Trying not to worry, even though that's what I do best. As much as I don't want to bother anyone on a Sunday, there's a dog w/ a medical condition that I felt was getting worse & shouldn't wait until tomorrow. I contacted the department head who put me in touch with the veterinarian (since we suddenly have no manager!) Hopefully I did everything I could & medical staff should be there today. Next shift showed up to take over. Plus a new girl just started only a few days ago. Poor thing, I hope I didn't scare her off!

Sam I agree that we should plan that retreat ~ the best band in the world is writing a new album that should be out next year, so a tour should follow. I vote we go see the boys in concert and rock our asses off!!!

Looks like a cold has hit my house. I oiled us all up and have every diffuser in the house going. Another day riding the couch, I'm not at all sad about that part 😝

Hello March-Amigos.

Mish, great job - awesome!!

PR - Hope the household gets well fast.

Purp - hope that puppy gets well, too.


Had a quick trip to San Diego - a little fun and a little business. Made it up to La Jolla for a day, which is a pretty town.

Some reading (Hillbilly Elegy) tonight and then early to bed. Someone on the east coast thought an 830am conference call was a good idea - so that's 530am for me.

Have a good night

You do not read the posts do you, B? I inferred in a previous post you go out and about in a strait jacket. That was my attempt at stirring the pot, BUT if you cannot even bother reading my attempts to be sophitomocated and witty - well.............. (sniff)

It's TV time friends. An "Everybody Loves Raymond" night. No BBT.

Thanks for the sober day today!

Okay, phoenix. I read your bit about canvas and open backed with leather but I just didn't get it.

Have to run before bed. Was a busy and weird day.

Sweet dreams my sober friends. Have a great day, Aussies!

Morning class! Sitting here sipping some startin' fluid. A bit overcast out but it's supposed to clear up and be bright and sunny. This is a long weekend for us (Victoria Day) - one we used to spend camping and drinking. This year though it's pretty low key. Reminding myself how good it will feel to not be hung over at work tomorrow......especially when so many people will be.

Well off to find some breakfast. Happy Monday (as if that's a real thing..lol)

Hi y'all. Yowsers- bin mighty quiet round these here parts. Folks like it that away s'posing. Hope all are okay.
Lordy Sam- for Viccie, a day off? That is more commonwealth than us.
Busy day for me. (Jeez- watching Silence of the Lambs- very deep film) 2204 Monday now.
No sleep since Saturday night- feel okay strangely. Donated blood @ 0730. All good- BP/P text book perfect. Mr Vein 9the only one they can use) behaved well. Gave over a bag of blood in 7 minutes. The ID check and paper work took 20. Then counselling. Have made sure got a computer and with my new fangly smarty phone- internet access for when I go to next unit (no free wifi). Saved enuf to buy a TV and microwave- my counsellor driving me, no dept stores in the city that sell stuff like that.. No point in contacting ex about anything- so have to start again with everything- from spoons to bed. BUT I am safe, it is raining outside am I am warm. Launching into more recovery work- CBT pycholomology based work. Becoming more empathic to the plight of my natural 'Adam's family'. Every counsellor, psych I have spoken to for a long time have focused on them as being a cause of my f-offedness that led to drinking- not drinking being the root cause.
Have a good day, all.

Yes I could sure use a coffee jump start! On my second cup now...hoping it will be a smooth Monday & already thinking of what I want for dinner. Memorial Day coming up so I usually work holidays at my weekend job, but the person in charge of the scheduling is no longer there. Should be interesting.....

Gotta stay close to my peeps!

Happy Monday Marchers. Went to the docs today but my normal doc wasn't in so I had to see a visiting doctor. Nothing serious just headaches and low energy. She was asking about my medical history and I when we got to the "Do you smoke/drink?" question I said I don't smoke and drink and that I'm a recovering alcoholic. I kid you not she laughed thinking I was joking! I don't think she's used to many alcoholics saying that straight up. I was a little proud of myself that I didn't feel at all ashamed. Anyhow just had to share. I'm off to bed now. Love to all. xxx oh and I think a retreat is a fabulous idea xxx

Good morning.

I received exciting news last night. I am having another grandchild in November. Sophia will be a big sister!!

Weird day yesterday. I was pretty down. Not sure why except just depression. Was definitely the feeling that used to cause me to drink. I ate chocolate instead. Rode it out, got out of my head.

So - to make up for it - today is going to be amazing. BTW - I haven't really done the random 5 things either. It's not as easy as it sounds. Going to have to try harder today.

Have an amazingly awesome day, guys!!
