Hey there! How was your weekend? I hope it was great. I had a good weekend, very productive. My boys were at their Dad's house, but my step-daughter was with us and we had a good weekend. I cleaned house, John worked in the yard, I tackled the infamous basket of mismatched socks, hosted a party and still did not drink any alcohol. Not too shabby! It hasn't even been hard for me to not drink, I'm finding that hard to believe, but it's true. Saturday night we had a party, we had lots of good food, everyone else had drinks and I had sparkling water with a dash of cranberry juice, it looked like a Cape Cod, it tasted good and I didn't miss drinking. I did pretty good food wise Saturday night, but on Sunday, I ate way too much. I don't know what drove that, other than the fact that there were some left over brownies and I indulged. Anyway, true to form, after a day of band slammed shut today, I'm tighter than tight, and have already PB'd 3 times today. When will I ever learn? Probably not anytime soon, since I'm about 2 years out and haven't caught on yet, lol! I'm ready for my boys to come home today, I miss them. I don't have to cook tonight, since I made the biggest pot of Jambalaya on Saturday, so they can have left overs tonight. I'm looking forward to watching the Voice....darn, I'm hooked. I hope you all have a great Monday and a great week ahead.

Big Hugs!

Sounds like a great weekend to me! I'm so proud of you for not drinking! Good for you! Don't worry though, the tee totaler that I usually am had a Blue Hawaiian last night out at dinner with friends....I was drunk on one drink! What a cheap date I am!

You are inspiring me! No drinking during the week for me! And it HAS been difficult for me, but my back has been out for a week, so I can't spare the calories when I'm not working out! Knowing you're out there not drinking is helping me!

My Sock Procedure: I only buy and wear navy or black socks with trousers. So when I need two the same I take three socks from the drawer. Thassit. Whatever colour comes out I choose my navy or black trousers to go with them.

I'm so thrilled for you that you're still not drinking! I can well imagine you were worried about that, but I never doubted you for a second!

I'm hooked on the voice too, but I'm 2 episodes behind so I'd better get watching so I can catch up!!

No drinks you say...? And you are still the life of the party? I may have to follow your lead. MAYBE.
Miss you!
