      I GOT THE JOB!! You are the first ones to know Thanks for all your support

      Murph, good job, family can be tough I know but way to go hanging in there. Just know it won’t be just one drink, we never have only one drink. I mean what’s the point of only having one drink? I never could figure that out.
      Belle, you are such a goo mom, it’s so good you are not drinking.

      Pav, I am going to visit my MIL in the hospital now. I understand how hard it can be with the oldies. It sucks. My hubby’s dad died 2 years ago and my dad 10 years ago. They both had long drawn out illness. Dialysis, heart attacks, strokes, ugh....

      Overit, I have lost posts a few times, totally annoying.

      Wags, NS, xo

      Hello everyone, it’s a great day!

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Excellent news, @narilly! SO happy for you!! Your persistence has paid off! I hope it turns out to be a
      likeable job for you.

      @KENSHO, your husband sure is being challenging to your sobriety on this family vacation. My husband was like that to me too on a couple of vacations, so I get it. He’s being more respectful now, but after those, I still don’t see just the two of us making a habit of vacationing together when our nest is empty. I don’t like being made to feel like I’m getting in the way of his partying.

      @murph54, I come from a family where favoritism is rampant too. And, on the flip side, ostracism. It is very painful. As far as your husband’s birthday goes, maybe next year just take him out to dinner, or get together with his side of the family, or celebrate with just your kids & grandkids. Minimize these rebuffs.

      @NoSugar, having your grand babies move away must feel like a second empty nest. I wish they could stay living close by you. And they will miss the frequent contact with you too! Hugs to you.

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Thanks, @Slo . I did a really bad job with the empty nest first time around re: drinking and of course, my kids left at college age when we all had pretty much independent lives anyway. I've been involved with our grandsons at a much more intense level, almost daily, so in some ways, it is a bigger change. This time, however, I know so much more and won't be blindsided!

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Good evening Nesters,

      I survived my 12+ hour marathon with 2 busy boys yesterday, haha! It was extra tough with them because we’ve been socked in with heavy rain & I couldn’t get them out to run off some of that energy. Ona positive note I slept better than usual last night

      Narilly., CONGRATS to you
      I hope this job is a perfect fit & you love it there!

      G, keep on enjoying your travels

      NS, I sure hope you get to spend some wonderful weekends & vacations with your grandson as time goes on

      Hi there Matt, Slo & everyone checking in later.

      I’ve been working on getting things ready for a craft fair next month, fun times!
      Wishing everyone a safe night in the nest!

      Congrats, Narilly! I was going to offer you MY job if you didn’t get it.
      Im so happy for you!
      Murph, you sure can’t choose your family. Trust me on that one. I learned a year ago that the dad who raised me isn’t my bio dad! I sure wish I could have a conversation with my mother now. She’s been gone for 35 years. She was a mean sober person, never drank at all, that’s a frightening thought, no telling how she would have behaved if she drank. I’m so sorry you are dealing with that. No amount of anything you do will change her. You are a saint for trying.
      As Available say, TFIF, we’ll, almost!
      Hugs to all. Byrdie

      afternoon nesters

      I have man flu but am reading (trying to) each and every day. All i can say is thank god i dont drink or smoke anymore. Just dealing with the flu is enough without the extra additives. Took 3 visits to the doctor before i got antibiotics and they seem to be working now.

      Oh Nar i am so happy for you getting this job and i hope its all it should be.

      back to bed i go.

      happy travels G, its bloody freezing here and wont stop raining.

      take care xx
