Happy Thanksgiving to my gluttonous fellow Americans and Happy PreChristmas season to my friends abroad. I’m having a particularly irreverent, sarcastic day so what better time to sign off. Fuck yes.
I hardly ever post anymore so it seems fitting to sail away with the end of the coming year. It’s been A good year and I’ve been blessed, however, I’m still terribly embarrassed and full of despair for my country as it slips into total disrespect and fear of those that aren’t white, male and have a warped idea of what Christianity is. I have 5 grandchildren that I pray for everyday , what kind of world will they encounter as they grow. It’s wrong to sexually abuse or be a child molester but as long as it happened a long time ago then fuck it, I can be President or hold a senate seat. What the hell is wrong with people? Maybe I’m just an old lady but I don’t understand why getting the votes for policies is more important than doing the right thing. Oh man am I in a bitch mood today. The news makes me feel like I could explode so I leave the room.
So, it’s been a year since my step-mother died on our stairs so it’s a hard time of remembrance but I’m also grateful to have had her in our lives. She really made my dad happy and was the only grandmother my children knew so, Ruby, we love you.
Speaking of grandchildren, our baby turned 1and they’re all fabulous.
No drinking here, have found a new punch recipe to try for the holidays. I’m looking toward my 5 year soberversery. Has to be something outstanding and expensive, because I am so worth it. Doesn’t occur until July so I’ve got lots of time to come up with an outstanding gift idea.
Sorry I’m going out on such a sour, sassy note but that’s how this all started 4 1/2years ago. Don’t drink no matter what, don’t even think about moderating it doesn’t work. Listen and read what Belle says. Read every sober blog that relates to you. I still do, daily. Never ever want another Day 1 or week 1 or Month 1 it’s too f…ing HARD!!!
To all my wonderful, amazing, sober cyber friends who have become family; I love, love, love you all. You helped me get and remain sober and I am forever indebted to you all. I know how to get in touch with most of you but here’s my email for some I haven’t spoken with directly. I hope we can continue to talk. firstname.lastname@example.org.
To the two lovely women I’ve Skyped with I hope that can continue occasionally.
I’ll continue to comment on blogs but I’m not going to post again, at least until some big orange Cheeto that’s pretending to lead us resigns or is impeached. Then I’d use this forum to shout hooray! (Tweet that you fuckwad)
Ta Ta for now my darlings, it’s been real.
What’d you think, too harsh? Too bad, I’m 66 now, I’ll say whatever I feel. Spent most of my life behaving like a mouse. Not anymore. 💋💋💋
