She quit smoking 6 yrs ago, I think it'll be good for her and Dad to live closer together I'm going over tomorrow to help him pack alot of the light stuff I'd go today but I have Mason at noon because there's no school, I think I need another mini vacation but I don't have time for one but I sure did enjoy getting away the other night, it's wonderful to be an Ex Smoker to be able to go anywhere, anytime, whenever, wherever and however without the crutch of cigarettes.
