Grateful to be going to bed sober, just like when I woke up.

Daisy, that’s scary about your step g. Daughter. I hope she’s going to be ok. I had an infection after my c-section and the dr had thought I might need another surgery, but then it cleared with antibiotics. I was so lucky

Opi, thanks for the new thread

Daisy, I hope your g.daughter is ok from her haemorrhage, you are an angel in having her 3 and 4 year olds. ❤️
And yes I think Astros ‘code snicker’ is ideal. Puts me off snicker bars buy hey, there’s plenty more cobras out there.

Grateful for another day sober. This has not been a productive day but it's better than being drunk.

Daisy, I’m glad your step g. daughter feels better and hope things continue to improve. That is so young. I hope the partner straightens up! So glad you and Mr DB can be there for her.
Grateful WO has another week of sobriety
Astro, I like your idea of prepping lunches for the week. I might try that. It’s so organized
Hi least and Aly

Grateful to see painted pebbles in a flower pot at the hotel. One said gratitude and the other was painted as a lady bug . Of course, I immediately thought of the grat pack
Grateful to play 2 games of 18 hole mini golf. Husband got a hole in one on the final hole during the first game. Sonny boy got the same for the second game. Pretty unlikely and lucky shots So we got two free games of golf that don’t expire for a year.
Grateful to be home. I don’t know if it was the rides or the food I ate or hormones or some combination, but I have been feeling pretty nauseous all day. Grateful to get back to my normal routine
Grateful to see my cats and not find any hair balls or carpet holes. Grateful for a good house sitter and double sided cat tape
Grateful for a good work out
Grateful for a hot bath, orange spice and valerian tea, and PJs
Grateful for each of you

Grateful Fearless is feeling better.♥
Grateful that Daisy's step g. daughter is feeling a bit better. Sounds like she's had a rough time of it, poor thing. Sending up a prayer and grateful Daisy is stepping in to help. I'm sure she must really be grateful to you, my lovely.♥
Least, that is one of my favorite "Rusty Sayings" and grateful Billie is doing better these days. She sounds like a little angel. ♥
Astro, hope work is better these days with your new arrangement.♥
Grateful WO always has a great attitude. ♥
Grateful for anyone I may have inadvertently left out. Everyone here is important! ♥
I meant to post earlier, all of a sudden, close to midnight, I woke up with my computer on my lap opened to this page, so sorry for the late post.
Grateful to be volunteering at ARF's thrift store tomorrow. I need another watch, so if I clean the watch cabinet, I'll be looking for a new one. Grateful my shift there is only 2 hours. Grateful for a new dog handling class on Thursday eve. I know at least one of my friends there will be there too.
Grateful for all of you and all the wonderful posts. Peace and love to all of you and esp to anyone suffering or struggling tonight. ♥♥♥
Grateful for all of my lovely and wonderful friends on this thread.
