LOL! I try to avoid too many hills. They can be a really killer! There's so many of them.

Sober and happy and home with a zillion new plants from Lowes. Oops.
They didn't have to. We all agreed on the one.

I love Lowe's.

I liked the size of the first one, it was beautiful and sprawling, but old and Dh hated the sunken living room. However the barn was great

The second one was nice, smaller but a beautiful lake view, it has a private road back to where the barn will be. The house is completely modern. I heart it so much. Balcony off the master, pure white kitchen, I might pull the granite countertops for a sleeker glass counter. The biggest part, ceilings high enough for my bed! I bought the bed of my dreams and it has never been completely together because I assumed my ceilings were high enough rofl. 😅

I walked over and met the neighbour, just one. Very nice.

We had a roast dinner, relaxing now. Dh is trying to convince the kids to go to bed early on a holiday weekend.

I am laughing so hard dear MLH that I am going to give myself an asthma attack.

And ohhhh....the house sounds divine girl!!! Yey! And the bed will finally go up properly. Congratulations!!!! So happy for your whole family.

I am laughing because I bought a fantastic treadmill two weeks ago...it really is the best either Nick or I have ever seen. It also weigh over 200 pounds. And err, is kind of enormous. I forgot that I live in a two bedroom house....oops.

And I have worked with animals as well, for years.
Your dream is also mine.

Just saying....

Georgia! If I could just buy a few dozen acres i could scoop up all the strays and turn them into animal therapy dogs... What a life... for now I am stuck as a surgical tech seeking employment

Congrats to all those with milestones this weekend

Good morning everyone, well itís Monday and they are never easy so letís go with ďmorningĒ. I made it through the weekend without a drink, I hope you guys plans worked as well. Being sober hasnít miraculously cured all the problems and stresses in my life but it enables me to deal with them better. Have good week...

Welcome to the Weekenders thread Alysheba!

Purps, I love those pics! Time I visited the zoo again.

I work for a small firm that is usually free of office politics (thank goodness) but today is looking like the exception and by accident it is partly my own fault. I shall have to bide my time and make a move when a certain person goes for a coffee. I'm not very good at this sort of thing.

I got a whopping 2 1/2 hours of sleep last night, not for lack of trying.

Maybe I’ll go back to try again.

I bought a pure white sofa when my youngest was 2. It was in my house 3 months before I conceded that was a bad decision.

I would love a treadmill, but then I look at the size of so many of them and I just cannot. Nowhere to put them.

My gf has hers in an insulated shed, mind you it is for her dog. 🤣

When I was still married my daughters kept a rowing machine in the kitchen, it caught out this unwary drunk many times.

This Weekender started off by mentioning fears, well apropos of my previous post I have managed to deal with something at work that I was unwilling to acknowledge and it really wasn't that bad, a bit awkward but nothing like as bad as I expected. Feeling better now.

Glad we've made it to Monday sober.

Onward! Please sun, make an appearance for the poor sad cold snowed and rained upon dreary muddy PNW.

Thank you.
