Take care of yourself love....you are precious.

When it feels all too hard and too painful, remember that we all care about you. We want you to be safe.

I'm in

I'm quite looking forward to getting back to some semblance of a routine. I'm off to do some volunteering tomorrow, so it'll be nice to get outdoors in the fresh air & get some exercise. or just get rained on, as is more likely. I suppose I'll have to start looking for a job at some point too

I would challenge you to see which of us gets a job first, since I need to do that too - but there are too many variables and I tend to procrastinate, so I'll just give you the win.


Where's Bix? I haven't seen her for a while...

Which is completely ridiculous - because of so many things.

There are newer, clearer gifs, but this one is my favorite internet fight.

Iím in for a sober weekend! My moods have been all over the place. This morning felt good, right now I feel down and overwhelmed about work. I want to be a farmer. I want to quit my job, sell my triplex, and start over. Sober. We got some land up north. I donít care how poor we are, I just want to be happy. And sober.

Have a good weekend everyone! I love reading the posts. My feet grew after I hiked the pacific crest trail one full size. Apparently thatís common? I hope I donít end up a short bigfoot someday. But if I do, I guess Iíll just have to buy new shoes and do some hemming.

My moods are still all over the place....I am expecting it all to level out at around 5 years. I hope. Or not....and then we will learn to deal with it, because we can. We are strong women (and men).

I love your farm plan Magpie....follow your heart.

I will come work on your farm.

Alpacas. That's what I want to have on your farm.

Welcome to the thread.


G'nite all. Tomorrow is Friday. Make plans to go to bed sober tomorrow night. Popcorn and flannel pajamas and a down comforter - maybe even some clean sheets.

Heck yeah! I was thinking sheep for fiber. So I guess I want to be a shepardess. Alpaca would fit in nicely. Small scale operation, high quality products. I raised about 30,000 head of honey bees last year. Pretty much just let em do their thing though. And then pillaged. That was urban style- I think we can up production on the farm. Veggies too.

What should we call it Bim?

Cheeky.... " other body parts which shall remain nameless continue to grow your entire life? Oh yeah."

Besides ears and nose I suppose you are thinking about toes or hands Suze

My dad's nose and ears were prize winning. He had no shame hairy ears. My mom used to say to him that a bird was after making a nest.

What's all this talk about farming. I can help.
I want to be a farmer too

Thanks for the thread Dee .
Hey can I come and work on your alpaca farm too? I can do some knitting of an evening and we can sell the bits and pieces in your farm shop😁
Mood up and down here too.... I'm trying to just go with it and not beat myself up too much. As well as keeping busy... college work ext.. . With a useless tutor...but also the other subject has a great tutor😀.
Trying to just go with the flow...
Hugs to all (And welcome to our new friends)xx
