I hope you don't feel too bad Reid. I had covid a couple of months ago but am sure I also had it back in April.

Congratulations on your sober time, Robbie.

Sorry you have Covid again, Reid. I hope it is a mild case and you recover quickly.

I called the cab. company that's giving me a ride to my appt today and they said they'd send a text when they were on the way. That's good cause it's raining today and I don't want to wait in the rain for the cab.

Robbie, congrats on ten months sober!

Reid, hope your covid is a mild case and doesn't make you feel too awful.

Xmas is stressy for me. BUT egardless of the feelings of alone-ness, I know alcohol would just multiply sa feelings and boost up negative thoughts.

Kaily, which dog is the one with the brown ring around the tail? Trying to distinguish them but don't remember a previous post with a picture of just Daisy, can't remember what Daisy looked like.

Just opened a bag of HIPPEAS Chickpea Puffs and Billie ran right over and sat down beside my chair to beg politely for a bite. . She's not rude or annoying, but she is persistent.

happy early morning Friday !

I'm up at the usual time. My dad and I had a great dinner out last night and got to talk about some future things.

It's not necessary right now, but eventually he will need more care than I can give him. My brother and I had a talk this past Sunday regarding this situation because we know it's going to happen eventually. He went in the direction of nursing home. I want to avoid a nursing home situation if we can do that.

I want my dad to be comfortable in his own place, so I want someone who can come by or end up of living here part time to be able to assist my dad when I have to work. I am going to begin researching some places to see and take some notes which I can then deliver to my dad and my brother.

Grateful to be doing this 100 percent sober and with a clear mind.

Kaily, Alfie looks cranky at the moment, but they have a very content look about them both.

Reid, I hope you have an easy go of it with this round of covid.

PJ, Christmas can definitely be a time of stress and anxiety. I have a huge hangover in all our old Christmas pictures. I thought alcohol was getting me through those times, as I'm sure we all did, but it was only heightening those negative emotions.

Mags, I hope you are feeling much better. That is a wonderful illustration of stepping away.

I've done some online shopping, but plan to make a trip in to a bigger store this morning to pickup a few gifts.

It's been mild enough this time around, I've still been dealing with issues from my first bout of it in March so was worried it would amplify things but hasn't. Thanks all.

Pledging for today. Day 61. Need to stay resolute in not taking that first drink as that is my problem. I, and I alone, have the ability and responsibility to make that choice.

Thinking of all here and wishing all peace and serenity.

I'm happy it's Friday.
Dealing with a lot of extra stress at work right now, and my man friend is still really struggling with anxiety and depression. It's all beginning to take a toll on me. But I'll get through it, I always do. Tomorrow I have talked him into leaving his apartment (he hasn't since Monday, when he went to the doctor to get his medication adjusted) to go do a bit of shopping and have lunch in the "big city" (Minneapolis). As long as I do all the driving and we have a set list of places to go, he thinks it will be ok. I have been daydreaming about my trip to Arizona in January a LOT. He has made it pretty clear he's not going, so I'll be on my own, yet again. I don't mind traveling alone, but I do always wish he was with me, pretty much everywhere I go. He WANTS to go, he just can't imagine it right now with how he feels. Plus he is afraid he's going to lose his job, so he doesn't feel right spending the money. I don't think he is going to lose his job.

Anyway, I have rambled. Sorry

Hugs and good vibes to all who are struggling, and Reid, I hope the covid continues to be milder this time.
Congratulations to all of us for getting through another sober day!
