Now I'm in an empty house, exhausted, and approaching my "witching hour". I feel pretty strong which is good because I wasn't so sure starting the day. Time to play my guitar REALLY LOUD until someone comes home.

Only 6 hours left in day 6...
I was going to suggest a nap but then I caught on that you were watching the kids. Sounds like you have had a pretty full day! More productive than me by far. Glad you joined us this weekend.

Thanks Solarion. I'm glad to be here too. I'm not a napper. I get up and go. Being industrious is a trait of mine. I actually need to feed it and no suppress it to stay at least semi-sane. haha

My screen name is a nick name I was given many years ago by my friends because I'm super relaxed about most everything. I haven't been called by my normal first name in years. But even though I "chill" a lot. I get into things and see them through. It's like a blessing and a curse.

MrChill - You are industrious. You got so much done! Now you can kick back a little and enjoy the clean everything.

FacingFuture, good job not listening to that voice. It's pretty chatty for a while in the beginning - but the more you shut it down, the easier it gets.


I am starving. I took a long hike down to the water, and now I'm waiting for my spaghetti water to heat up. How long till I hit my goal weight? I feel hungry all the time - especially since I had cookies yesterday. Boy did I have the energy to climb that hill, though

welp, I just removed the tape I wrapped around my thumb. Blood soaked and still bleeding. Hurts like a sore thumb I suppose - throbbing pain. Definitely an oucher. What? Oucher ain't a word? It is now. The fun part is going to be scrubbing in the shower. I just noticed we're on pace to eclipse 500 before the end of Monday.

Della, I found a ring tone for you

Seemed like the obvious Band/Title to link here...

Not exactly 'The Carpenters', but a good Industrial Tune.

All were had by a good time at the kinda-muddy Dog Park. Had 2 long chats with Pals, and got some good tips from one Pal on my Greenhouse Design I'm mulling over now for some future date. This Gent sold Windows, and uber-high end Sun Rooms. Also a former Drinker who 'gets it'.

Day 2 and entering the danger zone that is dinner time. Time for that run I mentioned earlier. The cold bottle of white wine in the fridge might have to be dumped. This is going to sound strange, but I haven't told my husband I've quit. He doesn't think I have a problem and doesn't want to change our lifestyle. I appreciate he doesn't see my drinking as a problem. But I do. I know the difference between choice and addiction. I know I crossed the line. I need to be able to do this on my own - even if that means leaving the bottle in the fridge until he finishes it. Thanks for the support everyone. I'm already discovering the power of this group.

I would dump the wine, segCurly... And tell the husband. I remember not wanting to tell anybody and leaving myself that small way back to drinking... Best wishes on a sober weekend and sober future!!!

My husband has been doing some cooking for us this week since I've been working a lot more lately. Last night it was greasy hamburgers, greasy hamburger buns, and greasy fries. Lol. Tonight, it's spaghetti. We shall see how it turns out

I am proud of him for cooking, even if it's simple foods. He has progressed from sighing, slamming cabinet doors, and whining to handling it like a man... lmao!!

I'm back from the party. The only alcohol was in half a homemade tiramisu. An Italian friend of my brother's brought it. The other half was coffee. I had some coffee half but I think alcohol had bled into the other side so I didn't finish it.

Thanks for the industrial lights and magic MM. I've always liked that song. I'd rather die than give you control. Oddly, Trent Reznor, lead singer, had a house in the quiet and genteel garden district in New Orleans. Don't know if he still does but I found it ironic.

Time to get kids to bed. I hope everyone is hanging in there tonight.

Brain, I hope you are ok. Doesn't sound good.

segCurly.....I live with an alcoholic (not saying your husband is) and he was very resistant to me getting sober. In the beginning he tried to sabotage me any way he could. Me quitting meant he was losing a drinking buddy and it might mean he'd have to examine his own drinking habits. I knew I'd be doing this without him or his support but I was %100 committed to my own well being and sobriety regardless of what he did or didn't do or say.
5.5 months later I'm sober and he's still drinking heavily. I'm not saying it's easy, but getting and staying sober while living with a drinker can be done. I made a commitment to never drink again and I will never change my mind.
By the way.....running hangover free rocks!!
