      Hi Nesters!
      I'm so happy for you, Ava, on your 2000 day anniversary!
      and Lav, I'm not sure if I congratulated you here on your 10 year NF quit, or if it was just in my mind..Congrats!
      Not so much going on here.. or at least, I don't have much to say. I'm reading every day and you're all in my mind!
      And I'm sober! I'm very tired from all of the work I have but my mind is in a good space.. and I'm managing to take care of myself.
      I hope to have more energy this weekend, after some good sleep.
      love to you all.xx

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Congratulations on reaching the gigantic milestone of 2000 days, Pav! You’re steadfastness and determination are always so inspiring to me.
      Sorry you’re stuck at home if that’s not where you want to be today...can you bike somewhere?

      I am starting to feel more on an even keel now, @New Sunrise, and I hope you are too. We don’t have bears in our lawns here! But we do have deer and turkeys.

      Summer break doesn’t start for another two weeks here, @KENSHO. I’m glad it’s your 2nd sober summer that you’re heading into, and that you already have one under your belt. Good luck with the camping, and I hope it’s fun and not triggering. Oh, and the sun is over here today...

      Lav, I like that you find your non-drinking SIL to be a good husband & father to your girls.

      Byrdie, working the trade show sounds brutal. And I question why your coworker had to rush home and dump you when his “child” having the surgery is an adult who had her mother with her.

      Thanks for an inspiring post, Ava. It is hard work, but you have crawled out of the pit!

      We finally have warm weather here again, and I could get out for a bike ride yesterday! That makes me feel better.

      Waves to LC, FPup, G-man, Nar, Wags, Pauly, NS, and all who visit the Nest. Hello, Steadfast!

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Happy Thursday everyone, thank you for the good luck wishes for the interview. The interview was awesome, if I had a choice this would be the place I work. The manager is very good and would help me with my career, we really hit it off.

      I feel like my career would have gone way farther if I did not drink before. I spent so many days hungover at the office, there is no way I could have done optimal work. All I cared about was when I was going to have my next glass of wine. After I quit drinking the market went to crap but now I feel I have a second chance. If I get this job I am going to work my butt off and really see where I can take my career.

      Your good wishes might pay off!!

      Hello Steady, good to see you here. You too Feral Pup.

      Cioppino? Ken, I looked it up and it looks YUM! Let's make some of that hey GMan.

      Nice having a day off Pav. I have every day off these days, haha.
      Ava, you are doing so well, I am glad you are so happy.

      Yeah, Ken, I am grateful everyday to be healthy and I never take that for granted. I am so glad I am not poisoning myself anymore.
      Hey Byrdie, your job could be a sitcom. Poor guy drinking all that tequila and then having a co worker comment about it. I am positive that has happened to me more than once.

      Have a great sober day xo

      Hello Nesters,

      We’ve been receiving severe weather warnings all day. So far we’ve had nothing but a few quick showers, no big deal.

      NewSunrise, Congrats on your 8 weeks AF
      That was about the time I finally believed in my ability to quit & stay quit. Keep going!

      Pav, CONGRATS to you on your 2000 AF days
      I am very happy for you & I hope you have a good weekend!

      Narilly, I hope you get this job - sounds like the right one for you!

      Slo, I’m with you in having deer, turkeys, groundhogs & raccoons roaming the premises. Much better than bears, oh my

      LC, thanks & I hope you can catch up on some sleep this weekend. Glad you are moving forward with us.

      Hello to Ava, Kensho, Byrdie, G, wags & every single one of you.
      Wishing a peaceful & safe night in the nest for all!

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Just checking in to say howdy to all. Both Ava and Pav have 2000 days? Did I get that correctly. Well congrats to you both, no matter how many days. you guys rock and have shown a lot of people the way.

      I'm just lost with so many issues with my son. Husband and I need to have a long talk about him. He seems to have mentally checked out of his college path. I don't see any other plans for him other than working at the grocery store 20 hours a week. that will barely pay for his eating out all the time 'high life'. There is just so much going on with him that it is taking me under too. He had another lawyer appointment and there is no resolution yet. There's more, I just cannot go on writing about it. I'm just so tired.

      Daughter's boyfriend's family invited us over to a cook-out this weekend. My policy is to not get too close to my kid's SOs families, but I guess since they invited us, it is the right thing to do. I'm not much into cookouts and it is not about the booze. I'd rather be home napping or working in the garden or my new hobby chalk painting. I painted my first piece the other day and it is pretty cool. I need a hobby to keep my mind out of bad territory.

      Better start heading for bed after taking Piper out. Ava...I took Piper for a stroller ride yesterday. It was clear that she thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm tired, but at least I'm sober today.

      Done with this drinking shit...

      Hi, All:

      Hang in there, Belle. Not all paths are straight. With your support, your son will figure it out eventually.

      Kensho - good luck with that job. I hope it works out for you!

      LC - glad to see you check in.

      I didn't calculate, but given the Aussie time difference 2,000 is today or tomorrow for me I think. That's a pretty fat milestone - thanks for all of your support!

      No Friday tickets anywhere but home I think. I did get a good hike in yesterday - I just left from my house so more of it was on concrete than usual. I feel refreshed and ready to go!

      Pav
