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

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    No word yesterday about Mrs QW’s upcoming tests. There were protests across the country yesterday against the Covid vaccine, in some cases hospital entrances were blocked. Their organization was founded by two former nurses and they are targeting healthcare workers. This makes no sense to me. If any one of these protesters contract Covid, the healthcare workers would be there to treat them. And because our hospitals, especially ICU’s are at or near capacity, planned, necessary procedures are being cancelled. I saw an interview with a man who has waited for over a year for a kidney transplant only to be told 2 hours before surgery the operation was cancelled because there wasn’t an ICU bed available for his recovery. Insane. What about the rights and freedoms for those who are doing their best to avoid Covid?

    Heading out for a walk to hopefully work off some frustration!

    Have a great af Tuesday everyone.

    QW
    AF since 26-02-19 NF since 04-83
    F*ck PD, cancer & covid-19

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

    Some great posts and remembrances here today.

    QW, same here with the health care system here in Washington. Our ICUs are past capacity and non covid patients are being placed in conference rooms! Here, 95% of covid patients are unvacinated. :'(
    Ugh.....

    I'm having lunch with an old friend today for her 65th bday. We've been friends since 6th grade. BigAl, how's that for dating myself? Lol

    I'm counting my blessings! And asking for 24 more.

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

    Good morning Cafe friends and stick shift lovers. It seems protests are everywhere. It is simply frustration. Too much overreach. I believe it goes much deeper then just vaccinations. Golf was a struggle yesterday as I could not sink a putt. Somehow a vortex seemed to follow me from one hole to the next. Getting ready for a trip next week. So, with a deep sense of gratitude I accept another twenty four. I wish you all the best day possible. Blessings x

    P.S. Focus only on what you can control. The other stuff is toxic to your soul!

    Donít forget, you can: start late, start over, be unsure, try and fail AND STILL SUCCEED!

    If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

    Good evening Cafe Friends. No words tonight, just a humble ask for 24 hours more please and thanks.

    I have tasked my higher-ups with figuring out a work situation that allows me to harvest, and plant next year. It's a big deal.

    I edited this post out. Just a bad night and I succumbed to my darker feelings. Jude, the early riser, caught it before I could delete. In essence I was lamenting my bike crash and thinking about how things would have been if I had not survived. Just a bad night. My apologies for letting my darkness bleed into this forum. Today is a new day.

    @BigAl, the world would NOT be a better place without you! I do understand major depression as I have been there myself with the same thoughts that you are having now. In the beginning, the journey to sobriety can be fraught with insecurity and doubt. There is a reason that you did not die after your accident. It was definitely a traumatic event, and it has shaken you to the core. Please, please get some help before it's too late. Although you may think differently now, I think that your family would much rather have you around rather than having monetary compensation from your life insurance. Right now you're focussing on all the negative aspects of your life. Try finding something to be grateful for, even if it's the smallest thing. It can really make a difference.

    Humbly asking for another 24 hours please and thank you!

    5:30am in Alberta, I'll have another 24 please, and thanks...

    In the last 24 hours, these people have signed in for 24 hours of wellness:

    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.

    My attempt at drinking myself to death (and I almost succeeded) and subsequent hospitalization was the turning point for me @BigAl. I won't go into all the details again, but it was the morning after that I knew I'd never drink again. Make this your turning point, I know you can do it!
