      Yo fam! W'dup.

      Thanks Wags. How's the missus? Pauly, there's still some good mojo 'round this joint. Look at Pav's life. Wouldn't surprise me if she was a regular in the gossip columns given her party schedule. Sheesh, everytime i turn around she's off to a social event of some sort....... (Pav. i wrote i was flat out working like a lizard drinking. lol)

      Great news for your Sis and you Slo! It looks like she has been very lucky. Let's hope she can understand that and run with this new opportunity to live. I think i have been spared on a few occassions and i try to remember this and be grateful for this gift of life. Take care over there.

      Ava, re your love of walking. Have you been to MSAC in Albert park? Try the big outdoor pool for walking/swimming. It's a nice open vibe.

      Big waves to y'all. Off to strum a geetar with some folk.

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Good evening Nesters,

      WE were blessed with another beautiful day, so nice. Tomorrow will be a rain day but that's OK.

      Slo, that's great news about your sister. She is very lucky, blessed. I hope she continues on the sober path & has a great life
      You must be feeling a lot of relief too.

      Ava, I've been wanting another dog since my big dog passed on nearly two years ago. I don't think I have the energy for a puppy though, maybe something a little older & looking for a fur-ever home. Good luck with Mads & Carl.

      LC, glad to see yo stop in & I hope things are looking brighter for you soon

      Hello to Wags, Narilly, Pauly, G, Pav, kensho, Byrdie & everyone. Daisy, where are you?

      I'm sneezing my head off after spending time outdoors today & yesterday. Probably allergies & taking Zyrtec 2X/day as suggested by my allergist is not helping.
      Another side effect of aging? Probably, LOL

      Wishing everyone a safe night in the nest!

      Good morning, Nesters!
      TFIF, right?

      Slo, I was so relieved and happy to hear of your sister's positive outcome with the surgery and findings.. I really hope she'll be able to take this as a new chance for a different path.
      Lav, I am beginning to feel better mentally.. physically, my digestive system and my left shoulder blade aren't impressed with my new health routine .. but I'm taking care to take care.
      big hugs to all of you, Byrdie, NS, Ava, Pav, Pauly, Nar, Kensho, Gman, Wags, Daisy.. I'm sure I must be missing someone..
      Have a nice Friday..xx
      This is giving me something new to "obsess" about and I figure (as it isn't in any way restrictive, so to say) it really is helping my mental state.

      Hi, all--

      Lav, we've been having beautiful days here, too, and my allergies are also kicking in. I feel like I have a cold all the time, and eyes are so itchy. OTC meds help somewhat, but I might move on to something stronger...

      Wags, good to see you pop in. Hope all is well with the students and the surgery.

      Nar, sounds like a great day.

      Hope all is well in everyone else's land. So funny, I don't feel like a party animal G, at all. But I guess I do get out some. Seeing live music tonight, and hosting a few people for dinner tomorrow. I won't drink, and I know I'll feel fine in the mornings. I am so grateful for that!

      xo

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Hi Nest Friends! It's been a weird week. Blizzard kept kiddos home for two days. PAV, I got snoozeville and it never ceases to amaze me how happy I am when I get sleep!!! I seem to need 9-10 hours a night for best functioning, and my world doesn't usually allow that.

      I got my files figured out, didn't lose anything. Just stress. It DOES seem like many of us are hitting extremes - good day, crazy day, bad day, fabulous day... back and forth. And when NS is having drinking dreams.... well, something's going on! Not that you aren't allowed NS, but I have not heard you mention that before. Some kind of volatile energy in the world right now.

      And G-the-MAN! 6 months!!!! Way to go my favorite sober fellow online.... I am proud of you! I really appreciate your honest introspection and humor about this whole topic. You are doing the work friend, and you seem solid. High five!!

      Slo, glad your sister is ok - you must be so relieved! I'm sure you have high hopes for her recovery with alcohol. As someone said, it's her decision. You are a good role model though - and that's all you can be.

      Watched my show last night, and the fella is still back at drinking. And he's being an ass, and lying to everyone around him, risking what means the most to him. It reminds me how quickly I would be right back at lying about my quantity, abut why I want to go here or there, sneaking to refill bottles, etc. I know that drinking would, unfortunately, go right back to that bad, bad place. Because one drink is not enough for someone like me - I would have to hide the amount that I would want to drink.

      It actually crossed my mind last night that if some particular event happened in our future, a BIG event... I almost said out loud to my husband, "If that happens, even I will take a shot!" I was thinking of it as a comment of how relieved I would be and how much I would want to celebrate the event. But then my thoughts started running... could I really have a shot for that? Would that be something to look forward to? What would happen if I did? How would I feel? Blah, blah, blah..... And then we watched this show and I remembered that I know exactly what would happen. I would turn in to a lying, obsessed person who dislikes herself. As NS reminded me once, it's not the QUANTITY that makes the alcoholic, it's the OBSESSION.

      So, I won't indulge those thoughts any longer than they take to run in and right back out of my mind.

      Have a good weekend Everyone!

      morning nesters

      Great news about your sister slo. Im amazed her liver is ok. I hope they didnt tell her that as if it was me i would of been like, well nothing the matter with me then and off i would go drinking. That al brain is amazing at telling us what we want to hear. I didnt have a blood test for ten years as i didnt want to be told how bad my liver was or that god forbid my dr would know i had a problem.

      Pauly, one summer was more than enough to spend with your sperm donor. Like you, my mothers third husband was the man i call my father, he was a grandfather to my children and loved my brother and myself. A beautiful man whom i loved dearly.

      G, i am still trying to figure out what the MSAC means, is it the big pool dooby thingy? Do many people get there? i really would like a 50 metre pool to myself. I would probs go after work as its close by at 1.30pm ish. If its what i think you mean that is. Wow that was a real woman sentence that one ha ha.

      Lav, i would definitely go an older rescue dog, i tried to but it would have been easier to adopt a small child. Mads is now on Tramal once or twice a day, i can see that she is deteriorating and its breaking my heart but i can only love her more. she has been with me for so much, sober and drunk. if she could only talk, or maybe not!

      NS, unusual for you to have two drinking dreams, too much stress at the moment maybe?

      Kensho, i used to say that i would drink if anything super stressful happened but its not my go to now so i know i wont. I have the tools to not drink and boy have i had some events that could have made me drink. I know when i lose mads that i wont drink, she would never want me to have the life i had before, my friend robert made me promise i would not drink because he died. Nothing is worth that drink into hell again absolutely nothing.

      My son is home so i am carl quiet this morning and its bliss. having a cuppa then going to go for a lovely long walk and start the day. no plans after that except maybe some housework but i just seem to keep looking at it. The weather is cooling down, slippers on in the morning, cardy also. i do prefer winter i must say though its soooo dark.

      Take care xxx

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Good evening Nesters,

      The rain we were promised never appeared so we got to enjoy another lovely, allergy ridden day, haha!!
      I've always had a touch of allergy symptoms at the change of seasons but it's never been this severe. I wonder what's going on?

      Ava, I am ready for an older dog, just need to talk my housemate into it, LOL
      I'm glad that you are able to keeps Mads comfortable & you're right in that she wouldn't want you to drink

      NS, about those two dreams - forget them, they're just BS!
      I have them too even after all this time. I figure my very deep seated fear of being out of control again is responsible for the dreams. Don't fear because we don't drink, right?

      LC, so happy to hear you are coming out of your funk. We're just human & we have low times. Thank goodness they're not permanent. So what's your new eating plan all about? Granny Lav here needs to shed some serious winter weight.

      Pav, hope you have a good weekend!

      Pauly, my allergy twin

      kensho, I only wish I could sleep like I did as a young adult. Seems like such a looooong time ago, LOL
      Hope your weekend is good.

      Hello to the rest of the crew & wishing everyone a safe night in the nest!
