  1. The "How Do You Feel Right Now?" Topic (5)

    I'm sad your friends are so clueless about how different it is when you can't just drop everything and go travel! That's a huge gap in understanding, there, Brian. Since they don't seem to know at all what to make of your situation and your being okay with a simple life...maybe they just can't express support, the concept is so foreign to them! big hugs, my friend.

    Happy Birthday, @sober4life I'm so glad you feel real hope! May the year ahead bring you lots of love and joy and hope!

    You don't deserve any of it!!! Life is so random. I know that I and others value your input here. So maybe, that's one damn thing. Us here. We like you.
  4. w00t! That is a big deal! I always resent having to clean for somebody else! Good for you!
  5. An accomplishing sort of day: I sorted through a lot of piles of paper into trash/recycle/deal with--mostly moved to do so because my son needs some paperwork done on his behalf. I also went to exercise class (3rd time this week!) (I'll miss it tomorrow, though). I am doing my laundry and before that, I had dinner and before that, I helped my son with some other stuff. I It feels good to see an end to the piles of paper.

    Me too. I took a hard line to myself today, because the last couple of weeks I've binged. If it keeps you sober, that's the most important thing.

    Do you have a mentor or administrative support, or are you all alone in this? Having back-up and policies that are crystal clear and followed by everyone who works there are so important in things like this. In any event, I hope things went smoothly...and the world has not ended! (It hasn't)
  8. What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Zanzibar by Bill's a story song, really funny...Bill's story about being unable to focus to get a report on Zanzibar turned into his 6th grade teacher. And it's seriously funny and touching...
  9. What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    a playlist on my old iPod called "fell in love and lost my mind." The current song is, Ella Fitzgerald, accompanied by Joe Pass, "The One I Love Belongs to Somebody Else." Their rendition is pure jaunty joy!
  10. How Is Your Weather Today? (16)

    High barometric pressure. Sunny. High in the low 50s/10s ;)

    Thanks, @Rozzie86I'm enjoying it immensely. I wish I could take all my friends to a ballgame. I know I'd be the annoying person pointing out players and plays and quoting the occasional statistic I've transitioned from having "a lot of fun" to "enjoying it immensely." hmmm. I think the turnaround for me, besides baseball, is that little by little, I'm doing stuff for me in the present: I went to Poetry Workshop on Tuesday, despite a ragged day. I got some stuff taken care of, like getting a headlight on my car fixed. And reading a dreaded missive from Social Security for my son. We have a big form to fill out. My brain feels lighter now. Hoping everyone has better days

    Thanks for telling me! Kendall (with Lee Judge's writing, too) is instructive and informative without treating baseball as a vehicle for tender sentiment. Seriously good book, "Throwback." Hoping you get to eat and rest soon and that something will spark you and keep boredom away!
  13. The "How Do You Feel Right Now?" Topic (5)

    Yes, baseball!!! May our teams win and win... I've been reading a book about baseball, from a player's perspective. It's written by Jason Kendall, the player (a catcher) and Lee Judge (the Kansas City journalist who got to interview him). It's called Throwback. And it just gets to the heart, the fine details--why a guy throws this in this count, how subtle the "signs" are, why sometimes players don't like to autograph balls, etc... Anyway, it's a lot of fun. Wow! I actually said something was "a lot of fun." I must be feeling better. Thanks, Brian!

  15. What's On Your Mind Right Now? (2)

    I took a shower, but I didn't wash my hair. Every time I have something planned just for me, my husband or son, out of the blue demand my time and attention. That was the way it was yesterday and I just suck at being interrupted.
