After resting for a few minutes I finally have my bearings again. As has been noted in previous posts, I want to quit smoking so we have been making it harder for us to smoke. My wife an I have been leaving them in the car to avoid having them readily available. It has helped big time. We have dropped to about a pack a day between both of us. This is from me smoking right at 3 packs a day and my wife smoking a pack to a pack and a half.
Tonight introduced me to something new. We ran out of cigarettes and with a headlight out and a cop sitting up the road, it was either do without or walk to the store through a construction zone. Most of the road is torn up and either dirt or unfinished. So walking through that would be interesting. What the heck.. It was time for a challenge. So out the door I went, telling my wife I was going to the store. I just didnt tell her I wasnt driving. The store is about a mile a way. No big deal, for the most part and when they finish the sidewalks it will be a breeze, but for now its somewhat of a challenge. Doing it when the drunks and the jerks are out made it a bit worse since I am not the type of person not to respond when some punk screams something at me. I usually respond with sign language if you catch my drift which isnt really smart but I guess the older I get the more onery I get.
I made the 2 mile trek in about 30 minutes. Not bad but not good either. It will get better. Russ is supposed to call me in the morning for the gym. I have to say I hope he waits a while and I get to sleep in a bit.
Have a great weekend all!
