Morning all, three days from my six month milestone.
A video interview today and more job hunting.
Hopefully we are getting a break in the rain this week and there can be riding...
Wishing you all a very happy Monday.

melski - good for you, and best with the interviews.

Not too bad out, warmish, misty, foggy, expect an inch of snow this a.m.

I am going to do this. Solutions Recovery Club is getting a new member today, 1 year membership. Also, donating to the humane society, VFW, and a np radio station.

Twins' birthdays in a few days not sure what to get them. They will be 35. My other son is 33.

Shook off a couple using thoughts already, like a dog and a wet coat.

Been up but earlier, 0445.

Everyone have a grand olde day!

Woke just before alarm. DILís ride is me after all. Thankfully she is off tomorrow.
Yes I am a WY native and am used to 8 months of freezing wind and snow. The weather sucks the pioneer spirit right out of a person by May.
Lots of 4wheel drive trucks and suvís. I have a small Subaru car. Back in the old days we just chained up the tires and hoped for the best. Warming up the car now.

A great Tuesday to all.

Up at 0415.

Extremely busy last week and this week but it's almost over! The 12 step way of life has given me many blessings, one of which is impending retirement. Before that happens: training replacement and planning retirement ceremony and luncheon which is Thursday. I so look forward to getting the emphasis off me and back to working with newcomers.

Guess my body has an alarm. 7 hours sleep so not complaining.
Busy day ahead. Looking forward to DILís court today to move this mess along.
Itís been awhile since I stargazed. Not many stars visable but the moon was beautiful last night.
Hope we all have a good Wednesday.

Fits and starts to this morning. Ate well. Slept way too much. Freezing, windy, sucks. A couple weeks and the days start getting longer. Yipee. A great sober Wednesday to everyone.

No word from public defender on DILís outcome. DIL did not have to attend court. I would have been calling if I were her but she puts off reality as I do also at times.
Congratulations on 6 months melski and I hope your interview went well.
Also hoping your morning is better today wiscsober.

A safe sober Thursday to all.

^^^^Thank you. You too!^^^^

Nothing terrible happened yesterday, just an extremely blah day. Felt bloated. Exhausted. Feeling guilty for being so out of shape. I don't have responsibilities for spouse or minors so I don't like to complain that I do nothing. Today is 12 full weeks -- 3 months. Isolated. Skipped the apt. bldg.'s Xmas dinner. I ate two buckets of chicken wings and a huge sandwich over the past 3 days. A lot of carbs and protein and not much fiber, fruits, or veggies. Some things are within my control, and nutrition is a good one. Still looking to purchase shoes and joining a recovery club. Ok enough all about me.

Everyone Have a Wonderful Sober and Recovery Filled Day!

Morning all, interview went pretty well I think, should hear back in the next few days.
I think food/nutrition is challenging because unlike alcohol we can't just stop eating.
That and finding the right kind of nutrition plan that works well for each "body" is challenging too. So much conflicting information to sort through and doctors don't usually know much about it.
A no sugar, low carb paleo plan makes me feel best but everyone is different.
Hope everyone has a blessed day.
