Hey, Hello, Goodmorning, Goodevening...

Boring here...ok, so when it gets boring...i hop over to Sober Recovery and therre is another forum to see new circumstances...and help other people...and of course to be helped.

Its been quiet....I can't think of a good topic right now..maybe i can pick one up there and bring it back...

i still check like often...but I always need to type to keep mind busy as I sit on couch..

I've been up since early.

Been to gym

Eaten 3x or more

Went to Salon for hair dye

Bla, bla..and I'm still bored.

I don't know HOW I wasn't bored when I just sat here...and drank ALL DAY and ALL NIGHT LONG.

    I know for me I didn't care if I was bored when I drank heavy. Usually the next day I felt like such crapbI prayed for boredom because I had no energy for anything else. Do you work Missy? I know personally speaking once I get off work. Cook supper clean that up. Tend to the plants and flowers. Feed the dogs. Play with them. Take off my makeup pick out clothes for work the next day. I am not bored at all. Been up since six. It's now 815 pm and finally get to chill for a minute and chat with you??

      No poppy I am unable to work at this time.

      Lots of testing going on for the past 2 years.

      Lots of drama too wink

      Even when I did work...I wasn't bored...but I was too frustrated and overwhelmed with all the daily activites...and was bored with THAT routine as well.

      After the kids would go to bed...i belonged to another forum that ended up shutting down after about 6 years...I'm always chatting.

      Yeah, I often feel bored even though I have loads to do, and loads of interesting things too. When I feel bored I feel like drinking.

      Exactly my problem h1954.

      That is why I am always typing like a maniac.

      I have already been out today...and I am going back out.

      I don't have alot of communication with my b/f - he is a guy....a quiet guy....and I'm the one babbling all the time.

      I like forums because people babble back!

      And right now...going to make stuffed fish.

      They are good at replying, it's true.

      So you lots of chatty time.

      My husband has to listen to me talking all day long, too, and he's a quiet man.

      Possibly because he has no opportunity to get a word in edgeways.

      Like the sound of stuffed fish.  How do you make it Misssy?
    • Posted a few pieces of cooked shrimp (chop it in small pieces) and some chopped clams (like 1/4 pound)....add a little onion about 1/2 onion...and some garlic.

      Ritz crackers crushed...mixed with butter, shrimp, onion, garlic and in the center of a cod or haddock...and roll...bake for about 40 minutes....Came out very good.

      Just don't do what I do...I always ADD TOO MUCH BUTTER....To moisten the crackers..use only like a tbs of butter and the rest water.
