HI everyone
To celebrate my 1st year of sobriety , I travelled to Sydney to participate in the City to Surf.. last year (2nd Year) I travelled down to watch my darling daughter participate (torture herself for her first time) ... this year... my memory failed me and in a moment of insanity I registered us both. So tomorrow I board a bus with a group of people (and my daughter) sleep in a hall on an air bed ... wake up Sunday morning before the sun rises ... catch a bus into the city .... shuffle 14km with 80,000 other people (and nope very little training for this) ... make my way back to the hall.... refuel...board the bus and head back home (5 hour trip) .... I REALLY need to find a less energetic way to celebrate my sober anniversary .... BTW my hockey team is coming 2nd on the ladder WOOT!!

Congrats to both Saskia and Calichris! Welcome to our little club

Wolfie & Drake, sorry you guys are feeling down. I went thru a little blue period myself last week...mine passed pretty quickly, sure yours will too.

Mags, hope you're feeling better.

Rusty, hope the foot is still on the mend.

Have a great Friday, overs!

Hi Overs, LO has had a very needy morning today! So just a quick hello. We are just now outside enjoying some fresh air. I have a decent sized summer squash growing and some tomatoes popping up.
Welcome and congrats to everyone who has recently reached a year!
Hope everyone is having a good day.

Hey all!
Been gone from here for five days!

First welcome to all newbies and congrats on making it one year. Before you are fully vested in good standing here, you must learn the secret Overs greeting, which identifies you as one of us, and is only given to other Overs. Here is a video of me, Rusty Zipper, and FBL, demonstrating the secret greeting moves.


OLL,
Having raised two boys, one of which we had to tough love the whole way I have some truth for you to take if you want. There is only one significant difference between good parents and child abusers - restraint! We all want to kill them and wring their little necks sometimes. Good parents don't act on those urges.

Toots,
Get a shovel! You're not his parent.

Gil,
Good posts all,

Mags,
I hope your chest is feeling better.

Wolf,
Good to see you hanging in there. And you are discovering the joy of sober routine. Your body and mind will benefit from your attenuation to your own circadian rhythms.

RZ,
Nyet??? Some good progress though.

FBL,
Glad you're feeling better.

IP,
Yes, you do have enough. A little sober routine and serenity prayer goes a long way. I envy your peaceful surroundings. Bring them inside of your self.

FG,
Again some wunnerful posts.

102 today, 103 tomorrow, 105 Sunday, and 106-110 Monday. Actual temps. Heat indexes much higher. Our little RV AC is only able to keep it in the 80's running non stop all day. Got the waste dump pump installed it works. Dirt pad and concrete finished today. Bushed, g'night!

Itchy I get fed up of having no summer, but I wouldn't trade you those temps.

Going through a bout of insomnia about 6 hours sleep in the last 48 hours. May fall asleep at the football!! Nah, that's not gonna happen!

Wolfie if you ever think of trading Mrs W in for an older, heavier, more annoying model....... Alternatively, just come to Scotland and give me a massage!! Lol asked hubby for one once, he half heartedly poked my shoulders for about 2 minutes then said 'there ya go'!!


Hugs Overs xx

Itch, even with AC I don't know how you can live in that heat. Anything over 90F here and I start to melt.

Have a great Saturday, gang!

Itch that is some heatwave! Grats on the progress and thanks for that truth
Toots sleep deprivation is the worst!! I hope you can catch up soon.
I unexpectedly went to a new meeting with the woman who was on vaca. Had a good talk and we're going to start working on the steps. I'm excited to finally have the plan in place now.
Hope everyone is well!
