three months sober.
Thanks for voting! And while those of you who guessed gossiping and talking with my mouth full are correct in a way... I do have those horrible habits but I have yet to conquer them... As far as the swearing goes, eh I tried that for a couple months, just wasn't me. Swear words sound absolutely ridiculous coming outta my mouth! (not to mention they're not very lady-like ) So, without further adieu...
The correct answer is...
Thumb Sucker. I was a 26 year old thumb sucker! Ha! I can not even believe I just typed that! I'm just letting it all hang out for you guys! But hey, I conquered it over 3 months ago so YAY for me!
I tried so many times before to quit but like any bad habit the thumb called to me.
When I was stressed. Tired. Hungry. Just before bed. On long car rides. On short car rides. It was bad. And its not like cigarettes or alcohol. You can't just throw away your thumb. It's attached! Not that I'm justifying my childish behavior or down playing how extremely hard it is to quit smoking or drinking! But seriously, this was my Everest!
The worst was trying to go to sleep at night. Man I nearly went crazy with insomnia. It took about 6 weeks before I could go an entire day w/no "cravings."
Wow! I'm a mess. But hey, it's over now and I'm never going back. I really don't want Miles to be embarrassed of his thumb sucking mama. I'm sure he'll find plenty other reasons to be ashamed of me! (please god not mom jeans. never mom jeans.)
So there ya have it. My big secret. Well, one of them. ( A girl's gotta have a few secrets right?) I think that's quite enough for today.
Oh! Check back tomorrow and take a gander at what we turned this beat up old ladder into!!!
