    Happy Un Hung Tuesday everyone.

    No word on the contact tracing. I think I need to change my resume up to make it less about oil and gas.

    Our Covid numbers are through the roof, today we are going to hear about new restrictions. We had a anti mask rally here on Saturday FFS, how embarrasing. People say we are the province most similar to the U.S. and not in a good way
    We had over 1500 new cases yesterday and day before so I am sure S__t is gonna hit the fan today.

    Yeah, I slept through the construction this morning, must have been tired. They should be done in about a week I think.

    Enjoy your mini Friday Pav, isn't it nice that you are not drinking on your Friday? That was always THE night to drink for me...and Saturday, Sunday, Monday...etc.

    Shades I love the garden and the tribute to your son, I will have to arm wrestle Ava for the purple bulb as I want that one too.

    Byrdie, that sucks about the Vertigo but very nice about the old customer calling you. I can imagine how good that felt, we all know you are a rawk star as G would say.

    Wags, you always know So much- hey did you finish the Queen's Gambit? It was So good and the Undoing with Nicole Kidman is really good too.

    Walk- 100 days!!! Woo hoo!!!

    Have a good one everybody and don't drink today.

    Hi Nest. We did travel to see my husband's parents, but we did it safely. Quarenteen, then Covid tests for everyone, and even another for my husband when we got here. A 12 hour straight drive, peeing on the roadside, since the gas stations were packed with people. We have been wearing masks in their house, but spending a lot of time outdoors in the amazing weather - at least until we get my husband's test back. It has been both nice to be in another environment, and so weird being masked. Not ideal, but I'll take it.

    I am reminded often here how much others drink. They all know not to bother me with it. It almost seems a little pathetic now. I just don't want that burden any more. I thought it through the other night, as his family has been a temptation for me in the past - and I remember wanting them to go to bed so I could sneak shots from their pantry. And wanting MORE of the margaritas they got at the restaurant, and being upset that they drank more than their exact fair share. It never felt like enough - endless wanting. I can say that nearly 3 years without the stuff now, and it is MUCH easier. I just know that I don't drink it, and then the thoughts leave me alone.

    This is the first visit here being gluten and corn free (and usually soy and dairy too - as much as possible), and they are trying to accommodate as best they can. I am really good at taking care of myself so I don't burden them, but they are actually trying, which is heartwarming. They are not the most healthy people and thought I was a nut for quitting drinking, so this is different. I really don't care what they think now... but the support is welcome!

    PAV, enjoy more sleep! It is SO golden!!

    AVA, sorry about your migraine, feel better soon.

    Byrdie, vertigo is the WORST! Hope you get through that soon!

    Shades, your garden sounds like a nurturing, beautiful place. Glad you can spend some time there and remember your son.

    Best to everyone - Nar, NS, Wags and everyone else. I am thankful for you all.
    Kensho

    Done. Moving on to life.

    Greetings Nesters,

    I know Thanksgiving is almost here because we picked up our free pie courtesy of our financial planner, haha. It’s a nice gift, an apple pie made locally, yum.
    I am mentally rearranging things a bit for Thursday but it will be fine. My DIL’s dad doesn’t drink & my grandsons certainly don’t so there will be no AL here

    Shades, such a lovely garden plan you have, that’s wonderful. Be sure to post some pics of your colorful amaryllis when they bloom
    I’m sitting on about 2 1/2 acres & it’s fun to have many different gardens.

    Byrdie, how are you doing today?

    Wags, even in retirement some days are just too busy for the likes of me, haha! I don’t know how I managed all I did for all those years but I do know I fell apart afterwards. Never again.

    Walk, glad to hear you are feeling better. Keep going!!

    Pav, enjoy your time off, it’s precious.

    Ava, sorry about the headaches. I never had migraines but I do remember a few very nasty hormonal headaches, ugh. Talk to the doc, get some help.

    Narilly, do people frown on the oil & Gas industry? To me a solid resume is a solid resume!
    Sorry to hear about your rising Covid numbers. Our news just reported a death every one minute in the US this week, how horrible. Stay safe!

    Kensho, I hope your visit goes well & there’s no issues re food & AL. You are strong in your quit now & we will be here if you need anything

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

    Lav
