Well I changed my gravatar to be a picture of me and on the about page of the blog. I figured if any of my friends are reading this, which I highly doubt, then I’ll have a friend who is either trying to get sober or is sober. I would love to have someone close […]
We’ve had such beautiful, sunny days here in Chicagoland, I’m afraid of what’s to come. It can be grey day after day after day once November hits, we may not have a sunny day until March. It’s worse here than Seattle. I’m really effected by the sun. It controls my moods. You know where this […]
90 days sounds longer than 2 months 28 days, doesn’t it? My treat today is a facial. I’ve never had one before. I waited a long time for special treats. I was 55 for my first pedicure, now I have them all the time. 60 for my first massage, now it’s every couple months. And […]
I don’t know why, I don’t even know these people but I feel such disappointment when a fellow blogger relapses. I don’t want this to happen. I want them to see how good it can be sober, how much better it will be. Stay the course. I failed many times over many years, I guess […]
I was just thinking about the bruises I used to find in the mornings when I got in the shower. I knew I had tripped or run into something, but too drunk to remember when or where. I also remember stumbling and falling several times in the closet while trying to get undressed and into […]
I had a little blip on my radar last Thursday. I’d had a stressful day. I’m caring for my almost 4 month old daughter 7:30-5:30, Monday through Friday until the end of the year. Her mom went back to work and I felt she was too little to go into day care just yet so […]
Just pinned this on my Pinterest board. “We cannot start over, but we can begin now, and make a new ending.” I think I’ll stick that on the fridge.
I don’t know about you but I find I’m laughing more now. Really enjoying life instead of passing through. It feels so good to laugh. I feel genuine again. Does that make sense to you?
Today I’m 80 days sober, I’m having breakfast with a friend as a treat. I’m also babysitting my 3 month old granddaughter so she’s coming along. That’s another story for another day. My phone tells me I’ve saved $1341 so far by not drinking. I have not been stingy on treats and rewards so in […]
It’s all in the timing. How did this happen? I thought I was completely alone. I had searched for sober blogs before, looked all over the internet for people like me. Oh, I found a couple blogs but nothing and no one spoke to me. That was a couple years ago, ok maybe 3. I […]
