Came in right on time for caaaaaaakkkeee!

Had a good day, but I just don't have my normal stamina back yet. Today's group wore me out. Got a challenging week, but it will be fun and we'll get her done.

But I can only see getting her done sober, so I better sign up for another 24 hours of sober goodness!

Venuscat - I agree! The Rocky series is great. The Original Rocky movie came out when I was 16. I was skeptical when Rocky Balboa (i.e., Rocky VI) was announced, but in many ways I think it is the best one.

So, as an OG, I am kind of partial to this clip.

Josh, very sorry for your loss. Take care of yourself in the upcoming days. You will miss him a lot, but you should be proud of yourself for grieving sober.

Mera, happy to see you here! My kids really like when I step it up with the dress and make up too. My daughter and I are curling our hair tonight.

My son is not easy and as much as I love him and try to help, most of the time I feel lost and helpless. What we're trying isn't working. I am just left with accepting and loving him but I so want to prevent him from hurting himself. Please God give me patience and guide me in helping him.

He threw another curve ball tonight and on top of my tough day I was very tempted to react emotionally and dull it all with Xanax, but I'm not going to. I am making a commitment for another 24 hours clean and sober.

Congrats to the milestoners, you all rock!
