    Lav being around booze doesn't tempt me in the least either. I have been out to bars with him and have had parties at my house with tons of booze around. It repulses me if anything. I can't even stand the smell. I feel like a huge hypocrite complaining about him when I was doing the exact same thing a couple years ago.

    I have finally learned that other people won't do something just because we've asked them nicely.
    My husband's snoring was so obscene years ago I got him to go for a sleep study. He was borderline sleep apnea but was told to lose some weight & his snoring would stop.
    I encouraged him to lose the weight, tried to help in every & any way I could. He never lost weight & just picked up & moved out instead. Yeah, there's more than one way to do things
    We just can't change someone else's behavior - they have to do that themselves.

    We are off to Alaska in the early a.m. I will wave to everyone as we fly over you from Buffalo to Anchorage, stopping in Chicago.

    Have fun Sun! Check in when you can!

    Lav - You're so right about not being able to change people. I don't even bother anymore. I have enough to worry about just keeping myself in check. LOL
    Give Stella a huge kiss and a snuggle for me!

    Can't believe it's the middle of August already - geez!

    How's the new pup K9?

    I figure I spent the first half of my life trying to get certain other people to 'do the right thing'. Now I just worry about myself & keep a safe distance ~ much nicer here :H

    Importance of Gratitude

    This one is for you, Lav .

    The Sunflower mentioned this woman in a post and I've now watched about 5 of her talks. I found this one very interesting, relevant, and meaningful: TEDxKC - Brené Brown - The Price of Invulnerability - YouTube.

    Have a good weekend, everyone! :h NS

    Hi, Lav and Byrdie - I'm glad you liked the video. Free at Last and I have managed to become quickly obsessed with her and her message and would like to figure out how to become her BFFs :H - and maybe see her in person!

    I am totally guilty of squashing joy by anticipating potential loss. I've always known that but somehow she has illuminated the whole thing and made it clear why and how to change.

    Hope you're having a lovely day! :h NS
