Thanks Dee!

I'm committed to 24 more sober hours! It's 10:44 in Florida. I'm struggling today. My boys broke a window at the check in station at the hunting camp with a sling shot. They are always damaging something and disrespectful to adults. It's very disappointing because I feel like all I do is discipline them non stop. I should have know better to let them even have a SS so I feel guilty. My boyfriend is mad at all of us because of this. I have call my employer Assistance program and the closest councilor for children is 35 minutes away. I know my boys past behaviors have caused a lot of my past drinking because it was a way to forget the present. But now I'm trying my best to face this and get them help and most importantly stay sober. I'm struggling because I have no support. Enough of my sad story :-(

Hugs

This is nice --

Set me whereas the sun doth parch the green
Or where his beams may not dissolve the ice;
In temperate heat where he is felt and seen;
With proud people, in presence sad and wise;
Set me in low, or yet in high degree,
In the long night or in the shortest day,
In clear weather or where clouds thickest be,
In lusty youth, or when my hairs be grey.
Set me in earth, in heaven, or yet in hell;
In hill, or dale, or in the foaming flood;
Thrall or at large, alive whereso I dwell,
Sick or in health, in ill fame or in good:
Yours will I be, and with this only thought
Comfort myself when that my hope is nought.
-- Henry Howard, 1500s

September 8, 2015, Milestones

Need to make a correction on my earlier milestones post:

CONGRATULATIONS!!!



Ringthedoorbell
3 months



My apologies to Ringthedoorbell for the earlier typo and congrats again to her, me (4 months), least (69 months), and Kaneda8888 (2 years) for reaching today's milestones! And, of course, congrats to each and every one of us for being sober today. Wishing everyone the best...

The sweltering weather has returned. Sweating out all the hibiscus tea I drank so far today.

Has anyone experienced the Monstera fruit? I have one and it's the most bizarre thing.

Have a good Tuesday.

Today we are covering the endangered Star Magnolia (Magnolia stellata). This small tree is endemic to the Tokai Floristic Region of Japan and grown for ornamental purposes. However, illegal collection from the wild by horticulturists is threatening this species. In addition, land development is also a major threat.


I always look forward to seeing each and every one of you here! I hope to see you all here again tomorrow!

VikingGF-I hope you know what you are doing with that fruit and make sure it is ripe. According to the food blog, it is a poisonous fruit. Supposedly it takes a year for the fruit to ripen. If it is eaten unripe, it can cause blistering, itching, swelling and pain, and possibly death due to the levels of oxalic acid.

Forgivemeall-keep on hanging in there. The thing is if you stay sober, you can better deal with what your boys are doing. Thinking of you and sending lots of hugs your way.
