Close Call

I came close last night...real close. If I had had money on me when we went to the kids` school Christmas concert, I would probably have found myself intside the 7-11. Domestic strife and extreme anger have always been my big sticking points...and this was a doozy. Luckily, I forgot (or did I?) to take my wallet with I just went straight to the school, took a seat, breathed deep and tried to ignore the butthead sitting next to me (hubby). Everything is patched up now, and even better...I didn`t smoke. Things would`ve taken a nasty turn for the worse if I had, I realize that now. It would`ve done nothing but cause worse anger...not to mention bitter both myself and my husband. The original situation would`ve paled in comparison to smoking. As it happens, I didn`t smoke...and everything is back the way it should be. We kissed and made up, and everybody`s happy. What`s the better alternative...hmmm...lemme think!

*Reminder Of The Day: Smoking solves NOTHING! It makes things WORSE! SMOKING IS NOT AN OPTION!
