I had no idea it was memorial day this weekend until I saw this thread but, I'm in! I even watch the news every morning and night, I promise! I guess me 6+months ago would have been 'planning the party' weeks ago and now I just don't do that.

I will join you! Trying to branch out from my March class and socialize a little more. I have tomorrow off, and thanks to everyone at SR I'm going to bed sober!

Good choice STDragon. I'm sure she won't be feeling to great this morning which is something you don't need to worry about at all.

Welcome to Weekenders Cleomie, Don't Remember and Purpirks!

Soberandhealthy i'm certain that people don't hate you and are not talking about you behind your back. I would suffer some days of paranoia like that but once I got soberI came to understand that. I expect some people talk about me still but no more than anyone else and no more than I talk about others myself.

It is another splendid day of blue sky here, shame I am at work but for once I think I can take it easy today.

I hope Mrs STDragon is well this morning.

I agree with Sao, SAH.

I used to think the worst of the world and the people in it, but most of all I thought the worst of myself.

Getting myself out of that cycle of drinking and self hatred was the best thing I ever did.

I really hope you'll think about what more you can do to stay in recovery.

You deserve better than this- truly.

SAH, you aren't crazy, this is what alcohol does to you. These exact thoughts. It's really hard to read your words because it reminds me of myself when I was drinking. I know you don't want to drink and at least you're here. What have you been doing to try to abstain? You were doing so well the last time you were here. What happened? Stay with us. You can do this but you have to want it.

Yea, Mrs. D is a little worse for the wear this morning, but like I said, she hardly ever drinks and I can't remember the last time I saw her that far gone. After putting up with me for years, I can't complain. (Tho I was never a noisy singing out loud drunk).

Sooooooo, you want to talk about singing loudly? Yesterday I had the entire office to myself. So, I decided to do a little 80s music marathon and belt away. I was having a good time with myself (amazed at how fun this was sober!) and working along.

Then.............a coworker appeared in my doorway to tell me she and another coworker were about to get on a hands free conference call. I asked her how long they had been in the office and she smirked and said "oh, for quite some time now"

LOL, LadyBlue! Sound like something that would happen to me!

SAH here's a quote that may help: "Not everyone deserves to know the real you. Let them criticize who they think you are." I've also felt the way you feel....sometimes I still do. I deleted my facebook account years back and that really helped. Now since I don't go downtown anymore, I think screw it, let the rumors fly, and focus on ME for a change!

Wish I could say the same about the weather here in New England. It's been pouring rain for the last 2 days. Ugh! So much for a BBQ.

Enjoy the weekend all!

LadyBlue I have a co-worker who sings along with headphones on. The volume creeps up as the day goes by.

Creative Thinker the forecast here for Sunday and Monday isn't great so perhaps by way of contrast you will some decent weather when it is most useful.

5pm and I am finished for the week!

Just got back from the grocery store. There was a man riding a bicycle throughout the store. He was covered in spaghetti sauce from wrecking in to the shelves and breaking a couple jars.

That's quite an image BC.

Maybe he has a grudge against pushing a trolley.

As long as it was actually spaghetti sauce and not blood from slicing himself open on the jars. Eek. My brother actually had to get stitches across his stomach once because a spaghetti jar broke as he was attempting to open it as it was braced across his midriff. What a mess.

I'm in. I've been very busy at work lately so have been rather frazzled. Totally forgot about checking in for the new thread yesterday until late.

Back to work. See you all later. Family birthday party on Sunday. Cleaning and carting around kids on Saturday. Monday? Maybe I'll get some rest.
