      Re: Newbies Nest

      Good Morning, Nesters!

      TGIF! I'm quite happy that it's Friday! It's been a full on, hard week at work, but one where I've given myself fully so I am fulfilled. Yesterday I was done around 4 (usually it's around 2) and I thought, gosh, I still have 5 hours before bedtime! It was nice to have so much time..
      Slo, it is the Marie Kondo method I've been inspired by.. it's so much fun. I don't really have a lot (thanks to moving so much) but I do have clutter and I'm not organized.. so my flat always seems messy to me.. and I refuse to buy any more shelves or cupboards (here, everything is free standing, no built ins).. so it feels good to pare down! Clothes and linens are done, books today.
      Pav, I'm glad to hear you had some lovely, restorative days off! Did you get some good hiking in?
      Byrdie, the bread wasn't Boudin's! But it was pretty darn good, anyway... We had a sourdough workshop a year or so ago at work and gave starter kits to anyone who was interested.. yesterday was the "reunion" where we asked everyone to bring in a bread from that starter and were so surprised and touched by how many people took part. We had such a beautiful variety of breads,.. you could see the diversity of tastes and personalities. Have you had time to bake any cakes lately?
      Lav, so are you supposed to be warming up there? I know the chickens don't like extreme cold, but are they curious about snow?

      ok, off I go! See you all later.. have a nice Friday!xx

      Re: Newbies Nest

      LC, thanks to your tips about giving myself permission to dig deeper in my closet, I went in with a new eye. I cleared out 6 more items, and thanked them for their service. I really appreciate those tips, they have helped me let go of things in there that I now realize I've NEVER worn, just enjoyed 'having'. I know there is someone else out there might might really enjoy the pieces, that helps, too. Thank you for giving me those new tools.

      I LOVE bread, what a neat experience that must have been to see all the different sourdoughs. I haven't had time to do any baking lately, but I plan to this weekend!

      It's only Friday, everyone, NOT a ticket to BoozeVille! Hugs to all, Byrdie

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Happy Friday all! I have a sudden craving for sourdough

      We're home from surgery - been home about 12 hours I think. All went well, but unfortunately once they got inside my partner's shoulder they discovered it needed the absolute max amount of repair they had even possibly anticipated. That is both good news and bad news - bad in the sense that she has a couple of extra incisions that will have to heal and of course the additional repair work inside as well. The good news is that the eventual healing should be more complete. Apparently the standard in rotator cuff repair is that if a tendon is less than 50% torn they don't repair, so there was a chance they were going to just leave a couple of minor tears as is. When they got inside, they discovered that the tears all qualified for repair and they were also quite inflamed, which explains part of the tremendous pain she has been in.

      So now the healing begins, and for this surgery it's a long a painful road, but we're well-prepared and have a good team of friends and neighbors to help out. I'm very glad I have the next two days off and a light load overall.

      I have to pause for a moment and give a shout out to nurses in particular, but all of the medical workers who are really on the front line of experiences like this. Yes, the surgeon and the anesthesiologist are critical players in any surgery, but the non-doctor staff are the ones who truly make or break the overall experience - both for the patient and for family members. I know we have some nurses and other hospital workers (current or former) here in the nest, and yesterday we once again witnessed that nurses and staff are the true heroes and hearts of the medical field. We had direct interaction with at least 5 nurses yesterday and they were all spectacular, compassionate, super-competent, and kind.

      I also want to acknowledge that I said "she" when discussing my partner above. I am tired of not being fully open about this here in the nest, as I'm pretty open elsewhere in my life. I have had no reason to suspect I needed to keep this a secret, but I'll be honest - even in the 21st century there are people everywhere who still hold ill feelings toward the LGBTQ community, and most of us are pretty damn cautious, partly out of a self-preservation instinct and partly to not risk losing people who matter to us. But I'm tired, and when I saw @NoSugar refer to my partner as she/her a couple of days ago I decided it was time to open up. I'm happily married to a wonderful woman who is my heart (even though she drinks two beers a day ). She's steadfast in her support of my quit, and life in general is easier as a member of a team, be that a partnership or a chosen family or a circle of friends or an online nest

      Ok, that's all for now. You all mean the world to me and I hope you have fabulous Fridays and weekends. On this end, wish us luck and the nerve and muscle blocks wear off and we shift to meds for pain management.

      Howdy and happy weekend!! I’m feeling positive about today. Sometimes you just wake up on that side of the bed. Much more often when not drinking, I might add.

      Hi Rahul! MAJOR HUGE CONGRATS! To 5 years!! So happy for you! Keep lovin’ the sober life my fellow poet friend!

      LC, glad you're enjoying the organizing work! There is a good “Clearing” program on Daily OM that I started - inspiring:

      Hi @satz123!

      Thinking of you @wagmore. Glad the surgery went well!! Nurses are the best when we need them! Thank you for sharing about your partner. Full support for you and your family here! RE: the plumbing… things tend to work out if we give them time. Glad this won’t be major upheaval in your house!

      LAV, hope you don’t have too much mud with all that melting. You might end up needing a chicken wash!

      I LOVE this Ava….
      “time flies when you are having a life doesn’t it.”

      I attended a swanky design event last night and ended up behind the bar pouring wine for guests - we all had turns. It was strange, but not tempting. The smell and actions of pouring. I would have left if it was hard, but the truth is that it just felt like serving food - it was for OTHER people. I didn’t want it, I didn’t crave it and I really enjoyed the other parts of the event. NOTE: it is easier to chum up with the big magazine editors when not loaded.

      Have a lovely start to the weekend everyone. I have not regretted a single one of my 439 days without alcohol. Life is better.

      Done. Moving on to life.

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Happy to hear that the surgery was a success, @wagmor! I needed multiple repairs too when I had that surgery done, so I have three incisions. Yes, it is a painful one with a long recovery. I’m glad that you have taken a few days off of work to give her 24-hr. care, as I was immobilized, frantic with pain, & snowed under with lots of Vicodin. Luckily my sister came to stay with me and took care of me for a few days.

      Ava, I love the reinforcement that you have set up for yourself with a CO2 measuring machine. I would think the feedback showing improvement would be encouraging.

      Pav, you probably have more energy & enthusiasm for your job now that you had a few days off. How’s your foot?

      LC, yes her show has brought her “tidying” methods outlined in the book to a much, much wider audience. I did her exact order too: first clothes, then linens, then books! Then I purged recipes & recipe books. “Hoarding” tendencies was maybe too strong of a word, but I think lots of us alkies struggle with clutter & a lack of organization.

      Byrdie, I regretted throwing away all the scrunchies that I had been saving for my youngest daughter for 10-15 years, as as soon as I tossed them, they came back into fashion the next month!

      Hope it’s going well for you, Minstar! Hi to Pauly, G, Kensho, Lav, Belle, Narilly & all.
