Sweet! Thanks Yigg!

I went looking, but got trapped in a bunch of other threads found under the same search... like how to prepare to be naked.

I rarely reach my original destination in searches here. I guess it's practice for the real playa......

:wink:

AntiM. This one was here first. Merge away!

Don't you go depriving us of these things! The latter is one of those things that make me smile each day, and the former... well.... let's just say I'm looking forward to seeing if the actual lives up to my imagination of just how "bad" it might be. (totally counting on adding my bad dancing to yours at some point this summer! Bad dancing rocks!!!)

Anyone else with something to celebrate?




22 years ago TODAY, after an awful 10 year run on meth/crank I
finally had to say enough is enough and quit. I haven't touched it since.

Okay, now, no one give me any shit about this one, okay? During Valentine's
Day I decorated the local AA Ukiah Fellowship Group Meeting Hall. By hand,
mind you, I cut out (I kid you not) 2486 various sized hearts made
from pink and red construction paper. I wrote positive affirmations on them
and taped them all over those freaking bare ugly boring walls. It was soooo
beautiful, but there was so much pink it looked like somebody puked up
pink Pepto Bismol all over over the place. hee hee. Well, I sent 3 pictures
into the AA Grapevine Magazine, an international magazine about sobriety
and recovery - with over 2 million readers. TODAY I was notified that one
of the photographs was selected to be in the May 2011 issue.
They said
it was very creative and artistic.

It will be in the section IF WALLS COULD TALK.

Somebody peel me off the ceiling. :P

No white knuckling here, hon. Now that I have other medical issues in my life under control, I no longer have the desire to self-medicate. I can't explain it. It's like it doesn't exist anymore. I don't believe in the "disease" theory of addiction/alcoholism anymore. It's a dead-end road that leads nowhere, because once you believe that you have it, you're stuck with it, and it stops you from looking for the real underlying causes that cause addiction.

I never have believed in the whole "I'm powerless" stuff. It never felt right in my gut. I went along with it for years, but inside I kept saying bullshit. I took my power back 6 months ago. I need empowerment and positivity in my life in order to stay on my path. I don't believe in Mr Invisible. He/She/It wasn't there when I was shooting shit in my veins or drinking myself into oblivion. Nobody saved me or lead me by the hand and said Stop This. I said stop. I said it was time to quit.

I think rehabs or whatever kinds of programs that are out there should re-evaluate how they are trying to help addicts/alkies and (1) Give people their power back, (2) Show them that it's a choice, and (3) identify the "underlying causes", such as trauma, depression, low self-esteem, or chemical imbalances such as bipolar disorder or attention deficit disorder, etc. Today I want good nutrition, meditation, the wisdon of the Dalai Lama, yoga, nature, family, friends, BM events, decorating, sewing, crafts. camping, painting, creating, being in love with my man, being a better mom, and being a full-time Grannypoo to my precious grandson. No white knuckling here. I'm happy.

Seriously. Mark my words.

Had to get up at 3:30 yesterday morning for a ghastly early start of 4:45 at work. Fortunately, that meant I was liberated by 1:00pm.

After work, my plan included nothing more than crashing out on the couch for a good couple-hours nap…. But it was such a nice day outside. Fiercely sunny and WARM (although they say it only ever got one degree above freezing….. I swear it was balmy)..

So I went outside. Grabbed myself a chaise longue and placed it in the sun, set up for a nice nap outside, insulated carafe of hot chocolate by my side.

But the snow was calling me. Wouldn’t let me unhinge. It had PLANS for me.

I started shoveling in the yard at about 2:00. When my daughter saw what I was up to, she joined me at about 4:00. Together we shoveled and built and molded until we couldn’t anymore.
By 6:30 we had ourselves a 10’ fort out in the side yard for the firepit. Walls varying between 4 and 6 feet high providing wind-break and privacy…. Snowbenches…. Stairs coming in…. A protected platform for my reclining-chair-in-the sun…. heheheh.



When my husband came home and saw what we were up to he smiled. The smile of “Sweet! But I can’t believe that the one day you don’t HAVE to shovel, you do this!â€

I got the results of my mammogram. One of the masses was a calcium mass and it was small. Lots of women get them and it's ok to have them. The other mass was a fibrocystic mass most women get.

Soooooo...I'm fine!! My boobies are in no danger!




I thought this definitely deserved to be lifted out of the Fuck file and placed in the sparkly pile.

Fuck Yeah!!! MA. Best news I've heard all day!!!!

Give those give those boobies of yours a shake and call it a happy dance!!!!

Maryanimal, if you haven't met Piney yet, you should know she is an incredible hugger, even by burning man standards.

So, even her long distance hugs should count for something.

I got severely flirted at by a pair of brutally hot 19-year olds last night. I should have dragged one them home.
