If you can reign this in now, Ladybug, please do. I know an hour seems a long time, perhaps not just a craving, but the obsessing that comes with letting something go, but hold on....you are building sober muscles.

Most of what I read from my kids I could not remember receiving. And this was at a time where I didn't even think I was drinking too badly - yet I missed a lot.

I also found a wad of beautiful cards and notes from my lovely ex. It was hard going. Words of love and looking forward to more years together and happy anniversaries. Things I ruined by continuing to drink and took away from us. Some cards, a few - were little apologies, "sorry for yesterday, hope you have a better week"....no doubt some stupid argument with the root cause being because I drank, or one of the many deflected arguments I caused from drinking. You know what I mean.

I wasn't expecting to find all the things I did, but I made myself read every one. They are painful. There are still a few wads of school stuff of my kids things to go through, again, it will be hard, but it has to be done.
Crois, thank you so much for sharing this. You have no idea how much it helps me. I really do appreciate the advice Much love and thanks xxx

Hi to everyone else,

Been a busy couple of days, but doing well still. Yesterday I had some moodiness and today a few cravings hit, but I am ok now. Just keep playing the tape forward. I am always so happy when I wake up in the morning knowing I didn't drink.

Off to get dinner ready, Be back later!

Lol Snooz! I laughed out loud at that.
Babe, I'm in the dark ages here....no daylight savings.
Just finished the date with Michael....waiting for the Rose ceremony now.

Wolfy....thanks for sharing what you are reading (and your kind words!). I checked out that book, downloaded the sample. Might get the whole thing.

Hiya Wolfy , hi Leigh , Let and everyone

Crois , I thought Michael was going! Hmmmm looks like it may be team Sasha after all. But I don't think he can come up with that L word .

It may be Michael who wins. I remember seeing Sam on The Project before it aired and she said it will be a surprise to most people.

Hmmmmm better watch the finale tomorrow lol ....bring it on babyyyyy

Yeah, Michael is schmoozing all over her.

If she picks Michael, she's cray cray. Sasha is all man. 100%. And he's right, he's not pulling out the L word til it's right.

P.s.....thinking of you Leshar and Ladybug.
Pss....Bobby....with all this handy man stuff, when do we get some updated pics of your aquarium adventures?
There's a resizer tool you can use if SR is giving you a file too large message.

Good morning all!

Hope everyone has a great Wednesday! Starting Day 9 here Sorry for the monotonous day counting (Snooz & Crois - I know you don't like it), but it is helping me this time around
