Grateful for Day 321

I’m grateful to be home. I’m so grateful that I have next Monday and Tuesday off for mid winter break! Thought it was the following week, but I’ll take it! I’m grateful that it’s almost mid February. At the same time I can’t even believe that we are heading into spring. The years truly flyContinue reading “Grateful for Day 321”

Day 319

Kudos to anyone who has done a vacation with drinking family members. I’m in Florida staying at my sister’s house with our dad, sister & cousin. One of my dad’s favorite places is called The Monkey Bar & he was so excited to take us there. My Florida sister asked me a couple weeks agoContinue reading “Day 319”

Hard Things

Day #313 I’ve spent a good part of the past couple months far from the pink cloud.  Small joys come and go, but the big undertone is scared, sad and feeling like I’m ready to burst at the seams. On a superficial level, it is a little bit due to the weather and it beingContinue reading “Hard Things”

Seasons End

Summer nights and long warm days  Are stolen as the old moon falls  And My mirror shows another face  Another place to hide it all  Another place to hide it all  And I’m lost, behind  The words I’ll never find  And I’m left behind  As seasons roll on by  Sleeping with a full moon blanket Continue reading “Seasons End”

Almost 300 Days

Today is day 298 alcohol free.  Do you know what sucks most about abusing and then abstaining from that wicked poison?  It is so easy to forget how deceitful it is.  Already, I’m humoring the thoughts of drinking after that year mark.  But WHY? I KNOW, 100% for sure, where it’ll lead me.  It’s notContinue reading “Almost 300 Days”

Day #291

Yesterday was absolutely craptastic. It started at 6 am and was nonstop until about 7pm. Frustration #1 was the Saturday forecast. I wouldn’t normally stress on the weekend but I had a work training & could possibly have loads of ice to drive home on. My 30 minute commute could be exponentially longer, terrifying &Continue reading “Day #291”

Out of Alignment

I haven’t felt aligned with the Universe for a very long time (well, since early fall or late summer).  I really don’t know if it was a very gradual shift, or if it was sudden and I just didn’t notice.  I’ve been at odds with people and situations in my life and it has beenContinue reading “Out of Alignment”

Stuff It

This holiday season I’ve had a gigantic aversion to stuff.  It may have started this fall when I was so busy with classes, plus we adopted a 3rd kid and all of his stuff, and our basement is still in disarray from the flood and then not finishing the bedroom down there yet.. my entireContinue reading “Stuff It”
