    week beginning 31 Jan

    Hi folks thought I would start the thread and the PJ Party. I'm all dressed for the part and have already had a wee boogie. Decafe coffee and some Danish chocolate for sinful measure. Ok I confess, ice-cream too.
    Hope to see the rest of the gang here for New Year's!

    MAE ALL...

    TT...thanks for starting the thread. I know you're ahead of us but a whole month! LOL Welcome to 2018 and I hope it's a great year for you. See you at the party.

    Sam...I thought of your wife when you said you'd lost your voice. LOL Hope you're on the mending side of things.

    Pauly...I think I just won't bother getting out of my PJ's today. Woke to -22F and it's not supposed to get much warmer during the day.

    Lav...I only remember 1 year when we had a snowfall like Erie and once was enough for me. Usually it's too cold for a lot of snow but the last 2 days proved that theory wrong.

    Off to put the coffee on will be back in a bit....PPQP

    hiya everyone ....last of the old as we shut the door
    2017 its almost no more,
    For some twas good ,for others bad,
    some parts joyous others sad.

    Now as we look forward to things unseen ,
    As we march on into 2018,
    Dont fret with worry panic or strife,
    Enjoy each day as the start of new life

    Each and every day you wake,
    with every sober breath you take
    thank those around you who've supported you well.
    and helped you to beat your living hell.

    so dear friends and supporters without further ado ..
    to everyone here,I truly thank you
    God bless you all and those you hold dear
    I wish you all a joyous new year...


    I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.


    YOU KNOW YOU ARE LIVING IN 2018 when...


    1. You accidentally enter your PIN on the microwave.


    2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.


    3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.


    4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.


    5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.


    6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.


    7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen


    8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't even have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.



    10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.




    11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )




    12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.






    13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.



    14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.




    15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.



    ~~~~~~~~~~~AND FINALLY~~~~~~~~~~~~


    NOW U R LAUGHING at yourself.
    af since the fourth of July 2012...howzat then America..now proudly marching into year 5..done that one..now bimbling into year 6..tick ..done that one too..as he casually strolls into numero 7


    CHILDHOOD IS LIKE BEING DRUNK.EVERYONE REMEMBERS WHAT YOU DID,EXCEPT YOU.

    Oh dear sorry I had the month wrong! Don't trust me to organise parties now that I am sober! It's definitely New Year's Day here.
    I watched an episode of Alias Grace on Netflix last night. It was good if not a tad sad.
    Expecting 22 degrees Celsius today and that's not minus.

    TT...no worries, keeps us on our toes. Saw the fireworks on the news this morning, did you partake? I'll have to google Alias Grace. 22! Do you by any chance have a guest bedroom?

    Minus 22 degrees! I would not survive

    I posted, promptly go the flu and disappeared . This has been the total muscle weakness flu and the entire family has been in bed for days.

    I think what I realized from the test more than anything, is that 1 or 2 drinks do actually reawaken the monster. Chemical reactions in our brain can be out of our control, thus leading us to do things we logically know are not good for us. Thankfully, for me the FEAR of a hangover or anxiety overrides those chemical reactions. It is not like I logically thought, "i'm cured"....it came all on it own and was taking on a life of it own--with little regard to my logical thinking.

    I have eaten very little the last 4 days and plan to bunker down tongight and try to get some food in me.

    So glad to see the gang is all here!

    Aw SF...yup I'm hearing that the flu hits just that quick! You bunker down and you can never get too much chicken soup! I totally agree that chemical reactions in our brain can get out of control and take on a life of their own. Living with someone who's Bipolar and refusing to accept it made me a believer. Like you said, even 1 drink can reawaken the monster. Feel better soon....:smle:PPQP
