  • So sorry about your dad, Gary! Happy New Year, Everyone. I think we can be grateful and hopeful, even if there isn't anything better right away. Grateful and hopeful are my "intentions" since I don't make resolutions anymore. I did start a 10-day cleanse. No booze, of course, just lean protein and vegetables of the…
  • Nice! I like the ocean views from my apartment but no outside access-it's the 4th/top floor and no patio or anything! It was just my husband and I for Thanksgiving, but we went to Carmel for a night and did see some of Big Sur and McWay falls, so pretty down there. It will just be us for Christmas too. But we can work from…
  • So sorry about your beloved pet, Gary <3 It sounds like you were lucky to have each other! My mom got a french bulldog in March, they are so cute! Her friend raises them. I have been drinking a lot lately! Every day last week and then I got a Sun/Mon 0s but then had beers Tuesday, champagne in the park with friends on…
  • F-U-2020, seriously! I am sorry you have all of that to deal with Ryz, that's terrible :( I logged a couple of 0s because I think I had food poisoning or stomach bug, finally feeling good today. Husband's bday is tomorrow and we plan to go to a hotel in Monterey and he can golf (at Bayonet-Black Horse, not Pebble Beach,…
  • Yay! Girls are the best ;) The air was bad and when you can't go out and or open a window it makes you a little crazy. Luckily air has been better here in SF but I understand that new fires are burning in Napa/Sonoma so the air quality will probably get bad again. Hope everything is ok, hoping to get up there with friends…
  • So cute! Been lucky to get one no drinking day each week. I decided beer and popcorn on Sunday is a beloved ritual;) Simple things... Also celebrated paying of my student loan, woo hoo!
  • The virtual brewfest was good. I liked the beers! I had a couple of weeks where I got three 0s but last week only 2 and now this week will see. Hubs opened a bottle of wine last night and then tonight I am celebrating a work report getting approved-yah, made a marg! Tomorrow is Friday so I probably will drink... That's fun…
  • Just getting caught up, Gary, glad you are ok and sorry about your wife's cousin. I was just hearing about how bladder infections can kill you if the infection goes to your blood, sepsis. I had a bladder infection in April but I got it treated just fine. Glad your son could come, Syd. I am in San Francisco and we have been…
  • Nice! Spain!Sold that house, yet, Syd? Kauai was awesome, had a great time. Did some incredible hikes and we did the helicopter tour, and it was amazing to see the island from above. We also did a whale watching on a zodiac which was great because we could get close but we got soaked! My traveling companion doesn't drink…
  • Had a good time at Disney! I got a couple of drinks at the new Star Wars Oga's cantina, it was pretty cool and the drinks were good. It's pretty well booked but our friends live near there and gave us their reservation cuz they can go back and have annual passes and all. Also, there's beer at a lot of the concessions in…
  • Thanks, Syd, it sounds like a crazy market there and hopefully it works out, sounds promising on the buying and selling! good luck! I had half-bottle of red Friday and Saturday I had a margarita at Taco BEll in PAcifica, it's a "cantina" so they serve alcohol. It was good but it didn't taste very strong. Then I had three…
  • Congrats, Syd, that's wonderful! I hope your new home comes through quickly! I have had a pretty good week-lots of 0s! even a 0 on a Friday, 1 on Saturday and 0 Sunday through Wed. The scale hasn't budged which is a little discouraging, I thought I might get a little encouragement with that but that's ok... The gym wasn't…
  • Happy NEw Year, Lushes! Had a lushy Christmas, didn't log anything. Got a couple more days of rest with the Leigh Peele plan and start week 5 on Sunday. Hoping to drop a couple of pounds in the next few months. Not looking forward to the gym in January!
  • I had a few drinks Friday-vodka soda, two palomas, 1/2 bottle of red but I logged it all anyway! Saturday I only had one glass of wine and nothing on Sunday. 6 drinks for the week isn't so bad...are we still counting a bottle as 4 drinks? Congrats on being down a couple of pounds, Gary! I stuck to all my workouts and I…
  • weed doesn't have calories either, good choice;) I had fun at the drag brunch and had half a bottle of champagne. Will manage 0s til Friday, got happy hour plans then. I have stuck to the first two days of Leigh Peele. I just said that like y'all knew what I was talking about but it was a plan I followed 5 years ago!
  • I was able to make it without drinking Mon-Thurs. We split a bottle of wine last night. Tonight we are going to sushi and a movie. I am not sure if I will drink, no real need to. maybe save my calories for popcorn. We are seeing "Knives Out" and of course, drag brunch tomorrow. I am going to start the old Leigh Peele…
  • So much turkey :) I had a very lushy long weekend and no fun traveling on Sunday (spent all night in the Salt Lake City airport, thanks, Delta). Planning a sober week except for the drag brunch Sunday because if your ticket includes a drink not getting an alcoholic drink just doesn't make fiscal sense ;) I am planning to…
  • Gary, I am so sorry about your dad! I lost my dad to cancer in 2013 and hospice was to come the next day but he passed. He was only 63 and only lived a year after his diagnosis so I don't think he was ready. He was sort of confused about what hospice meant and in Denver at that time they didn't really have a place, they…
  • I had a bit better of a weekend than usual because my husband didn't feel like drinking Friday so I had a couple of beers. Saturday I had a can of wine at mod pizza, it was pretty good, I didn't really think that 12 oz is like 2.5 glasses? Then we went out and I had a paloma and a beer, so 4.5 drinks. Sun-Wed=0s Got a…
  • Last week Mon and Tues=0 Wed= 2 drinks Thursday=0 drinks. Friday=4 drinks Saturday=6 drinks Sunday=3 drinks Monday=2 drinks In-laws were visiting and I was eating a bunch of great food. I felt earthquakes for the first time. The first one was small, last week, and then last night it was much longer, stronger. Still…
  • M-W=0 drinks Th=1, Fri=4, Sat=6, Sun=2 Argentinian steakhouse was good, we split a bottle of tepranillo an 18-oz ribeye, shrimp and veggie skewers, pork belly, and churros for dessert!. Now, another week. Check in tomorrow.
  • Yay! That sounds good... crash and recover I had no drinks Sun-Wed then had one wine Thurs. didn't even really want it. Tonight I had 4 beers. Tomorrow we are going to HArdley Strictly Bluegrass is Golden Gate PArk to see Robert Earl Keen. Will probably have a few drinks. Sunday is my husband's bday and we're going to an…
  • That sounds stressful! You have my sympathies :# I had a lushy few days. Wednesday I ended up at happy hour for margs and then there were tequila shots :s then Thursday we saw Social Distortion and I had several beers. I felt pretty bad Friday and didn't drink anything but then went to Napa to see Rob Thomas and had…
  • Thanks! I will let you know how it goes-Rob Thomas and the drinking and logging!
  • Well, I know it's been a long time I have been MIA but I have remained lushy, hope you'll have me back! We were in Denver but live in San Francisco the last three years. We just went to Yosemite this last weekend. I am trying to limit drinking to 3 nights per week and going to get better about logging everything. I have…
  • Kate, we tried the drive to Hana when I was in highschool but we all got car sick and had to turn around! Pineapple wine sounds good, I like pineapple... I opened a bottle of chard someone brought for my bday, I don't usually like chard; but there's alcohol abuse and there's alcohol neglect and I can't abide either. I had…
  • today I had raisin toast with cream cheese. Sometimes I do frozen waffle (toasted) with almond butter, it's portable, also I like vanilla greek yogurt with pineapple. A quiche is a good way to get some eggs and veggies and can warm up a slice each day if you have a fridge and micro.
  • Wow, I saw it was national margarita day and I poured tequila (Christmas present) into a Sprite (leftover from a party in October), but I didn't drink anymore that that, so that's a win, I suppose. I did have a margarita Friday (after a wine spritzer) and Saturday I had 4 beers, I think. I had a big glass of wine Sunday,…
  • Thanks all! Anything else you want to give me tips, advice, places to eat, places to live, sites to visit in the Bay Area, I am happy to hear suggestions! Last night I finished the bottle of wine, Mike helped, then opened another bottle but did not finish it!
  • Wow, been too long. Go Broncos:) I had my 1976-themed 40th bday party and that was fun. Last weekend we were in San Francisco, I got a job a there and we will be relocating there (not sure when because its another federal job and have to get a security clearance then it's official and I give notice). which is huge because…
