      Good morning everyone, my concert was great and I did sing my heart out.

      [QUOTEI really think that significant others who don't support sobriety MUST have an issue with their own drinking. Why else would they feel so threatened by it?][/QUOTE]
      Ken I think this is really true. I used to badger people to drink when I was drinking and couldn't stand it when I was around people who didn't drink. I mean, what is wrong with them? Don't they know how awesome it is to drink?
      Your hubby sounds like he is being an ass, obviously he does not know how AL effects your life. I always used to cave and start drinking on holidays. That is why I am six months behind Pav and Ava in my sobriety. I went to Florida and said F'it and had a big glass of red wine and then it was down hill from there. Stick to it Ken, you are doing great. Keep coming back.

      Over it- glad you are hangin in there, one day at a time right!

      Pav, yeah 80's bands are fun, its great to know all the words

      G Man- Hola amigo.
      Ava- glad you are starting to feel better
      Matt, Wags, Byrdie, Lav, Sun, Belle, everyone, have a great day. Tomorrow I start my New Job and I am going to kick butt!

      Good evening, all.
      G, it sounds like you are having a real adventure! Travel safely, friend!
      Im taking some vacation next week and am almost giddy at the prospect! I think we are going to have houseguests so I spent the weekend cleaning. It’s embarrassing how much dust can accumulate when you aren’t looking. I’m glad I don’t have to try and figure out how to sneak and drink while they’re here.
      Hope everyone has an easy evening. Byrdie

      Monday evening greetings to all

      Hot & sunny as predicted today, the heatwave has begun, ugh!
      Grateful I had plenty to do inside where it’s nice & cool.
      Everyone sounds good, that makes me happy.

      Narilly, we know you’re going to kick butt tomorrow. Wishing you the very best

      Byrdie, some time off sounds like a great idea, yay!

      Hello to everyone & wishing a safe night in the nest for all!

      Evening nesters

      Nar, have a great 1st day at work tomorrow, you will do us all proud.

      Wags, i so agree that drinking is un-fun. I watched a show last night where a woman in Aus has been sober 18 months and found that everything revolved around drinking so she started a sober social group and it is growing and growing. I thought what a great idea. As she said, she thought her life would be so boring sober but its twice as much fun. I just appreciate remembering everything.

      Kensho, you are sounding good. I hope the rest of your holiday is enjoyable.

      G, when do you come home, i hope you have something warm to wear off the plane. Im jealous. -2 at 4.30am on my way to work. brrrr

      Managed a day at work just. Amazing how the energy levels are depleted after being in bed for a week. Onwards and upwards i say.

      Sunrise, glad you are over your funk. I always associated getting sober as like grieving and losing your best friend (al). All the stages of grief i went through getting sober although i have no fond memories of al.

      A picture of carl. He will be 6 months old soon. Time flies.IMG20190607072746.jpg

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Good Morning All,

      Thanks for all the support! I knew I could do it, did it before so I knew it would come to an end. I don't know if the extreme attitude could be considered a 'dry' drunk, but as long as it was dry, I could live with it. Alcoholics do to tend to be very sensitive people and that sure fits me to a T. It is done and onward and upward from here.

      I was busy yesterday working on my little "Brick" chair. That has been the most difficult piece of wood that I have ever worked on! It just absorbed the humidity like crazy and would never dry for me till I brought inside in the cooler climate. I worked on it all day yesterday and put the last coat on this morning. I will bring it in soon and let it finish drying. It has so many dents and scares on it and that is pretty cool, I remember how some of them got there. It is fresh and ready for a new generation to use it.

      I am tired and will stop today, pool time for me and another good book to start. It is great to be able to read again. I have so many books that I have bought in the last 5 years but I have not been able to hold my head down long enough to read. It is great I can do that again.

      Hubby is thinking that he may be home on Thurs! One job done, one he is on today and the other cancelled. With the 4th being next week and in the middle of the week, when he gets home it is likely he will stay. He is to go to a training on a new piece of equipment they will be using on the 8th in Atlanta and we might just drive up there together. Atlanta is always fun if you can figure out all the Peach Tree Rds. This is the first training he has ever been sent on with this company, he is thinking that this is a sign of things to come, basically a home office position. I hope so.

      Narilly, I hope your first day at work is great. I wish a long and successful career with them!

      Avail, Carl is so darn cute! I would love to have a dog, but hubby is a cat person and I like them too. Our fur baby is a rescue and does have some trust issues, I have no idea what kind of environment he came from, but he is hoot. He gets pretty bossy at times and we have to call him down. Last night, for the first time, he got mad at us and planted himself on hubby's desk and refused to move for the night. He was waiting because he knew that his dad would let him get away with murder.

      Hello to everyone and I hope everyone have a wonderful Sober Tuesday. Today is an R&R day for me!

      Good morning everyone! Another beautiful day to wake up to in God's country. Today is day 19 and I was thinking this morning how exciting it will be to be in the 3 digits. (I know it's a ways off but it will be here before we know it) I've never accomplished that before but I definitely will this time.

      I appreciate everyone being here day in and day out.

      Have a great day!

      Hola friends!

      Sunrise, enjoy your R&R!

      Overit, i've hit 100 on a few occassions. It sure feels good. It will happem before you know it, though sometimes time seems to drag. And when time feels like it's slow, i try to absolutely relish and embrace it, coz ya know......life is damn short. I've only got today. So i say let my AF time drag on to 365 days! lol. Not far off 300. Wowza!

      Ava, i'm back next week. Enjoying ecuador at the moment. Met chica # 2 today for breakfast. She's really nice and we get along well. # 1 didn't quite workout, but we parted as friends. P.S. I'm not on some women conquering fest through latin america lol. I'm serious about finding a decent latina who wants to settle down with me. I just like latin women which is mostly why i'm here. We're getting together again on friday/saturday for a coastal excursion. She's bringing her daughter and some whale watching is on the cards. She doesn't knock my socks off, but she has a cosy warm vibe i really like. Anyway, we'll see what eventuates.

      I seem to be more emotionally stable this time around where love is concerned. haha. No boozing thoughts or desires. Feeling pretty solid.

      Big waves to evabody! Take it easy out there.

      'I am part of all that I have met, yet all experience is an arch wherethro', gleams that untravelled world whose margins fade, forever and forever when I move'

      Zen soul Warrior. Freedom today-
