116 Days of Freedom!!!

Posted by Pops Aug 13, 2018

Good morning EXers....I haven't blogged for quite sometime now, so I thought this morning would be a good time to check in with everyone.  Things @ work have been pretty hectic as of late, but that has helped keep my mind occupied.  Workload has become a natural distraction to the infrequent thought of smoking again.  btw, the allergies out here in Maryland are simply brutal this year!!! :-(.  One thing I discovered, is that I simply am not thinking about smoking these days.  That would be a true blessing if you ask me....I used to think about it 3, or 4 times a day...Now, maybe just once a week...if that much.  So it appears that I will be achieving the four month mark on Friday...woo hoo!!!!!

Well, I am @ work this morning, and I should probably get something accomplished.  

Have a great smokefree day......

Who's the dummy?......

Pops is....that's who.....

Saturday, as I was doing the chore that "all single bachelors hate to do".....that being putting away my laundry....I happened upon a suitcase that I had left in the corner of my bedroom from my last trip to Ohio a few weeks ago.  I thought to myself, "you lazy turd....pick that up and take it into the spare bedroom where it belongs!"  Well, it seems my laziness caused me an unnecessary amount of stress, because as I lifted it from the floor....I vaguely recognized my black trifold wallet laying ever so quietly underneath it.....lol.  Well, the good thing is...nobody has my credit info, and I actually now had some found money that I thought that I had lost.  Almost all of the credit cards that I had reported lost had already been mailed to me, and reactivated...so it was all in all...a very good find!  Never mind my absent mindedness that seems to come at a much more frequent interval than I would care for....I hope this isn't a tale of dimensia starting to set in....OMG!  That is all that I need now that I am almost ready to go into retirement....I want to have at least ten years of rebel rousing and hurricane slinging & karaoking in my retirement!  I'll be damned if I am going to sit around like a vegetable just aging on the kitchen counter....waiting for someone to throw me away since I have already been bruised!  I'm still here, and I want to party for awhile.  Smokefree at that....!!!! woo hoo!!!!!

Speaking of which....Pops has 109 Days of Freedom today!  Yeah!!!!!

Have a great and relaxing evening.....

Good evening EXers,

Last weekend was a gorgeous weekend for going out in the country on the Harley.  I had a scrumptous greek dinner in a rural town north of here on Sunday, and followed it up with a relaxing country ride.  (see banner of a national park in the Antietem area just north of here.  Wonderful feeling of freedom just staring at this old electrical generating dam from back in the civil war years...Just breathtaking scenery when you take the time to go out and wander.

Well, I was wearing a new pair of jeans that I just got on Friday.  Apparently, the back pocket is a bit loose.  Because I noticed Monday night as I was about to go to the store for some food, that my wallet was missing!  It seems soemwhere along my country drive of about 75 miles...I must have went over a bump, and my wallet must have come out of my back pocket and ended up somewhere in the countyside! ;-(....

I sure am glad that I had gotten a bit of that nervana from the day before.  Let me tell you...it was quite stressful contacting my credit card companies to cancel my cards and order replacements.  Fortunately, I had a couple of other cards in my kitchen drawer to use until my replacements arrive in about 10 days.  I had to buy a duplicate drivers license, registration for my car and motorcycle both.  I then decided that it was time to enroll in LifeLock, as someone now has my social security number, and drivers license.  (They could really reak havoc on my credit if I hadn't acted when I did.)  At least now, all of my personal info will now be protected by a continual monitoring agency that will pay for legal fees up to 1 million dollars if I need to contest a fraudulent action.  

After all of that, I still didn't feel a need to smoke, because after all....I do not do that anymore.....and life just keeps rolling along.

Have a great evening.....
