    Morning nesters

    3B, great work on your 60+ days, life is certainly calmer without the guilt shame and remorse in our lives each and every day. You will never ever regret becoming sober. I appreciate the reminder of your friend not turning up due to a hangover, i did that so many times in my drinking career.

    MIA again, never seems to be enough hours in the day atm. Been back to the drs a few times as i am sure my iron is at an all time low. had a full blood count the other day so waiting for the results and hopefully an iron transfusion as they look at what is causing this. i work for a few hours then nap and its so annoying. 10 hours plus sleep a day is way too much for someone who lived on 5 hours.

    Kensho, i am an introvert but i figure that i spend so much time talking to people through the day that i dont need to physically see people. Glad you are starting to feel better. Lemon cake is made with almond flour, eggs and lemon. i have found some delicious recipes that are keto and made a flourless chocolate cake the other day and a peanut butter slice with melted chocolate on top 75% cocoa. i think i have done more cooking since i have been doing this than i have in years and so quick and easy.

    Wags, i hope your fur baby is well now and you can get back into your bed. i know i would do exactly the same thing for my Carl. We seem to spend a lot of time together now as my son has moved out and my daughter goes to her bf's a few days a week. i have not had so much ME time in 30 years and i love it.

    Have my quote to get dental work done, over $10000 but its a part of my sober journey that i want to do. Never when i was drinking would i have been able to afford this let alone have it done. definitely a GA and will need two surgeries. I just want to be able to eat in all parts of my mouth ha ha. i could not get this done without being unconscious for it. dental phobia is the worst.

    well better start work so i can plan my nap.

    take care and glad you are all warming up, cooling down here but i love this weather. hoping i dont have to go back to work with winter coming up.

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good evening Nesters,

    We had another nice day, warm enough to go out without a jacket, yay!
    Made my fav vegan lasagne with cashew ‘ricotta’ & lots of fresh veggies - zero calories, HA HA!!! Sometimes you just want something that tastes good

    Wags, In addition to signing up at 4 different places for an appt I’ve also been using vaccinefinder.org & all those locations just say they have vaccines but no appointments available. It’s crazy!!
    I hope your pup is all better now & you can all finallyget some decent sleep!!

    Pav, I definitely do not like being large, Lol. I’m just afraid I won’t be able to lose the extra weight, my metabolism has just about shut down over the past few years. Good luck

    NS, Congrats on the new puppy, yay!
    They usually calm down after the first few nights. I put my dog’s crate in the corner of my bedroom & 9 years later she still parks herself in the crate to sleep. Dogs are very habit driven

    Ava, I sure hope you find out what’s going on with your iron level soon, geez. I imagine you are feeling like a limp noodle at this point.
    I think the dental work is such a good idea, you’ll feel so much better afterwards & enjoy eating again.

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

    Wise NoSugar once said "Whatever drinking or smoking weed brings out in you that you are longing for, is already in you. It isnít coming from the drug. The trick is to find a healthier way to release it"

    Everything I was looking for in weed and alcohol I've found in sobriety

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi, All:

    Heh heh, 3BOW!

    I've been cooking some recipes with wine and to make things easier I bought a four pack of those little bottles of wine. They are very SWEET (the brand I got), so not perfect for cooking. I am not at all tempted by them, and anyway my husband has alcohol all over the house. If I wanted to drink I could have the good stuff. I was imagining that glass of red wine with my delicious pasta in Italy, but really the truth is I don't want that. I want three LARGE glasses of wine and then a whiskey nightcap. Why bother with the one. I'll stick to my bubbly water and have more calorie room for dessert. I actually have been saving for a trip to Italy and was going to do it this year, but now maybe next (unless everyone else is also!).

    Wags, that poor puppy and poor you! Did you make (construct) the bed that she sleeps in? Is this a common ailment? I appreciate your tips for getting vaccine.

    Ava - I hope you figure out your iron soon. And you are worth an expensive trip to the dentist.

    I have had awful hormone headaches the last two mornings so have skipped my yoga. I'm seeing my doctor about it next week. I am glad it is lighter out after work - so I can get out more and do what I like to do for exercise.

    Happy SOBER Thursday,
    Pav

    Crack me up, 3BOW . Yes, you are now on the top shelf of the pantry, shoved to the back!! I also occasionally cook with wine so the mini bottles are convenient but as a general rule, having NONE around if possible, especially until a person is very grounded in their quit is a good idea. My husband always has beer in the basement refrigerator for the ONE he occasionally drinks on a Friday (who does that??) but I've never liked it so it isn't an issue. Good on you, Pav, for avoiding temptation all these years.

    Well, Puppy got out of her crate downstairs last night (husband apparently did not latch the door correctly ) so she was free when I came down this morning but we couldn't find any evidence of accidents or damage so that's a relief!

    Good evening Nesters,

    We had a beautiful 71 degree sunny day. Of course tomorrow we go back to chilly damp weather. I got out & cleared my herb garden, need a few new plants this year.

    3BOW, you can just stay in the back of NS’s pantry & don’t cause any trouble, haha!!

    Pav, I just gave up cooking with wine, anything to avoid temptation. I think you’ll be just fine when traveling, don’t forget your Tool box
    Sorry about the headaches, I remember them well.

    NS, maybe your puppy has magic claws & unlocked the crate, you never know Glad there was no damage.

    Wags, I would be interested in that app that alerts you to extra vaccine. I could be onsite at a moment’s notice! Our governor said that my group will be eligible next week! I’m so excited, I could cry. It will be such a relief.
    Lav, for the recipes that call for milk, I use water and (non dairy) CoffeeMate, it works great. I also make soup with salsa! My favorite salsa is Herdez. It has everything in it that I would put in there, tomatoes, onions, and yum.
    Kensho, Stanley Tucci sure does make Italy look delicious Those Italian dishes are inspiring. I can see where the thought of wine could enter the picture, after all, it flows like water over there. If you find yourself needing a reality check, you can easily search ‘drinking on vacation’ and see what it turns up. It’s unbelievable. There was one person who got so wanted he missed his flight (on his honeymoon). It’s a shame we can’t take a vacation from this addiction, but alas. In my mind, not drinking gives me a license to eat a little more of the good stuff. Give and take. Maybe reading some of those stories about vacation ‘slips’ will help? It helps me. This site is a treasure trove of great information and experiences. If you can think it, somebody has done it. I went to Ireland without any problem at all, so I can attest to the fact that it doesn’t have to spell trouble. A trip to Italy sounds incredible!
    We spring forward tomorrow, ugg.

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Friday greetings Nesters,

    Still nice out here but a little less sunny. This weekend looks to be rainy, oh well.

    Byrdie, I actually cannot use CoffeeMate. It claims to be non-dairy but there are milk solids of some sort in there that bother me. I have zero problems with the nut milks or oat milk, thank goodness
    Sadly we have been eligible for the vaccines for many weeks, just can’t get appointments but I’m still trying. I’ve been told to get online at 5 am & others have said to get online at midnight - wtf??

    Byrdie
    Byrdie - check out the website hidrb.com

    You'll have to register and answer Qs that evaluate whether you're eligible in your area, and then they'll help you connect with providers who have unused doses at the end of a day. Since the vaccines have to be stored in such specific ways, those left-over doses could go to waste otherwise. I hope it helps you get your vax! As someone who is fully vaxed I can confirm that it is SUCH a huge relief.

  13. Thanks Byrdlady thanked for this post
