"Pack"ing and Grateful

Blog Post created by rollercoaster831 Champion on Aug 13, 2017

I am in the midst of packing up my family for vacation.  It is a huge task for me, but I have done it before and will do it in the future.  I was emptying out the backpack I use for work so I can put various carry-on items in it for our trip and I opened up one of the smaller side pockets and found a pack of cigarettes.  It was sealed and unopened.  I completely forgot I had put it there.


I paused.  


Thank goodness I found it BEFORE leaving on our trip.  What if I had found it while on our trip...where I am already a little nervous because I will be around smokers and haven't had to deal with that a lot yet.


I called out to my husband and let him know what I found.  If I tell him imeediately, there is NO chance if me sneaking one.  I then opened up the pack and ran water on it soaking every last sickarette...squished the pack in my hand, destroying all 20 of those darn things just in case I got the idea to pick them out of the garbage, and then threw the mess into our outside garbage cans.


I WON!  Take that!  I got this!  I don't do that anymore!  NOPE!  SINAO!
