    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Going out for groceries today. Sure wish we didn't have to but it's time to stock the shelves.

    Slo, thinking of you.

    I'll take another 24.

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    You don’t have to worry about killing my positivity, Pauly, since I don’t have any right now.

    My brother’s apartment was looked over yesterday, and it looks like he wasn’t planning suicide for long. He was in the middle of doing his laundry, and had lots of freshly-purchased food. I feel somewhat better that hopefully he wasn’t living in that kind of agony for a super long time.
    It’s possible that this financial crisis tipped him over: little bro had told twin sis at little nephew’s birthday party on 3/8 that now-dead bro had “made a killing in the stock market”. He had quit his corporate job a year or two ago, and was probably hoping to live on the nest egg that he thought he had. All conjecture though, as he didn’t leave a note.

    I’m still finding kind, supportive people on the phone to cry my pain & shock out with. This is new for me, as I usually just bury pain like this. This time I have the time & space, and I am facing it and moving through the endless waterfall of tears and such. It has only been a week; he was still alive a week ago at this time!! Avoiding HB like the plague though, since he is unsupportive. Had a short-lived weak moment yesterday when I woke up in pain and verbally reached out to him, but he was unsupportive. I am so, so glad that there are other people who will hear me, and make space for me, and understand.

    Looking for a quiet AF day. Let’s all walk (I can a little, before the knee hurts) and bike, and sit in the beauty of nature instead of drinking today!

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    Ginger, great quotes! The beautiful mountain scene is Mt. Robson in Jasper National Park, Alberta and one of my favourite places.

    I don’t recall if I ever mentioned that I used to collect Roman Imperial coins and I have a few from the reign of Marcus Aurelius. If you watched Gladiator, he was father to Commodus (I have a few of his coins too).

    Slo, sending a big hug your way. You’ve been through a lot recently and are staying af which is amazing.

    Another day in isolation. Our neighbours are picking up a few groceries for us so we don’t have to go out.

    Have a great af Thursday everyone!

    QW
    I try to be the person my best little buddy thinks I am.

    AF since 26-02-19
    NF since 04-83
    F*ck PD and cancer!

    Seems like we need to be lifted up these days. I'll take another 24, please and thank you!

    Today is going to be a darn good day not to drink!
    Quitting and staying quit isnít easy, itís learning a whole new way of thinking. Itís accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
    Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Just get through today. Tomorrow will look after itself when it becomes today, because today is all we have to think about.
    Friendship is not about how many friends you have or who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you", and proved it.
