      Re: Newbies Nest

      oh, @KENSHO.. big, fat hugs. I can really understand how you would feel after a couple nights of that.. or even just one. And I understand your conflicting feelings. But just because you don't fit into that world, doesn't mean you don't fit into the rest of the world! You're not wrong or elitist.. or judgemental. Everyone is allowed to make their own decisions about how they want to live their lives.. and of course you're going to be on completely different wavelengths with different interests if you're separated by 10 drinks. I don't really know what to say except that I think you're interesting and intelligent and kind and thoughtful and funny and I would LOVE to hang out with you for several days to talk about art, movies, hiking and healthy things, books, decorating, food! and a number of other things. Get some time for yourself today! And here's to gray hair streaks!

      Re: Newbies Nest

      LC I reiterate what you defined about KENSHO experience with old friends.... I too am grateful that KENSHO doesnít fit in with the old party peops. Also very humbling experience to see others lag behind in personal growth while we believe in ourselves and move foreword. Be strong, stay healthy and most of all be who you want to be and never regret days gone past that were negative . Your positivity is important for your wellbeing and most of all for your children...

      Nursie.. the trauma that you have been thru is very difficult to manage, I am so sorry. I read the link about what happened to your mom. Itís always amazing how some things that happen in life changes who we are in so many ways. We cannot change what has happened in the past as much as we pray every day for guidance and to take one day at a time . While in most cases we eventually know the scars are there forever and for that reason it has given us time to examine what we really want in life. Life is a gift.

      About vacuums my 2 cents is the ROOMBA ! itís great does a fantastic job and there several models at reasonable prices. One less chore to do...Very helpful at this time since both ankles are broken.

      I am waiting for the autopsy report on my son. I hope it comes after Christmas . Still donít know what to do with his ashes. He loved horses and dogs. So thatís a good start. too soon for me to cope with all that right now. so just knowing heís free and home now . Iím sure he is happy and looking down on me send me angel hugs every day.

      Wag so happy to hear your business is doing well ... itís the hard work you did to make it all come together. Stay strong .

      Pav...teens are enough to make anyone go nuts.. I had 5 boys and teens at the same time... we all survived those trying days. One not so much... I canít imagine teens now with social media.


      Have a AF Sunday... Byrdie, Guitarista, BelleGirl, Cowboy,Moffit,Narilly... love and hugs...sending blessings your way!

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Good evening Nesters,

      I have to tell you Kensho that I am a lot like you - I don’t fit in anywhere either & I’ve learned to be perfectly OK with it, honestly!
      I outgrew my highschool friends while I was in college. I changed & they did not. I developed a whole network-of work friends over the years but they all have been moving to Floria one by one, haha!!!
      Just be happy to be yourself, it’s the best thing really

      LC, nice on looking up the old friend! Sounds like an exciting spring may be in the cards for you!

      Hang in there with the teens everyone, it does get better, I promise!

      I’m baking more cookies this evening, no grandkids here to help but they will take care of eating them. Tonight is ‘Swedish Gingies’, yum
      Hello to everyobe!

      Wishing everyone a safe night in the nest!

      Good Morning!!
      I tried doing morning yoga today. I’m glad I did! I will need a lot of practice, but I am happy I did something intentional to start my day!
      KENSHO, I enjoy your posts so much. And I’m also glad you don’t fit in with that crowd. You are awesome and you fit in with healthy people!!
      Shades, thank you for your kind words. Regarding the ashes, I kept some of my brother’s and some of my mom’s after they died. The rest were buried. Both autopsies took quite some time- and both were quite difficult to read and process emotionally. I will be thinking of you!

      I hope everybody has a great day today! Xoxo

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Kensho, I have found as I get older, I don't really fit in anywhere either. The beauty of getting older is that I care less and less about it. I tell you, I take more of a ration of crap about not eating seafood than I do about not drinking. I've had people almost FORCE a shrimp down my throat (fork to the mouth) and I WILL NOT BUDGE. So that has actually been weirder to deal with than not drinking. I just say 'everyone has a quirk or two!' and move on! I meant to respond a few weeks ago, but No Sugar mentioned that I'm in several support groups, none for not eating seafood but I have found solace in those. I joined one for Not Parent Expected when doing a DNA test. I'm in one for loved ones of people who've had a heart attack. I'm in one for cake/cookie decorators who want to bake for a living. I'm a member of a Crohn's/Colitis group, and the most famous of all, MWO. Birds of a feather! If I could find one for people with Soul Sucking jobs, I'd join that, too. I told my hubs when I pass on, to scatter my ashes on the beach, because I sure as heck never found time in life to go over and spend time there! This deal I'm working on hit a legal snag on Thursday, we got that worked out Friday, now they've come back with something about our insurance 'what if your installer hits a gas line while installing and blows up the shopping center we're in?'. I'm so flabbergasted I haven't responded yet. I guess I'll just say, 'we're insured!'. Sometimes my life seems like a bad sitcom. Lots of things that in the past, I'd have found a reason to drink AT. Thank goodness that I'm not dealing with all that, too. One day at a time!

      Hugs to all, Byrdie

      Good Monday evening Nesters,

      Yucky day around here all dark & raining, tomorrow too. Then we get snow on Wednesday, seems like a bad joke haha!!
      Had to wrangle the cat into the catbox to take her for a nail clipping - she’s been drawing blood, nasty.

      Nursie, good luck with the yoga. I think I’ve become too stiff to bend & strtch like that anymore.

      Byrdie, can you guarantee the world won’t blow up tomorrow??? Geez, wth do people want these days? Sorry the stress continues.
      Maybe some of those other bakers will talk You into taking a leap into baking for $$$

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