Drank on and off through the day and almost finished it by late Saturday night. In the wee hours of Sunday morning I poured the rest down the sink and decided to get through Sunday sober.
After being sober all week and feeling great I almost convinced myself on the way home from work Friday that I needed to do that again - that avoiding it was depriving myself of a "fun" weekend. Solitary binging and napping all day, yeah, fun. Scary to see how close I came to believing that insanity.

Anyway, I'm planning to actually enjoy my life today!
Best wishes, all
Well done Lascaux!
And how good is it waking up on Saturday without a hangover?
It doesn’t get old, these hangover free mornings are soooo good

Awake way to early. Very anxious to get that fenced finished today. A pizza and a beer sounded so good last night. But pizza ,salad and iced tea tasted better. So much to do today. Wish us luck!

Morning Weekenders! I’m at work now, but haven’t had a single table yet, so I’m working hard on my iPhone. Hopefully it’s not busy and I can finish a bit earlier. I’m planning to go to a street art festival with a friend when I’m done.

PS: I’m FINALLY a week sober tomorrow! I was stuck in a cycle of relapsing every two days and I seriously started losing hope.

Manta, so happy for you and your 40 days. The anxiety in rehab would have been hard for me, too. I'm way too much of a, "You're not the boss of me," person.

I can live with that.

Willow beat me to it on the Sober Saturday thingy.

I bought a new/thrift store Bodum French press yesterday, a small one. I had/have a big one but it's just me, so I put the big one away as a backup. LOVE my new little one-cuppa. $2, instead of the $35 new.

I went to the thrift store for refrigerator storage bins for cheese and lunch meat and one for the freezer for meats. I am cautiously optimistic that this fourth refrigerator is a keeper. So far it works great. It was a scratch and dent model, still brand new with the styrofoam and packing tape and errything. Just a big owie on a back corner.

Worth the hassle. Venus called it - fingers crossed.

keep up the good work Snuf, you're doing great hope you have a quiet day & enjoy your art festival.

you're up early Bim - you're on Pacific time, right? hope your new fridge is a keeper this time!

I'm going to show my ignorance here, but I'd never heard that song before, at least not that original version, I'd only heard the (fairly dreadful) Bananarama version

I get up between 3 and 4AM every morning. Blessing? Curse? I love the morning and watching the sunrise, so I guess it's a blessing. I have downstairs neighbors that may disagree.

There is a whole string of that era music playing now. That is the Oh-rig-nal. Shocking BLUE.

<<~~~~~~

...and I've never heard the Bananarama one.

I’m sorry you’re in a bad mood Venus. I’m thinking of you and sending a huge hug and lots of love!!

Saturday afternoon here! Although it feels like morning to me, I haven't really done anything.
I still feel anxious and depressed today. I journalled a bit and it did bring me some relief but now the anxiety is creeping back in.

I'm still contemplate taking those anti anxiety meds I got. If I could only make up my mind if that is a relapse as in fleeing from reality or if it's just stubborn of me to not take a medicine if I have a reason for it. Like I took pain meds now for my broken leg after the surgery.
I think I worry that I would keep taking the anxiety meds even when I am able to use my other tools like running again.


There's an AA meeting tonight which isn't too far from where I live and I would like to go but I don't know if it might be too much physically for my leg. Other than that my plan for today is to wash my hair and to eat. Maybe do some laundry.
