    Gads, I don't know where all these old people get their energy! Same ones who played golf danced the night away. Now they are probably better at napping than moi. More and more people got up to do karaoke as the night went on (due to drink, I'm sure) but you know they were having fun, everyone lives within 1 mile on streets with a 25 mph speed limit. We had a couple glasses of wine, our dinner and then later in evening because it was fun to watch people you would never suspect would get up and sing - we sipped a Baileys on the rocks. That's about a 2X/year occurrence. Feel fine today. Just came in from a 10 mile bike ride.

    Lila - laughter is the best medicine! A lanai is a screened in porch or deck. Did you ever watch Golden Girls? I loved that show because it was based in Miami, FL. They often talked of having lunch or tea or drinks "on the lanai" - pronounced la nye.

    How's everyone doing? It's Labor Day Weekend here in the States, Monday is a holiday. And, of course, our community has a Sunday & Monday special - $30 for a round of golf that includes either a hot dog or hamburger lunch and a draft beer. I'm putting it out there to you all and already told dh I plan to be stricter this week so I'll ask for a Diet Coke instead. If it's extra, will take the beer and give to DH and enjoy my coke - how's that for a plan!

    Hi all,
    Everyone seems upbeat so I guess it's my turn to feel really rotten. i still didnt moderate as I should have for the rest of the week. I still drank my four glasses on saturday and ended up drinking five glasses last night. That's alot of alcohol I drank on the weekend.

    But it's monday so it stops.

    Enough of sitting on the pity pot and time to get back into my healthy regime today.

    TMH- Sounds lovely where you are living. I love the smell of fresh flowers. I have some lilies on my bathroom and the frangrance is gorgeous.

    I'm sorry you're still so sad, Rebirth. As you said it's Monday and time to get on with your healthy program. You know you can do it, and you do care. You are special and deserve to be the best you can be and you will get the best in return someday, I know you will.

    Proud to say I did it. After golf went in for lunch, bartender asked us what kind of beer we wanted and I asked may I have a Diet Coke instead? Sure! Other couple had beers out playing golf and they and dh had one at lunch & I loved the fact that I wasn't tempted in the least. No, well, it IS a holiday or it IS part of the special. So much mind over matter, isn't it? Besides the golf went for about a 2 mile walk and then did a couple laps in pool. Since we had such a late lunch going to have one of our favorite dinners - Popcorn!

    Goodnight!

    OMG - FUN. popcorn for dinner! i'm gonna try that sometime.

    rebirth-time to get back in the groove. it's tougher when you get further out of it, so reel yourself back in before that happens. that's my experience anyway

    i had 3 drinks friday, again on saturday and again on sunday! boo. my "plan" is only one night in the weekend when i get to have 3. on the other 2 nights, it's supposed to be 2.

    so, i went over my planned limit. not by much, and certainly not overindulging, but still. it was my first test with having company, and i did ok i guess. not happy about going over the limit, but i was happy about going AF one night while they were here.

    they left today, and my hubby tried to talk me into a beer with him tonight, but I stood firm. it's monday, so I'm AF, even if it IS a holiday.
    so, i'm not too down about it. i mean, i had 10 drinks last week, compared to probably 20 drinks a week this summer.
    i do i hope that i can do better this weekend.

    Hi Modders
    Summer is officially over. Tomorrow me and the kids have school. Of course I am a little sad. I did a lot of yard work, planted some hydrangeas.
    My computer isn't getting Internet, so I am pecking away at my iPad. Not as easy!
    TMH, I know you know what I am dreading! Horrible winter! I do just love hearing about your life. Maybe someday I will have that kind of life. Right now, loving my home, actually. One thing at a time! I never saw golden girls, but used to be really into desperate housewives! They drank a lot, come to think of it!
    Rebirth, keep checking in. To me, breakups are really big deals and difficult. To me, it seems like people get someone new so soon and that amazes me. Time will be good medicine, I think.
    Lgl, when 4me gets back are you up for thirty days? Yikes, such a long time!
    Going to bed now, goodnight all!

    Hi,
    It was good to read up on everyone's posts. I didnt drink yesterday and I feel mentally alot better this morning.

    Alcohol is a definite depressant!

    Lila- Funny you should mention about people who get someone new soon after a break up. An old flame found out about my break up and has made contact with me. He has asked me out for a date today! I told him that it was way to early for me to date because all I would do is talk about my ex and cry alot. lol. Not a good date.

    RB - good idea about not dating. it's a good idea to take some time for yourself.

    i'm not going to commit to a 30 day challenge right now. frankly, i just don't want to do it!
    maybe someday, but right now, i'm good with skipping 4 days a week and enjoying my weekends in moderation(of course).

    i will try this weekend to keep it under 3 at least one night.
