Weekly Sentence reminder, some news...

Hi you!!  I haven't smoked in a week =)!!  It hasn't been easy but it has been a whole week!  Yay me!!  I am using the patch and that has certainly made it easier.  I quit once in my 30's using the patch.  I picked up smoking two years later, though, and continued to smoke another seven years.  Oh, don't ever think just one won't hurt when you are a smoker who has quit.  It DOES!!  I tried Chantix (a smoking-cessation drug) a couple of months ago and I got so darn sick on it I couldn't continue.  Wish me well and if you are a praying person, I would appreciate your prayers!

What I really came on here for is to let you all know is that the deadline for the Weekly Sentence Game is in about four hours.  If you would like to still play the letters are
JDATRP.  The deadline is 4PM EDT.   If you want to play click on the link below:
