Back to the cold, the snow, the ice. Shit Shit Shit. Instead of complaining I should be grateful I had a chance to go somewhere warm and green and beautiful. And I am grateful, but will spring ever come to the Midwest? I’m starting to wonder. Anyway…recap.

Can’t say anything bad about my time away. I can’t say I was tempted to have a glass of wine when my friends did, but there was an allure. A certain glamour to their glasses of mellow yellow liquid. Of course urine can be mellow yellow so if I think of it that way it’s not alluring or glamorous, nope, not one damn bit. Jealous, of course, I’d be telling a lie if I said I wasn’t jealous of my normal drinking friends. One, two glasses at the most, I would have had an entire bottle. Lunch out was less expensive because I was ordering Virgin Mary’s. Our dinner bills were less, because I wasn’t ordering copious amounts of wine. I will probably always be jealous of those that can drink just one and not want/need more. I’m jealous of people who can sing better than I can (and I can’t sing worth a damn so that’s a whole lot of people) or dance, or knit, or those with firmer necks, or smoother skin, thinner thighs. The list could go on and on and on. You can’t always get what you want. But you can be happy with what you have and who you are now.
Now just to make all you people feeling the wrath of winter jealous too. No bitch slapping allowed. Here’s where I watched the sunrise while I was away. Right off the kitchen. Coffee and contemplation. I had 4 days with no responsibilities. Now that’s what I call vacation! Oh, almost forgot to tell you. I hit 7 months sober while I was away.
