I Believe I Need To....

In thinking about how to get out of the mood I am in, I have decided that I need to try to plan into my day or week some of the things I wish to work towards becoming in my life.  As a way to start this out, I want to list some of the things I have been contemplating and wanting to work towards:

1.  Getting rid of my smoking a pipe for good.

2.  Spending more time having FUN with my wife, and not just doing the day-to-day activities that need to be done.

3.  Writing creative fiction regularly.

4.  Working at learning to play more successfully either the Guitar or the Ukulele. 

5.  Getting back into a band/orchestra to play my clarinets/saxaphones.

6.  Working at work to envision and plan my leaving being the damn Department Chair and how I want to restructure my work life at the U.

Those will be my foci,

I think it's good to have a plan to focus on and goals to work towards. If we are able to take our minds out of ourselves and our misery for a while we may find ourselves moving out on a longer term basis eventually.

These sound like worthwhile goals, every one of them. I think that playing in a band will be lots of fun.

It's time to just embrace your pipe smoking. So much healthier than cigarette smoking. It is totally part of who you are. Accept this pleasure as part of being human.
