    Re: Army garrison - February 2021

    Sorry for the late check in......lots of stuff had been fusing and all though I can reach most of the switches but two that I needed I were reach unless I stood and wobbled on a box of god knows water and I wasn't going to risk breaking my legs standing on two boxes to teach. Mr JC was in work the day by.

    So glad you got a bit of relief last night. @brit

    I bet you felt like a new woman today @brit.

    I was at that too yesterday @JackieClaire! put the wrong lead on my soup maker and click, fuse went. The one connected to the internet. I know this immediately as in less that 5 seconds, 3 children appear in the kitchen.

    Shit show continues over here.. inlaws are positive.. late 70s, underlying conditions. They have not left their house in 10 months, except for shopping, they have been so scared of covid. Both sleeping a lot. The rest of us are not.

    Got a break in the rain and went for a run. Hope you got a walk in Rustop!!

    Oh my goodness, Mary. That is exactly what I am afraid of. We have all sacrificed so much over the last year and now they're positive anyway. The poor things. I really hope they're OK.

    'I know this immediately as in less that 5 seconds, 3 children appear in the kitchen'
    That made me laugh my head off.

    For years a friend had this on the pantry door:
    For today's wifi password, please complete
    1. clean room
    2. mow lawn
    3. unpack dishwasher


    I am back to watching My 600lb Life for motivation...

    Good morning! No more drinking thoughts as I have had them most evenings since Christmas and always thought I was a strong woman and would be able to resist the urge.I was shocked that I gave in but glad I came here and was accountable.

    Cannot dispose of the wine while Mr A is still alive as it is worth a fortune and thee are 500 bottles at least.

    MrA Continues to hang on although his quality of life is so awful. They are talking about the hospice now.

    Hope Joe is improving.

    Love to you all and I am sorry it is all about me but my world is so small and isolated I can hardly think about anybody else's pain or problems.

    Good morning everyone. So glad you are posting Brit, we are here for support and you are a very strong woman, you have been dealing with this alone for months. 500 bottles, don’t know how you did it. Hospices are wonderful so hopefully you will get something worked out. This bloody covid just makes everything so much harder.

    Sorry to hear about your in-laws Mary, hopefully they will be ok. My friend had a third negative test, even though her two daughters had it. Having had the first of the vaccines must have helped. Sooner they roll it out the better. Molly, hope you are hanging in there. Have not heard from Stirly in a while, hope she is ok. Off for my walk, it’s not raining, yeaaaa

    Morning.
    @brit.......never, ever think you're a bother.

    @mollyka..........I feel I'm force-feeding myself. Food holds no interest so I often just shove a chicken in the oven and pick at it. Wishing Joe a speedy recovery.

    I've got my COPD nurse ringing this afternoon...........on the phone. I normally get my blood tested, blood pressure taken, and breath into a special machine. So this is going to be interesting.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Strength has nothing to do with it MrsA...addiction which we all have can overpower any strength we may have..that's why the tools of recovery are essential to learn and learn..practice and practice and then learn again...only way in long run really

    Joe has now to do some major test tomorrow..it's a big deal I gather..hospital had to get permission to do it...they've not been able to find the root of the infection so far so my horror is that that's what they are looking for tomorrow....sorry..just have no one to share that with..can't worry my children and it's lonely

    Oh Molly , can message you my number if you want to talk or maybe it has helped just to put it in writing. Did not realize that they were still looking for root cause. Thought they had operated and it was just recovery. You poor thing, this bloody year just keeps on giving. Waiting is the worst, once he has the test you will take it from there. One minute, one hour at a time. This too shall pass. Don’t know what to recommend for distraction in the meantime. I’m a walker, can you get out near a beach or anything? Mean it regarding being at the other end of a phone xx

    Molly Brit Brit, you are amazing for stopping at half a bottle. I cannot be sure I would have done. Molls, my little candle is going on again for tomorrow.
