Hi everyone! Finally packed and ready to go. Now I get to sit here for the next 3 hours and listen to my 6 yo keep asking "is it time to go yet?" Lol

Will check in when I can. Wishing you all strength, peace and a wonderful Thanksgiving (for those who celebrate it). Love you all ❤️

Lucky number 13!

Stayed up way too late with my other addiction--video games. Home internet and cable is still down. Found out it is for the whole apartment complex. Supposed to be fixed by late this afternoon.

Work tonight. Life is fine right now. Going to go eat lunch with an old friend now. Wishing everyone a safe and sober day!

Hi guys! Friday afternoon check-in. I'm doing pretty well. Just a few fleeting drinking thoughts. Nothing big. My memories of how bad I feel after I drink are starting to outweight the lies that my AV tries to tell me about how "fun" it would be. Thank goodness!

MITA: I'm so sorry about your bad dreams! I hope you are feeling better!!!

SAM: I hope you're hanging in there this week. Thinking of you!!!

APPLE: congrats on 10 days! You're doing great! I hope you get some rest today. 4:30 am is EARLY! Congrats on your new niece! Tell your AV to shut up!

PELAGIC: I've never seen the "Truman Show"? Was it funny? Congrats on a week!!!

BOBBIE: Happy Freaking Friday to YOU too!!! Sometimes a NORMAL life is nice. I'm ready to have that too! I'm tired of the Higgs and lows.

LADYBUG: Have fun and savor every moment!!!

CASEY: Congrats on 13 days! 13 is a lucky number for me too! I hope you had a nice lunch!

I'll check back in later! Xo

Great clip, Kiki. Yup, it feels like that doesn't it. Farley was really something. It's strange what you remember: the clip reminded me that I watched Tommy Boy for the first time while travelling cross country to a conference in Montana (I wanted to drive). I stayed in a motel in Blue Earth, Minnesota, iced down a six pack in the bathroom sink, and watched the movie on cable. For a grad student that was high livin'. Weird memories I guess.

Welcome, Mish. It's good to see you!

Best of luck in your travels, MITA. When I go through airports my heart goes out to the business travelers. That would be a tough life. Not sure I could do it.

Day 8 and feeling good. Stay strong and sober everyone.

EEk! I am such a clever, clever person- I checked 'new posts' recently. Saw Class of march- clicked, read shared and there I was. Pity it was the '13 class not MY '16 class. So if anyone scrolls you will see where I ended up. Virtual blush. Still asked to continue with that thread- useful insights with people who have been around 454,972 years (well- 3). Thoughts and prayers to you all. Please note 1 thing has NOT changed- my commitment to sobriety and beards.

Day 14. Two weeks!

Work stunk last night. I hope tonight is better. Going to go in with the attitude that it will be. Fake it till you make it, right?

Glad to see you, Mish. And everyone else.

Time to go face the world. Sober. I'm not going to take that first drink today no matter what.

I was having some euphoric recall after work today.....a song on the radio started to give me the urge to play it on the juke box at the pub. But I didn't! I do need a nap, tho....

Naps and chocolate. We'd have world peace if everyone took naps and ate chocolate.

Casey, I'm told every day can be great, if you have the right perspective. I have a little trouble with that concept myself but often it does help me to remember that I get to choose whose storm I investment my energy. The "whatever" thought is amazing when people try and drag me places.

Naps....also amazing.

Home from my business trip...sober all week and feeling so much better. I can't seem to stop drinking water. My body screaming for help I think, so I'm listening. Good food, lots of water and sleep.

MITA - I was noticing in my cold sobriety that airport bars are kind of sad pathetic places. Travelers, lonely, getting their fix of cheesy airport style drinks. All I could think was....you know that cheap wine is going to give you a miserable headache in the morning. That chair is uncomfortable and the atmosphere stench. Why are we here....other than alcohol? Oh yeah...that is the only reason.

Hi Mish!!!
