    Slo - Congratulations on your 3 years!!! Woohoo on such a big accomplishment! On my end, yes - I met my wife in between my two long AF times. I basically didn't drink from around 1998 or 1999 to early 2011, so really more like 12 years although I'm not certain on the start date so I always call it 10+. Then I drank until tax day in 2014 (mid-April), quit for several months (first time in the Nest here), but that quit fell apart in late 2014. I met my wife in Jan 2015 and I started my Last and Final Quit on July 24, 2016. Tomorrow makes this 5 years and I'm never going back to booze again.

    Ava - so glad to hear that your surgery went well and that the GA was much smoother this time. It must be exciting to know the worst part is over with and now you just have pearly whites to look forward to!

    Oh NS, your pup does sound pretty typical but also exasperating with such strange dietary choices! I'm glad the washcloth episode turned out ok and I hope for both your sanity and her health that your doggo learns not to eat such things.

    Happy weekends to everyone, and as NS already said, NO tix to boozeville for anyone!

    Hey, Nesters!
    I'm loving my new eye! Getting the left eye done next Wednesday. That should give me my near vision. I hope it goes as well as the first one. Lav, sandbags and laying flat sounds awful! Glad things have advanced.
    My hubs and I also sleep in separate bedrooms. He is a restless sleeper and snorer. I hated for him to go, but there comes a time when sleep is more important.
    Slo, congrats on those 3 big years! So proud of you! keep up the great work!
    My new brother is coming to visit tomorrow. Looking forward to that. I’ve been cleaning today, since I can see (well, mostly). Yikes, things can get dingy when you aren’t paying attention. Spent a good amount of time with a rag in hand and a bottle of 409.
    Wags, 5 years tomorrow. Big doings for you, too! so happy for this incredible achievement! Woot!
    Happy Friday, all. It’s only Friday, not a ticket to BoozeVille! Hugs to all, Byrdie

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Thankyou so much, everyone, for your nice words of support. My Mum passed away on July 20th. It was 11 horrible days of driving out to the hospital to see her slowly dying. (Mr (Un)Steady is simply not capable of being supportive, or even driving!!!) And of course with Covid restrictions it was appropriate for me to go alone anyway. Mum is out of pain now, her heart had been breaking for six long years without Dad. Our family (i.e. my siblings) have imploded a bit in recent days. I guess that's pretty normal for the typical dysfunctional family! Am keeping a low, peaceful profile. I am so very thankful to be sober and strong and clear-headed at this time.

    There are many posts on here that resonate with me, particularly those about partner issues, and being ''a woman of a certain age''. Many of us in this Nest seem to have common themes in our lives, and it's comforting to read how others cope and give each other advice.

    I'll be back here after I've got through the next week, including Mum's funeral service.

    Peace & strength to all, Steady
