I'm taking off for the day just to get the hell out of here LOL    Can you tell that I'm a little bit Shack wacky?    seriously though I'm going to go visit my Dad and maybe we'll go out for lunch and poke around the mall some I'll stop in to visit my mother in law on my way home it's a tad bit chilly BUT since I'm living a Smokefree Life I don't need to be outside freezing my butt and fingers off trying to suck on a damned Cancer Stick coughing and choking and nearly horking up a lung or possibly even both because thankfully I wised up and bit the bullet and kicked the nicotine poison to the curb permanently it wasn't easy by any stretch of the imagination BUT boy oh boy it was absolutely Doable and totally worth it to be able to go anywhere anytime whenever wherever and however without wondering where to sneak off to suck on a disgusting yuckie (cigarette) I'm so glad that all of us can & will live a life of Freedom as long as we all stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance we'll be able CELEBRATE FREEDOM......

 Good Morning everyone let's CELEBRATE Freedom whether we're on DAY ONE or ONE thousand and ONE or two thousand it really doesn't matter where we are in our quits as long as we keep moving forward stacking up those precious DOF - Days Of Freedom so each evening we can look ourselves in the mirror and say YAY for another Day WON and that's definetly worth CELEBRATING! N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W will give us a Smokefree Life.....I'm thankful for this wonderful community and all of you my friends and Fellow EXers and most definetly EXtended family......

I've been in a funk lately I was really sick with a cold bug for roughly a week & there's a storm every wk end with another one possibly this Sunday church has been cancelled three weeks in a row plus my youngest sister decided to treat me like Sh#t this past Saturday because she wants to bring me down to her level she won't answer my phone calls so there's not much I can do about & I believe part of my funk is I'm beginning to get a little Shack Wacky I was talking to our friend Chris yesterday & we got talking about the cold and Winter which got me thinking about being Shack Wacky  I was without a car for awhile but we did get another one a few wks ago but with the snow and ice I haven't been going to far BUT Smoking isn't even a blimp on my Radar LIFE can be a total b#tch at times BUT we must not use any of LIFE'S issues for an EXcuse to relapse because relapsing isn't an option anymore NOT when our lives literally depends on us to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W.....Our buddy our pal our friend George wants all of us here at Ex to enjoy a Stressfree hasslefree BUT most importantly a Smokefree  Hump Day.....

Life happens whether we smoke or not so we must choose to stick with N.O.P.E - Not One Puff Ever and Vigilance N.M.W - No Matter What if we want to live a Smokefree Life it's not easy at times BUT it's necessary to be Free....

Wishing everyone a hasslefree Stressfree but most importantly Smokefree day ......

Church has been cancelled again today we've been in a weekend weather pattern this month the storms are hitting Saturday during the night and lasting through the day on Sunday this is the third Sunday in a row that church has been cancelled two Sundays ago was snow and ice, last week was snow this week is freezing rain hopefully February will break this pattern BUT at least S.I.N.A.O - Smoking Is Not An Option  because I don't do that anymore NONE of us has to do that anymore as long as we all stick with N.O.P.E - Not One Puff Ever and vigilance N.M.W - No Matter What then we'll continue living a life of Freedom.....

A little birdie told me you're having a birthday that's awesome let's CELEBRATE let's do a special shout out to our very own Nancy Youngatheart.7.4.12 for the best birthday ever because you deserve the very best that life has to offer. 

With willingness committment and perseverance you will make it through the roller coaster ups and downs and into that good place in your quit where you realize how much better life is without the damned Cancer Sticks BUT it's going to take time and effort BUT if you stop and think about how decades upon decades upon decades upon decades upon you smoked then it only stands to reason that it's bound to take time to feel comfortable in your own skin again BUT I can tell you through EXperience you can and will succeed it's not easy by any stretch of the imagination BUT thankfully it's DOABLE I made it through and I still have all my hair because I didn't tear it out although I felt like it at times PLUS I never ripped anyone's face off which I really wanted to several times   BUT if we've got the right Mindset we can do just about anything we put our minds to and quitting smoking should be at the top of the list of things to do for our health family and friends BUT especially our LIVES.....

I also really like my quit count today which is day 2020 in the year 2020 it made me smile  everyone that's on this precious quit journey makes me smile  whether you're one day ONE or day TEN or ONE hundred or a thousand days or more days or less days as long as you're on this quit journey it makes me smile because quitting smoking saves lives. As a child and now as a 60 year old I still enjoy the story of the little engine that could because it thought it could  and it did.......And that also makes me smile   it doesn't take much to make me happy.

To me our quits is a ginormous humongous magnificent big deal because it's the most spectacular splendiferous stupendous awesome GIFT that we'll ever give ourselves which is the GIFT OF LIFE because we all know that smoking kills and it doesn't matter who you are or where you live it's bound to catch up with you one way or another and that's NOT GOOD BUT by biting the bullet and taking back our lives from the clutches of the dreaded nicotine poison and by making it through the roller coaster ups and downs of moodswings and the lack of sleep to that good place in our quits then I believe we should be smiling we should CELEBRATE each and every Day WON whether you're just on day ONE which at the end of the day will be WON  or maybe you're on ONE or two thousand it really doesn't matter where we are in our quits as long as we all stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W THEN FREEDOM IS OURS.....I'm on day 2019.

My Mother would've been 80 today but come this Sunday on the 26th she passed away peacefully in her Sleep I was with her when the nurse checked for a heartbeat and pronounced her gone at 2 something a.m. we had her funeral on my Mother in law's birthday which is also one of my great neice's birthday, some days it seems much longer than 8 years and some days it seems that it was just yesterday BUT her health was so poor with so many ailments including emphysema from 50 some years of smoking although she'd been quit 6 yrs she ended up on oxygen 7/24 the last year or so of her life, I used to wheel her around pulling the oxygen tank behind us it was a big tank not like some of the smaller ones I see now.....I miss you BUT I know that you are at peace.

I feel so much better now BUT I really can't remember the last time I felt as rotten as I have with this cold bug BUT thankfully I don't smoke anymore because I'm sure if I was I'd been outside numerous times trying to suck on a damned Cancer Stick coughing and choking and nearly horking up a lung or possibly even both because I figured I needed that fix NO WAY NOT ANYMORE!!!! As long as we all stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance then we'll continue to reap the benefits of Smokefree living my chest still hurts some plus I'm still a little wheezy BUT I'm not sucking on the death sticks so that's one hell of a good thing PLUS breathing is essential to living I already have mild copd and emphysema so I'm so thankful that I'm living my Forever Quit and with commitment and perseverance everyone can and will be Free....Oops I almost forgot our buddy our pal our friend our Hump Day Camel George wants to wish each of you reading this a Stressfree hasslefree BUT most importantly a Smokefree Day.....

With the right Mindset we can do just about anything we put our minds to and quitting smoking is the wisest decision that any of us will ever make in our lifetime it's definetly the best gift that we'll ever give ourselves which is the GIFT OF LIFE and it's also the best gift that we can give to our family and friends and hopefully we'll have a much better quality of living to enjoy the little things in LIFE that's actually the the big things in LIFE because breathing is essential to living....I'm finally getting over this cold bug I don't remember the last time I've been this sick with a full head UGH both my ears ached, my throat hurt from a nasty cough and I felt like a Mack truck ran over my chest which was the most bothersome my chest still hurts but I'm not near as wheezy so that's a good thing I can't imagine lighting up a cancer stick I can't believe I used to back in my smoking days or at least I'd definitely would have gave it a try WHEW thankfully not anymore because I don't do that anymore! NONE OF US NEEDS TO DO THAT ANYMORE BECAUSE WE DON'T SMOKE ANYMORE......

With commitment and perseverance you will make it through the roller coaster ups and downs of withdrawals and moodswings and lack of sleep and you will make it to that good place in your quit where you realize how much better life is without the disgusting smokes, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that quitting smoking is the most difficult thing that I've went through BUT after finding this site and reading everything I could find right here it got me thinking that after 40 years of slavery to the damned Cancer Sticks and smoking at least 30 aday that of course it was going to be horrid at times and that it was bound to take time to relearn life without the cigarettes believe me when I say I had many horrendous cravings back to back that seemed never ending there were times that I'd be laughing one moment and the next I'd be blatting like a baby BUT thankfully with N.O.P.E and vigilance and the help of this community I made it and here I am on day 2016 and still counting and smiling at each and every Day WON.   I'm finally beginning to feel a tad better this morning my eyes are watering which is making it hard to see but I am feeling better....

I am still full of a cold bug each day I feel worse than the day before hummm this hit Wednesday my head is full and feels like the top of my head might blow off UGH both my ears ache and my throat and my chest hurt so if I'm no better tomorrow I'll get a hold of my Dr's office I'm thankful that I don't smoke anymore because I'd probably be outside at least trying to suck on a damned Cancer Stick BUT I can't imagine that I could BUT I used to back in my smoking days whew thankfully NOT anymore it's been 2,015  days of Freedom and even though I'm sick I still smile at each and every Day WON because LIFE is so much better as an EX Smoker Non Smoker or EXer it doesn't matter what we call it as long as we all stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W.....we've got more snow grrr church is cancelled I wasn't going to go anyway hummm church was cancelled last Sunday too due to a storm this pic is out of my livingroom window....

Vigilance!

Posted by Marilyn.H.July.14.14. Jan 18, 2020

We can and must make the choice to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W so we can be around to enjoy LIFE.....

My ten year old grandson Mason gets off the bus here everyday, on Monday he was really sick with a cold bug so I asked my daughter if he could spend the night and miss school Tuesday so I set up the vaporizer in the bedroom along with the infuser and gave him a hot lavender bath after Supper his poor nose was raw he seemed to be feeling better Tuesday I thought he went to school Wednesday but he wasn't on the bus when I walked out to the road yikes so I called my daughter and she said Oops I forgot to call she took him to the Dr's office and got a prescription anyway to make this long story short he's he's feeling much better now BUT I feel like a Mack truck ran over me especially my chest plus my ears ache and my throat hurts plus my head is full UGH BUT YAY for not smoking anymore because no matter how sick I was I'd be outside in all kinds of weather trying to suck on a damned Cancer Stick nearly horking up a lung or possibly even both because I thought I needed that fix WHEW thankfully not anymore because I don't do that anymore none of us need to do that anymore! Our lives deserves for us to look after ourselves because if we don't nobody else can do it for us and living a Smokefree Life is so much better without the crutch of cigarettes, I just remembered my 15 year old grandson Adam is getting off the bus here today this pic was taken just before Christmas.

N.O.P.E. & Vigilance is key to remaining Smokefree even when LIFE kicks us in the teeth we must choose to stick with our quits N.M.W. because whatever is happening will happen whether we smoke or not PLUS relapsing isn't an option anymore NOT when our LIVES literally depends on us to protect the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE.....living LIFE on LIFE'S Terms is living LIFE to the Fullest and it's definetly the best CHOICE EVER.....

You must stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W in order to EXperience the Freedom of living a Smokefree Life it's EXtremely difficult in those early weeks BUT it's absolutely Doable there's nothing BUT positives in being a non smoker there's nothing BUT negatives in going backwards to the crutch of cigarettes Relapsing isn't an option anymore NOT when our lives literally depends on us to quit and stay quit because breathing is essential to living! Oops I forgot our buddy our pal our friend our Hump Day Camel George wants to wish each of you reading this a Stressfree hasslefree BUT most importantly a Smokefree HUMP DAY.....

There's always a plus if we look hard enough here's a pic looking out my livingroom window this morning! It's pretty I guess Spring should arrive by the end of April so I'm looking forward to that plus it's been a pretty good Winter so far which has been great plus I don't need to be outside sucking on a cancer stick nearly horking up a lung or possibly even both because I don't do that anymore and that's a major positive  Life really is Grand without a Cigarette in Hand. 

 

D.E.B.S - Decide Educate Believe Succeed and with with commitment and perseverance you will succeed if you asked me if quitting smoking was easy? I'll be saying HELL NO!!!! BUT if You asked me if quitting smoking was worth it? I'm saying HELL YES!!!! It's up to us individually to make the choice to quit and stay quit and the good thing is that as difficult as quitting smoking is it's also very Doable. We can be there for each other through the good and the bad days BUT when it comes right down to brass tacks it's an individuals choice to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W or screw up a perfectly beautiful quit let's always remember and N.E.F Never Ever Forget how horrendous it was in those early days because there's no reason to back to to that horrid DAY ONE BUT we can continue stacking up those precious Days Of Freedom so each evening we can look ourselves in the mirror and say YAY for another Day WON.....

I want everyone to EXperience the Freedom of living a Smokefree Life because I know now that as difficult as it is to quit smoking that it's also doable even though you may not believe me if you're in the middle of a horrid craving I remember when I was in the throes of horrendous cravings and moodswings and lack of sleep and having cravings back to back that seemed never ending and I felt like I was crawling out of my own skin or I  was ready to tear my hair out or rip someone's face off anyone's face it really didn't matter who's face!!! YIKES I remember that very vividly I hope that I always remember and N.E.F - Never Ever Forget because I never want myself or anyone to become complacent and lose the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the GIFT of LIFE. It most definetly isn't easy by any stretch of the imagination in those early days and weeks of quitting smoking BUT after 20 30 40 50 or more Years of slavery to the damned Cancer Sticks it only stands to reason that it's bound to take time to relearn life without the smokes BUT it's so very worth it once you get to that good place in your quit where you realize how much better life is as an EX Smoker Non Smoker or EXer it doesn't matter what we call it as long as we all stick with our precious quits..... Here's a picture from this morning....

It's a chilly start to the day at-16 °Celcius or 3°F   I'm so glad that I'm not outside freezing my butt and fingers off trying to suck on a yucky cigarette because I don't do that anymore PLUS relapsing isn't an option anymore NOT when my life and your LIFE depends on us to stick with our quits N.M.W - No Matter What.....

I'm one of those people who live in a snowbelt and the last several years Winter has been a real b#tch Mother Nature would start dumping snow the middle of October it would just nicely melt then dump a ft the first of November and keep dumping it so that it's the end of April before it's gone last year was horrid BUT that's A OK because I don't need to be outside freezing my butt and fingers off trying to suck on a damned Cancer Stick BUT I do need to shovel the white crap BUT I don't need to stop for smoke breaks and nearly hork up a lung or possibly even both UGH I can't believe I used to do that BUT thankfully NOT anymore   we're under a Winter storm warning we're right on the line of a ft or more of that white Crap and or ice pellets with freezing rain possibly up to an inch of ice BUT it'll be what it will be at least we've had it fairly good up to now I'm just happy that none of us need to suck on those yuckies (cigarettes) anymore! As long as we all stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W plus let's always remember and N.E.F - Never Ever Forget that horrid DAY ONE or those early days and weeks of quitting smoking because another Day ONE would totally suck big time BUT each and every Day WON DAY WON is a GIFT of LIFE....I'm so thankful that with commitment and perseverance that quitting smoking and remaining quit is DOABLE not easy by any stretch of the imagination BUT DOABLE and so worth it....

I believe this picture of my grandson Mason was taken two years ago I believe it was mid February there was lots of shoveling that day BUT no smokebreaks YAY for Smokefree living and YAY for each and every Day WON.....

This picture is from March break just a couple of miles away from where I live my daughter pulled over to take the picture of the snowbank behind me we were on our way back from an overnighter with Mason.....I think this was two years ago too hummm or maybe last year!

We're all here in different stages of our quits and we've probably used different methods for quitting smoking BUT whether we're on day one or day one thousand or two thousand it really doesn't matter as long as we all stick with our precious quits if you are in the throes of horrendous cravings and moodswings and lack of sleep please hang on tight and continue to move forward because you can and will EXperience that glorious AHA Moment when you find the UMPH! YAY for each and every Day WON because LIFE really is Grand without a Cigarette in Hand so chin up if you're struggling with remaining quit  because it's going to get easier and easier with time under your belt and as Dale says keep them away from your face and the only way out is through.   

It does get easier and easier with time under your belt and it definitely gets better and better without the crutch of cigarettes BUT it does take time to relearn life without the smokes it's definetly not easy by any stretch of the imagination BUT if you stop and think about how decades you smoked and how every blessed thing you did was wrapped around the them then it starts to make sense that it's going to time to feel comfortable in your own skin again BUT you will as long as you stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W because it works when applied on a daily basis then there's absolutely no you will FAIL it's not easy BUT it sure is worth it once you get to that good place in your quit where you realize how much better life is without the Smokes.....

Making the choice to quit smoking is the wisest decision that any of us will ever make in our lifetime and remaining quit is the gift of LIFE so we can enjoy the little things in LIFE that are actually the the big things in LIFE..... 

If I was still a smoker I'm positive that after turning my TV on to catch the morning news and seeing the chaos that's happening plus the plane crash that killed 176 people including 63 Canadians just outside of Iran I hope the black box will give us the truth of what caused the crash!!! I would have been chainsmoking and instead of my normal 30 a day cigarettes today would be at least a 50 smoke day along with a major headache BUT instead I've just got the major headache PLUS relapsing isn't an option anymore it's not even a blimp on my Radar because my life and all of your lives deserves for us to look after ourselves because if we don't nobody else can do it for us and breathing is essential to living and smoking kills and it doesn't matter who we are or where we live it's bound to catch up with us so we must always remember and N.E.F  - Never Ever Forget that horrid DAY ONE because going back just isn't happening!!!!! All of this chaos in the world is going to happen whether we smoke or not so we might just as well stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance and continue to move forward with our precious quits N.M.W - No Matter What........

Our buddy our pal our friend our Hump Day Camel George wants each of us to take a deep breath or two and focus on having the best day possible Smokefree of course.....

Have you bit the bullet yet ? Are you reclaiming your life ? Are you kicking the nicotine poison to the curb permanently? I hope the answer is YES   I was playing around with words one day quite some time ago trying to come up with a phrase that goes along with quitting smoking > D.E.B.S. - Decide Educate Believe Succeed and Deena-A.-Yenni whom hasn't been around in awhile and is missed commented that she really liked it so I use it fairly often and it's really what we need to do in order to EXperience the Freedom of living a Smokefree Life it's EXtremely difficult to say the least in those early weeks BUT it's absolutely Doable and totally worth it to be Free....Anything in this life worth having takes time and effort and quitting smoking is vital to our quality of life because breathing is essential to living!

Here we are into the New Year and I'm  back to a semi normal routine Mark is off to the 1st full work week of 2020 and Monday is pay day for us   so I like that I wish each of you reading this a Stressfree hasslefree BUT most importantly a Smokefree Day.....


If you're struggling this morning stay close because we're all here to help you in any way we can if you're having horrendous cravings please blog HELP and wait for someone to respond  if you have to sit on your hands because you can't smoke if you're sitting on your hands it shouldn't be too long before someone responds and most likely there will be many responses we want everyone to EXperience the Freedom of living a Smokefree Life and as difficult as it is in those early weeks it's also very Doable and totally worth it to be Free.....

Life!!!!!

Posted by Marilyn.H.July.14.14. Jan 5, 2020

There's so much happening around the world my heart breaks for Australia and the half billion animals that have lost their lives so far with at least 17 people that have died with most likely more than that there getting a little rain today BUT not nearly enough and then there's the terrifying debacle that's happening between the U.S. and Iran which could cause another unnecessary war grrrrrrrrrrrrr!!! BUT  we have no control over either of these situations there's so much that we have no control over BUT thankfully when it comes to quitting smoking we do have complete control over whether we smoke or NOT so vigilance is key to remaining Smokefree the world can fall down around us and we can still remain Smokefree because Life is going to happen whether we smoke or NOT  let's continue to deal with life on life's terms without the crutch of cigarettes......

I've had some horrid rough patches in my early weeks of quitting smoking and there's been lots of ups and downs over the years since quitting I've been to a few funerals of people I've cared about and a couple of them were smokers and passed away from cancer one friend who died about 4 years ago was wheeled out of the hospital about an hour before he passed to have a smoke BUT like the nurse said it wasn't going to make any difference at that point! Let's stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W. let's nurture and protect the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE,  I still smile at each and every Day WON and today I'm CELEBRATING -2,001 glorious DOF ......

Each and every Day WON is pure freedom whether you're in your early days or weeks or months or years every day that we're Smokefree is a GIFT of LIFE, I never ever thought I'd ever quit smoking BUT finding out that I have mild copd was enough to scare the crap out of me and I finally realized that I wasn't invincible and my desire to live was so much stronger than continuing to slowly kill myself so I got on line and decided on this site and to make a long story short with the help of this community I made it through horrendous cravings and moodswings and lack of sleep to where I am today, was it easy? HELL NO!!!! BUT was it worth it? HELL YES!!!!! We must treasure our precious quits because our lives literally depends on us to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W.....I love enjoying the little things in LIFE which is actually the the big things in LIFE here's a pic from a couple of days ago my daughter Mandy Mason and I took off to an arcade for the day we had a blast I even played lazer tag it was awesome. 

Quitting smoking is definitely the wisest decision that any of us will ever make in our lifetime and it's definetly the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the GIFT of LIFE we must choose to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W because it works when applied on a daily basis then there's absolutely no way any of us will FAIL and we can and will be reaping the benefits of Smokefree living BUT FIRST we must get through the roller coaster ups and downs of withdrawals, moodswings and lack of sleep to get into that good place in our quits where we realize how much better life as an EX Smoker Non Smoker or EXer it doesn't matter what we call it as long as we all stick with our precious quit journeys.....

We must not let LIFE kick us in the teeth and allow ourselves to SCREW up a perfectly beautiful quit because whatever is happening will happen whether we smoke or not so we might just as well take as many deep breaths as we need and continue to move forward stacking up those precious DOF  - Days Of Freedom so each evening we can look ourselves in the mirror and say YAY for another Day WON the longer we're quit the easier it will get and it's worth all of the horrendous cravings and moodswings and lack of sleep once we get to that good place in our quits YAY for each and every Day WON.....

I hope everyone had a nice New Years day here we are moving forward into 2020 stacking up those precious DOF - Days Of Freedom right! If you're on the fence about quitting smoking or if you're struggling with remaining quit or if you think you can't quit please know that you can! It most definetly isn't easy by any stretch of the imagination I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it's EXtremely difficult to say the least because I had some horrid rough patches that I could've tore my hair out or ripped someone's face off anyone's face it really didn't matter who's face!!!! BUT thankfully I looked up quit smoking sites on line a few weeks before quitting and I decided on this one and I read everything I could find about this horrid addiction and I read some more and I kept reading then I set up a quit date BUT I wasn't ready when it came so I reset it then for some reason I totally forgot about this site until my 18th day when I was having horrendous cravings back to back and they seemed never ending I was about ready to drive to the store and buy a carton of cigarettes and SCREW just the pk BUT thankfully I remembered this site and got on line up until that point I'd been hiding in the shadows and hadn't let myself be known BUT that day I did comment on something and moody_9-18-13 whom hasn't been around in a long time suggested that I write a blog and say a little about myself and so I did and here I am   as difficult as quitting smoking is it's also very Doable and totally worth it to be Free ...... Each and every Day WON is a GIFT of LIFE.....

Happy New Year everyone this old Gram made it to Midnight and brought the new year in with my 10 year old grandson Mason old Gramp hit the sack at 10 o'clock but he worked yesterday, he's got to plow this morning I measured a strong 10 inches of the white stuff,  I've got to bake bread I took the last loaf out of the freezer last night, I make 13 loaves plus a pan of rolls every 8 or 9 days we don't buy store bought bread at all I'll get moving here shortly Mason is still sleeping he likes to punch the bread down once it's ready for the pans. Well I rambled on enough already about nothing once we've quit smoking and we've made it through horrendous cravings and moodswings and lack of sleep AND we've got to that good place in our quits where we know that LIFE is so much better without the Cancer Sticks we need to always remember and N.E.F - Never Ever Forget how horrific it was to get to here so we'll continue to reap the benefits of Smokefree living and go into 202knowing that as long as we all stick with N.O.P.E - Not One Puff Ever and vigilance N.M.W - No Matter What we can look ourselves in the mirror each evening and say YAY for another Day WON.....

Our buddy our pal our friend our Hump Day Camel George and I want to wish each of you a very Happy New Year which happened to fall on HUMP DAY We need coffee.
