Happy happy birthday, Keets!! Sober birthdays rock!

I turn 35 this month and despite my sometimes on and off, have enjoyed several years in a row of sober birthdays. The best. Enjoy!

Happy new year!! Hope everyone's night was fun and this morning was hangover free!!

Hey Kiki, welcome back. You know the drill, pick yourself up - dust yourself off - come up with a plan.

Hoping for some good sleep tonight - looking forward to tomorrow.

Happy day all. Up to 9th page of this thing of every significant event, how I felt, age, where, when, how, why- psycho stuff. Think I'll go paint again.

Many Happy Returns Keets
Welcome back Kiki

Guys, It's really my hope that this is the year any Marchers struggling will find whatever it is you need to make your recovery permanent.

It'll be a great thing to look back on this time next year

Morning! Happy belated birthday Keets!!

Last night was my Christmas with my girls. My oldest and her boyfriend recently bought a house and they hosted us there for dinner. It was really nice to have all of them in one place and to just be able to enjoy them. My Christmas gift from one of my daughters was a wooden shelf that she had made herself that holds all of my tea canisters - I will try to post a picture....the thought an effort she put into it literally took my breath away.

Today and tomorrow are days off for me and i am going to enjoy just relaxing and doing as little as possible.

Well I'm off to find some startin' fluid....

Hi all and happy belated New Year. I'm in (rainy) San Fran today. I must've passed on a hundred drinks by now. Feels OK. I miss it sometimes, won't lie.

Friends and family are wondering, but so it goes. We were out last night and my wife actually handed me the drink menu. Uh, no thanks. Not sure what she was thinking just then. Trying to help me look normal??

Happy BD Keets. I'll be looking for the famous Red masked Parakeets of San Fran this morning.

I can't type on these tiny screens so I'll keep it short. All my best to the Marchers. Next stop Silicon Valley (ugh) then up along the coast.

Love to you all.

What's up, Marchers! My A.D.D.is in full effect so I apologize in advance.....

For our Australian friends: Gn'R has tour dates in Australia coming up in February if anyone is interested....just fyi....it's a pretty kickass show! (Expensive, but awesome!)

Today my full time job is closed but I go in at 11:30 for a 4 hour shift with my four legged angels....and a bonus.....the CEO will be stopping by with guests for a visit....during my shift while I'm there by myself! Yeah, no pressure, Purps! All the more reason to go in with no hangover ~ already been to the gym & gonna pick up some startin' fluid on the way. Probably not a bad idea to show up a little early?!?

I'll leave you guys with this....it's a Godsmack video ~ very helpful for anyone looking to for motivation to get pumped up for the gym...(the drummer is my hero!!! )

Good morning, class!

Sam, what an incredibly thoughtful gift. You have some good girls you raised.

Pelagic- I'm so proud of you. Pretty soon, not drinking will be your normal and it won't be awkward.

Applekat- I isef to love the day the kids went back to school, lol. Seemed the chaos slowed a bit.

Purple- thanks for the video! Great start to the morning.

Have a great day!!!

Kiki- so glad you're here. We miss you when you're gone.

My drink of choice was chai black tea. I'm currently using coconut sugar for sweetener. I really like it and it is paleo- yay!

Off to meet a friend for a walk. Talk to you all later.

I missed you guys too. I'm so glad you're all still here!
