Cool YOU CAN stay sober this weekend!! May 7- until....

When AV is crashing in on me starting midweek about how I am going to spend my weekend the outcome used to seem preprogrammed. But try after try has lead me to a place where I CAN stay sober weekends. You can too!

Hop on our sober bus for a ride with a very inspirational group of sobrietists for the weekend. A simple hello is all you need to do. Even if you don't post say it now and stay sober each day until we pull up Monday feeling good with no hangover! No shame!

YOU CAN stay sober this weekend!!!

*Ring Ring*

Welcome to your sober weekend!

Me either, Della. My family is to the point that no one needs anything, and most days don't want anything. Consumables seem to be the current trend with us. Candles, soaps, fragrances, chocolates.

I'll be showing up with flowers, a card, and Sunday dinner. Maybe another inspired something. We'll see.

My family is the same. I may hire somebody to mulch and weed for her. Then Fathers Day will be next yikes. I am very lucky to still have both.

Here! We will be celebrating Mothers Day Saturday as I, the mother, have to fly out to Vermont Sunday for a conference. There are dinners and receptions and a lot of drinking at these events. Last one, I noticed some nondrinkers. Think I'll get to know them a little better this time.

My children buy me two hanging baskets of fuscias and make brunch every year. This year it will be a barbecue. The older generation are all gone.

I'm in. I get my mother some annuals for her pot on the front porch. The large pot was a gift from a different mother's day.

Saturday I think is a spring dance sponsored by a local AA club. I may check it out if I'm feeling up to it. Still not 100%.

Congratulations on new job Jane! That's great!

Bernie, enjoy Vermont. It's pretty and they do make fine cheeses there.

Thanks Weasel for starting us off so super early. Coffee is calling my name.
