Della, a woman of few words. But truly great words. We woke up. That's a blessing.

Wanting never ending happiness or numbness was what i was doing with alcohol , it didn't work .
Accepting that pain and illness are part of the deal with life made me happier about the whole experience .
Up's and down's they will happen but i can own it and live it fully sober which ever way the die is cast . There is no turning back .

Lovely sunny day in south london ,

Take care y'all , m

Mecanix, thank you for that post. I wanted everything to be happy and perfect but that's not realistic. By accepting life, warts and all, I stand a better chance of living a fulfilling life. No anesthesia needed.

woah! this almost slipped to second page. the bride was late coming home - IS. I sent sms,she decided to stop to get hair done with no apptmnt.
So the steak I had ready from the grill is room temp, I ate her share of the grilled shrimp. There is shrimp cocktail - 1/2 price nature garden cooked shrimp 6.99/lb I downed my first carpenter bee of the season with my tongs. Missed him 3 times before I hit him to the fence. There are about 6 buzzing around. Always a fun sport.
Turns out today is not my anniversary. It's next year - doh! Actually I got confused, the 28 is my sobriety date. the 30 is my wedding date. So I have one more day to procrastinate getting her a gift and a card and stuff. Still accepting donations.

And, not to change the subject, but I can't believe how well I sleep in sobriety. No wonder I felt like crap all the time when I drank. Rarely got a night's sleep. Now I sleep through the night like a baby. This morning I actually slept til 8:30...haven't slept that late in YEARS. It was overcast and rainy out so even the dogs slept late. Life is good.
I pray that I never return to that rotten lifestyle.

Brain, this thread slipped to the bottom of page two earlier today but I posted and bumped it. Now you have to do it again so that I get knocked out of the running for last post.

Your dinner sounds great. I had an omelet with taco meat and cheese. Salsa over all. I was having an anxiety attack from not eating and my body said "protein!" So I obliged. Now I'm resting. My son found a DVD which had video of him as an infant. We watched that together and I smiled hearing "aww! I was so cute!" He was cute. It was nice to hear that little baby coo again. On to Wednesday!

HaF, I'm not having restful sleep and im quite jealous. The stupid hot flashes are waking me up at 4ish. Husband doesn't help but he's heading out of town again tomorrow. Pittsburgh this time. No Orlando and sun.

Pittsburgh isn't a bad drive from here. I've done it before. Ten hours maybe? Was so long ago.

Anyway, everyone have a good night! Countdown to brains hump day thread.

well Della, I heard that song too.

HaF, I think I went for years without sleeping. I just drank until I could hold my head up - spilt many a beverage on the couch over that time too. But a lot of the time I would wake up and finish what was left- didn't matter if it was diluted with melted ice or what - and if I had to pick out a fly I did...
good night Olive.

Brain, congrats on your anniversary! Many ladies prefer it when their husbands do something nice for them instead of get something nice. At least I do...I have all the toys I want now that I am a grown-up.

Happy Tuesday, everyone. I already cannot wait for this week to be over.
