It's a process.
The gophers spent years undermining the brick walkway to the point of sections sinking. The landscapers pulled it all up yesterday.
I remember when my dad laid it. That had to be 58 years ago.
It's gone. There's no place to goph.
They left one small tree at the end of the house and the oak tree and low lying cypress at the other.
The middle is empty. We stopped watering the lawn over a year ago knowing we would be redoing it. that was our preparation.
Quitting is a process
Your middle will feel empty for awhile.
Give it time.
You are not defined as a smoker any longer.
You are the landscaper of your life now.
