Last year on this long weekend I was in the middle of a relapse. I had a last hurrah weekend at the cottage & vaguely remembering day drinking before having to pack up & go home (I was not driving).
Betsy has been whispering in my ear, but I’ve been able to squash her stupid A$$ conniving thoughts. Happy to say that I’m going to bed sober. It is an important night, it is the first day of school for students tomorrow— a big day for many.
The whole weekend was low key but fabulous. We spent a lot of time in the pool & with each other. Hubby & oldest had a scout outing on Saturday, so my youngest & I had a date night & then got some school supply shopping done.
On Sunday hubby & I had a date day. We found a Segway tour rental nearby & was super excited to go, but it ended up being closed for the holiday weekend. So we went to Walmart (I had to get clothes pins & spray paint for a school project— plus WHO wouldn’t want to spend time on a date at the Walmart?? 🤷🏼♀️) and then to a Japanese restaurant that had delicious sushi.
Today I rode my bike for the first time in about a month. We rode over 10 Miles in the hot sun. It was pure bliss. This is what drinking takes from me, this & so much more! We came home, swam, ate subs outside for lunch and then worked around the house & got the kids ready for tomorrow. It was the perfect day really.
I learned a valuable lesson from my last relapse. It is much easier to stay sober than to become sober. This last time I found it nearly impossible to stop. I would get 2 days & then drink over & over again.
Today is day 6. I am so grateful to be sober. I will remain grateful for every sober day <3
