Good Morning Coffee Lovers !

Its a Tuesday morning and all is well slept like a rock i have already had 1 cup of Joe and my eyes are open now how is everyone i hope well (note to OMike) yes i leave very early big Mike as you know we are in a heavy heat wave and 6-12 is our best productive times after 12 it slows to a crawl, Well its just Kevin & I and that is fine as we are wrapping up final details on the construction of this Steel Bldg, things are quiet and calm at
the site we got the roll up door yesterday all 700 pounds of to go 12 feet in the air so we will rent a gene lift to support it anyway enough of that.

Well today i go to a second sub doctor as to be able to see a therapist this is the protocol this clinic does to see this guy i really hope it works out and he is worth it i am running out of options as the next step is to drive 70 miles round trip to get to one who knows something about addiction and sub it would be fine if they were not up on sub but i just want to be safe and work the counseling down to a (T) well all i believe i
will get me another cup and wait for others to arrive.

Thanks for having me Mike take care all and have a great day in recovery.

Tony

Good Morning Everyone

Hope today is a great day, did you know that smiles are contagious? So smile at someone today and see what I mean.

I was outside yesterday and am having real problems with barn swallow birds, I step out of the house and get as far to my car and about 20 come out of the barn and start diving at me this has been happening for about 2 weeks now and it is just me, I don't know what they are attracted to unless its the color of my hair and they want it for their nest LOL. If I walk out with someone or if their is people outside they fly around but if it is just me they try to attack, it is scary. Danny said that all of the nest in the barn has babies in them but he is out in the barn more than I am so I am stumped.

Danny was out yesterday fixing my daughters brake lines in her car and I was out pulling weeds in my flower garden and my daughters boyfriend came out and quietly told me to take the dog in the house so I got him in the house and I cam back out and I asked him why and he said that there was a skunk between my car and his so we stood there and watched the little guy finally he went into the field but if the dog would have seen him I think we would have been taking baths in tomato juice.

It is fun living out in the country as long as you don't run into skunks or you can outrun the birds. Today I just want to have a good day and smile.

Hey Tony, best of luck with the new Sub doctor and guess what, I go to a new one today as well. In fact, I forgot about it until I read your Good Morning Post! LOL

Tony my friend you guys are moving right along on that building! Good for you!

Hey it sounds like you may be on the right track with a sub program which requires therapy and has someone built into it to work with. Just remember, you are there to learn from them, so like with all of it, take what you need and leave the rest.

Tommy, I hope that jackhammer in your head eases up and coffee will be on here whenever your ready for it. Do something good for yourself today Tommy.

Come on everyone, git up, git'er going and have a GREAT day!

Mike

Good Morning Helen!

Oh man, Helen, see those birds are attracted to your motherly ways and caring heart. They will feel safer with your strands of hair in their nests, with their young! Maybe you should put on a hat and see what happens! LOL

Oh no a Skunk, boy it's good that he saw it before the dog did or you might have had one stinky dog to clean up! Whew, when I was in scouts one night we took one of the younger kids, tied him up in a sleeping bag, hung him from a tree poured honey and laid food out under him, as he was about a foot off the ground. He got sprayed good! LOL

I envy you Helen living in the country, so much more peaceful.

Mike

Good Morning Folks,

The way MY morning is starting, I might need to mainline OMike's coffee to get my bad-self going. Sorry. Inappropriate drug humor, I know.

Second apology: This is about to get disgusting.

I mentioned last week that I went to my primary doc to have her look at this peculiar growth on my back. No big deal, so I hoped. Well, it wasn't a big deal. It was, though, a freakin boil! Jes-us! I've never had a boil before, but now I can tell all 'y'all: They hurt like hell...and they're damned disgusting! Ha!

So this morning I'm due back in the doc's office to have her lance the yucky thing. So, to quote one brilliant mind: "And that's all I have to say about that"---F. Gump.

Google "boil" if you, like, really want to be grossed out.

Oh man.

Truth is, I'm very thankful it's JUST a boil...and not, well---you know, something else.

Tomorrow morning is my (double) knee surgery. That doc is going to clean out a bunch of debris and repair both torn meniscus.

Now, heads-up, folks.

I came home yesterday, from my "pre op" conference with him, with 50 Lortab, 10/500. Yep, 50 of 'em. First time in a long, long, long-ass time I've had any dope in the house. And now? Now Mrs. Sam is guarding that stuff like it's...like it's a safe zone in Iraq...or something.

As I was saying to OMike the other day, I asked myself: Do I actually believe I CAN'T handle having those drugs in the house? My answer: Yep, that's EXACTLY what I'm saying! Ha!!

Nah, (very) seriously, I actually think I COULD handle those pills without supervision. Yeah, I believe I could...but I don't need to. So why, I've concluded, do I even need to "test" myself? IF those pills are really not that big of a deal, why MAKE them a big deal...by testing myself? So, no, I WON'T give them any more power than they might otherwise have over me. Right now, they're on Mrs. Sam's side of the medicine cabinet...and that's where they'll stay until a few hours post-op, come tomorrow.

Of course, if I turned out the bathroom light, walked reallll quietly, on my tippy-toes and just removed a couple... Ha! Just more dumb-ass (inappropriate) drug humor!

Oh, for the record (I think I've also mentioned this previously): I believe that, for me, certainly, it was vital that I TELL everyone in my life about this knee operation. Specifically about the pills. "Building fences," it's called. So I've told Mrs. Sam, Sam Jr (my son) as well as all my friends 'n neighbors in my morning Breakfast Club Meeting.

OK, MY coffee is ready...and I'm a'pourin' it!

best,

sam

LOL ........... sorry to chuckle Sam!

Sam, the boil is nasty, but, your blessed, as you know, that it is only a boil.

Your knee operations are also a blessing, as after therapy your going to feel great.

Ah but the pain pills, those little dots of wonder and magic! Let Mrs. Sam control them and each time you have to take one celebrate your control over it. Celebrate the fact that you can now be normal, treat the ailment and then move on enjoying a healthy and happy life in recovery!

Sam, you will be in my thoughts and prayers tomorrow. Please check in as soon as you feel up to it. You have inspired and helped so many, we are here for you!

Mike

hahaha oh man, I have to share this, this is priceless.

I just searched "lace a boil pictures"................

on the first page of pictures was a picture of Obama and one of Hillary!

LOLOLOLOL oh God, I just peed myself. hahahahahaha

priceless, truly priceless!

Good Hump Day Morning Addiction Surviving Gang!

The coffee is ready, the donuts are "over there" and Yang, if you make it in this morning there is low fat milk and fruit for you!

Folks, I got up early with the dog, but, I just couldn't hang and I hit the recliner. Rain has that effect on me!

Well I visited my new Sub doctor yesterday and I kinda like her. I think she is going to be OK. I mean she gets it, this recovery stuff. She also chatted with me about my health in general, we talked a lot about Sub, Sub doctors and what can be done to help people have good experiences.

I was also very pleased with her staff. The nurse was a pleasure and very kind.

So we have found another good doctor here locally to send people to.

Well BRB, as I have to tend to the dog, visit the BIG boys room and phone my lovely wife.

Everything is ready come on in and get comfy!

Mike

Good morning Tang!

LOL .................. yes, yes, the breakfast club will cater to your um, handicap! hehe

Hey, about your feet , please see if your Sub doctor will switch you ti Tex, instead of Suboxone! That may help and certainly cannot hurt. I don't know the relation Suboxone has to swelling or to the extent and I feel it varies from person to person, but, I feel there is some connection. Of course many never have a problem with this. Also your added weight is not helping and can also be playing a role in it.

Elevation when relaxing, lots of walking and tight stockings up to the knee when at home will help. Please don't assume the worse, as it is most likely something you can treat medically and in time correct.

Hey Tang, have a good day today and do something special for yourself!

Mike

Omike......do you think that after all these years (almost 2) that just NOW I am having a re-action to Suboxone? I am on such a little dose! I take slivers....

I'm thinking it may be more related to the surgery 3 weeks ago! But, I'm not sure how! Having my bladder in a hammock maybe could pinch something off and cause my kidneys to process differently! don't bad kidneys have an adema side effect? Or heart problems? For this to be just weight is alittle wierd! I mean swelling from being on my feet too long is one thing! This is like you can push your finger on my cankles and the mark doesn't bounce back! And whats the burning about?
GEEZE>>>>>I gotta just call the Dr.
I hate health problems!
Thanks for ah....my......needing special attention at this coffee meeting! wink I appreciate you sparing no expense to help my movement! wink lol

Tang, I'm sorry I offered that without stopping to think about the size of your Sub dose and time on.

I do understand how you feel though, as I experience the same thing. Cankles lol, sorry I still like that term.

The burning may be from the skin stretching out and braking down. I'm not familiar with the surgery or how that could effect this, but, you seem to understand it better, please check with the doctor right away. Just please don't get yourself stressed about it being something bad and when I say that, I mean organ function from disease.

Also you know we can develop deep vein issues which cannot be detected from the visual inspection, that is how mine began. Nevertheless, please try the suggestions I shared on helping to control it, they have helped me.

Oh and a BIG ........... WAY TO GO, on the 90 days without tobacco! That is so great. I want to stop myself, but, honestly, I enjoy smoking my cigars and I just don't think I can stop the cigs and not the cigars. lol

Mike

OhioMike Senior MemberTommy, I hope that jackhammer in your head eases up and coffee will be on here whenever your ready for it. Do something good for yourself today Tommy. Come on everyone, git up, git'er going and have a GREAT day!Mike__________________My Story..... http://www.naabt.org/mike/ Good mmornig everyone,,I didnt resond yedterday cause i was too sick, ,,but dont feel sorry for me czuse i brought it on myself. (xanax),,in a way it made me feel lke when i first started sub,,,,big difference being i could get high on th xanax,,and up until this point have never taken them correctly,,,so at one point i would run out and most of us have been there, I just type this as a reminder in case your MD, pschch,,or whatever thinks it mat be a good drug for you, Maybe in some extreme cases it is,,but in my case ive managed all my life to deal with deprresion ,,angiety attacks and all that w/o having to take a xanax. At least with sub i dont get high and and i keep my old behavior in check,,,but cant quite accomplish this on z's. Im in a really bad place because of these. Yesterday the family came down with their boat ,,the lake,,bbq and all that. But i had an excuse for not going,,i had some work to do and it needs to be done(ood jobs to pay for braces),,turns out thasy didnt happen,,but even if it did i was too freakin sick(wd's from xanax) to even be with my family, Sound familar to anyone? Well,,,it will be over soon,,I just picked up what i thiunk wiill be my last refill. He only writes for one week cause he knows i have abused them in the past so he give me 14 pills a week. So this is do or die for me. One good thing is my tolerence is up there so high that i could take all 14 and not get a buzz, but it still gives me the feeling of no stress and life is so much easier! Anyway,,today i took the gegular dose,,2mgs a day,,and starting tommarrow im going to 1mg a day then the remainder im cutting in half just to keep the wd's away. Then when they're gone,,im done and im just gonna have to be sick for awhile. Couldnt have come at a worse time,,we bought a home and have all the moving and stuff. But i liked what you wrote Mike,,its all about what im "doing" today and the thoughts of a futue.anyway,thanks,Tattoo Tommy

Just an update! I have a Drs. Appointment at 2;30 today! Everyone is just concerned so I said okay! I'll go! Funny thing is and this alwasy happens......I look down to see what they look like and this afternoon they don't look as bad! This is like a car! You bring it to the shop and whatever was wrong doesn't do it again!
But....I'm going anyway! Not being able to sleep last night tipped the scale to the Dr. side! No pun intended! ha

Hey Folks,

Good morning...afternoon, actually.

First: Ang, it's good (and right) that you're taking yourself to the doctor. No matter what it is (and it's probably nothing-much to worry about), it's ALWAYS best to know what is/is not on our respective plates.

So, go---then come home with a clean, uh...plate!

OK: That's about it for me, for now. Still a little goofy from my surgery this morning...and still, I'm sure, have plenty of drugs coursing through my ol system. I've been home for about 4 hours.

Mrs. Sam handed me my first (and, so far, only) pain meds about 2 hours ago...exactly the dose prescribed by my surgeon. Folks, I gotta say, even now, after such a (relatively) long time sans dope, it's past-bizarro to actually take those pills "as prescribed." Yet, this is exactly what I'm doing! Well, what I've DONE, since I've taken just that one dose.

It goes like this, 1 pill every 4 hours...or, hmmm, maybe he actually meant 4 pills every 1 hour? Ha! OK, OK: More inappropriate drug humor!

Thanks (again) for all your concern, and support. While such back-up is often hard to find, I know that I can always find it here.

Later, friends 'n neighbors.

Hey Tang, thinking about you! Please let us know what the doctors says about your cankles!

Sam, Hmmm ............. I always enjoyed the "or as needed" declaration on my prescriptions! hahaha

Glad your home and resting Sam, tell us, are the doctors pleased with the results?

Tommy, I know it's hard to get going feeling like that, but try to get up and get out some each day.

Mike

Hey OMike,

"Are the doctors pleased with the results?" you ask. Too early to tell, for certain, that is. The actual operation went quite well, so said the surgeon, though he did find "quite a lot of arthritis" in both knees.

Damn! So NOT a good thing. However, he repaired both meniscus tears, and "cleaned out" a buncha other stuff. Blah blah blah.

I'll know more next Monday, when I report back to him for my first post-op check up. Big thanks for asking.

By the way, the dealeo with the boil (lancing that way-bad-disgusting-thing!) was freakin' WORSE than this morning's operation. Of course, I wasn't unconscious yesterday...as I was this morning. But, damn! That "lancing and packing (etc)" really 'n truly hurt like hell!

Ha! What a wuss ol Sam is!

OK...back to my couch and my ice packs.

later,

sam b

Hey tony, since you were MIA this morning and not offering up a good excuse, you owe us some special goodies in the morning! LOL

I wouldn't mind some pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream!

Sam, thanks as that is what I was asking, if the surgeon was pleased with his end product on the job he did. Hopefully recovery will do well and you will up and dancing in no time!

I drive to the lake tomorrow to pick the kid up from boot camp, so my short vacation from being Mr. Mom is over, more on that in the morning. LOL

Morning Folks,

Oh man, what in hades did those docs put in that medicine yesterday!? During my double-knee operation, I'm referring to. As noted, ol Sam must be quite the wuss!

Nah, I realize it was a pretty big dealeo. Not serious. But (still) surgery. Whatever that "dope" was, it played hell with my dreams last night. Weird stuff. Say, are docs using LSD for anesthesia these days? Ha!

Anyway. Enough about my stupid ol operation. I'm sounding like one of those old guys sitting around the cracker barrel showing off his scars, comparing medications. Wait! I AM one of those old men! Would you believe...aging?

As I said one time in another post: I just turned 60, but no problem...you do know, of course, that 60 is the new 59.

Thanks Tony for the kind thoughts. Yeah, this arthritis thing blows. No doubt. But truth is, I'm otherwise a very healthy man. Thank God. Amazing fact after all the freakin abuse I did to myself, and for so many years.

OK, folks. Since I can't sleep...hand me the coffee! And Tony, I'll take one of those delicious apple fritters!

OMike? Have a great, and safe, trip picking up your boy. That's a real cool thing all the way around.

best,

sam

OK, well I am human now.

Sam, Sam what are we going to do with you? LSD dreams? Whew, enjoy it! LOL

Sam, congratulations on being able to control your surgery recovery and the pain management. My friend that should make you feel pretty good inside and it is certainly inspiring and motivating for me!

Good Morning Dawn, hey sorry about the game and the sore legs. I'm proud of ya sore legs and all, your getting out and being active and that is so important. I hope that you can get something worked out on the mortgage, I know some are getting help, I hope your one of them!

Glad to hear the salon is busy that always helps and is a huge plus in keeping you positive.

Well yes I get to go pick up my little buddy today and attend boot camp graduation. Also today my MIL, the ole bitch is having her arm and shoulder put back together, so please keep the old bat in your prayers. She is a mess, but, she is my mess and I love her! God I hope she never reads this!

Today for recovery, well I get to humble myself and offer a heartfelt apology to someone I hurt yesterday. It wasn't intended, but, my smart-ass ways put my foot in my mouth . Gee, can you imagine me ever doing that! LOL

Anyway, that is a big part of my recovery, not letting things like that pass and taking care of them right away when needed. During active addiction I would have cared less.

I have two special things to share this morning, the first is from shopping on Craigs List. hehehe

http://columbus.craigslist.org/for/1245024803.html

The second is well, a good thought to begin the day with ............

Night has ended for another day, morning has come in a special way.
May U smile like the sunny rays and leaves your worries at the blue blue bay.

Hey everyone, we are in recovery, enjoy it, celebrate it and be good to yourself today!

Mike

Sooooooooo I go to the Drs. yesterday and first thing out of his mouth is YOU look great! I saw you walking from the parking lot and youv'e done something different!
HA....yes....yes I have. You boys are funny! Put some poundage on a womens breast and you guys all the sudden think WOW she looks great! lol I can't tell you how many comments on how great I look that I am getting from men! Weight goes to the top and bottom of me. So even though I am having a really tough time with the cankles everything is looking great! So anyway.....heres the Drs. opinion! Lab work and then a dieritic (sp) Says that since I have gained the weight so fast from not smoking that it is probably that causing it! He gave me a website to go to to get some weight loss ideas that are life changing not dieting! Which he doesn't believe works! I said this is going to be tough because I have NEVER had to lose weight my whole life! His response was IF you could quit smoking cold turkey you can do anything! Great job!
I'm not so sure but I'm going with his plan! And the website! Hope it works!

Omike.....your sons coming home already? WOW that went by quick! Are you excited? Have you talked to him since he has been gone? And ...... how did playing Mr. Mom work out! I started to giggle when you said that and thought about that movie Mrs. Doubtfire......remember when (ohhhhhhhh the guy that played in Mork and Mindy .....crap I can't remember his name now....you know who he is right!) anyway the movie was so funny! I was thinking was this a week of dress up for you! wink!!!! Come on......Tell us all about it!!!! We can keeep secrets here! wink

And Sam......wow...ouch....how are you this morning? You okay! What kind of donut you want....I'll go get it for you! Just sit back relax.....I got it! And coffee? Black? okay, okay.......whatever you want! NOW .......lets see? Are you able to put any wieght on those knees yet? You had both done at the same time? Dam they are miracle workers today! And yes that stuff they put us out with is a trip! 3 weeks ago I had a surgery and lots of wierd dreams that next night! Pretty graphic! I liked it! Colors, and odd behaviors in the dream.
Anyway.....I sure hope your okay this morning! Be careful with those pain pills. I only had to take 10 in 3 days! WOW can you believe that coming from me? I was impressed! Hang in there and do what the Dr. says!

Tony.....hey you okay? Working in this heat has to be killing you! Man its been HOT here in Cally! You okay!

Well hope everyone has a great day! Thanks for the donut......ah I mean 2 donuts.....shhhhhhhhhh don't tell . wink

I must have been writing at the same time as Dawnny! Morning Dawnny! Glad you stopped by! I'm really impressed with you playing ball! It is so cool to get out and do things again once we are in recovery! I dropped alot of things while I was out there loaded! Recovery turns out to be alot more fun! Believe it or not I can do ALL the things I did when I was younger! Even Flips on a trampoline! At 47! Pretty darn cool! Sooooo BIG KUDOS for getting back into playing ball!
About the house thing! It is there job to harrass you and call all the time! Remember they are just 8 dollar and hour employees doing there job! Don't let it get you down! Be nice and remember you do NOT have to answer the phone everyday! I finally said to one of them this::::: LISTEN THIS IS BOARDING ON HARRASSMENT! If I have a breakdown from your harrassing calls NO ONE WILL GET ANY MONEY and I will sue your company for harasment! THAT stopped them cold! They started apoligizing to me and said they would back off and put that down in there notes! They also said that I had the right to stop ALL the phone calls and have them contact me ONLY by mail if I wanted to do that! SO see if that is available to you! Oaky! I didn't want to be contacted by mail I just wanted for them to stop calling every other day! My financies didn't change from one day to the next! wink....Hang in there! And here's another tip! Here in California what they have to do is get your house payment down to 38% of your income! So do not take there first offer. I know this is scarey! BUT....believe me! They do not want to own your house! SELLING an empty property is difficult! SO before they even get to that point they will make deals and deals with you! Right up to the moment they say "IF we do not get any money by ....... Then the house will go on auction at blank blank day and time!" There are many negoiations before that! MANY! It will NOT be a surprize when they get that auction date! SO don't think they are going to march over and just kick you out of your house! They won't! Okay! FEAR is what you are having! Just treat these bank people with respect! Be very honest with them on your financil situation and they will work with you! I promise! AND remember this.......If GOD closes that door (the house and you have to move) then God will open something BETTER for you later down the road! You may not see it right this mnute BUT it will BE BETTER than you think! That is also a promise! TRUST and stay in the footwork! DON'T let FEAR make you make bad choices! REMEMBER we are going through this together! I'm still in my house and it has been a year and a half that I have been negoiating with the bank!
Have a good day! okay! BIG HUGS.

Thumbs up

LOL Tang, your killing me over her! hahaha

I'm going to share something and I hope it stands and is not edited out, but, we will see. Every now and then I go to the OBGYN with my wife and whenever we go to the doctors with the other, we always go in the examining room with each other. In fact, this actually happens often. So, we always laugh about this doctor because he always tells my wife that she "smalls nice" LOL .............. anyway, the first time I met him, some years ago during a regular exam, he didn't say that to her. So I got curious and said hey doc, what's wrong with my wife today? He seemed puzzled and said well what's up, you always tell her how nice she smells, doesn't she stink today? hahahaha ............ well he was left speechless and before he could gather his thoughts I said, oh, oh, I get it doc, your just being shy because I'm here. LOL

So Tang, seems that gaining a little weight isn't all bad, eh?

Hey, I'm glad he doesn't feel it is anything serious and he is spot on about the weight deal and diets. Life changing is where it's at. You can do it and I'll bet you will find it's not all that bad .............. now put that donut down!!!!!

Mr. Mom? LOL ............. I have been Mr. Mom every summer for the past 5 years and I have already given up that I read Women's World and you want more from me? oh your tough, Hmmm ............ I'm gonna have to think about this, I can't give away all of my secrets.

No, no calls from Boot Camp, it is total military lock down, so no phone calls. They do post pictures from the week on a web site and update them daily, so we have seen him in action. They even posted pictures of him learning how to organize a closet and make his bed, military style, so my wife and I are really excited about that. Hell, that makes the entire week worth it. LOL

http://firelandsnscc.org/ctc/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=6

Yeah I miss the little shit and it will be good to have him home!

Tang can you please share the web site your doctor gave you? It may help me as well.

Mike

I hate talking to them because they arent nice to me. I have wrote letters after letters asking for help, and they refused to do anything for me. i keep hearing banks work with people, well not me, they dont want to help me at all. Im still waiting for an answer from the bankers commission and the senator boxer. I hope they can help. it is very stressful. anyway you quit smoking cold turkey. how did you do it. i smoke almost 2 packs a day, i want to start cutting down. let me know how you started doing it. I know i would gain weight, but everybody in my family wants me to quit. my mom had emphazema, she was on oxygen 24/7, but she use to take the oxygen off and light up, its insane, and i seen how she coulnt breathe, and i still havnt quit. I enjoy smoking, sounds sick but i do, but i dont enjoy it when im running for the bases huffing and puffing. sunny rae needs to lose weight to maybe you can share whatever site you have to her. shes having a hard time. well thanks everybody for the help on the house i appreciate it. and i am enjoying softball so much im really happy with that, anybody have any tips playing on the outfield? I need it. I played 3rd base and pitcher, and center field. yesterday a high pop came my way thought i had it sun was in my eyes it touched my glove but dropped it, i was so so mad. oh well. everybody have a great day dawnny

He looked at me in amazment because I was so ready and not embarrassed. It was funny his exspression on his face.

Good morning to you all! I cannot believe that I am the first one up today! Everybody sleepin' in on a holiday Friday? Since I am the first one today, I made up a breakfast casserole that is in the warming oven-and I have a selection of flavored teas. Sorry about no coffee., I will leave that to the next person.

This is a good positive way to start my day having breakfast with my friends. I wish everyone a great Holiday weekend-stay positive-have fun-do something good for yourself each day-stay safe. Remember, living recovery is the best thing anybody can do for themselves. It can be a wonderful life as long as we stay focused on that which is good and fun.

Oops, just remembered I have to make a run to the store for some sparklers and snakes. Yes, that is how exciting my 4th of July is going to be.

Have a great day everybody!

Hey Folks,

Good morning!

Well, Nan---I reckon we're the ONLY two non-lazy-butts up on this pre-4th Holiday. Then again, I am pretttty lazy today.

The sparklers idea is a good one! And, like you, I would run to the store to get them myself...but I can't freakin run! Or walk! I'm on crutches! Ha!

Nah, truth is, both of my (newly operated on) knees are healing just fine, I think. And that disgusting back-boil is also healing. Did I say...dis-gusting!

OK, coffee time.

Up and at 'em, folks!

HELLO AGAIN

Well i woke up very early as usual and have been buying boat parts on E
Bay this is my second job LOL i am building several model boats the kind you see that have little gas engines and can be up to 5feet long it is a blast i have been doing this for some time now but i am really getting serious about it as now that i have been clean from hydros i no longer spend my hot afternoons at the gambling hall popping pills and pulling handles that was a bad bad deal does not make for a happy wife either.

OK every one i have a 2nd new lease on life as i look at it for some years i have been thinking of getting a more permanent type of work but have not really had much luck well my luck better then gambling changed yesterday
I have a new Job !!! of course i am still a building contractor but i am taking that a step further as i was hired by a property management co. 250
homes & businesses strong and growing and covers up to five towns in a 50 mile radius and it all happened yesterday at 3 pm do to the recent home foreclosure mess well some our taking that to an advantage be it management, or home and bus, owners as their is a need for many rentals well people are renting their second home and etc, and of course they require maintenance well this go getter of a Lady and her partners have been doing this a while but have always had trouble with the maintenance part and this is were i come in i am now in charge of overseeing these many property's and i am working as we speak as if their are any problems i will go to it and take care of it as needed example plugged sink call roto rooter or do it myself i have the option.
As well as i will still be bidding any work these homes need at the normal P&O as my normal business would be.
The best part is when we are in the middle of Dec. and i want to have a Christmas i can have one rain or shine as in a couple of months after a trial of my choice i can draw a salary from this company there were so many options on the table that i needed to sleep on it for a week or so as they gave me plenty of time to decide on what i wanted to do so every one this is a wonderful weekend as not only for this i am also turning 19years sober on the 5th what a explosive dynamite firecracker weekend it is for toboat .

Not to rush and i am not really but i will begin looking for a new truck but i also want to see what they may offer me for this a i will be doing alot of travel i have this thought that a small utility type truck may be just the ticket.

Well all that is my News thanks for listening and wish me luck this is a big
weekend and what better way to spend it by being clean and sober.

Tony. P. S . Have a wonderful 4th of July !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

good morning eveybody. i want to start the coffee but i dont have any. well ill make beleive starting the coffee ok! enjoy yourself with the invisable coffee. i had tea. not crazy about it. well im really thinking about selling my car back to toyota, its a matrix 2009 with 11,000 miles on it. they said they would give me 15,000, i know i can get more selling it on my own, but i really need the cash. what does everybody think about that. I really like the car, I bought that with the money my mom left me when she died. I keep asking my mom to tell me what to do. I think shes telling me get rid of it. I have my daughter asking me for some snickers. cant even do that. its so annoying. She does need them, the ones shes wearing are gone. I just have to pick up a cheap car for now, a couple of thousand just so I can get around, dont need nothing fancy. I just go back & forth to town. well everybody have a nice day, i have a color today and a h/c, at least thats something.

Oh wow Tony! That is just wonderful news. I am so happy for you and Diane. Sounds like a great opportunity and also sounds like you took the time to research it and make sure it would be a good fit. In your world of recovery,look, another good thing has come into your life. 19 years sober is also another wonderful milestone.Yep, you have lots to celebrate this weekend! Sorry to have missed chat, my 3 grandchildren had worn me out the last 3 days and I was sleeping! lol Happy Fourth of July!

Sam, glad to hear you are coming along ok, even though a little more "slowly" because of the crutches. Now don't take this wrong but maybe you needed to be slowed down a little for a few days-lol Send somebody else to the store for the sparklers-and you just take advantage of your disability-allow them to wait on you for awhile! Hope you have a great weekend too!

Hi Nan & thank you for your kind words

You know i wrote a post just minutes ago to you explaining the history of this company i am working for now and again like so many here i posted and lost it this gets so aggravating as it has happened to me so many times and so many others i have read about.

I wonder if this format could be changed as to stop this i guess this is a question for Nancy i am not going to bother it with it now but i am going to look into it .

Sure i need to be more careful but if it had a save icon at least that would sure help Oh well quit griping Tony you should feel lucky to have this place to come to LOL.

Bye for now all ..................... Tony.............................................. ....

Hi Tony, if you lose something, hit the 'back' button and it might still be there. Sometimes that happens when there's a glitch in the internet connection if you're on wireless internet. I switched to hardwire internet myself a while ago and it hasn't happened since. If you're going to write a long post, think about writing it in a word processing program, such as Microsoft Word, and then copy and paste it into the reply box.

Hope this helps, again, congrats on the job.

Nancy

Good TGIF Morning Everyone!

Sorry about being MIA for the early shift, but, I had to visit the witch this AM at the hospital. Yes, yes, I went being dragged and kicking.

Looks like she is going to be in there for a little longer, thank God! She needs the care!

Anyway, I have a couple calls to make and I'll be right back. Thanks Nan, Sam, Dawny and Tony for getting things started this morning!

Mike

Whew, well TGIF and hey, Tomorrow is the 4th so I'm sure many celebrations begin today!

Well the mother-in-law still has her broom parked at the hospital and she may be there for a little while. What was to only be a over night stay has turned into a longer engagement. Of course I'm not surprised, I figured once they got to know her they would want to keep her and explore other issues with her! But so far no complication from the surgery, just very sore and really doesn't need to be at home alone. hehehe

Tony, what can I say except good things do come to good people! God always provides and I am thrilled for you! It's not like we are old friends, but, I feel confident saying they picked a good man and a good person for the job, they will not be disappointed.

Tony, this is just more of the rewards of recovery, enjoy it, you have earned it and be proud of yourself, you have come a long way and your doing good things for yourself and Diane!

Nan!!!!! .................... Hey it's great to see you here for breakfast! A casserole sounds perfect. My youngest daughter fixes those once in a while for breakfast and I love them! Thank you!

Hey Sam, glad your healing up just fine and can get up and around. I hate crutches. I had to use them once due to a high school football injury and it stunk.

Hiya Dawny, hey, no coffee???? LOL ............. Dawny, you know what I think about the car deal from my one post to you about your situation. Dear, cars and be purchased at any time and they come and go. If you need the money, then find something reliable which you can afford to pay cash for and use the rest of the money for other obligations. I know it sucks, but really, it is OK, you have so many wonderful things in your life, please don't let the material things drag you down. Hang in there!

oh and Tony, Nancy is correct writing in word and then copy and pasting it into the post is a good way to do it. I write in my email box then move it over into a post.

HAIRGIRL ............. Welcome! ............ This is a thread to help us get up and get our days started on a positive note. Share some, joke some and most of all, share about what we are going to do for our recovery for the day or why our recovery is so important for the day. So please, join in. Whoever get's here first each morning starts the coffee!

Well this morning I checked in on the MIL and now I am baby sitting my granddaughter. I'm not sure what the rest of the day holds for me. The boy is back from boot camp and he was up at 5am , LOL boy was that a shocker and then we went outside to run! No shit, he was running at 5 am and he is out there running again!

Hmmmm ............. it will be interesting to see how long this lasts, but, I am going to try and motivate him into keeping it going.

Here is a little ditty about the new day!

It makes me so happy, this is what I'm gonna do, Send a good morning right back to you, Good Morning my Friends!
HAVE A WoNdErFuL GoOd MoRnInG.


And remember, treat yourself good today!

Mike

Hope this helps, again, congrats on the job.

Deanna, you come on in, make yourself at home and the French Vanilla is on you! lol

Welcome to the group and yes, it is a good way to begin the day.

Well the granddaughter was just picked up by the grandmother from the other side. She was soaking wet as I introduced her to battery powered and pump charged water blasters and she had her first water fight. Needless to say I soaked her and she soaked me! lol

Talk about the rewards of recovery, folks, there it is ............. the stuff money cannot buy!

Mike

Oh that brings back memories of when my son was little! We used to have water fights in the summer. I cant believe how fast he grew up. It seems like just a year ago he was a little boy and now he is riding a motorcycle and looking for a job!
Well, I got the cappaccino here....better hurry up, there wont be any left, I love the stuff!
Everyone have a safe and Happy Independence Day! Deanna

Good morning all! I am grabbing a cup of the french vanilla before it is all gone. Thanks Deanna! It is a rainy, cool day here today but we are going to have a family gathering in spite of it. It is a blessing to be able to share time with family and find enjoyment in everyday life. I always told my kids, people are important, "things" just don't matter. So I hope everyone has a good day, and stay safe and secure!

Nan
