    Re: Newbies Nest

    Greetings Nesters,

    Looking forward to the arrival of the fall season soon. I have had my fill of hot weather, that’s for sure.
    The weather is looking good for my Saturday craft fair so I’m happy

    Wags, your neighborhood gathering sound like it was fun. I typically like to hang out with the kids - the non-drinkers at events like that, Lol
    Did you hear the latest on soda drinkers? Having two or more/day increases the likelihood you will develop cancer - geez. I gave up soda > 20 yrs ago so when I go out anywhere it has to be tea (unsweetened) or water. We don’t seem to have a lot of choices these days.

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

    Hi, All:

    Lav, I hope that means sugar sodas? I am a fanatic of the bubbly waters of all varieties. I should probably just cut back on that anyway as I've heard it isn't great for your teeth.

    Mr. G - adventures in Italy were great. I think I talked about it here, but it was all the things - great food, amazing people, beautiful sites. Also, 104 degrees F (40C), and covered in people on summer holiday. One of the things I'm most looking forward to in retirement is the ability to travel in off seasons!

    Wags, sounds like a fun party - I feel like there is a return to more booze-focused parties in my life. I'll have to evaluate that!

    Lav, I feel you! I just have one who is struggling to launch, so the detachment has been a bit harder. I know he'll be fine, but it has been anything but smooth.

    I had a ROUGH day at work yesterday. I took a short walk after work and participated in a parent group that we're in and tried to let it go, but I still had trouble sleeping as there were some unresolved things. I will get to them today and hope to sleep better tomorrow!

    Happy SOBER Hump Day,
    Pav

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi again Nesters,

    Pav, that news story I heard about sodas - I think they were talking sugary & artificially sweetened sodas but not sure. I’ll have to look & see if I can find it online somewhere.
    One of the reasons I quit all sodas was because they said the bubbly stuff is bad for your bones…..I already have bad bones, don’t want to make them any worse
    My daughter was in & out several times before she got married & stayed out. She had a series of completely unsuitable roommates in a few apartments after college. I’m sure your young one will launch when the time is right. I hope your work day was much better today.

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

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Very interesting about the study linking soda consumption with cancer. My young sister-in-law died of cancer when she was 39, after a six-year battle. I always privately wondered if her soda consumption contributed to her developing cancer. She drank 3-4 cans of Diet Coke per day. What worried me about it was that she didnít like water, and drank Diet Coke INSTEAD of water -not in addition to it. So there was nothing coming in to help flush that Diet Coke out. I tried broaching it with her once, a few years before she got breast cancer, that I thought she should be drinking water; but she was kind of offended that I was getting into her business.
    When my other sister-in-law (HBís sister) was developing dementia, I brought it up with her too; that it would be a good idea for her to drink water, and not just regular Coke for hydration. She was offended too. Oh well. People are going to do what they do. But Iím glad the message is finally getting out that drinking a lot of soda can be detrimental to oneís health.

    Pav, that is so hard to handle the effects of a stressful job. I hope the situation resolves as well as it can today.

    Iíve been feeling flat & sad lately. Iím traveling later this morning to go visit a wonderful friend for a couple days. And sheís not a drinker! Hopefully my mood will pick up,

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good morning (or evening) nesters,
    Just a quick check in before heading to the office. The trip to the beach was great, but short and of course action-packed with a toddler. I discovered I can still swim in the ocean, and still love it. It was a good warm up before I go to Myrtle beach in Oct.

    Hi to everyone. will read back later. Definitely still sober and happy about it. I have so much more confidence! And where are you LC?

    Pouring poison down your throat is just plain STUPID!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Greetings Nesters & Happy Fall

    This has always been my happy time of year I cannot lie. Eventually I will get bored when everything turns brown outside but I just appreciate the lack of extreme heat.
    I think I’m set for Saturday, anything last minute I will take care of tomorrow.

    Slo, personally I think soda has changed so much over the years with the addition of who knows how many chemicals. We’re expecting our bodies to handle all the sugar & chemicals but maybe it’s just too much.
    Since we moved here 19 years ago I’ve appreciated our well water, no fluoride or chemical taste. But I found out a few years ago that I am allergic to chromium which occurs naturally in our water. Leave it to me to develop an allergy to something natural. We are double filtering our well water now & I haven’t had any more reactions. I even found chromium in my multivitamin, geez. I am a serial label reader these days.
    I hope you enjoy your visit with your friend & come home feeling recharged.

    Belle, nice you enjoyed your beach weekend. Did you notice any extra swells or currents from the hurricane near Bermuda?
    Staying AF has been a very good decision for all of us

    morning nesters

    Been MIA and so busy. It is like having 4 small children again with 4 dogs. The girls have really come out of their shell now and its so lovely to see. Bindi (blind one) has diabetes so i have had a quick learn to give injections twice daily, hopefully this stops the drinking and eating so much. she is eating me out of house and home for such a tiny one. The rescue group are going to advertise for permanent foster carers for them shortly, they have a lot of medical surgeries that they will need in coming months. It will be a sad day when i say goodbye but i know i have given them the best start in their new lives. Bob and Carl are pretty accepting of them, Carly has two subluxating patellas and an ear infection, he is falling to pieces at nearly fall lol. we havent been able to walk but he has had a course of 4 injections so can start back again soon.

    Lav, i love this time of year here, its staying lighter longer, warming up and just feels fresh. Lovely to have the house open and the washing on the line. The two chooks are still mean to the other chook, not sure what to do there, wish i had some Amish near me ha ha. i have been keeping them in separate cages through the day now so the dogs can go outside when they want, they are not happy but too bad, they want to come inside all the time if i leave the doors open.

    Wags, glad to see your dad has stabilised for awhile. I am not jumping at the bit to get older i must say, things are falling apart now.

    Slo, i am so sorry to hear about the dog biting you, did you find out who's dog it was. i hope you are feeling better now. When is the new bub due? I think my daughter is trying a bit harder for a baby, she bought ovulation strips the other day. My niece and her hubs are doing ok, i think they are going to try for another baby next year. All my fingers and toes are crossed for my daughter and niece.

    Well the PA at work had another meltdown, sent me a tonne of whats app messages telling me she is the only one that works blah blah, i was furious yet again. went straight to my bosses and read the messages to them. I seriously dont need anymore work and she is having next week off. I did think she would have time off straight after i came back from leave but she did wait two weeks. her boss said he recognises she has a mental health issue and i said so do i. I suffer from really bad anxiety when i am stressed so do something about her. It is so hard to terminate someone in a government job but this has been going on for a year now. I did say i would try and stop filing my nails and painting my toes all day and try and do some work from now on, sigh!. I was going to call this PA but at the end of the day, i dont care, i would tell her what i thought and would be expelling much needed oxygen on her that i could use elsewhere. My nurse who's just lovely may be having time off as her mum has cancer and it has advanced, but thats ok, we work really well together and she needs to be with her mum.

    Pups having a nap so coffee time for me (sorry NS), i dont think i could do without a cup a day. I used to have two but now only seem to want one. God i remember the days when i would drink 7-8 just to get through the day.

    A picture of Gucci and Carl for you today. I must mention how hard it is to take a photo of a blind dog who doesnt stay still and funs into things lol.

    Ava - sounds like you're doing a great job with the puppers, and you're learning some new things too! They definitely will be in better shape after their time with you.

    Lav - I hope the craft fair goes/went amazingly well!

    Pav - if your social events are starting to lean more toward booze-oriented events, that's definitely something to look at. How are you feeling after your very hard day the other day?


    Hellos and waves everyone. Hooray for another weekend!
