Hi Babs, good here, just tired, working long hours, lots of noisy neighbours in the holiday houses who party all night and don't give a sh** who has to work the next day cause they can sleep all day. .
Still one week of holidays to go.
Sober and cranky.

Love to all.

Yay for almost-Monday! I love your enthusiasm, Babs!

We just got home from a weekend away ... went to an NFL game. It was my first, and it was fun! Our team lost, but we still enjoyed it. We had absolutely amazing seats that dh had gotten as a gift from a vendor at work. Such a blessing! AND ... I enjoyed it completely sober. People all around me were drinking, but I truly was perfectly happy without it. I realize that will not be the case every minute of every day, but I'm really grateful that it's the case today.

What's everyone doing this week? Anything fun? Anything hard? Anything boring? Anything meaningful?

hi everyone !
My sister (only sister) is coming today and we are going to take off
to another town about a hours drive from here and spend the night with
her daughter and family. Looking forward to it.
Have a good one !

I had to break the news to my sister , she was very close to Lee , she lives up North , I think she would spend more time visiting him than me when she came home . She took the news badly , she hung up on me , it was a couple of hours later she rang back . It broke my heart talking to her. The whole village is in shock. He was very well liked . So sad.

So sorry for your loss, Aussie. It just proves no one is immune to the outcome of this disease. 50 is very young. I hope you are able to mourn his passing and embrace the reality of our struggles, and that you dont go into too deep a state of mourning like I did with my friends passing last spring.

Day 3 for me, based on my recognized need and the challenge of my counselor to go cold turkey at least until we meet again in 2 weeks. The time is here for a lot of reasons, mostly good ones.

Congrats on 3 years PBC! It was good to catch up last night reading here. Hey Dee! Hey mirage! Hey Babs!

Good night all!

Lofty so good to see you , good work on day 3 , sure hope you can stick to it this time , day 52 for me.

We are going to try and get away for a few days , its been a long holiday season for me and I am tied and worn down , physically and emotionally . It will be over a week before the funeral as there will be an autopsy because Lee was found alone and also his age , so an escape will be good for us both. Not looking forward to what we will be coming back to , I don't do good at funerals , I can't even watch one on TV without crying .

Love to all.
C.
