just caught your comment about exercise and fitness G. Just remember the look of the first ancient Greeks - Olympics. No weed wackers for them.

Gilmer, I remember Rodney Dangerfield saying something like " When I'm dead, I will be as healthy as the next dead guy." All things in moderation, not that any of us know what that is!

Glad that you had a fun weekend at the house Glee. There was a point in early sobriety where I wasn't sure if I could ever have fun again without slamming down drinks. Who knew how good it could be?

Carlos, is there a mock mint julep drink that you and JG could enjoy Derby Day? I have to admit that I never had a julep and don't feel that I missed out in life because of it. I hope you will dress the part of landed gentry to impress your new lady.

Have a good night all!

Morning all!

Woke up to no hot water this morning. Great way to start a Monday. I could go over to my in laws but I don't want to scare the heck out of them barging in their house at 3:00am. It's a small thing in the arena of life, but one that probably would have called for a drink in my previous life. Now I can sort of shrug it off and move on.

Have a great day all!

I miss Rodney!

"I'm so ugly, my father carries around the picture of the kid who came with the wallet.
I'm so ugly, my mother had morning sickness after I was born.

Hey, I don't get respect from anyone. Why, American Airlines thanked me for flying United."

Couldn't help myself!

With good luck I'll be home for lunch.

A safe refuge is one of the best sobriety supports. I intend to spend as much of the next 24 hours as possible under the blankets.

Have I mentioned before how much better my life is since I stopped drinking?

Speaking of courage, did you know the cowardly lion's costume in the wizard of oz was made from real lions' skins?

I've watched the Wizard of Oz eleventy million times, it used to be my favorite movie. There are two glaring gaffs I always notice (pretty good for a 1939 movie) and one of them involves that costume. Such a good movie.

C2, I'm glad it's almost over. You held up like a champ.

Happy Monday All,

Thanks a new clean sheet, Dee.

Courage headed to a duvet day. Wow, that sounds kinda nice.

Looking for a cool down of sorts - hit 97 here yesterday...that's even hot for a summer day.

Well, time to get this thing rolling. Monday is work, gym and AA...I make the worst coffee ever and they say it's good - not.

Feeling a sober thing for today - good day, all.

SR Carlos - hey, I see real Carlos tonight.

Hello All! Staying busy with the Basefit program, starting to feel the effects of exercise and being smarter about food choices. Having to log everything everyday is kind of a pain, but I know its what I need.

stay happy all!

You guys are so much awesome

I went and settled up the vet bill today. Still feeling heavy hearted and kind of empty and cry randomly. Got to a meeting tho which was good.

4 months today! I saw my counselor this morning which was so great.
Bittersweet days but I've come through my storms still standing so I'm doing good.
Grateful and clinging to happy memories for now.
Xoxo thanks for always being here and being so awesome you beautiful people.

I guess it's been a bittersweet day, Del.

Congratulations on your four month mark.

Job well done. You've shown a lot of grace under stress.

Deliza-full-of-grace. I like that! Congratulations Deliza on 4 months. If you can stay sober through these days, you can stay sober any day & every day.

I've slept 7 hours so far today and hope for another hour's nap before dinner.

And then early bed.
