      Oh Ava, that was sure nice of the police woman. I'm sorry you are going through such a hard time with Mads.

      Whenever I have thoughts of drinking one of the things that runs through my mind is 'could I only have one?' and the answer is NO, one if Never going to be enough for me because I get that feeling and just want more, more, more until Blackout. I don't miss that at all.

      Life, have a great sleep. 5 am is early, I was awake at 5 because my hubby and son went snowboarding but I went back to sleep after that.

      Airports bring out the worst of humanity Byrdie. I can't imagine travelling as much as you do. I hope the rest of your week goes better.

      Hello Wags, Pav, G, Lav, everyone.
      Don't drink today.

      Good evening Nesters,,

      Just a quick hello from me. I have my grandsons overnight & have to get up early to take them to school. They may end here tomorrow night as well. That's what happens when both parents are out of town on business. Glad I can step in & be helpful

      Wishing everyone a safe night in the nest!

      Solid advice, Wags, to always remember ALL of what alcohol does to us, and not just some of what it does to us (the good parts). Like what was said on the Annie Grace podcast that I was just listening to: Alcohol TAKES more than it gives.

      Byrdie, I agree: it’s too hard to be worked to death at this age, because we can’t bounce back like a 25 y/o can.
      The next trade show is the one right before the big company meeting in May? I hope you do cut the cord before then...but I still really hope that those two outstanding deals get wrapped up and you get the payouts from them before then! If not? -c’est la vie.

      Glad you had a lunch out with friends today, Lav. Lucky boys to have Grandma Lav there for them!

      So Saturday night is the standard hockey night in Canada, Narilly? Here the people into sports (like HB) are heavy into March Madness basketball.

      Ava, it makes ME want to cry that you finally caught a break, and feel that you don’t catch many! Poor dear Mads melted her heart. But, you deserved to be let off because you weren’t doing anything with your phone anyways.

      Thanks for hearing me, Pav. Maybe I WILL feel differently by this Summer! I will have a year in by then. It’s encouraging that you still had fun in your drinking situation that you were anxious about! I can only hope it won’t be as bad as I think it will be. And if it is? Oh well; it’s just a day or two.

      @Slo, I didn't drink at either of my kid's weddings but at the first one, it was by sheer force of will because I wanted to be totally present and not to have any doubts later about what I did or did not say. I was very aware of my "not drinking" until the dancing started and then I had a blast. I loved not having to worry about stumbling or people thinking I was being wild because I had drunk too much. Too bad I didn't learn my lesson that night because my problem worsened over the next few years. By the time of the second wedding, I was comfortable in my AF-ness and enjoyed everything about the event. When it comes to dancing, I'm paradoxically less inhibited when I've not been drinking!

      Reading all the responses to @KENSHO about being able to relax and cut loose like alcohol seemed to let us do, seem to have a common thread: drinking actually allowed us to more or less happily participate in something that is truly fun for about 90 min but then becomes mind-numbingly boring if sober. At this point there is no way I want to cash in any of what's left of my time on earth in a haze or participating in activities or conversations that no one will remember. So while I believe we're capable of doing anything sober that we can do after drinking, the question is - do we want to?
