    put it in cigar boxes, forget about it being there until every once in a while I need something; could be a bottle of scotch or a fuel pump, or maybe some groceries or meds.

    I can remember working really hard 8-10 hours a day, becoming 16 hours if there's a charette or a deadline, three hour commute each way, barely having time to shower shave and put on a clean shirt, then year in, year out, back to the grind.

    My wife always had my back with the grocery shopping
    so now that she's no longer able to function in the way I'm used to I'm learning to do all the stuff she used to do, shop, cook, bake, clean, do the laundry, pay the bills, weed the garden; everything but the go to work herself part.

    That's what I got out of this video, there are choices you could make that change everything, don't smoke or drink for a week, throw what you save in the cigar box.

      you are not the center of the universe and others might be going through something very similar to what you are going through and maybe we should be less stressed about having to deal with each other being in each other's way.

      and I would never recommend taking a week off from getting drunk or high.  

      I sing praises in the church of nonsense, but in my heart I'm still an atheist, demanding sense of all things.
