      Re: w/c 6th ?

      Greetings friends,

      Mick, your building are really awesome
      Have you thought about listing some on ebay & get a bidding war going? You could probably have a nice side business!!
      My grandsons are 2 years, 5 month apart in age. The younger guy has not developed any verbal coping skills so he will react to anyone in any situation by yelling, screaming, kicking, punching, throwing things. In other words he's a damn terrorist. The older guy is very brainy & prefers not to be bothered but he does defend himself when the situation warrants, ha ha! The younger one has been seeing a therapist but I see zero improvement. Someday he's going to piss off the wrong kid & end up getting his clock cleaned, if you know what I mean.
      You're right about my position in the hospital, ha ha! I was the Big Cheese on a 23 bed inpatient unit, the charge nurse, the unit manager. I had to make sure the patients got what they needed, make sure their care & privacy needs were met. I had to keep an eye out on the nurses & orderlies, make sure all the i's were dotted & the T's were crossed on all the medical records. AND I had t o make sure the docs were doing their jobs too, haha! That's why I had no time for BS!!!!!

      Det, glad to see you back but I was worried.
      Whatever it is that draws you back to drinking can be managed. I am rereading a great book that I wish you would read too. It's called "Resilient: How To Grow An Unshakable Core Of Calm, Strength And Happiness" by Rick Hanson Ph.D.
      I just mentioned this book in the Newbies Nest because I see several people there who would really benefit from this book. I think you would too

      Pauly, I hope your grandsons learn healthier ways to get along, ha ha!
      Our younger one is so disruptive & lashes out at virtually anyone (including a teacher & the school principal I hear).

      SK, great to see you back online!
      I understand the therapist's reasoning for wanting to see you perform self care functions but I also understand your resistance to showing him. Just show him you are moving about safely & use your verbal skills to your advantage

      Pie, did you get the sale???? We wanna know!!

      PQ, I'm really hoping the snow on Saturday & now some on Sunday doesn't pile up too much. I know it's winter & we are used to getting snow but it doesn't make any easier as you well know. I don't mind driving in it but I worry about the other idiots n the road. You know the drill.
      I made a vegan noodle soup today that just called for a turkey sandwich, haha!!!

      Hello to our friends Cyn & Sam!

      Have a nice night everyone!

      MAE ALL...

      Det... Was hoping this wasn't the reason for not posting but deep down figured it was. You're going to have to take a close look at what you did/didn't do when you bent that elbow. That's where you need to work on your plan. You'll get there, I know you will. You take care of yourself and hurry back.

      Mick...it's hard but you're right to let Julie deal with it. She'll ask for help when she needs to. I love the silhouette in the window. You have multi talents. I too grew up with Agatha Christie but no I was actually watching one of the oldie Angela Landsbury Murder She Wrote TV show. It comes on one of my Golden Oldie channels and I tape them all. Only show that I will watch repeats. LOL Wow...I hope the charity picked up on the fact that the donation was worth that much. Hope you can solve diggers issues. LOL

      Pauly...if you make a plan to see Mick's completed railway I'll join you! A "real" bread stick. LOL It's frozen lasagna and salad (on the side Mick) for me tonight.

      SK...I can sure understand not wanting people in your house but I don't think you'd like the alternative. Don't you dare become a recluse.

      Pi...I'll be googling spaghetti in the crock pot as well. LOL I hope you got the promised paperwork today. Just another day in paradise. LOL or is it "Living the dream"

      Lav...I'm sure you're posting as I'm typing. I'll check out your day later.

      Have a nice night all....PPQP

      Hey ABerooos, bouncing back here quick as I can.

      Yeah, I'm totally baffled how i continue to relapse in the face of victory...so many report it gets easier as time goes by and for me there is NO desire to drink even
      months afterwords but then 'bam' i find myself doing it like I'm watching from a 2nd persons perspective. it's truly out-of-body and creepy as hell. I'm looking into if there's some mechanistic explanation from neurology for this. thankfully you guys know I love to research...

      SK, so glad you're pain is manageable xxxxx

      Lav, I super appreciate the book and have it up on amazon now. i've started to look at this journey for me in a more of a 'search for enlightenment' perspective as weird as that may sound. I've been reading and learning so much on self-actualization and could go on for hours I'm sure. i miss our chatroom!

      Pauly, did you actually cook the pasta noodles all day? comon hon.... say no

      thanks to PPQ, Tree, Mick the adventurer and any I've missed

      well, more study then a lifering.org chat which is always great. we could use more company though hint hint.

      gnight loves

      hiya Lav...how are you?ok I hope ..so youve got chalk and cheese grand kids?hopefully they will grow out of it..Yep somehow I knew you werent just the floorsweeper upper ..how you can translate a stentorian tone into written word ,I know not but you can.!Yes wehave the Amazon bug here too...jeez ...I got informed by Julie at 5.35 this morning ,a package we had ordered had left the Leicester depot and was on the way tothe Barden Mill hub..we go through this rigmarole every time!especially when she gets the text you are 10 stops away ...we then get a run down on where he is ,progression ..its almost a disappointment when the parcel arrives!hope you have a good weekend ..

      right peeps its a goodbye from me ...

      Hi everyone. Going for haircut in an hour.

      Many of us had those relapses after being sober a while. Angel on one shoulder; woolf on the other, do some mantras. stick with one and repeat it vigorously from your mind.

      Mick, glad you getting along with the trains. I would love to see that closer, along with the precious relics. I might have to go to Ashton this summer to see remaining cousins. There's also a flight on Quantas running right now and that is 599 economy. Just think all those hours squashed. The upper economy, business class and first are better will have a think on it. My cousin is in Adelaide.

      Pauly, you sound good.

      Lav, I'm glad g/son's in therapy, he has so much anger.

      MAE ALL...

      Lav...maybe a change in therapist is in order? My boys are 2 years in age difference and the only thing I had to put my foot down on was "No you can't tell him blue is green, yellow is red, purple is pink!" LOL The fighting didn't start till they were in their twenty's and moved into a condo together. Glad I wasn't living in the city at that time. I made a vegan noodle soup today that just called for a turkey sandwich that gave me a good chuckle. I'll be checking out the book you recommended to Det too.

      Det...I'm looking into if there's some mechanistic explanation from neurology for this. Please pass on anything that you find out. I find this very interesting. I'm glad you can bounce back, you're sounding pretty good.

      Mick...good news about Julie dealing with her boss. She's got enough stress to deal with. I'll also be checking out Annie Grace, think I got my weekend planned now. LOL Did you get the boarding in place? See what you get for adding a second gate! A garden member came in to renew her plot today and she was telling me she's been watching Matlock on you tube. I'll be checking that out this weekend as well. No cards today but it was nice and quiet. Got all the little odds and sods that I've been putting off done.

      Sam...good luck with the grant!

      Pauly...I have no idea what I'm having for supper either. Stopped at the store, walked up and down the aisles and then left without buying anything. Think I'll make the boys decide tonight. I'm looking forward to Mick's video as well.

      SK...how did the haircut go? Hope you made it there and back with no issues.

      Pi...I hope you got the email!

      Well this was a long week back and glad it's over. Looking forward to the weekend. Hope you all have a good night....PPQP

      Re: w/c 6th ?

      Good evening friends,

      Well I was just snagged to watch the boys all day tomorrow since both of their parents will be out of town. They are to be dropped off at 7:45 for what will likely be a very long day, haha!
      I need to get a plan to keep those boys apart from one another & lessen the likelihood of a potential disaster. Maybe one inside & one outside but I'll have to switch them often because the wind chills are below freezing, LOL
      Also just made plans to be a daughter's house by 9 am Sunday to help them out with a remodeling project.

      Mick, my younger grandson is very food-centric so I'm considering withholding his rations if he starts up. What do you think????
      He's also becoming a real smartass & I don't want to be tempted to reinjure my previously broken foot if you know what I mean. Do you think I would get locked up or anything? Ha ha.

      Det, I'm glad you're getting that book. It's laid out simply with instructions, explanations & exercises to help reshape your brain & hence your thinking. This quitting & staying quit thing is dependent on your positive thinking. You are the only one in charge of your thinking, you can do this

      PQ, I beat you by 19 minutes last night
      Hope you have a good weekend. I just used an Amazon gift card to buy myself a second pot for the Instant Pot. Good to have an extra if you have a lot of projects going on.

      Sam, don't build a wall.

      Pauly, I don't mind attitudes so much, we're just human. It's the anger & the looks of hatred that I see from that little kid hat bother me. Really, what does he have to be angry about??? He has a good life & he is treated as an equal, at least when he's here. He's never seen me really pissed off but he's getting close, LOL

      SK, you need to do a whole lot of healing so you can travel comfortably this summer. Keep that in mind & watch your step, OK?
      I love to travel, I always learn so much.

      Hello to Cyn & Pie!

      Have a nice night everyone!
