Hey Gang! Hope all is well. I’ve had some inquiries lately about how I’m doing and where I am. Thanks everyone for thinking of me. Less than a week ago I would have said I’m absofuckinglutely amazing, and I am but I not.
We had a real tragedy here on Saturday. My stepmom was up early getting ready to go to the airport to return home after a wonderful Thanksgiving week visit. She spent lots of time with her great-grandchildren and truly enjoyed herself. I can hold that in my heart. Saturday morning she somehow slipped, tumbled down to the landing of my stairs, hit her head and never regained consciousness. She died Sunday morning. So sad. So I’m on this roller coaster of emotion right now. Sick at heart but also joyful knowing she’s dancing to Frank Sinatra with my dad right now. Wish I could turn back time, can’t, so onward we go.
I did not drink, didn’t even think about it through all that trauma. Couldn’t eat either but I always see lack of appetite as a perk!
I was also extremely distraught over the election and it just keeps getting more and more like a circus. But I can’t change that either, sooooo. On to Christmas. Determined to have a bright and cheerful one for all those littles I have running around.
Eternally grateful for all my blessings, life is short and can be gone in a wink. Don’t cloud your head with alcohol shame and regrets. Fill it with love and hugs, smiles and kisses.
Happy Sober Holidays to all. I’m still here and I’m still sober and still a little crazy. Tra la la la la, la la la la.
