    Howdy all :)

    I've been making an effort to rejoin the board. Unfortunately my computer has other ideas at times. There are times when it crashes every single time I try to come to this site. Today it is cooperating so I am taking the opportunity to reach out and say hello.

    I have missed you all terribly.

    Quick update, Tink is home after 2 psychiatric hospital stays back to back. The first time she was in for a month, they discharged her, and she went back in the very next day. That time she stayed 2 weeks. They discharged her again this past Tuesday. So far, so good.

    In my own world I have lost 85# since June. I love that I can wash a dish and not have to take a nap afterwards. Go, me. Oh, and I had 6 years clean last month.

    Gonna cross my fingers that the computer behaves...I so miss being here.

    And we miss you!!!!

    Do any of your step sons know how to work on computers? Maybe they could help you get a computer that works. If someone is savvy with computers, they can go to the thrift store, pick up all the pieces they need for next to nothing, and build a pretty kick butt computer.

    I am so glad Tink is doing better. You guys are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Keep fighting the warrior mom battle, and you will overcome all of this mess.

    So good to 'hear' from you. Congrats on the weight loss. Hope things continue to do well with difficult child.

    About your computer...not sure how old it is, but I know a certain store is having a DIRT CHEAP sale on laptops on Black Friday. They are as low as $200 and quite the powerhorses.

    Hugs to you and I hope you can get back on and give us all a hard time.:tongue:

    BBK!!!!!! HELLOOO KITTY!!!!

    I have missed you something fierce! I am so glad you are doing better. I hope that Tink is on the "right path" now and will continue to improve.

    Way To Go!!! on the weight loss, but you could have hidden it from me, couldn't you?

    I am so proud of you, losing weight is hard, and 6 YEARS Sober is incredibibble!!!!!
    I hope your computer can be fixed or replaced with-o problems.

    Do what you need to. We will be here whenever you can get to us. We love you and pray for you whether we hear from you or not!

    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    I think of you constantly as well. Especially when Jeff and I are fighting over which jersey the girls will wear during game time... some days we split them up!
    One Bear one Niner...
    But the Bears will always have a soft spot in my heart.

    I am so happy for the good things in your life.
    Did the Kitties get to stay?
    I truly hope this has put Tink in the direction she needs. You both have been through so much, I am praying for some stability.

    BBK! I'm joining the chorus too. I've missed you something fierce and it's great to see you.

    Congratulations on the weight loss. And double congratulations on hitting the 6 year milestone. That's WONDERFUL!

    Glad to hear that Tink is more stable and hope that it continues.

    Sending many hugs!

    Daisylover - I enjoyed that hug very much. Feel free to do it again.

    Janet - I think about you often. It is really good to be back.

    Trinity we must have typed at the same time. I have been thinking of you as well. Every single time a Canadian goose poops on the sidewalk I think to myself "why can't Trinity round up these critters and bring them back to Canada"... ;)

    Ahh, there's always a corner for any of us. Remember...any city, just go down Main Street to the first abandoned building. Take a right and go down the stairs. You can even decorate it!!
