New here🤗

Hey everyone… I’m new here.. but ive been keeping a paper journal for 50 years now and have saved all my journals in many boxes…I’ll be 60 this June and very happy about that! I despised my twenties….. enjoyed my 30’s…. disliked my 40s…. and the first five years of 50 really knocked the hell out of me……Enjoying my dotage now as  I approach the next decade in my life…..Life has never been better for me….. except for those wonderful carefree days of childhood…Today should be a good day I hope …. getting my bangs trimmed at the salon…. the moment my bangs hit my eyelids it has to be cut….. then going to Walmart to pick up some cheese.. apples… can of coffee….Marie Callender’s Sweet and Sour Chicken… (yummy). It’s about 8 am here in NC with a below freezing temp of 30 degrees…How I love ❤ cold weather!…. My 3 cats…Sweetie (13)…. Napoleon my  Siamese (2) … and Bailey my orange cat…(2) ….. are all curled up in my bed with me …. I have all the heat turned off in my house except my little bedroom spot heater…. so nice and cozy in here this early morning……Talking to my beloved friend Ellen this morning on the phone… we talk on and off for hours thru out the day…. I’d be lost without her friendship… I’ve been retired since   2001…..from working in medical laboratories for 20 years…I was a functioning alcoholic for most of my career… sober now going 17 years…Back in my drinking days I looked  forward to getting off my 10 hour shift to a six pack of chilled Miller Lite… putting one cold Miller Lite in the freezer to chill even more and opening my first beer of the day….. I lived for that beautiful moment of my day…. longed  for it…. the first sip of an ice cold brew sent me into raptures of contentment and joy…..I drank every nite like this for 30 years…  Self medicated  and also started on Prozac in 86……and other Meds….. not a wise  mix ….alcohol and pharmaceuticals….. to be continued:
