2020 is Epic

As far as this pandemic goes, things appear to be looking up. We are so lucky (so far). We had a couple of make-shift overflow hospitals constructed and I don’t even think they had to be used. I haven’t lost anyone that I personally know to COVID, yet. My little family has stayed home andContinue reading “2020 is Epic”

Sadness

Today it feels like day 300 of quarantine.  It feels like a million years since we’ve been in school, yet it seems like yesterday.  Today I am filled with sadness, oddly accompanied by higher vibes than a sad day would normally bring me.  I don’t know why this is, perhaps I am accepting the changesContinue reading “Sadness”

Day 400, Gratitude & Regrets

When I first stopped drinking, I had some big regrets for a long time. One of the biggest one was feeling like I failed my youngest. I was a normal drinker when my oldest was young, but was in the midst of alcoholism during the time I had my youngest (did not drink while pregnant,Continue reading “Day 400, Gratitude & Regrets”

The Death of Should

Many of my teacher friends are embracing this idea of online education. They have cute home offices, perfect camera set ups for lessons, etc. I’m not feeling it at all, we SHOULD be at school! I’m feeling annoyed and sad, which I tend to do when things don’t turn out the way they SHOULD. IContinue reading “The Death of Should”

The Opportunistic Alcoholic Voice

Thursday April 2 was a great day for the most part.  This was the day (from my previous post) that I had a spiritual walk and a blissful day. I was cleaning up the kitchen with my nephew and instructed him to clean the stove.  I was seasoning an iron pan and had just turnedContinue reading “The Opportunistic Alcoholic Voice”

Be the Light

4/5/20 This past week has been a powerful week for me, personally.  At the beginning, I was just climbing out of the funk I was in for two weeks after life changed completely.  It wasn’t an awful funk, I was able to maintain my workouts and be pretty productive, but couldn’t shake the feeling ofContinue reading “Be the Light”

Psychics

Psychics– do you love them or hate them?  Hubs calls them a “gimmick.”  “They just play off you, and take advantage of you.” he always says. In January 2019 I attended “Supper with the Spirits” with a few others.  This was a meal in a room with about 100 people or so.  The local psychic,Continue reading “Psychics”

One Year Alcohol Free and an Important Lesson

March 28. 2020 Last year this day was rotten.  It was my last Day 1.  I won’t bore you with the details again, but it was pretty awful. I had big plans for this day!  For one thing, the title of this blog was going to be “The End.”  I had planned on ending thisContinue reading “One Year Alcohol Free and an Important Lesson”

Day 362

Hey there, do you see all this nonsense?  Life is crazy today, can’t you see? Everyone is just trying to act normal, yet no one seems to know what that means during these times. I’m stuck at home with the ones I love, trying hard not to ring their neck.  I’m not used to beingContinue reading “Day 362”

I’m Starting to Lose my SH**

Monday March 16, 2020 You know on the bachelor and bachelorette when certain contestants clearly begin to lose it?  It’s hard to relate, what did they expect anyway?  They knew what they were getting into, right?  I mean, they don’t have phones or tv, but they are at a beautiful mansion with unlimited access toContinue reading “I’m Starting to Lose my SH**”
