good on you for giving up smoking! that's so hard to do. my brother-in-law has been trying forever, and he just can't kick the habit!

and i forgot, yes, the kids make me laugh at work. but not all those policies from admin/board of ed/govt, and parents who are never satisfied with all you do. *sigh* starts back up tomorrow...

I'm going to have to look up a copy of Lost Lake. I've read several of Allen's other books and loved them. I don't buy into her blend of magic and spirituality, but they are such beautifully written stories that you feel you are right there in the pages with her characters.

Do any of your friends still smoke? I wonder if quitting had an impact on your life beyond how much better your hair smells.
