Em - were you able to do the chat thing??? I created a sign in and got on, but I don't see anyone elses e-mails as contacts - have you figured it out yet? If so, let me know - it will be a nice feature to your blog! Can't wait to talk with you and mommaof3!!! Completed my 1st Step tonite with my sponsor at exactly 7:11 p.m. (CST) - feeling pretty damn good right now - I'm on my way, I'm on my waaaayyyy, Home, Sweet, Hooommmeee!!! Had to throw in a little Motley Crue in there!! Annette
Annette-I am trying right now. I think I need peoples email to do it, if you feel comfortable send me yours. I could set up a time to chat with mommaof3 you and me...so cool! I am so proud of you for doing your first step! It sounds like you have a great sponsor who is getting you into the steps right away. You are sooo on your way sweetie!!!! Em
Emily and Annette, don't know the time differential, but count me into your chat if you're willing...firstname.lastname@example.org
YEA Annette!!!!! Way to go! I am so excited for you.What are your New Year's Eve Plans? I hoped to write about last New Year's Eve on my blog but my 2 yr old with a tummy bug side stepped my plans. Now I feel iffy.....Let's figure out a way to chat, I'm not sure how to either-G'night-
Em, Steve & mommaof3 - we (the fam) are taking off this afternoon driving to our condo at the lake of the ozarks, spending a few days there, then off to Branson for a few days, then off to Eureka Springs for a few days and then back home on Sunday. It was my idea to take a "roadtrip" when my group of girlfriends started talking about having the big New Year's Eve party at my house on Thursday - not a good idea considering the newness of my sobriety (12 days today - yea!!!). So I will be spending the big nite w/only my boys probably in a hotel somewhere probably watching movies - how bout you guys??? Can't wait to chat w/you all!!! Annette
That is very smart Annette! I am going to try to do the chat thing every Sunday evening. I am horrible at trying to figure out the time zone deal. I live in Arizona and we never change time. So you guys decide what time is best for you. 6,7,8 or 9 Arizona time all work for me so you guys let me know:) Everyone have a super rad day!! Em
A- hope you are having a fabulous trip!!
mommaof3 - yes, so far we are having a great time! We've been watchin movies, grilling out steaks, went bowling yesterday, not sure what we're doin today - something other than watchin movies tho!!! LOL We're leaving in the morning for Branson and decided to just make Eureka Springs a day trip on Saturday and then we'll be back home Sunday! Can't wait for our live chat on Sunday nite!!! Hope you have a Happy & Sober New Year! Hugs - AnnetteP.S. - saw your post about not being real open about your sobriety - I'm gonna be in a similar situation and it kinda sucks - I'm a pretty big volunteer & committee member at my boys' schools so I'll have to be careful with who I tell so as not to hinder any of my or my boys' relationships with friends. Some people look at alcoholism as leprosy and merely don't understand or know enough about it - don't wanna risk it. Again, Hugs - Annette
