    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good evening Nesters,

    We had a mix of sun & clouds today after a night of rain. Typical spring I guess!
    I have one grandson staying overnight & the other is on his way home. One at a time is good, haha!

    Slo, I’m glad to hear they’re looking into your knee situation. Hopefully things turn around soon. I am a big believer in PT & even talked my daughter into going into PT for her second career. She loves it much better than the business world where she started. She’s given me quite a few helpful hints. To manage chronic aches & pains.

    Pav, great that you enjoyed your time away. The closest college to us is actually the University of Delaware & I know they are having problems with the students & Covid too. Hopefully they get the message sooner rather than later.

    Ava, sorry your Mum is not feeling well. Does she have lesions anywhere else besides her arm? Shingles usually pop out on the trunk first. Maybe she has a psoriatic arthritis? That is quite painful too. I hope she gets relief soon. Glad Carl got his annual vaccines & something for his itching. My dog needs a little help with that as well. Last spring I took her on long walks most days, she lost 3 lbs & I lost nothing & ended up with very sore feet. Now we both need to lose a few lbs, haha!

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

    NS and Lav - yes, pumpkin is out go-to for doggie runs too. Between that, and the bland diet, and probably just some time for her gut to heal after so many weeks of abx, we finally seem to have rounded the bend on that and we've had a few good nights in a row.

    Nar - I hope your covid test comes back negative and that you start to feel better soon. It's sad that a few self-interested people can travel and then have such a negative impact on an entire community upon return.

    Slo - I hope you get some answers at the very least from your upcoming appts and tests, and that the PT helps bring great relief. Pain is exhausting!

    Ava - glad that you had such a nice vet visit and that Carl is less itchy. I hear your concerns about your own covid vax and I hope you're able to get good advice from those around you.


    Happy weekend everyone!

    Hey, nesters
    I got my 2nd Covid Vaccine on Thursday and Friday, I was on the couch. My immune system must have gotten insulted because it threw all it had at it. I’m still not 100% but doing much better.
    Nar, I hope you are ok. I’m so sorry you don’t feel well and wish you a speedy recovery.
    Slo, I hope your family continues on the path to wellness, too.
    Ava, G, Steady, what fun that must have been. That’s good company right there....3 Powerhouses!
    pav, I had to chuckle about your cleaning. My sister (63) still has her clothes from high school! It’s nuts! She says she kept them to show her kids how small she used to be. I said, don’t you have pictures? I can’t imagine hanging on to clothes that long. Who has the space? Yikes.
    A beautiful day here. I shoukd pry myself off this couch and go out and get some fresh air.
    Hugs to all, Byrdie

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi, All:

    Not much to say today, although I guess that's how I feel most days. Staying sober is not a day-to-day struggle anymore. I think about it now because my kids are coming into the age of "normalized" drinking, whatever that is. Wouldn't it be nice if every generation automatically got the learning from the generation before them? Although I'm sure they'd figure out how to make new mistakes - it is human nature.

    A beautiful day here, too, Byrdie, and I, too, am having trouble motivating for fresh air. I have no idea why - I love being outdoors. Just in a funk.

    Here's to pumpkin, dog walks, and sober living!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Sorry to hear you’re sick from the COVID shot, Byrdie. HB and young daughter are doing ok after theirs yesterday. Son-in-law 2 is pretty sick today though, from his yesterday.

    Young daughter turns 18 this month, and leaves for college this year; so I will be losing my non-drinking buddy. We two were going to tag along on HB’s business trip to Hawaii in November, but it got cancelled because of COVID. There went my last opportunity to travel with an AF buddy. So drinking is on my radar for that reason too @Pavati.

    At least oldest daughter has been continuously pregnant and breastfeeding for a couple years -she always has AF beer and AF wine for us to share.

    Lav, my daughter D2 left the business world to pursue a second career as an OT! -and I heartily endorsed it! HB thought she should stay in the business world, but she was disgusted with shady business practices, sick of being stuffed into and stuck in an office building all day, and sickened by watching the job insecurity of long term coworkers, never knowing when their position could be eliminated. She is much happier in her new field, and has good advice to offer too.

    Happy Day of Rest!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Greetings Nesters,

    Rain & clouds all day until just now so at least we get an hour or two of sunlight.
    My weekend visitor has retuned home so it’s back to us & the animals, haha!

    Wags, my beagle mix is prone to anal gland issues, the` worst stink on the planet. A spoonful or two of pumpkin in her dinner bowl fixes that problem, thank goodness, haha! So many uses for canned pumpkin, who knew???

    Aww, Byrdie, sorry you were not well after the vaccine. That will bE us on the 20th this month. I’ve told my husband to make no plans for that day, hope he’s listening. Get yourself some fresh air &sun

    Pav, besides me only my son-in-law is completely abstinent. I don’t know his reasoning, haven’t felt the need to ask as it’s not my business. But I do feel a little better when he’s walking around with a big glass of water so I’m not the only one. The kids all have to make their own choices, that’s for sure. I know when my son first started as an EMT many moons ago he saw enough damage & decided to not go there.

    Slo, my one & only daughter ended up being my best travel companion too. Glad we got to explore a lot of Europe together. Now she’s busy with work & my granddaughter. Do you have any friends who like to travel?

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi, All:

    My oldest son went through a "sober" phase when he was around 18 - he even suggested we get matching sobriety tattoos! I suggested he wait a bit, and sure enough that phase didn't last long. My kids smoke/vape weed more than they drink, it seems, although they seem to enjoy both. I don't see any signs of drinking like I did when I was their age, so that's a good thing.

    SLO, sorry about your missed opportunity to travel to Hawaii. I hope you get to go soon - have you been? It IS the paradise it is made out to be as long as you stay away from the extreme tourist traps. Is your daughter going off to college? She had a hell of a senior year! Poor thing.

    I'm off to work after some days off. I just don't like that early alarm!!

    Happy SOBER Monday,
    Pav

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good afternoon, nesters.
    Lav, my tummy still isn’t quite right and I have no energy, but considerably better than the day after. My hubs had no issue at all, you just never know. Better each day, thank goodness.
    Going to get lab work tomorrow morning, my first doctors appointment in well over a year. It’ll be weird! Hopefully, everything is still working properly. I’ll go back next week for the actual physical. I’ll also be calling to get a hair appointment, man oh man, my poor hairdresser! I’ve got a mess! My hair is about 5 different colors and my bangs, how can such a simple concept completely elude me? I’ll be glad to get myself in the shop for maintenance.
    It’s a beautiful spring day here! Hope everyone has a great day. Byrdie
