      It’s been that kind of week for me as well @Jude58 and @dill! Not sure what’s busier, farming or regular life lol.

      I enjoy watching your travels on FB as well @Ginger999, kinda like seeing firsthand places I’ll never get to see in real!

      Still waiting to see a few pics of your hike @Mr Vervill, looks like an amazing place from what I saw on Google! I’m like you, seems I’m further behind after getting back from a few days away.

      I only played badminton in junior high, then football in senior high, along with hockey of course @Quit wining. Got into team roping in senior high and carried on with it till I moved out to Alberta, loved those rodeo weekends lol. A lot of people still don’t understand about warming up before doing anything strenuous, but they soon learn.

      I’m like you @Apatite, sometimes bite off more than I can chew and then wonder how I’ll get it all done! But it’s a darn sight better being busy than having too much idle time on my hands..

      Wise move @Rava! I don’t think I’d be sober if I had a can of Budweiser staring me in the face every time I opened the fridge door, especially in that first year! Now it’s the norm not to just have an AF life, but an AF house as well.

      TGIF! But that’s no excuse to quit on your quits! Let’s keep it between the lines this weekend eh!

      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 right now. 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.

      Another 24 hours please & thank you.

      Finally some warm weather! It made it up to 17C, 62F today accompanied by some strong winds. However, this being Alberta, there is the chance of snow in the forecast for tomorrow. Cowboy, I hope you’re getting favourable weather for harvest up north.

      My little buddy and I walked this morning in sunshine. The wind was gusting up to 60kms/hr, around 40mph, which means there will be a lot of leaves on the ground.

      I hope everyone is enjoying their Friday af!

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

      Finally the weekend! Normally it wouldn't matter to me the day of the week. Since I've retired the days just blend one into the next. But this week my son landed in the hospital with pancreatitis so I had to stay at their apartment and fill in for him getting the kids taken care of, homework done, up early and out to the bus on time, etc. It was a shock to the system! LOL! I managed to check in here everyday and was so appreciative of all of you being there in spite of the upside down nature of things here. On the drive home yesterday afternoon (with the kids in tow for the weekend) I saw a field of soy beans being combined and thought of you, @abcowboy. I thought of all of you when I was at the grocery grappling with the urge to buy wine as a means of escape from the stress. But you all advised against it, so I left the store with coffee and kitty chow which is what I was there for! LOL Thanks. Disaster averted.

      24 more please and thank you.

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

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

      Huge congrats to you @dill for not listening to the AV while at the store! It only takes a minute to make a decision that could potentially change your life forever. That's how I try to deal with the urges when they hit, and how much I would lose by saying yes to that nasty voice in my head!

      Thanks also for the great quotes dill, despite your crazy week! Hope that your son is doing better....Pancreatitis is no picnic, and potentially life threatening!

      No back porch again this am, 40 degrees and raining, with frost advisories up for tonight. Can't change the weather, and I miss my porch, but I'm thankful to have a warm, cozy and dry home.

      Happy Saturday all and here's to another sober 24 hours. Thank you!

      Thanks @dill for a week of really great quotes! And for getting out of the grocery store without wine! Maybe there is something to this virtual friends thing! Today's quote reminds me of the exercise my counsellor gave me to do about thinking of the past and this is what I came up with; it's okay to think about your past, just don't let it get in the way of your future...

      I've still got enough quotes from @Rava to use for this coming week, so thanks Rava!

      Darn cold this morning, well below freezing, but the temps are supposed to steadily rise all week! Maybe be back in the combine this time next week!


      6:25am in Alberta, another 24 please, and thanks...

      In the past 24 hours, these people have signed in for 24 hours of sobriety:
      @Rava @Jude58 @dill @Mr Vervill @Apatite @paulywogg @Ginger999 @Quit wining abcowboy


      Today is going to be a darn good day not to drink!
