhere. Kids books, adult books, dog books, dictionaries, military books, borrowed books, books to give away, books to keep, spiral bound books, hard cover books, soft cover books, books on tape!
I grew up with a mom that read all the time. I think some of my earliest memories involve my mom, sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee and a cigarette, and her book.  When I was 14, my mom quit smoking (about the time I *started* smoking) and so from then on it was just the coffee and the book at the kitchen table! My mom instilled a deep love for reading in me, which I HOPE that I can instill in my children. (Worked for Bug, Monkey, not so much!)

I think my favorite book for this past week would actually not be a book at all, it's a pamphlet that I picked up from my doctors office quite a while back. It's about what happens to your body when you quit smoking. Seven days ago today, I quit smoking. Actually, I had my last smoke around 5pm, but, yano! I am halfway to increasing my circulation today! I  feel a whole lot better physically! Now I just need to "relearn" how to calm myself from an agitated state without smoking. I don't think I ever really learned how to do this without the aid of smoking, so, my poor husband gets to endure me learning! All I can say is it's a good thing that he loves me! Here is a poster of basically what my pamphlet says, but much cooler!
