I missed a lot of the last thread, too. I started to go back and read but I have to get ready for work. Sansa, don't even get me started talking about Trump! If he becomes the president of the U.S., I will be looking for another country to live in. I hear Australia is great, maybe I'll try that.
I'm still not doing great, so overwhelmed, but not drinking. That's the most important thing, I know. I just am not sleeping well at all, keep waking up thinking about all the things I'm not getting done. I want to make a list and put it in a box and call it my "God Box". Everything you put in it, you have given to God, and you just remember that every time you start to worry over it. Then, I can also make a list of things I can get done today and do them!
It was nice to see some posts from some of our temporarily missing folks. I wish I had the time to get really involved, answer each post and send more support. I do read most of them and am hoping each one of us stays sober today.

I forgot to say, tonight we start our move, so I may be offline for a couple of days. I may leave my computer here and check in when we're at this house, but there may not be time. We will see. Pray for me, please!

Nobody has been talking about Donald Trump. I was watching an interview with his wife Melania whilst posting on here. I just posted something like "OMG Wow I just watched an interview with Melania Trump. I will say no more"

LOL @ you will look for another country to live if he gets in lol. He is a hot head in my humble opinion. I don't believe he will get in.

I like the sound of your god box. You should do it. I know its easy to say, but try not to worry. Write a "to do list" or write and post in a god box and prioritize. Do whats most important, and finish it, don't start of something else until job 1 is completed. Well, that's what I try and do.

Your move will go fine Karen. Don't worry. Its a couple of crazy busy days then its done. We all do it.

Hey February class! Still going strong (ish) here day 34 ��
Missed loads, haven't been on here much, but hope we're all doing well wherever we are mentally/geographically/recovery wise! I'm definitely noticing not drinking on the weekend now has become a new 'habit' it doesn't enter my head to think of drinking at the weekend as such now but it's still definitely my danger zone, once I finish work. Hopefully I will remain strong and so will all of you. Be good! ��

Just caught up as well.

My fun takeaways while yawning away after a non-restful night of sleep are Cococo sneaking her dog into a hotel, and y'all and Yankee Doodle.

I also will write y'all but I don't say it out loud. Lol.

Day 5.

Also...knb if you're reading...consider coming back today. Even if you don't think you need us for a sober weekend, we need you.

We all need the most support we can get. And yes some of us are sensitive souls. God forbid we use it as an excuse to drink. I'm glad OOTT sounds strong about it.

Group hug y'all!

Here's to a sober weekend everyone. I'm actually suprisingly enjoying sober weekends. Who would've thought it?

I got all frustrated trying to get ready for work and I can't find anything! So, I decided to do a reset. Cup of joe and some SR. Feel better. Thanks for all the well wishes! Off to a long day, feeling good though! I love the place we're moving to. I promise not to say anything else about the Trump guy. I have seriously strong opinions and this is surely not the place for them! Hugs and happy sober day everyone!

Good luck Karen!! And thanks for the PM by the way.

I'm slowly coming out of my funk but have to be on guard for feeling too good if that makes sense. Jeepers.

One thing that may help is apparently we will get some 60 degree weather next week.
