That's one thing I haven't done, but only because I didn't go to movies, I'd rather spend the money on beer.

Dragon, that makes it tougher if it's not your place.

Congratulations, Petals!

It belongs to my wife's family. But I'm really ok with it all. I'm not blowing 9 months on whim. I took out plenty of my own refreshments . We are back home now.

Our local grocery store has a Marilyn Monroe dress on display, just for today. We are going to go and see how close we can get.

You're really not missing much, BC. Yeah, they can do some cool things, but really it's probably nothing I couldn't do without if I had to. I travel all the time for work, and in return for their convenience I feel like I spend half of my waking hours making sure various electronic devices are charged up.

I am here for a sober weekend! Starting out Friday night sober, have been drinking water and Gatorade all day. Fighting this sore throat and summer cold I came down with over this past week. I KNOW I will be healthier without alcohol. It does nothing for me anymore and has only made everything worse in my life when I drank, that's why I am a nondrinker now, and feel so happy knowing that!

Welcome to Weekenders WallaceFunk and bronzie glad to have you aboard.

I hope everyone had a good evening.

I am having breakfast at a place called Barrio this morning. I have not been here before it is very smart. I will be walking over to the Olympic stadium later to watch some of the World Paralympic Games.

Morning all, we have a birthday party to attend for our grand nieces. 4 and 6 years old (I believe). Truth be told, these birthday parties are just an excuse for the adults to drink. (Like they need one). Not exactly looking forward to this afternoon 'cept to see the little ones. The family members already know I don't drink so I'll pack a few of my favorite beverages and hang with the kids.

My inspiration after a nice walk last night:
Strolling instead of sipping
Smiling instead of slurring
Listening instead of shouting
Present instead of absent

Happy sober weekend fellow sojourners

Good Saturday morning, all!
Had a great evening out to dinner with a non-drinking friend and my partner. We were up late talking and having a silly time. After which I slept like a baby. Slept in and just now on my second cuppa. Life is good!

I think I'm coming out of the "why not?" frame of mind I've been in. I haven't posted a great deal, but I've been ON the site a LOT, reading and reading and journaling my mental weirdness.

12 days of sobriety here. I'm working today and tomorrow. I work at a winery!!! Really no problem so far. I just really notice the smell of the wine. It's an asssult on my nose! Doesn't tempt me to drink, at all.

Look... I am only assigned to take care of this woman, not her husband. He has his own aide. Sure, when his aide doesn't show up, I do things for him, because I have to.. doesn't mean I should have to care for him when he has an aide. His lunch is ready to go. Take it in and feed him. You are assigned to him. I'm not doing it.


Hey when I'm a nurse making twice what I make here, I'll do twice the work plus some!
