Columbia just delivered a great play vs Poland.

Leigh - Sorry about the car.

I have another dentist appointment tomorrow (it's going to be a long story), so off to bed.

Good night, weekenders.

Leigh that's a blow about your car. Would a second hand but newer than your old car be worth considering as an alternative option? It might be worth checking before you fork out $4K, the second hand market is very low in the UK right now, maybe it is the same in the US.

Good luck at the dentist tomorrow MB.

Bedtime at Saoutchik Towers.

Thanks for the warm welcomes today guys. Congratulations Venuscat and your love on 9 months, how lovely! 💖

Congrats also to all th England fans on the win today. I do wish England well in the tournament but I have Belgium in two sweepstakes sooooo. Leigh, I am so sorry about your car, I hope you get fixed up soon.

Iím happy to say the worst thing that happened to me today was shelling out for a pair of shoes, then finding a gift card for the store with some money on it when I got home. Iíve had worse Sundays, much worse.

Goodnight all, sweet dreams!

Leigh- older cars are stressy- be sure to do your homework and source a few places for repairs...you might be surprised on the costings.

A second hand car is a definite consideration, Sao; the price of new cars is insane and out of the question. We are going out tomorrow to take a look around.

Stressy, indeed, PJ. We won’t look at anything without an existing warranty. We have two quotes for repairs one at $4000 and change and one at $4250 and change.

Thanks, everyone!

Trachs, we hadn’t thought about leasing; thanks for the suggestion; we will look into that, also.

PJ, we have a couple of additional places to call for repair quotes in the morning.

I hate buying cars. Too bad humans don’t have wings.

It was a busy shift and Iím so tired, but Iím off tomorrow so I can finally relax. I still have to go to Uni to dismantle my work, but hopefully it doesnít take too much time...

I did something Iím not proud of today. My BF took all my scalpels and craft knives for my own safety, but today I found a few packs of surgical blades at the bottom of my bag and I just hid them... Hard to admit, but the thought of having them available for my future needs made me happy...

I have to get rid of them tomorrow.

Sleep time now.

Goodnight everyone!

Wrapping up day 25 and another sober weekend. Played some golf yesterday and went hiking this morning. Caught a beautiful desert sunset on my evening walk. Been walking 3-5mi daily. Keeping myself busy helps keep myself away from bad stuff. Anyways, theres so much beauty in this world you miss when drunk or hungover. Taking it one day at a time.

((;Snuf))). Please trust Venus/Suze and dispose of those knives. Trust that you will have no use for them.

Trust in the goodness that your Recovery will provide.

Trust that we care for you abundantly.
