One of the few heavier tunes I actually like !
Used to sing it @ the corporate jungle while I was in a mine field of cubicles sorting out some corporate idiots pc issues or crawling around on the floor dragging CAT-5 cableing (network) looking for an active port.......
I made a joke using the song title in relation to SR once while some heated threads were going on and got booted for 3 days...

LOL!

I signed on after reading yet another bitter, angry, resentful, judgemental, assuming, egotistical and holier than all effin things living or not email from my brother regarding Thanksgiving. The guy has apparently forgotten what Thanksgiving is all about. I was going to post about it but this will have to do. Looks like another crappy alathon here in the one horse town I call home for now.
I should be grateful that I do have some place to go and will be with friends who wont treat me like he does. I have a better life today regardless of what he thinks and says. I have a roof over my head, food in the fridge and my cat is happy. I dont have to drink or drug over my feelings about the situation and him as I have done in the past. Honestly, it still hurts that he behaves the way he does but I kind of expect it from him. I know I cant change my past or the way people think of me because of it and the time that it may or may not happen in MY timeframe. I cant imagine having his life and being so miserable about everything. I think I will call my sponsor and some AA/NA friends and get the hell out of dodge rather than responding to him at all.

Hi First, family members are hard to deal with, they can push our buttons so well.

Stay calm bro, you don't have to respond to his crap. Don't let him push your buttons.

frst (HUG) you are a good person. The best thx givings my son and i ever had were the ones we spent with good friends from NA who we spent the time with. It was so great! Now I go to family stuff and find it much less enjoyable (my good friends moved to germany!!!...again)

I hope some day to have goood friends here in recovery to spend it with cause it's a lot more fun!

Rain is expected here most of the day. I'll spend it in doing housecleaning and taking my mom to visit a friend in the nursing home and taking her to get a new vacuum cleaner. This would be a great day to change the kitty litter too.

Will probably spend part of the day watching movies and relaxing after the chores and errands are done.

But the best way to spend today would be by staying sober!!

Thanks Stone, Lb, Nands.
I hope someday he will see that some of the "strained family dynamics" are HIS problem and are no longer mine. A year ago I would have fed into his crap and responded immediately. I have a feeling the rest of the family will get on him a little for being such a prlck. He seems to think my life isnt "together" as he puts it but I see things much differently. My rent is paid, I have income, Im not drinking or drugging and I at least have friends that care about me and my feelings unlike him.

At the risk of not venting my anger.....What a DOUCHE BAG he is !!!!!

I may have to accept it but I DONT have to like it.

i think acceptance and forgiveness are the hardest part of recovery. the most rewarding, but really tough.

so there. my two cents.

as far as the holidays - i say take what you want and leave the rest works ...
