      TFiF, here I am in Vancouver! Nice waking up early and feeling good.

      LC, way to go, that is great! It should be 43 days now.

      Pav, I hope things have settled down in Cali.

      Lav, there is a huge Christmas craft fair here, not sure if I will make it though. Oh yeah, and Carrot Cake? I love it. That was our wedding cake, yummy!

      Ken, I am excited for your trip to Italy, that is going to be a blast! There is so much to do there besides drink wine.

      Wags, G, everyone, have a great weekend.
      Byrdie-, Pauly; enjoy your weekend.

      Don’t drink today, it’s gross.

      Yo friends S'up.

      Hi Narilly! Have a blast mi amiga.

      Pav, i want some of that full, rich family life you have too! haha. i'd exchange some of that chaos for some of my happiness.....er, i think.

      I reckon i'm just optimistic and relaxed more so than actually happy. But for me, i go for balance. That is my priority regarding any contentment or sanity. If i can address my passions and mission statement for life on this planet regularly without things/my time spent leaning too heavily in just one area, then i seem to be ok. It's taken me a few years to orchestrate this with work and free time for music, but the balance is ok now. Of course, this is easy for me as i am a gypsy rogue with not many responsibilities and commitments. Different when u are running a family. However, this may change dramatically for me down the track (family). I'm waffling, but my point is my happiness relies on me being able to address my passions regularly, or i go insane. When i hit family life and settle down, suspect i'm a gonna need to fit in music in drips and drabs where i can. You can read the FULL version of this diatribe at itsallaboutme.com

      Friend Kensho. Italy! Wowza. I bet you'll love it. My other band might be travelling through there next year. Imagine if i bumped into you and LC. lol. Stranger things have happened.

      The obsession for boozing really does lift dramatically with time. It's as simple as this - We've just gotta git through this day, to quote a local legend.

      It's just friday not a ticket to no freakin finger lickin KFC coated greasy chicken fried boozeville.

      Big waves to evabody. Have a bewdy.

      What a crazy week it's been. I've been going full tilt this week and just turned in my weekly activity tracker and put a disclaimer that it didn't reflect all I had done. We had some folks on vacation and that puts more stress on the rest of the team. I have so much to do and I have not adaquately prepared for my Linked In presentation on Monday and then Wednesday I'm leaving for a trade show. This afternoon, a flock of egrets landed in the yard and I was mesmerized. I felt guilty for watching them instead of doing my emails and thought, you know, those emails will be there long after these birds. Sometimes you gotta stop and smell the roses!

      Remember, it's only Friday, NOT a ticket to BoozeVille! Byrdie

      My personal opinion, Mr G, is that it's a fool's errand to chase happiness. Given my general definition, to be constantly happy is pretty much unattainable.

      Over the last 6 years I've experienced happiness and even on occasion, joy, but mostly I've felt peaceful and content. I wouldn't trade those feelings of well-being for anything, least of all booze!

      Have a good weekend, Nesters! xx, NS

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Good evening Nesters,

      Getting pretty chilly here in my part of the nest, oh boy!! Just saw next week’s long range forecast for temps of -18, GEEZ!
      I’m all packed up for tomorrow’s craft show, hope there’s a huge turnout/ You never really know with these things.
      My oldest grandson is turning 11 later this month. HE’S the reason I finally got my sh*t together & quit for good. My actual anniversary date is March, it took me that long to completely commit & I am so grateful that I finally did. I’ve protected this quit thru thick & thin, life hasn’t been all fun & roses naturally. But once I am committed to something that’s it!!!! We can all do this, we all deserve the life we truly want.

      Byrdie, I sure hope you enjoyed your bird watching this afternoon. I would have done the same thing, believe me.

      Hi to NS, G, Wags, Narilly, Kensho, Pav & everyone.
      Let’s all have a safe & cozy night in the nest!

      Lav

      Quick check in on day 4. Feeling much better today, not as down and depressed. Listening to podcasts to and from work about recovery. Working and driving straight home. No cravings today. Got a lot done at work and now just sitting on the couch with the hubby and dogs.
      Hopefully check back in before bed so I can read back!! Xoxo
      Day 1 again 11/5/19
      Goal 1: 7 days
      Goal 2: 14 days
      Goal 3: 21 days
      Goal 4: 30 days
      One day at a time.

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Morning nesters,Nursie,glad you're feeling better Lav,hope the craft fair is a huge success for you,I do love those things,Byrdie hope you can relax a bit this weekend,not much going on here I've been following a thread on another forum and this lady just keeps drinking not caring she has nerve damage from drinking and can barely walk,needs to get food from a food bank cuz she wastes her money on booze,has liver problems and the beginning of wet brain her docs have told her,it's very sad but intriguing to read,I noticed that when anyone tells her straight up she's messing up their comments get deleted and only the soothing, almost coddling posts stay,I'm wondering if that's even helpful or just enabling? I know I've had both kinds of responses towards me but still don't know which ones helped or made me wanna drink more it's just something to think about,waves to the gang and wishes for a happy and healthy day!
      I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

      I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"

      Off the table no MATTER what.

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Happy Unhung Saturday, Nesters!

      I've had a shopping kind of a day.. a bit of therapy, perhaps.. I know it's not the best, but it's a rare occasion when I can just stroll in a store and look at what ever I like without having to worry about the time. Towards the end, I was surprised and a bit annoyed that wine seemed interesting. I thought I might be jinxing myself by writing about it yesterday. It took a few minutes to talk to myself, to remind myself that the brief "fun" I would have with the first glass would turn into a nightmare. I had the girls in focus, the fact that I haven't subjected them to drunken me in a nice long time.. I've been wanting to talk to them but have been waiting for a calm moment.. and I'm excited about that. I wouldn't want to f*** it all up.. I wouldn't want to be back in my little world/hell.
      I'm trying not to eat junk food right now either.. After I decided I definitely would not drink, potato chips jumped in front of me.. and candy. I thought about it and decided, no. I can have a treat at the end of a week.. if I want. I've been substituting my normal junk food with healthier treats.. smoothies instead of ice cream, etc. The thing is, I feel so much better and more stable when I don't eat sugar.. but the pull is still there.
      yeah, yeah..

      Nursie, you're sounding like you're feeling much better after a couple of days.. I hope you had a nice evening on the sofa with hubs and dogs.. Are you watching something good at the moment?
      Lav, I hope you have a fun time at the craft show! Gosh you're having the cold temps there!! I thought we were cold at 46°F!
      Byrdie, I love egrits! Great decision to stop and watch them for a bit. Get a little break in.

      Big hugs to Kensho, Gman, NS, Wags, Pav, Ava, Wags, Pauly!! and everyone else flying or stopping by today.. Let's make it a good one. xx
