Cool Still the Weekender Sober Thread June 18...

Woo hoo! These weekenders seem to never end! Lol

I was invited to a BBQ Sunday and the host asked "are you still not drinking?" To which I replied "Yes... I am still not drinking"

Still? Really? I found that comment sort of slapped me a bit in that I was always the one still drinking. Long after others stopped.

The weekender is still here? Always! As long as there are weekends we will still be here!

*Ring Ring* goes the sober bell of freedom!

Welcome to your sober weekend!!!!!!!

My cat, Norman, has a habit of waking me at 2am with loud purring and a need for attention. I always check to see if weekenders is up when this happens bright and early Thursdays. Usually it is too early...the cat waking me...but this morning I have the whole painful thumb keeping me from quickly returning to sleep.
I still missed shotgun, but I feel confident about my shotgun of the shotgun.

Count me in!!! Woo hoo to another sober weekend!!!

Finally, someone this side of the Atlantic called shotgun. I expect some decent tunes Sao!!

I'm in a good mood. Last day of work today for the week. Staff day out tomorrow. Historical walking tour, followed by bowling, then dinner. I have nominated myself designated driver, so no worries about giving reasons for not drinking. My boss commented that I am looking very healthy recently.

Lets get on the road with this wonderful feel-good weekend bus of ours!!!!

Mr. B that lifted my spirits today! That's so great!

I have had several comments by people how "fit" I look theses days. Isn't that just a great feeling!

Bowling? Maine has bowling with candlestick pins. First time I walk in with my big ball (no comments!) and I was like wait? What? I am gonna crush this! Until I found out it was more like skeet ball than bowling.

Plus I was on a league and that was a total drinking thing. I was a mess.

Enjoy!

Good morning! Maybe I'll hit page one. This staying up late and cleaning is running me down. Yawn!!!

My cats are courteous and don't wake me up that early. Yet.

Behan, what a positive message. Have fun. I'm not a big bowler. I always seem to rip my thumb nail off when I release my ball.

Three days until this party. I'm going to be stressing out. It'll all work out though. Always has. I just don't entertain very often anymore.

But now, I must get ready for work. I shall see you all later

I'm in.

Another weekend already.

I'm on my lunch break, having lunch outside in the sun.

It's Father's Day here this weekend so I'll be heading home. I know these are made-up holidays but I think my dad deserves something special.

My boss reminded me yesterday to use up my annual leave so I'm planning some days off.

I hope you all have nice day

I am in too!

This is the way "real" weekends should be, start on Thursday, and end maybe Tuesday or Wednesday!

My dogs wake me up, they all snuggle so tightly, I give up and get out of bed so I can breathe!
