Happy Memorial Day!

And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

Happy Mother's Day!

I am lucky enough to have the best mom in the world. But, then most of our mothers are fantastic women that do it all with a smile. Happy Mother's Day to everybody. I hope your day is filled with flowers and chocolate!

Quit Smoking Update

According to a little gadget I have, it has been 1 month, 3 days and 5 hours since my last cigarette.I have saved $132.00 so far and best of all I have added 2 days seven hours and twenty minutes to my life. My legs feel better thanks to improved circulation and it's much easier to go up and down stairs. On the negative side, I have gained 5 pounds. Quitting smoking has been hard, but not nearly as hard as I thought it would be. I still have strong cravings for a cigarette, but the cravings last for a shorter period of time.
