Hello Augustites and Mr. Natural

Jodie, YAY!!

Grace, hope you enjoy your holiday at home!!

Wellll we closed on the house today!!!



Now we have a lot of work to do, but glad for it.

We went to dinner to celebrate, to a steak house and I had beef tips which were very good.

Now we are excited to get moving, finish up packing, and get started on life in our new home.

P.S. I was in the edit mode too long and exceeded the time limit. lol.

I wanted to add that we'll give our 30 day notice here May 1 and that gives us about 6 weeks to pull this caper off. There is lots of sanding and finishing of floors to be done over there! We picked up a sander today after dinner and then hit a meeting. A wonderful day!!

Night all!

Good morning from me at at home. I've got a busy day ahead fence paining.

Stairs, I'll enjoy it thank you. Congratulations on the house closure, I'm really pleased for you. New house, new start, all good.

See you later, mustn't stop progress.

Stay safe and sober

Gxx

JUST FOR TODAY, I will refrain from improving anybody but myself.

Good Morning all

10.3o Fri and I've got a very busy day, so not really got time to post but I will catch up some time this evening.

Love to you all, stay safe and sober

JUST FOR TODAY, I will do something positive to improve my health. If I'm a smoker, I'll quit. If I am overweight, I will eat healthfully - if only just for today. And not only that, I will get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even if it's only around the block.

22.10 Fri

Hi again my little August family

All quiet now,phew, just the usual busy Friday with the g.children, parents etc. As the weather is getting better now, it doesn't seem fair to plonk the children in front of a d.v.d while I sit posting all afternoon, so I took them to the park and let them run wild for a couple of hours, worked a treat, my three year old is well away and has been for a good while zzzzzzzzzzzz.

LLG, always good to see you, I'm glad all is well.

Thanks Dee, my day was good, yesterday I got quite a bit of boring fence painting done, not as much as I hoped to thanks to heavy showers, but this time last year I got none done, so that's progress! Today was good too, I'm tired now, but in good way. You have a good week end and I hope you're okay too.

Bruce, lovely to see you still checking in, I hope all is well with you too.

Apple, thank you so muchxxx. Where the Hell have you been woman? I've been worried about you, I hope everything is okay. What have you been up to, are you still running. Sorry about all the questions, but seriously I have been concerned.
Oh and a few of us have started posting in the 'One year and under' thread, if you fancy joining us, it's very busy there though.

I can't believe that I am on 8 months, it seems sureal somehow. When I look back to how I was last August my life has improved considerably and so have I, it's still full of ups and downs, but I deal with them now. I don't think I would be where I am now if it wasn't for the support I've received from you my August family and Dee and S.R, so thank you to you all from the bottom of my heart. xxxxx

See you all tomorrow

Sleep well

Gxxx

Day 69

Work has been BUSY and filled with learning lessons this week but its still all good.

My son is teething and fussy but thats what happens. I took him on a 30 minute stroller ride this morning around the lake. He enjoyed most of it.

I've been really motivated about counting my calories this week and am down 4 pounds! I have 30 to go if i have it my way

I'm getting ready to go to my ex's again for the weekend and I'm starting to not be too sure about him being my ex anymore lol.

Anyhoo, hope everyone has a great sober weekend as well, I'll be back

Hi all and a late check in from me. The weather has been gorgeous and I've been very productive doing more fence paining, I'm sick to death of fences now and green paint, I'm aching all over and 'cream crackered'

You're doing well LLG and well done on the weight loss.
Ooooh wit woo, you and your ex, take it slowly, don't rush into anything.

Stairs, congratulations on 8 months.

Apple??? Stop lurking and get posting. You know how I worry.

See you all tomorrow

Sleep well

Gxx

11.20 and good morning

Just doing a few posts before I go out and paint a bit more fence,

Don't worry about the housework Jodie, if its anything like mine it will still be there tomorrow. Ouch your toe, I hope it soon heals, it sounds like your enjoying yourself anyway. Good luck with the car hunting.

Back later

Stay safe and sober

Gxx

*****

Just for Today: I pray for the willingness to change my old ways of thinking, and for the ability to overcome my fears.

Hi August people, Jodie and LLG and Grace and Bruce and Apple and everyone else, where is Steve? and of course, Dee!

Congratulations to you too Grace!! I feel the same, sooo much better than a year ago at this time. It is amazing.

I am headed over to the new house to continue project clean up and deodorize, sand strip and finish, etc etc etc.

O.M.G it looks a bit like the olden days when more than 2 of us posted, lol.

Hi LLG, I'm getting there with the paining, rain stopped play today but I'm home tomorrow so fingers crossed for some sun. Day 70 is huge, I can't believe how fast the time has flown by.

Thank you Stairs, sounds like you have plenty to do to keep you busy. Steve's been posting on the 'one year and unders' but i see he's checked in today,we were missing you, you see.

Hi Steve, fancy seeing you here, go get some sleep.

See you all tomorrow, sleep well.

Gxx
