5:40am Good morning, I like Thursdays 'cause it's approaching the end of the week. I'm grateful to have a 5 day-a-week office hours job. It use to be shift work in my younger years. Very difficult when you have little ones.

Stayed in bed protesting for a few minutes. Full work day. I worked 8-5 Monday thru Friday for 25 years at the post office. I was very lucky to have an office job there. Seems like a lifetime ago now.

A safe sober Thursday to all.

Up and at '
em 0345

The winds are calm, big change from yesterday.
Cold and crisp. Or as we say when asked, "It's not that bad."

Food is always an issue....not having enough nor eating right and keeping glucose counts low. Probably going to the food pantry and grocery store later.

Been getting lonely for female companionship.

Boundary work with many other tenants: working on assertiveness and avoidance. Sometimes it is best to avoid people.

Enough. Everyone have a safe and sober day. stargazer, imvalentine, STDragon, ChloeRose, melski. everyone

Wiscsober I buy healthy food and then crave sweets. Iím like a kid with candy. Everything in moderation I guiltily tell myself.

A safe and good day to all.

Up at 2:20 am for work. Just received an Apple Watch to help track my fitness and sleep. I have been averaging four and a half hours of sleep a night and 20,000 steps past few days. I guess that's why I feel tired all the time. Plus shift work. I don't know any other way of work life.

Expecting a little snow today, which will grind things to a halt here. All you folks from the colder climes would laugh watching us East Coasters attempt to deal with snow. Though nearly everyone has a truck or SUV, none have snow tires and no one has a clue how to drive on slick roads. As for me, I am dusting off my 16 year old Camry nicknamed the Blue Bomber. It's a heavier car than my light weight commuter car I usually drive and handles pretty well in the snow.

I hope everyone gets to sleep in this weekend!

Yes be travelling at your best today.
About 4 inches of snow here.
We have tons of snow removal equipment and de-icing
To think of drinking and driving in this stuff is ludicrous.
I got enough sleep just woke up early old fat and bloated.
Staying close to home today....I hope you all can too.

Up at 4:15 am for work.

Mid day snow kept folks away, though we had a pre snow crush of shoppers. Expect to be very busy today.

Have a good Sunday everyone!

Up at 0230 but doing well...slept too much which is always the case.

Outside, after a blanket of snow, we have vicious winds.

So glad to be sober this time of day...not some drunk up and down outside.

Big game today Packers vs. 49ers Go Pack Go
And at that time of day I'll be watching and sober.
To everyone working and retired, Thank You for your services.

Staying close to home, accomplishing not much. Hope to talk to my sons and grandkids.

Otherwise playing games, housekeeping, cleaning, listening to music.

I see it's the 100 years when prohibition was enacted in America. Hard to imagine these days...or the 13 years from 1920 to 1933.

Up around 1:30 and dozed off and on. The crud still lingers-cough and sinuses not cooperating. Usual routine but need to go to the pharmacy later,
Enjoy your football game wiscsober.

A good Sunday to everyone.

I will.

Hope you get well soon.

I am pleased I am healthy. 2x sick over 2 months was ridiculous.
