    Hi, All:

    Not much to say. Way to go, Neen. 30 days is a great accomplishment. I love what NS said - it is nice to be on a road that gets easier...

    I don't have much to add. I talked to my son in college. He HATES online college so much and doesn't think it is worth the money, so I think he's going to take some time off and get a job. I highly support that - he's just bored and miserable, and he could learn what he's learning on YouTube really. He's missing field work, in-person labs, real discussions. What a bummer. He'll be fine - I'm not worried and know he'll go back.

    Happy SOBER Tuesday,
    Pav

    Happy 8 years NS! Thank you for your wisdom over the years!

    Happy 30 days JVO! Proud of you.

    It's snowing here, and nothing huge is happening - just a daughter with some anxiety. Poor thing. Good thing I'm sober and can help.

    Hugs to everyone!
    Kensho

    Done. Moving on to life.

    Greetings Nesters,

    Last night’s snowstorm was a non-event. Started with flurries then turned into rain. That’s just fine with me!
    Managed to roast everything in the oven for dinner - turkey tenderlloins, sweet potatoes & carrots & broccoli, easy
    I have the rest of the evening to get some craft work done, yay.

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

    That sounds like a perfect dinner for this type of day @Lavande. We did have some icy roads this a.m. but nothing too bad.

    @Pavati, my son will finally be finished with his degree in May. He ended up putting in an extra year, but yeah, that five year plan, plan. He did his last year virtually and couldn’t have liked it more because he’s such a homebody. I think that’s the perfect thing for your son to do. If my son was just starting, I’d have recommended that. So much money spent without the real college experience. It’s a damn shame what it costs for a college education.

    I’m glad I’m on the road that gets easier. It doesn’t feel that way now. I have those niggly feelings, of course, when I get home from work. I look forward to nicer weather. The cold and overcast skies never do me any good. We’re going to Florida in February and it’ll be great to feel that sun. No drinking for me. Dad hasn’t drunk in 3 years, and my boys know what I don’t need in my life. I’ll keep reminding them in case I forget one day.

    We have been talking about getting another dog. Well, lots of ideas are flying around. We miss our little friend so much, so so much, as it hasn’t been a week yet. But I felt a little excited as I was looking at pics of different breeds and reading about their characteristics. We’re also thinking of getting two. But not two from the same litter or same time. I read that it’s good to get them about 8-12 months apart.

    Have a good night. 😴

    Lav & Kensho - we had a similar non-event snow storm here today. The funnest part was our neighbor across the street, who is from Mexico, had never seen it actively snowing before, so it was fun to experience it through her eyes and those of her 4-y.o. daughter.

    Pav - I think it's a fantastic idea for your son to take a term or 2-3 off from school and work. I did something similar and it was one of the best decisions ever.

    Neen - I hope the sun in Florida is wonderful for you when you go there in Feb. I really miss sunshine and warmth myself right about now!


    Hellos and waves everyone. Happy almost-hump-day!
