      Good morning, Nesters!

      Welcome back, Scooby! It's great to have you here in the nest and I look forward to getting to know you better! I know on day 2 I felt sooooo relieved that I was on my way again, back on the right track. You can do this! Stay close!
      Nursie, Well done on 2 weeks!!! The 2 weeks since you first posted again have flown by (for me!) and I'm reminded of how time passes regardless of what we're doing/how we're living. Those things I thought I couldn't handle in that moment or on that day are history in the blink of an eye! It was Pauly who said that about missing people who don't check in and on the power of remaining accountable..
      Wags, glad you had a relaxing day! Well earned, I'd say!
      Lav, you were on your toes!!

      Today is my eldest's 18th birthday. It feels strange to have an 18 year old.. more so than on other birthdays, my mind is jumping back to random memories of her as a younger girl. I'm doing my best to stay in the present moment, grateful for where I am NOW, in a mindspace where I can be the mom she still needs me to be. I saw a picture of her yesterday, one that I hadn't seen before that was taken by a friend or her boyfriend, and she looked really happy. She seems to be in a good space at the moment and that's all I can really hope for. I am finding it difficult to "let her go".. finding the balance.

      Anyway, I hope everyone has a good Tuesday. Let's make it the best day we can. Yesterday I surprised myself by totally freaking out (yelling and cursing and stomping around) while I waited for almost an hour on the phone to my credit card company.. there are charges I didn't make and I got the major run around with no results. Was hung up on twice! Then I tried to send a message online (no apparent email address) and haven't had a response. I haven't been so aggressively stressed out in a long time! It was weird. I went out for a walk to calm down but I felt "off" for the rest of the evening. I guess I just felt so out of control.. not being able to get through. Today I'll send them a letter with the snail post.
      Today, Tuesday, I'll do my best to react differently to situations that might come up! I'm sure my neighbors think I'm a freak!

      Hugs to you all!

      Hi everyone hope you're all having a good day. It was lovely waking up without a hangover this morning 😀 i still feel a bit rough but at least its an improvement. Got the kids sorted and went for a swim. Now going to tackle a mountain of housework and walk the dog. Ive taken this week off work to help me get off to a better start. Day 2 now. It'll be the witching hour tonight as I'm not hungover..
      .usually if i dont drink on a night i make up for it the next night as a "reward" 🙄🙄🙄 yeah right.

      Have a great day!

      Hi, All:

      Pauly - SO TRUE. I think sometimes that people feel they have to wait to post until they've gotten it all figured out when this can be the place that they get it figured all out. I think about old timers or recent timers, too. Belle! Daisy! So many! Come say hi.

      Scooby - what's your plan? I spent a lot of time here during those first witching hours, and I read a lot of sober blogs. I liked Mrs. D is going without (go to the start of the story), Unpickled and a few others. Also, lots of baths. You got this!

      We ARE badass. That was a shift in perspective for me - at first I felt weak, dumb and flawed. I couldn't figure out how I let myself get like this. I always had control of my life! What went wrong? Well, I have come to realize that I, for a number of reasons, was vulnerable to alcohol. Now I do feel in control in a way I never have before (first started drinking at age 14!!!) I am grateful to be heading into this phase of my life with a clear head. Thank goodness.

      Happy SOBER Tuesday.
      Pav
