Morning overs, thank you for the congratulations.

Itchy, dogs are so intelligent, aren't they! Maggie will be waiting for Skylar for a while yet. She can feel your sorrow, too, as you know, and only time will heal you all, somewhat.

how are you feeling today Mags?

I'm ok getting a little additional annoying stress with something that should be straightforward. These days I just roll with it knowing I can do nothing else. In the bad old days yesterday would have been a 2 bottle night and I wouldn't have made it up at dark o'clock to do what I have to do to keep things on track. How life changes when we accept things and deal instead of feeling sorry for ourselves and wallowing.

Day 365 today. Received my one year chip last week. A very special lady who has moved was there to give it to me. She gave me my 24 hour chip.
Last year I knew I would die if I kept drinking. I had been on a 2 month bender. One week break before xmas due to hospital visit. Was starting a divorce-2nd one from AH- now XAH. So much has changed in one year for the better!
Of course I'm now having an issue at job of 3 months. I have a repetitive overuse injury in right arm due to working at post office for 29 years. New job is aggravating the crap out of it. Should have followed my instinct before taking it.
But at least I'm sober and I am asking God to help me make a decision on current job.
A good and safe sober day to all!

Hi Imvalentine and congratulations and welcome. Good luck on the decision making, trust your gut always!
Jeni, congrats and we'll see you soon!
Itchy, how are you? Poor little Maggie. That's strange that she changed her bark like that. One day at a time Itchy and get lots of sleep. Take some time and take a nap, maybe.
Pets really get under our skin....I still can't think about my childhood dog, Benji, without choking up, and he's been gone for over 20 years. He was a sheltie that grew to the size of a large collie. He was loyal and loving. He was my brother my whole life, until he got sick when he (and I, I guess) was 14. I'll never forget the day my brother took him away. We still have never talked about that day, it was just he and I who put him in the car, my mom couldn't even deal with it and my dad was away. One of my first memories is of Benji in his crate as a puppy.
Mags sorry you're feeling poorly....is there anything maybe in your house that you're allergic to? I know that allergies aggravate my asthma. I'm sure you've thought of that though...
So everything at work fell through. Nothing is happening that was supposed to happen, and now the future truly is uncertain, not my doing. Really disappointed, angry, and kind of panicking about my future because have you noticed that the newspaper biz is kind of tanking? And a few days ago 90 reporters at all levels were laid off from Postmedia in Vancouver, my home base and where I was planning on going back to........eff.
But, I'm trying to look at it as an opportunity and a challenge. Just sad cause I was sort of thinking of staying here a while, as you all know.
Anyway, off to get ready for work. For now, I'm grateful to have a job at all.
Have a good Thursday Overs.
It's been freaking cold here lately. Got a bit of fresh snow. Starting to look forward to Spring.

Inpar, some things just don't work out do they! Sorry things have gone a bit side wards instead of forward. I'm sure you'll soon pull it back on track and guide it!

Thanks Inpar, I've checked all I can in my home and don't think there is anything. Except the wet leaves outside on the paths, roads. They give off spores when you stand on them so I have to avoid them.

Congrats on 10 months, Jeni, and, one year, imva...cool beans.

Hello from the sunshine state. I arrived in Fl on Saturday and have been running and busy ever since.

Staying with my sister as I search out a place to live, work, aa mtgs that fit and a new gym with body-pump classes has me extra busy.

I now do two things when I wake up...
1. Ask the universe for the strength and courage to keep my new sober life...
And...
2. Hit my forehead and say, "Wow, I could've had a V-8." Haha, no...I say, "Why didn't I move here sooner?"

It is 8 degrees on the lake back in Pa as they awaite another snowstorm. I am searching golfnow.com for the possibility of an aft tee time for a quick 9 with the new pawn shop clubs I bought at an unreal deal yesterday. This place is a "let's make a deal heaven.

My best to all and I hope to catch up soon.

itch man....so sorry for your loss.
(((Man hug)))

Carlos

I am learning to just watch my dog (Rachel). She is teaching me how to spend my time. She takes a nap, goes outside, comes back in, plays, takes another nap, checks things out, patrols the yard, barks at who knows what, takes another nap, repeats, etc. and she is happy if her tail is honest.
I'm learning to let go and read the unfolding universe that comes to me, without me trying, or struggling, or striving. It all comes and unfolds right before me and that unfolding is the Higher Power's plan. Everything is just the way it is suppose to be. The challenge is for me to accept it.
Congratulations to all celebrating their milestones.
