    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good evening Nesters,

    Still Friday evening here Ava. Yes, the pics I posted ion FB the other day were from the passenger seat in the front of my husband’s truck, haha. I don’t mind so much driving in the snow, it’s the other drivers that worry me. Had one hit me & total my car years ago because he apparently did not know how to drive in snow. Glad you’re getting out & about this weekend, enjoy

    Rahul, stay well!

    Pav, hope your weekend is good & relaxing too

    Narilly, cases are definitely down in my county & the neighboring county. We’re still looking for vaccines, no one has had any to give. Hopefully that will change soon.
    Hope your weekend is good!

    WE had the opportunity to meet our daughter & granddaughter for lunch today. It’s her 10th birthday, didn’t want to miss that. She’s been doing all virtual school this year & they have Friday afternoons off so it worked out great.
    Hello to everyone & wishing a safe night in the nest for all!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hey Nest. Checking in on our way to dinner. Iíve found myself thinking about how easy it would be to just slip back a margarita from the Mexican restaurant tonight, or a beer when my husband stops at the brewery. It scared me because it sounds good. And pain-killing, which is enticing with my continued gallbladder pain. Itís a lot better but an excuse for me to romanticize booze. Iím also hungry because I canít eat a lot right now, and having a little pity party because I canít eat so many foods... salad is bumming me out. So, stopping by for support. It will be ok, I know why I donít drink.

    Re: Newbies Nest

    I hope last night went ok, Kensho, and I'm sorry you're not feeling good. It is hard when a person works hard to live as healthy a lifestyle as possible and still ends up with some problems. It doesn't seem fair. It's good you know that drinking would be a temporary fix that would end up making things worse. Take care, NS

    PS: Hi, Lav! You're not alone . I have very young visitors this week. It will be fun but BUSY!! And new puppy arrives next Sat. My days of leisure/boredom are coming to an end .

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Thanks NS. I put on my big girl pants and enjoyed what I could last night. I decided I had whined and wanted long enough and I shut the voice down. We ended up having fun, and reminiscing while walking through the city center in the town I grew up in. It has changed so much, but so many things are exactly the same as when I was 8!

    What kind of pup are you getting? I may have missed the earlier discussion. You will have your hands full for sure if he/she is young! How exciting!

    We have sun here, so the day is looking upbeat. Looking forward to my morning walk with my furry one. I've decided I need to be more active. I am big on workouts, but 30 min. in an 8 hour day sitting at the computer is not enough. On those office days, I need to do more.

    Have a good day everyone!

    Hi, All:

    Another beautiful weekend which is worrisome because it should be raining. It is enjoyable until you think too much...

    Kensho I feel you! It can be frustrating when there's not that easy fix to relaxing. I'm glad you made it through. What can you eat? Maybe some soups? There are so many recipes online - maybe google a few to keep you entertained and satisfied?

    Can't wait to meet the new puppy, NS! You're brave.

    Happy SOBER SUnday,
    Pav

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi everyone, sorry I haven't been checking in over the past few weeks. I just really hit my breaking point and had to shut down any and all extra effort to do anything other than stay sober. Which I am very happy to say I did.

    We are gradually emerging from the fog of grief. I'm still exhausted from too many nights either sleepless or sleeping on the floor with our sick doggo, but she is starting to feel better and I hope for a return to normal sleep soon.

    I've got a lot to read back through and to catch up on. For now, I hope you all are doing well.

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Rahul, congrats on those 7 big years! That was a big milestone for me for some reason. I’m so proud of all of your accomplishments. I hope your emotional health has improved, too. Feeling isolated stinks. Hugs, dear man.
    Pav, I have a neck issue, too. I find that Salonpas pain patches and a heating pad help quite a bit. Stretch it, too. The more I favored it, the worse it got, so stretching it helps me. I hope you feel better now.
    Kensho, there are just going to be times where those pity parties are thrown attended, and wallowed in. I have the tee shirt! As long as we make it to the other side, they serve a purpose. Hope your tummy is doing better. Health problems wear you down. Feel better soon!
    Pav, was it you who heard the guy on the radio regarding face masks? That really fries my bacon. If face masks don’t work, how the hell do they explain the fact that the flu is down 98%? Any thinking person must realize that a barrier will block what you are trying to prevent from passing through. It boggles my mind that we are still fighting this battle. I mean the proof is irrefutable.
    Had a nice outside visit with hubs’ nephew and his girlfriend. We all wore masks. It felt good to speak with other live human beings.
    Hope everyone has a peaceful evening. Byrdie

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good evening Nesters,

    SO glad to see some folks checking in today
    It has poured rain all day, ugh. Still some snow laying around but now we get the mud, yuck.

    Kensho, happy to hear you made it thru the rough patch. Pity parties are dangerous as hell for me so I know I can’t go there, regardless of what’s going on. You did a great job moving thru the darkness.
    Back when my gall bladder issues started I just knew I didn’t want to go back to the hospital so soon after my son was born. Yes, I am a bit stubborn haha. The trial & error with my diet took a while but I soon figured out what i could eat without causing pain, you will too. Hang in there.

    NS, I wish you the very best with your young company & of course with the puppy. You will be exhausted but happy I’m sure

    Pav, I think we got your rain by accident, sorry.

    Wags, so glad you checked in, we missed you. I hope you & your pup get back to normal very soon, hang in there

    Byrdie, it is nice to see other humans once in a while. Never thought I’d be saying something like that, haha!

    Baked up another batch of sourdough donuts - have to do something with that starter once/week, right?
    Wishing everyone a safe night in the nest!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi, All:

    That wasn't me, Byrdie. I live in an area where almost everyone believes in face masks - there's not a lot of controversy thankfully. I have been stretching, massaging and using advil. It is definitely muscle related as it goes into my shoulder and arm. I have to just get it to a place to relax. I had decided to get a massage this weekend but the place I usually go doubled its prices. I understand why they would have to do that, but I got sticker shock. I know eventually I'll have to give in but I'll have to save a bit first...

    Wags, so so sorry for what you are going through. What a time. Take good care.

    Lav - dang, I hate it when rain goes to the wrong coast! Hope the Stella are afloat.

    I really can't believe it is already March. Almost a year since the first "stay at home" order. It went both extremely quickly and painfully slow...

    Happy SOBER Monday.
    Pav
