Hey Weekenders!

It's another day wasted as I stayed in bed till 3pm and now I have to leave to work... Closing tonight. Hopefully it's not busy...

Still struggling to find motivation to do every single simple thing. Shower... ugh. Eat something... eh. Coffee YES, can I have some coffee please!!

Congratulations on your nine months anniversary Sue and Nick/Venuscat and Goat!

Good to see you Joandmelandhan!


I had to leave the big screen where I watched the game because my AV was making strenuous efforts to occupy some headspace, I suppose I will never be entirely rid of it. Never mind that though what a great result!

WOOT WOOT!

I just learned something.

Don't drain the water out of a cooler as the ice melts.




...Of course an even better lesson is to replace your refrigerator when it starts having problems, instead of nursing it along for two more years.

Doing well here....fleeting thoughts coming less, replacing thoughts of missing drinking with thoughts of disgust and shame....

Cried yesterday morning....sorry for what I have done to my body and for hurting others....sorry for the wasted years....

I felt much better feeling the feelings, numb with alcohol for so long.

Enjoying beautiful weather in northern Illinois. (Thatís by the Great Lakes).

Prayers/thoughts for all my SR peeps struggling.

Ahhh love....tears are good....they help to wash away some of that pain I think....and we all understand....and have been there.

bim honey.....why? Because the water keeps the food cold or because it's really hard not to make a massive mess on the floor?

And should I start watching Will and Grace again....is the new series any good?

Venus, I put the cooler in the bathtub. Tiny kitchen, tiny apartment. Easy drainage.

Apparently the water keeps the food cool, and preserves the ice that is left as opposed to the ice having to cool the air. I'm supposed to only drain it when it's too full. Google told me that. Don't even know if it's true, but it's less work for me, so I'm going with it.

Ha ha!

It would take too long too explain so here is the famous (in Britain) piece of Norwegian commentary that andyh has spoofed.

The sneaky scheming AV just keeps on trying to trick me. But Iím getting wiser to itís lies and Iím drinking tea (already had my quota of coffees....) I told it in no uncertain terms to BACK OFF! Itís not 6 weeks until the day is done sober, and my reward will NOT be wine tomorrow, but a new pair of boots! So there! Take that AV
Our AVs are the most consummate of liars! They know us well and know exactly what to say! They are incapable of truth!

Well done on shutting yours down Willow!

((((Free))). Those feelings/regrets will be resolved in Recovery. Every day you stay sober becomes a part of a new past, one of which you can proud.

Gilmer, well done baking at 4:00 am. I am fairly certain that I would NEVER be capable of doing so.

Vinny, take me with you if you go fly-fishing. I can be around normal drinking but my tolerance for drunkenness is practically NIL.

JoJo!

Our 13 year old car just died; about $4000 to repair (a cost more palatable than that of a new car but it has 193,000 miles on it making the $4000 a very questionable investment); buying another was NOT in the budget

I have been trying to find a channel to watch a World Cup game but every time I turn on the tv and pick up the remote, one or another of three sets of little hands pre-empts my search.

Greetings and love to all.

Yes, they are very, very, very close. Both pairs are coveted
