I'm certainly not averse to success, no matter how transient it may be.

It's better than the alternative.

I've lost almost as many times as I've won.

Like they tell new submarine captains.  "There's a lot to learn but one thing is absolutely essential for a long and successful career.  You must keep track of the number of times the hatch has been opened and closed.  If it's an odd number, don't give the order to dive.

New carpets fitted today.
Cough, splutter, hanging out of the window.

It's warm enough now to sleep out in the garden if the new carpets that bad ;-)

I remember repeatedly hoovering the new fitted carpet at the bungalow.  I emptied several tanks full of factory storage dust and fine loose fibres over the next a few days.  Had to wash out the HEPA filter as well.

The housing association man came and swapped the filter on the ventilation system for a new one after a routine check a few months later showed it was bunged up solid.  "Often happens after a complete change of carpets, Sir.  Sometimes we can just clean it out during the inspection, but this one is beyond redemption."

We burned out a heat pump by not changing the filters after putting in new carpets. It does create a lot of shit floating in the air and I guess those filter things really work.

I'm so glad I don't have carpets. Just a few rugs. And I've had those for ages. The one in the bedroom might need replacing, actually, but I'm in no hurry. After all, I only sleep in the bedroom, so who cares?

I don't have any carpet, either. It's much more fun to see the dogs wipe out on the wood floors when they take a corner too fast.

This house only has carpets in the FROG and on the stairs leading to it. So, mostly tiles and laminates. Easier to keep clean, as well.

I received a sign from above last week..My grocery store had nicotine lozenges on sale for 50% off I bought 2x 8 packs of nicoret quick mints for $54 instead of $104...

Just fed up with burning my money.

On the plus side I've reduced my alcohol intake...

Just think, if you'd just quit cold instead of faiing around with a halfway-house, you'd be $54 better off.

But if it works for you, well done.

Fair enough,this time around I'm not cheating at all. I've noticed my stress and anxiety levels have improved.
