MUCH better, thanks, Leigh. Seemed to lift in the later afternoon, but I had a horrible sleep. So going up now. I want to try to get up early to make my girl a hearty breakfast. Cooked the bacon tonight and maybe can whip up some quick french toast. She is doing basketball tryouts and was out until 6 tonight. 2.5 hours of grueling physical exercise, much of it in a squat! She hardly ate today because she was so nervous. Stiff competition this year. Might as well at least start the morning with a solid meal and some protein.

V, Why are they taking all of your trees??

Oops, I caught up. I see they are building. Yuck. Sorry.

Arbor, 5 months and 20 pounds!? Time flies.

Conquest, good luck! I wish we could see you! So happy for you.

No driving to do, V. She's just doing the tryouts at her school.

Yes, we have everything except ties for the guys. We just got our marriage license and it's so hard to believe that it's less than two weeks away!!! Ive had a serious case of "bride brain" lately, just hard to focus, wake up in the middle of the night, all the details are overwhelming at times. But I'm doing my best to just roll with the emotions. I wish I could post a pic, but the dress is ivory lace, a-line, knee-length, sleeveless...I bought a beautiful red coat to wear from the chapel to our reception lunch...and I decided to go ahead and splurge on help with hair and makeup. I really believe that it's going to be beautiful. I just wish it would hurry up and get here. Lol
Two weeks!!!! How exciting, Conquest. I wish that I could peek in a window.

Hi Arbor!

Things are good. Just moving along, trying to figure out my situation, fighting against the good and the bad. Definitely a tough spot I've worked myself into. I don't feel like I'm "in recovery" right now, but I'm still sober, so that counts for something.

I'm kinda getting used to my weight situation, and I'm feeling less and less like it's a problem, despite some evidence to the contrary. My therapist says I consistently do this - pick the evidence I prefer so as to support my position, and dismiss the rest. He's right, I know. I'm 98 pounds now, and a blood test showed muscle damage, yet I still can't quite bring myself to be alarmed. I still feel like gaining weight would mean losing control.

Anyway, I had a good visit with my family. It was a blast, as always. My mom gave me a giant bag of walnuts she picked from her friend's orchard, so I spent two hours yesterday shelling them. I tossed some in the food processor with salt and made walnut butter, which will be great in spinach wraps with some dried cranberries. Next batch I think I'll add some honey and cinnamon. I could also mix in some pumpkin for a festive spread, might be good with Brie. I'm also going to make spinach walnut pesto and freeze small portions for weeknight pastas. I love food. Weird, I know. I hope someday I'll feel okay about eating again.

Very excited for you, Conquest! I know it's overwhelming, but enjoy this time, I missed mine when it was over.

Sorry about your trees V. That's terrible. My neighbor recently took out the ones in front of his house, and I was so disappointed. They made the neighborhood so nice. I don't know what the problem was, they weren't that big and didn't flower.

Anyway, best to all you guys!

Hey Briar thanks for filling us in. Im glad your still sober moving along in that direction. I'm sure most would agree with me in that we would like to hear from you more often. Understandably you have a lot going on and I respect that. Just don't want you to feel like you can't speak your mind here. Your missed (according to me!)

Take care of yourself, ok?
