Sober Weekender Thread April 16 until...
 
I don't know about you but my pets have seen me in the best and worst of times. Yet they love me still! I cherish that love. I learn from that love. Because it reminds me that I am still lovable. And so you you!

As we make our sober way this weekend feel free to share a pet picture of those that you love. Even if it's not yours but fun to share.

To our newest members we are here every weekend to support each other living soberly during the weekend when it is the toughest for many here. Including me. I really need this thread this weekend.

So jump in. Know to post on the main board if you need immediate support. This thread sometimes gets its own rhythm and we don't want anyone missed.

Can you hear it? I do!

Welcome to your sober weekend!!!

:bus :bus :bus :bus

First of all I'd like to thank the academy, my parents and especially my wife.
I figured this thread would be rolling by now. I logged in the report my nicotine free days.

But I suppose I'll take SHOTGUN too. :tyou

also, it's a day for yard work - tree trimming (maybe if my tree climber shows up).

Tonight I'm going to see this guy. The JAZZ FEST covers it all I suppose.

Hey hey weekenders!

Greetings all. I am delighted to jump on board early this weekend.

Great intro K - many thanks as always for starting this thread. Pets keep us sane and how we relate to them speak's volumes about ourselves. I will attempt to post a picture of my old dog later.

Well done on shotgun Mr LBrain, aka The Dude! Hi Bmac: hopefully you can find us some good driving tunes on the radio.

Hey ho, lets go,

B

LBrain 04-16-2015 05:49 AM

well Bmac... how about another one from Pat Travers...


Mark1014 04-16-2015 05:55 AM

Good morning gang. I'll be going out of town this weekend for business and take comfort in knowing y'all are here if things get tempting.

Workout done. Breakfast made. SR check in accomplished. I'm ready.

Have a great Thursday all.

Tang 04-16-2015 06:03 AM

Pets make me happy. Thank you.

Ruby2 04-16-2015 06:06 AM

Travel safe FaD.

My alarm is still on snooze and I'm still in bed. Cats took off for the kitchen the second the alarm went off because they operate like that. Food. I'm nothing but a meal ticket for them. They are awesome though. Seem to sense if you're not feeling well.

Best go feed them. I work today with report card pickup afterwards. Get to meet with the teachers.

Saving my yard work for Saturday. Looks like its raining today.

So good morning. Happy Thursday all. See you later.

MidnightBlue 04-16-2015 06:26 AM

immri 04-16-2015 06:28 AM

Oh and love that there's some pets saying hi :) my dog is my world I so want to post a photo but he's kind of well known in my area haha
I'm 90% sure more people would recognise a photo of him than a photo of myself!

Hello Sober Enders!!!!
Happy Thursday!

I do not know what I would do without my pets, such unconditional love they give.

Looks like summer has arrived in the PNW, as it will be in the 70's here this weekend. So, a trip to the beach is in order. And I really must get to the garden patch to get things planted for the season. I apparently have a busy weekend ahead.

Here is a picture of my pup, pretty much the happiest dog on the planet. He brings me so much joy!

Be well sober peeps!!!
:)

Totes In!

Tax season is over so I have to figure out what to with all of my time! :a122:

My AV wants to make a party of it, but he's a dipsh!t and I don't listen to him anymore. :)

If the weather is good I expect to be in the yard quite a bit.

Be well and sober, Y'all! :You_Rock_

immri 04-16-2015 06:50 AM

Thanks!
 
It is so good to know I have a place to come for encouragement! I will definitely be stopping by here to get through the weekend! IF I can do it, it will be my FIRST sober weekend since I can remember!!! I am counting yesterday as "sober day number 1"! So want to keep this going!!!! I was amazed when I logged in this morning and saw all the new posts! It's so great to know I am not alone! I feel very hopeful today!!!

Hey OldGal! Welcome to SR. and the weekender thread! Please post as much as you need or want. We are a hang out spot to talk about the job of living sober on weekends.

You CAN do this. Share with us if you hit any snags. Before you pick up!

Ken

Good morning eveyone!
I'm in for another wonderful sober weekend.
Welcome oldgal...you can make this a sober weekend and you will feel so good. Stick with us. Check in often and post if you are having trouble.
My dogs are my constant companions and they make me happy.
Olive...your dog looks like such a sweetheart. They are all such precious babies.
Speaking of which. ..mine are patiently waiting for their morning walk. :)
See you all later.

Hello everyone!

I'm in and ready for my second sober weekend!

I have two tortoises who I adore :-) I had to wipe my phone yesterday so I don't have any photos of them on here but here's an adorable photo from the web!

Soberwolf 04-16-2015 08:17 AM

Awesome pic JaneLane

Riding roof sunny as anything live from SW garden

Ruby2 04-16-2015 08:22 AM

Love the tortoise JaneLane! Good to see you.

Tang, how are you doing?

OldGal, you CAN do this. But as Weasel said, post before you run into trouble.

Weasel, I don't know. I'm fabulous at fifty already. Working on the fit part. :). I missed going to the gym since last Saturday because I got the bug that kids had last week. Called in sick on Tuesday. Second time since first sober attempt in November 2012. Pretty good.

mecanix 04-16-2015 08:35 AM

hey Gang ,

Thursday afternoon in this remote corner of london town . Off down the south west to see family tomorrow 240 mile trip to get there . Aunt is going under the knife monday to have more of the cancer chopped out seems like she is leaving us by instalments , there is less of her every time i go and see her .

The gift of time bestowed upon me by sobriety is not being overlooked by me today and it is in the forefront of my mind .

These are the good times , this is the time of your life , a drunken or drug fuelled hot mess isn't really glorying in our days is it ?

Well thats how i feel today , we'll know more on tues as to if the surgery is too much for her or not , it's in the lap of the gods https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kO_w7GHMAUw

love you all , keep on the good fight , m

foryoumyson 04-16-2015 08:47 AM

I'm in !

I hope to clean my car this weekend hopefully I can find a baby sitter it needs real good cleaning in and out. I'd love to get a newer one just can't afford it at the moment. Cars are just so expensive even used ones they still want 10000 12000 with a car that had 80000 miles on it or more crazy . All I know is I need to stay as busy as I can this weekend ! I listened to an AA speaker meeting on YouTube last night it really opened my eyes and gave me a little motivation it was about fear and relationships pretty powerful stuff .

Ruby2 04-16-2015 09:40 AM

Foryoumyson, good to see you here. Glad that You've got weekend plans started. Check in your local neighborhood news if you have one for cars. Or seriously, if you attend s church or know someone who does, there really are cars out there driven by little old ladies only on Sundays. Sometimes families are looking to get rid of them.

Mec, my thoughts are with you on your trip. Cancer stinks. Have a safe trip. Are you driving your mum or is it not her sister?

BTW, Weas, I think you are fabulous even if you're not 50 yet.

Here's my Sofie.

This weekend planning on some 7 year old soccer, getting my nails done and leaving for a business trip - all better done sober.

Sofie is beautiful! I'm so desperate for a dog but I have awful allergies :-(

Your weekend plans sound lovely!

that video was blocked for some reason...
so here is another link to it:

I went to the box office - no way was I gonna pay jackitmaster an extra ten bucks for concert tix.
I got 8th row center for the Tedeschi Trucks Band tomorrow night... plenty of youtube on them.
Maybe MesaMan will come up with something from Red Rocks by them...
It's actually pretty cool in this small 'city' being able to drive up to the window to purchase tickets for shows. Face value, no extra fees!
