How very hip Sao.

I have a fence to build this weekend. A long overdue project due to drama with the neighbor. I'm putting up a 6 foot privacy fence and will be so happy when it finished.

Don't get me going on the neighbors and the fence...

When I first moved into my current house I noted the fence along one side of my property was old and busted up. I asked my neighbor on that side if he knew who owned the fence - him or me. He claimed ownership of the fence. Then, every three months (or so) for the next year and a half he asked me if I would pay for half of the fence replacement. I kept telling him I'd think about it, and tried to avoid him. Then he got smart and had his smoking hot Barbie-looking trophy wife ask me if I'd pay for half the fence. Being a big dumb male of the species I agreed. (I'm pretty sure I sounded like Scooby-Doo when I did, too: "Roh-kay".)

Fences are stoopid...

Can I flag down this bus and find a seat?

I'm going out of town later today on a weekend trip with a friend. I plan not to drink.

I agree...great posts. Cravings just a bit of broken neurology. Helpful. I feel often that the whole cranium is full of nothing but broken bits. But it does settle down again and I can make myself useful. Thank goodness. I do long for a more euphoric break between usefulnesses. I think I am still pretty deep in that anhedonia real thing.

I'm ACTUALLY smack in the middle of that real thing of feeling sorry for myself, despite having no good reason for it and plenty reason to feel lucky and grateful. Trying to shake myself out of this stupid funk.

I have work obligations over this weekend, even though I've planned this trip to a scheduled event for about a year. Have had the tickets that long. I should have communicated at work earlier, obviously. So I only have myself to blame, and am kicking my rumpus around the room. I'm still going on the trip but will have to constantly manage to keep my work disruption to a minimum. Not exactly the carefree trip.

Thank you, Gilmer! I need to be here. It will be fine. I can make a mountain of any molehill.

Did someone say "mountain out of any molehill"? I still do that. Catastrophes galore! I just have to sit back and take a deep breath and put things into perspective.

I'm not drinking this weekend. Too much to do. Time goes by much faster now that I'm not drinking. Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. Sobriety. It's a gift.

Count me in Weekenders!!

Welcome to anyone new, this is a great place for that extra bit of support over the next few days, you'll not go short.

"Don't believe everything you think" is a great quote, and exactly right, my own mind has told me many lies over the years, not because it was looking out for my best interests, but because it was addicted to alcohol, and it would try to sell me every story it could get away with to get me to continue in that addiction.

We can say no, even to our own minds Weekenders . . . Let's do this!!
