Love the fireworks Shevie. Hummy I saw the pictures. AWESOME! I want to go now. I wonder if that was the run she took for me. :quest: I banged on the door but I think she is still sleeping. No answer. Maybe Shevie could get the dogs barking or something. That might wake her up. Speaking of missing people, has anyone seen Cheryl?

Thanks Cheryl. I knew you would be here. :) Your room is right next to mine and we have a perfect view of the island. I can wait for you to get here. Hummy is down on the beach but I'm sure she'll be back soon. She sent me a message in a bottle so I know she didn't forget. Luna is river rafting for me! I've always wanted to go and she is taking a ride down the rough waters for me! How exciting. She'll be back too but will probably be wet. The 6-12 club just hasn't been the same since they left. I am so glad to be catching back up with them. Now the parties can begin again! You are next my good friend! Two more days! We will have a party for you. I had an awsome one year celebration everyone. The day was perfect and I really enjoyed it. Thank you for all the kind words you all sent my way. We are such a special group of people. Each and every one of us. ((((HUGS)))) I'm off now. I still have mountains to run through before I head back home and back to work. One more day of celebrating before it is all over and I plan to make the best of it. Then we will get ready for Cheryls party.

Hummy is out putting the finishing touches on the decorations for you big party and I think Shevie was getting all the fireworks set up. It is awesome that you are here. Wait until you see what everyone has been planning for you. You are just going to love it! BBQ, potatoe salad, chips, watermellon, fire works all in your honor! This is going to be the best 4th of July EVER! Welcome to the VIP Club. Now we can go exploring together. (I've been waiting for you :) ) Congratulations Again my friend! You are AWESOME!!!!!!!!

You know. I believe I am finally OK. I'm at a lost of words for what I am trying to say but something happened that weekend that I hit one year quit. It was an awesome weekend and I really enjoyed the celebrating and the company I was in. Something inside of me changed that weekend. I no longer feel the same. I really, truly feel free. I have felt free for a long time. Freedom of the "need" to smoke. But now, I feel free of the "want" as well. I've had a couple of stressful situations that really upset me but smoking was the furthest thing from my mind. I haven't been around the site much lately. I have been popping in from time to time to see if maybe I could help someone but really, the others seem to be doing a fine job and I don't feel as needed here. I believe I have just taken another step in my smoke free life. I am stepping away from the SSC a bit. I'm still around but because I want to be not because I need to be. I will still pop in and don't have any intentions of leaving. I just wanted you to know if you don't see me around much that it is just because I think I am finally ok with all of this. Life is good and things are really looking up. I love being a non-smoker and what I love even more is not missing it or wanting to hide behind smoking. This really is some journey. :) Cheryl... sorry to hear about your car but glad that everyone is ok.
