    Re: Newbies Nest

    I’m having such a tired day. Just no energy. That happens to me a lot on Sundays. Circadian rhythms or something. Had a busy day yesterday traveling up for Mabel’s 1st birthday party, and lots of socializing and lots of sun.

    That’s too bad that that May outdoor wedding was sort of ruined with high heat & humidity, Lav. My cousin’s outdoor wedding was a sweaty mess in that level of heat & humidity, but that was in July!

    I love split pea & ham soup, Ava. And sheets fresh off the line! I can see why grief has taken away your energy & focus, so TV & knitting will help soothe. I don’t have the energy for much more than TV-watching today, so am streaming some episodes of the latest season of ‘Call the Midwife”.

    Wags, the good thing about being AF is we don’t have to worry about being arrested if our headlights aren’t on -like if someone switched off our automatic setting at a car repair place, or if a toddler was playing with our car’s buttons, etc.
    I never thought I would cross the line into drinking & driving -but I did. And had some very near misses with getting a DUI. Lav was smarter to drink only at home!

    Belle, what a good mom to help your son so much with learning how to sew. That’s nice that you can see your friend again next week, despite the circumstances. My stepfather type guy turns 92 this year, and I don’t think he will live more than another year. His congestive heart failure is getting way worse.

    At least I had a big burst of energy on Thursday, so did a lot of cleaning at daughter & son-in-law’s house that day to get ready for Mabel’s big party. Now my brief get-up-and-go got up and went again.

    Hang in there, Wags! Just a couple few more weeks!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi Everyone. I'm here but not feeling well. Maybe diverticulitis or a hernia. Reading and feeling comforted by all your words. I'll be on the up and up soon - and alas we have struggle as well as joy, so it's my turn with the hard stuff.

    We've been talked to at traffic lights twice by police officers trying to gauge if the driver is impaired... and of course, it's me and I can say "I don't drink", and they can see I've been clear and sober. Love that!

    Take care and don't drink.

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Greetings Nesters,

    Finally a nice ‘normal spring day’ here after our mini heatwave. I felt so sorry for my chickens the past two days, you could see how heat stressed they were. It’s all good now

    Slo, that extreme heat just drags the energy out of me. Combine that with allergies & I’m pretty much useless. Can’t wait for the pollens to go somewhere else. I hope you get your energy back real soon, it’s hard feeling like that. So when can you actually move in to your condo? It must be fairly soon, yay!

    Kensho, sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. Is this something you’ve been through before & can manage on your own? Maybe a call to your doc is in order. Hope you’re feeling better real soon

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

    Re: Newbies Nest

    We’re back to rather cold out here; I had to ride my indoor bike yesterday because it’s too cold to ride outside. Sending the cold your way next, Lav.

    I have a closing date now: I close on my condo on June 8th! I finally started some packing and sorting yesterday, so got my 10 things per day to toss or donate done!

    Now I’m up here with the babies. Mabel is so cute as a one-year-old, and Beckett is exploding with all his new language! And I can enjoy the luxurious growth of thick red curls atop his head for a day or two before his parents take him in for a haircut and get them all whacked off.

    Kensho, sounds like you’re in need of some enforced rest. I wonder which one it is? Take care, and I hope it passes soon.

    Back to my duties!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Slo, congrats! That's exciting! What fun you have to look forward to. How will you decorate it? You get to make all the decisions going forward!

    Lav, have you ever heard of Quercetin? We use it in our house for mild allergies and it helps. Lots of Vitamin C too!

    I'm feeling a little better today. Rest is definitely helping. I emailed my doc yesterday saying I need to get some answers. It is so unusual for me to be down for two weeks. Something isn't right, though I feel its not life threatening. I'll get to the bottom of it!

    We had a robin build a nest in our hanging basket, but the day it was done, we had two nights of 30 degree temps. We decided to bring the basket in, and I think the robins abandoned ship. I feel badly - it's a beautiful nest!! I keep hoping they will decide to check it out, and I wish I could tell them that it's staying put now!

    My son has his second driver's test attempt Thursday. I just don't feel he completely understands the gravity of how dangerous driving can be, or how much you have to always look for what other cars are doing. He goes through life thinking it will all just work out for him (and it always has - so why would he expect differently) - I just hope he doesn't have a reality check that causes injury. I am so worried!

    Anyway, best to everyone. No drinking. Life is SO much better!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good evening Nesters,

    Cloudy & much cooler today but that made it easier to get a little work done outside. Can only stay out so long anyway until I get a head full of pollen, LOL

    Slo, thatís great your settlement date is in view. Iím very excited for you
    Enjoy the little ones because they donít stay little very long. Next thing you know theyíre taller that you!!!

    Kensho, glad youíre starting to feel better. Sometimes we just have to get in the face of our medical providers to make them really listen to what weíre saying. Women especially are often gaslighted & that makes me angry. I do take a full dose of vitamin C daily & am taking what the allergist ordered for my allergies. Nothing really helps much when the pollen levels are so high as they are this spring for some reason. Iím sure your son has listened to your advice & concerns about driving. I remember the worry too, hang in there.

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

    PS: Prayers for all the families in Texas today who lost a child in yet another mass shooting. When will this stop?

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Slo - hooray for your closing on June 8. It'll be like turning another page in your book. Can't wait to hear how you like it once you get settled in.

    Kensho - sorry you aren't feeling well and I hope you're back on top very soon. That's awesome about being able to tell the cops you're sober (and you don't drink of course!). I always feel great when I'm able to tell that to a Dr or someone who would understand what a good self-care decision it truly is.

    Lav - today's school shooting, like all of them, is horrific. And I fear it will never stop until we vote out the people being funded by the gun lobby. Every single time this happens, especially to such innocent littles, I think MAYBE this time we will have the collective will to change things. And then the spin and the politics begin and nothing changes at all.


    I have a crazy busy week of work. Well, 2.5 more crazy weeks. Then things will drop a bit and feel more manageable. I'm going to try to check in here every day but if you don't see me I'm definitely not drinking!

    Happy almost Hump Days everyone!

    Hola evabody,

    Wags, hope the next 2.5 are less crazy and more pleasurable than expected.

    Keep chugging along friends. All ok here. I have good health, friends, optimism, a plan, and a guitar. if i continue to keep it simple and just put one foot in front of the other everyday in the direction i choose, things will be ok. And they are.

    Surf's up!

    'I am part of all that I have met, yet all experience is an arch wherethro', gleams that untravelled world whose margins fade, forever and forever when I move'

    Zen soul Warrior. Freedom today-

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Greetings Nesters,

    Still feeling so sad about yesterday’s massacre, 19 innocents & 2 teachers lost their lives. These events will never stop until we get some major gun legislation & an effective way to identify & stop potential shooters before they begin. Apparently the 18 yr old shooter discussed his plan online, wish someone had called 911 before he had a chance to make his move.

    Hello Wags, I really hope these 2.5 weeks go by quickly so you can step back a bit & breathe.

    G, learning to trust ourselves helps keep us safe I think. We do have all we really need, don’t we?

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

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good morning, All:

    Sorry I've been MIA again - I got sick with COVID and just didn't pick up the computer to login. I read back once but didn't post. Anyway - feeling better now, but not perfect. I'll be taking it easy for a while. Although I am vaccinated with one booster, I was waiting for closer to summer to get the second booster. If I had it to do again I would get that booster asap as the sickness itself was worse than I expected. Get your boosters!

    I'm gutted by the shooting in Texas. It is incomprehensible and yet so much more common place. I remember exactly the day of Sandy Hook and what I was doing. Just devastating.

    I hope everyone feels better, stays warm or cool, and takes good care of themselves. Happy SOBER Thursday.

    Pav
