I’ve got to Change My Evil Ways.

While in a rather depressed state for the last several years, I developed some bad, evil habits.

If I am to succeed as a goat herder/ fiber artist, I have to change these habits.  I quit smoking 33 years ago, so I know I can change bad habits.  When I quit smoking, I changed my everyday habits that always included a cigarette – well, not all the things I did each day, but quite a few.

For example, I always had a cigarette with my coffee in the morning.  So I stopped making coffee – I had orange juice instead.

I loved having a cigarette with a beer, so I switched to wine – these little things worked, and I was able to stop my 20+ year habit by making new habits.

Now, I can have coffee or a beer and have no desire for a cigarette!

So, these are the habits I need to figure out substitute for now – 1. Taking two hours after I get up in the morning before I’m ready to shower and dress and make breakfast – this is such a huge waste of time!  What do I do, you ask? Well, mostly I play Spider Solitaire – on the hardest level, and a few other word games.

I suppose I could delete these games from my Kindle and see if I can get myself up and out of the house to feed goats and possibly shear one or two before I need to shower and get ready for work.  It is summer, there is plenty of light.

I think this is the first thing I’ll work on.   But, first, I’m going to go play my two games a bit before I delete them!
