Yak Yak

After a long day at the office, I stopped and bought four new plants, came home and played in the dirt.  It was just what I needed.  I wish I could make a living without working.  Please feel free to make suggestions on that.

I am meeting a sponsee on my lunch break today.  She has 6 months sober and just spent a week in Vegas for a family wedding.  She can't imagine why she is now "kinda crazy."

I'm having nonsensical thoughts this morning about calling into work afraid...."I'm afraid I won't make it in today."  Calling in blind....."I can't see myself coming into work today."  I just want to go buy some more plants because when I find something that day/hour or minute that I like, I just want to keep doing it.  That has sort of been like a THEME for me all my life. LOL

You're too funny.

As far as making money without working, try inheriting oil & gas royalties from family. That's what I did. It's working so far. And it allows me to pursue my recovery full-time while buying plants often. And then playing in the dirt.

omg!!
When I find something I enjoy, its balls to the walls - all or nothing. There is NO inbetween for this alchy, no moderation whatsoever!!
Ha, uh, ya,, I got ya!

The Vegas thing got me too. I'll have six months May 10th and recently went to Vegas as my husband had business there - ACK!!! I don't gamble (realize if I start, it will become my "new" addiciton) and, duh, I don't drink. It was a test of tolerance and I passed. Nuff said

Last, the "plant" thing reminds me of that movie where the sober dude had to keep a plant alive, then he was ready for a relationship - something to that affect - ha, saw the flick nearly ten years ago while in treatment - amazed I recalled that much of it - :)

My only advice on not working is to do what I do, though it is not very lucrative. I just complted my BS degree and am rolling right into my Masters program - so,,,,,,,,, I'm a professional student.
And poor

How about calling in, but keeping your co workers guessing. "I don't know if I'll make it in today."

I dearly love retirement! I highly recommend it.

i've heard that if you do what you love, the money will follow. i'm sure it's probably a process, but i think it's worth a try..talk to your higher power first of course. planting and selling squash at local farmer market?

you'll be great at what ever you do!god don't make no junk...this means u.;-)

could you please do a post on why it is that addicts cannot or will not accept help from parents? everytime we offer help, it never works. i can help others with great success but not my own child. why is that? is it that he is not ready or is it b/c we are the parents?
