    6:10am in Alberta, another 24 for me please, and thanks...

    Sun is shining, already 14C (58F), looks like it's going to be hot one...

    In the past 24 hours, these people have signed in for 24 hours of sobriety:

    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.

    Yep, that's the one word I use to describe sobriety, freedom! No longer have the ball and chain of drinking and thinking of drinking wrapped around me! My life might not be all that I'd like it to be now, but it's a darn sight better than being (and acting) like a drunk!

    53F and sunny.
    I'm back, lol!
    Long week in NYC, and got busy as soon as I got back hit the ground running. NFL minicamp.
    I did get to cycle around Central Park, very cool. Spent time with an old friend, and went to Coney Island too! Packed a lot into the week.
    Took a bump off the plane on the way back, overbooked, and I pocketed $600, plus they paid for the room overnight, and meals. Next morning's plane was overbooked too, they were offering $900, I volunteered again, but few few people didn't show for the 6 am flight, and I finally got home.
    Bike ride today as it's sunny, and rain on the way for the weekend.
    Got to get the lawn mowed too, lol.
    Read back in a little bit.
    24 more please.

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    We had a security system installed yesterday. Drilling through the wall, the installer hit a wire, resulting in the power to the garage being cut. He felt bad but it was an honest mistake. Long story short, my neighbour, an electrician, solved the problem in an hour. The alarm company agreed to pay the repair cost and thanked me a few times for being so understanding. I wonder how my hung over/drunk self would have showed up? And, it was the president of the company who apologized. I think we made a good choice hiring this company! I’m impressed by businesses that recognize they are in the people business regardless of what they sell.

    Mr V, glad you had a good time in NYC. I don’t understand airlines that oversell flights. Our favourite airline, WestJet, doesn’t do that. Glad you were compensated for your inconvenience though.

    Last day of renos today - plumbers are to arrive shortly.

    Have a great af Friday everyone!

    Welcome back, Mr. V. Glad you had a good time.

    They started digging the footings for the house yesterday. Did I mention it's solid caliche rock? Just hit the $100,000 mark for lot development and don't have a nail in a board yet! I hope this view is worth it. Hubs is starting to wonder!

    Off to the beach with gkids for 5 days. Can't wait! I'll take another 24, please and thank you!

    Ginger, hope there aren’t too many nasty surprises like the cost of digging the footings and lot development. Have a great time with the grandkids at the beach. Hope the weather is great!

    Great quote today, Jude, especially those last 4 words.

    Welcome back Mr. V!

    Ouch, Ginger!

    Good story QW about the mishap with the drilling and the happy ending. Sounds like a good outcome in the long run! Wouldn't have gone half as well hung over! LOL

    Late check in here. 24 more please and thank you.
    Dill

    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.
