After 7 days and 6 nights of being at my sister Marion's place helping her out I have to admit I'm EXhausted BUT I'm really glad that I could help her out actually there's no one else in our family that could've or would've anyway it always lands on me it's different staying that long somewhere even if it's family because they have their way of doing things and I definitely have mine and sleeping in the living room in a basement apartment was difficult especially with the fridge kicking in and the thumping noises from the apartment above even at midnight Aaah it was EXtremely wonderful to sleep in my own bed last night I slept until almost 8 o'clock  Hopefully Marion's drainage tubes will come out today it was very close yesterday but she's got Red Cross that will do it plus the extra mural nurse will come as well Marion is doing great and wanted her apartment back as badly as I wanted to come home  I feel like I've been on a 3 week drunk but I haven't had a drink in 7 and a half years BUT I still remember that horrid hung over feeling I'm so glad that I don't drink anymore and I'm so glad that I don't smoke anymore as well, Marion lives in a building that allows smoking so every time I stepped into the hallway to do her laundry or whatever it was like stepping into a disgusting icky giant ashtray it was gross BUT yet I have to admit that a couple of times over the week I actually thought of smoking JUST ONE  BUT then reality kicked in because I don't do that anymore, when I was packing up to come home yesterday I noticed a 20 pk of cigarettes underneath the passenger seat in my car I actually opened it up to see if there were any cigarettes in it before I threw it the garbage bin it had to be my daughter's package because she's the only one that smokes that brand and has been in my car lately. Sticking with N.O.P.E and vigilance guarantees us a Smokefree Life and I always want to remember and N.E.F  - Never Ever Forget those early days and weeks of quitting smoking because another Day ONE would totally suck big time BUT each and every Day WON is the gift of LIFE !!!!!! Our quits are firmly in our grasp so let's treasure the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves because our lives literally depends on us to look after ourselves because if we don't nobody else can do it for us ........I posted this pic of Marion again she'll be 55 on the 23rd....
