      Re: Newbies Nest

      Good evening Nesters,

      Had another nice day & am grateful!
      Leaving Canada tomorrow afternoon & driving a few hours into New York state, spending one night there then heading home. This has been a fun trip & One I really needed, ha ha.

      Byrdie, I’m guessing it’s going to take time to unravel this family mystery. Everyone is going to have to process the info at their own pace too. I hope it just ends up with you having an enormous happy group

      Rava & frances, sounds like you are both doing very nicely. I am happy for both of you!

      Hi there Pav, kensho, Ava & everyone.
      Wishing a safe night in the nest for all!

      Lav
      AF since 03/26/09
      NF since 05/19/09
      Success comes one day at a time

    2. Thanks Pavati, frances thanked for this post

      Good evening everyone! Another great sober day here. Getting moving on all my medical check ups I've put off for years. I've also got thyroid issues going on so quite a few appointments in my future.

      Hi, All:

      You sound great, Overit! Keep it up. It is amazing how much energy you can muster when not governed by alcohol.

      Frances - Oh, menopause...I am not in it yet, but have a lot of the symptoms developing, including lack of focus, severe mood swings and dry skin. Let me know if you find the silver bullet...

      My first one is leaving for college in the fall. Although he works nights and is almost never home, I know that we'll miss him when he goes. I AM looking forward to coming home to find my house in the same state I left it (with no new dishes in the sink or underwear on the floor).

      Byrdie - I have heard SO many stories of half siblings, different fathers, etc., with the advent of those easy genetics tests. It is amazing. I can't imagine that doctors chutzpah to have all of those affairs - unprotected! I wonder how many there are in your town... It must be so confusing and disorienting to hear that news.

      Lav - glad you got a great trip with your family. Your grandchildren are so lucky to have you around, and vice versa. I needed that little bit of gratitude this morning as I am heading into a difficult day at work. Thanks for that.


      I went straight from vacation into too much work - I need to remember that taking care of myself, exercise, and sleep are not just nice to have - I NEED them. I have to find balance!

      Happy Thursday!
      Pav

      Byrdie and Ava - the rescue was amazing and a spot of good news, wasn't it? Seems so much news is bad these days. I know the world has been through far rougher times, and I'm even old enough to remember a few of them, but sheesh!

      Lav - sounds like you're having a wonderful vacation!

      Pav - yep, even though your son isn't home much I'm sure having him off to college will feel quite different. I can't recall if you mentioned - will he be somewhat nearby, or is he heading off to someplace far away?

      Kensho - we're having unusually hot weather here too. Makes it difficult to sleep. But absolutely not tempted by summer drinks as a way to cool off - we both know that's a ruse and that if anything al just makes us feel hotter. Hope you're able to find some shade or that you have good AC. We are fortunate to have a well-shaded backyard that stays noticeably cooler than most outdoor areas, but no AC - so back deck is where we tend to live in the summer time.


      Sounds like folks are generally doing well. Hard to believe it's almost mid-July! The exciting part for me is that my 2-year AF anniversary is coming up in less than 2 weeks (July 24) yippee!

      Have great days and eves everyone!

      Good morning nesters! Pav, you mentioned the book Tweak, thats what I ordered yesterday (I think it was you that mentioned it)! Its hard to keep up with everyone being new here but I am trying. Today is 3 weeks for me and thats huge. I am so happy with this site and the support it provides. Frances, I am glad you are still hanging in there with me. Byrdie, I am sorry you are having so much going on with your recent family issues. Must be stressful for you. Lav, hope you enjoy NY state today. Good luck overit with your medical issues. And hope everyone else has a great day!

      Hi RAVA! Don't worry about keeping up or learning everything here. Many people have been here for years and are familiar with each other. There are many newer people too, and everyone is welcome. Read and post as it helps YOU. No pressure! I'm delighted to see you here and putting in the work and feeling good for it!! Keep going - you will never regret it!

      Wags, we do have AC, but it's sounding weird and cooling less efficiently - it may be on its way out! Ack! Congrats on your anniversary coming up.

      PAV, sending you good vibes today as you enter your stressful day. You get up early!!! I think you are an hour earlier than me and you beat me to the post. Hope you have a good day.

      My father's partner has a sister in the hospital now - she's abused alcohol and drugs for years. It's really sad. She's sort of decided she doesn't want to do the work to have a better life, and she may not make it. We either claim our lives back or addiction will claim US. One or the other. It's not easy to work through the things that caused us to become addicted, but I can say for FACT that it is worth it. A willingness to feel pain and discomfort for a bit while we go through the process is all it takes, and it doesn't kill us. Alcohol kills us.

      On a lighter note, Gratitude is where it's at! I'm thankful for so much. I will attend an industry awards banquet tonight. Second black tie event in one week - Ugh! Looking forward to it though. I entered a space. It's a prestigious award and I'm not holding my breath, but you never know!

      Have a good day everyone!

      Greetings Nesters,

      Back in the US, currently parked in NY, upstate.
      Apparently we are doing some hiking in & around the plentiful gorges around here. I don’t think I brought the right shoes for that, ha ha! We’ll see what develops.

      Wags, wonderful on your upcoming anniversary

      Rava, Congrats on your 3 AF weeks, very nice.

      Hello to everyone & wishing a safe night in the nest for all!

Still reading My Beautiful Boy about addiction and enjoying it very much. Will be starting Tweak this weekend. Its helping me to read this kind of stuff for now and being thankful that I am sober. Hoping everyone enjoys this summer day!
