Mainlining chocolate while hiding in the pantry.

I WILL remain sober during this barbecue I am hosting.

So help me....

Hang in there AO. My husband has been drinking all day in the house and I'm still sober.

I ate a whole large bar of dark chocolate yesterday. It was GOOD.

As far as chocolate is concerned, "resistance is futile"

Keep on that chocky line AO !

It's been a long, hard day. Cared for my mom all day. Just dropped her off and the tears won't stop falling. Just falling and falling out of me.

Returning to a house filled with company should be a challenge.

Im not above excusing myself to the tub.

I know you can see yourself through to the end AO.

It doesn't necessarily need to be graceful - you just have to get there sober

Let the tears flow, alpha.

You'll get through this and when you wake up tomorrow, do something wonderful for yourself.

You earned it, that's for sure.

I love the tears when they fall like that...overwhelming possibly but tears that need to be shed and never drowned.... take care, a bath sounds lovely.

Tears are a good thing as long as they don't land in a beer!

You can do this. Tomorrow will be a new better day

I LOVE what Dee said - "It doesn't have to be graceful -just get there." My new mantra.

Oh what a beautiful morning !!!!

My daughter was supposed to leave for a party last night. She waited for me until I got back from dropping off mom at the nursing home. She just looked at me and said - Mom, I wanted to wait for you so I could tell you, in person, how proud I am of you.

That was probably one of the best moments of my life thus far.

And this, is how we teach our children. Through example. I never imagined at 18, she would still be watching so closely.

Heartfelt thanks everyone for letting me lean on you.

I feel truly blessed to have found this place.

XO AO
