I haven't felt very good this past week. I am very congested and with a lot aches and pains. Called in sick at work last night and that is something that I have not done very much in my working life. I worked hard most of my adult life and I'm starting to feel very tired. There has to be more to life than just working. Feel a bout of depression seeping into my bones.

My wife is suffering from pain in the back, she thinks that it might be a kidney. I will pray for her in church this morning. It hurts me to see her suffering.

I intended to quit smoking this previous weekend but failed. Just smoked my last cig and I don't intend to buy another pack. Of course, there is the saying that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. The thing is I really want to live as long as possible and quitting smoking gives me the best chance.

I tried last year and lasted 3 months before snapping. Time for another go of it...yes, the pain is coming. No pain, no gain. That's another saying that I have heard. I believe that there may be an element of truth to it. Don't know about the first saying. Will keep you posted.

The last few days I haven't felt very good. Very achy and my head is pounding. I need to gain weight also but that is hard when you have lost your appetite. Honey is making me some Campbell's soup. That is good food. At least that is my understanding.

Time to assemble a cabinet for my stepdaughter for Christmas. If I follow the poorly written instructions I will be inserting part A into part B. Seriously, I don't have the time for the drama of reading instructions so I will probably just wing it. I haven't done any Christmas shopping for presents either let alone stocking stuffers. It's that time of the season once again. Gonna need scotch tape and a screw driver. The pain is coming. Cheers.

I HATE putting stuff together. Don't have the patience for it. That's why I ask my neighbor to do it for me. She loves putting stuff together.. lol

I ordered a cat toy box recently from one of my magazines. I did put that together myself because I only had to insert 4 screws into the pipes and turn them.. lol

To try and encourage my Tourist to quit smoking I have started taking things away from myself as I need to correct some of my bad habits in eating the wrong things. So I took away my favorite thing potato chips it has been almost a week since I had a potato chip and I want them bad.... tomorrow I have to take away something else because he is still smoking need to figure out what my second favorite bad thing is to give up tomorrow as I am going to give something up every week until he stops smoking and I won't allow myself to have it again until he has totally quit.

I figure if he has to go through withdraw pains then I should too and believe me I want a potato chip I really love them... well if he never stops smoking at least at some point I will have to start loosing weight because I will keep taking bad things away from myself until he catches on... If he doesn't catch on then maybe someday I'll be the weight I should be with a healthier diet... Doesn't seem quite fair that I will be going through all the withdraw symptoms.... you know the frig calling my name or the potato chip isle at the store having chips start walking toward me saying eat me....lol

I can't say nothing cause I've never been there. "Every man knows what to do with a kicking mule... right up until he has one of his own." Looks to me like it would be easy to give up something that nasty, but I don't know anything about what it's like being addicted to them.

When someone has a noisy brat of a kid I don't talk about how I would deal with a kid like that because I've never had kids, so I reckon I'll just keep my mouth shut about how I think someone should quit smoking. ;)

Best wishes for a speedy recovery tourist.
