Weekender Thread 23-27 August 2018

Hi There!

I'd like to welcome anyone new to SR and new to this thread.

Weekends can be a tough time, and that's what this thread is about - support.

We also share bits and pieces of our lives and the things that are important to us, or make us laugh..anything that makes the journey a little easier

If you've never jumped into a weekender thread before - no time like today...do it now!

I'm sorry PJ. I read about it in other threads.

I don't understand what it has to be that way but all you can do is accept it.

I hope it's not as stressful as you're fearing PJ

Thanks Dee!

Hello weekenders.

I love hedgehogs. We used to have them visit our garden a lot and even bought them their own little bowls and special food.

There hasn't been any prickly visitors for a long time now but often see one squashed on the roads though. They are on the decline in the UK, with numbers halving since 2000.

I hope you enjoy this short video as much as I do:

I'm in! Thanks, Dee!

John, Those guys are the cutest things ever! Somebody on this thread once posted a link to an organization spearheaded by Dr. Brian May of Queen that's dedicated specially to preserving and rebuilding hedgehog populations in Britain.

((((( PJ )))))

I'll be praying for a bearable Saturday for you.

Thanks for this new chapter Dee!
Good luck for Saturday PJ and remember : it will pass

I'm in a bored "...meh" state these days in my sober journey.
I often don't see clearly what is the point of being sober anymore...
I'm forgetting where I come from and it frightens me.
I know this is a pesky way that my AV uses to get me back to drink, use substances and even smoke cigarettes again.
That won't happen because I have some tools to fight back

A very good way to fight this is to visit SR and share with others traveling on the same difficult road.
I always feel better after a visit in here!

Have a good day my Weekenders friends!

Get well soon, venuscat!

In the eternal Hedgehog vs. Fox debate, I consider myself #teamHedgehog! Btw here in South Texas we're mostly armadillo country, although the UTSA mascot is the roadrunner and you'll see them around too.

Sorry to hear that.

Being ill isn't nice so no need to apologise, whine away if it helps to take your mind off things!

Try and drink plenty of water and hope you feel better soon.

I'd find it hard to choose, we have foxes visiting our garden too. Guess if I had to choose it would also be hedgehogs.

I love armadillos!

Prayers Suze...

Dee (and all) I am putting a positive spin on Saturday (when my 2sons are 'serving' me the ex's divorce papers - amended, again).
My sons are coming to my place....so the personal touch is good..not a mediated session with a professional as witness. I know they do not hate me...hopefully this will be an okay meet. I get to use the lactose free Milk I have been buying for a year, jic..as one of my sons is lactose intolerant. That means, even then I thought there was hope.

Aren't they just?! Yes, Brian May does some great work when it comes to our native wildlife, pretty good guitarist too!

Good Morning, all. I have been waiting for this new thread to open. I am back on Day 2 (again) and realize I need to step it up even more than I have in the past.
I have a lot going on this weekend, but need to check in here as often as I can.
Thank you all for being here!
