After a long day full of headaches and nervous jitters I am going to bed now. I wish I could have done better with my Declarations on quiting smoking and Diet Coke but I have made much progress in my ultimate success. Total count for January 1- smoked 4 cigarettes and drank 6 diet cokes. Not good by any ones standards but tomorrow I will continue the fight. I have added a side bar to let others keep track of my success and failures. I vow to continue to battle these addictions until they are defeated no matter what. I have given my word to you and to myself and I WILL keep my word. It's a matter of honor to me now. I'll keep you updated.
On a lighter note, the new goat kids are doing great. I kept them and their mother in the barn last night and I let them out today to enjoy a little sunshine. They ran and jumped and had a ball. We held them and made sure they knew that we were no threat to them and that we provide nothing but love and kindness. It was a good day here on the farm for all.
