Blue, But Fighting

I woke up today feeling nervous, sad, and blue.  A part of the reason for this is that I think a variety of people in my family are all coming down with various types of upper respiratory infection.  I worry about everyone and how it will impact their day (as well as mine).  My wife has been experiencing a sore throat and congestion. 

I feel fine at the moment (knock on wood).  I am hoping today I will be successful in getting the salesperson to take our offer for the vehicle my wife wants.  I am tired of haggling with the salespeople, but still determined to not get taken to the cleaners either. 

On the pipe front, I have decided to begin today a gradual decline in the number of bowls of pipe tobacco I smoke a day.  That will be a first step.  Up until today, I have allowed myself to indulge in unlimited quantities of pipe tobacco.   My estimate of usage over the last 4-5 months has been between 7-14 bowls a day.  Probably the AVERAGE each day would be 8 during that time frame.  Starting today, and through this week, I am going to only indulge in *up to* five  bowls a day, with the plan for next Monday to begin a week of 3 bowls. 

We shall see how it goes.

I didn't realize you smoked that much, my bowl is about half the size of yours and I limit it to one bowl an hour.

Of course at times I'm full of shit and break my limit.
