The days keep stacking up!

Whether it's a good day or bad day and with this Covid 19 pandemic spreading throughout the world there's more bad days than good with tons of worry and stress I'm a news fanatic whether it's Canadian news or American news I tend to watch both because so much that happens in the States affects Canada anyway I've decided this morning to back away from the news somewhat maybe I'll catch 30 minutes in the morning and another 30 at night that's plenty enough. I don't need to be stuck in front of the TV 3 hrs a day or on my tablet catching all the news channels CTV, CBS, CBC, NTV, NBC, CNN, FOX, Global NB and the National, I like to know what's happening in the world BUT not at the EXpense of stressing myself out to the point of thinking aaah just one would be okay because that's a downright LIE and thankfully I know better and so do each of you reading this I am also a recovering alcoholic with 9 years of Sobriety and I know that just one drink could send me back to drinking 7 days a week so I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that relapsing just isn't an option for either, I need to stick with my sobriety as well as my smobriety because my life depends on it just as each of you must stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W because it's KEY to a Smokefree Life and thankfully as difficult as it can be in those early days and weeks it's also very Doable and totally worth it and even those of us that have lots of time under our belts we must remember and N.E.F - Never Ever Forget that horrid DAY ONE because going backwards isn't an option anymore BUT each and every Day WON is a GIFT of LIFE that we must nurture and protect so we can be around with the best quality of LIFE possible.....

My son and fiance called this morning and their 11 year old pug Bruce passed away in my sons arms this morning he had just got home from the graveyard shift of 11 to 7 he said it was like Bruce waited for him to come home to take his last breath they brought him over and Mark put him in the casket he built for Samantha Digger Jane our 16 year old baby girl that passed on the 7th of December we have to wait for the snow to go and the ground to thaw to bury them they're out in our old henhouse until then it's so hard to lose our furbabies losing Bruce brought back the pain of losing Sam like it was just yesterday.....
