Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all my SR family.

vMan, countdown to Christmas 2018 seems a good plan. Take a lot of pictures this week to look at whenever you think picking up might be a solution to whatever cray AV thoughts come knocking. I still have anxiety now and then, it's in my nature...mostly after dental procedures.... I scroll through my pictures on the phone and it really helps. I don't have any drunken party pictures - just nature and happy times.

Eagle chick countdown too. 9 hours.

EAGLE CAM M15 does a crop drop - is that a euphemism?

Crop drop is the way they release stored food from the "crop" - it's in the neck. Feast/famine is a thing, so is clepto-parasitism so they store the extra food and drop it when the stomach is empty again.

It kind of looks like they are having trouble with swallowing or like something might be wrong when they do it...Eagle Cam is educational if nothing else.

I'm safe but kinda freaked right now. Just found out my wife brought hard liqour into the house for our guests. Wished she had discussed it with me first. But really, what's the diff? I'm prepared to serve wine. I feel like esscaping. Got myself holed up in the bathroom waiting for this feeling to pass.

Good job, Dragon.

Spouses don't have any idea how easily spooked we are. Talk to her. Ask her to put it away, maybe?

You're going to make it through with flying colors.

Flying, I tell ya. Deep breaths. Count to four - breathe in - hold for four - breathe out to a count of four - rest for four.

Repeat.

I never drank ice as a drinker. I had to go to the liquor store to buy a present I had been putting off buying, because liquor store lol. I came home and had a huge club soda over ice. I felt so much better. Hope it passes quickly and you enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend.

Thanks Bim, I told her that every last drop goes down the drain at the end of the evening. If I had known I would've been ok given the time to prepare but that would still include pouring out the left overs.

Yeah, this, "I need to be prepared beforehand," thing ? I challenge you to think about why that is? Because you'll have more times when this happens.

If I reacted that way my first reaction would be to see it as, "My sanctuary has been compromised! My soulmate has betrayed me!" <<~~~over-react much, bim?

You made it through with just a minor freakout. Well done. I think for me that would be my ego jumping up and saying, "HEY! No one asked permission for this horrible act!!"

...ask me how I know.

Hi, weekenders.

Merry Xmas to those who celebrates.

Though I prefer to be sent to a very far-away galaxy where nice aliens have no clue about that what's in the world all this about.

What really gets to me that all this frenzy gradually builds up the feeling that I am missing something if I don't celebrate. And being an atheist it doesn't even make sense to me.

Sorry to be a downer.

I am still boxing and kickboxing. Going easy on kickboxing because my damaged shin is still recovering.

And I think a guy from our kickboxing class started hitting on me. He is like 12 years younger than me.

I am still struggling with depression. And craving to do something crazy. Not drinking .

That's me in a nutshell.

Have to get myself together. Just not sure how.

Have a good long weekend, everyone.

Midnight my beautiful friend ~ you are not a downer. It's OK. And I understand, and betting others do as well, and hey, I'm Jewish, so all of this is a lot for me and I have never done it before.

Love you girl.
