Here Comes the Sun

Today is Saturday and by all measures, I should be feeling so happy. The sun is FINALLY shining. I’m finally starting to shed the 10 pounds that I put on since the new year. I woke up early to make it to my favorite specialty stores before they got busy.  I came home, put awayContinue reading “Here Comes the Sun”

So Many Blessings

I am so filled with gratitude after this weekend <3 <3 <3   I've been studying the law of attraction for the past few weeks and think that there is a lot of truth to it.  I believe that the vibrations you send out attract like vibrations that come right back to you.  
To top it off, I think I've started to experience the "Pink Cloud."   

Purdy Thirty

It’s 10:20 on a Friday night and it’s been an EXHAUSTING week, so imma make this short. Today is Day 30 🙂 🙂 🙂 I feel happy all over about this and I don’t have any desire to drink. Tonight Hubby asked me if I wanted to go on the Boy Scout camping trip nextContinue reading “Purdy Thirty”

Easter 2019

I’m going to make this quick because it’s already almost 11 am and I need to work on my final project for my class that I’ve been putting off ALL weekend.  I wanted to get up super early today to work on it, but couldn’t sleep till after 3am, therefore I slept in until 9.Continue reading “Easter 2019”

Day 21

It feels so good to keep the momentum going!  It’s been a tiring but great few weeks.  I’m not exactly riding the pink cloud, as they say, but I am enjoying NOT thinking about drinking every second of every day.  I barely even think of it at all.  Once in awhile the thought will runContinue reading “Day 21”

Magnificent Monday

A Monday without work is a magnificent Monday indeed! And, sadly, it’s going to come to an end pretty soon. That’s quite ok. Friday is Good Friday, so it’ll be a nice 3 day work week. This past weekend has been just excellent. Friday night was pretty lazy and I was out cold by 10:30pm.Continue reading “Magnificent Monday”

Hooray for Friday, Longest Week Ever

This has been an excruciating LONG week. Coming back from Spring Break is never a treat, especially since we started giving students the state assessment beginning the week after break. The state assessment is the devil. It does not seem to align much with the curriculum we are supposed to be teaching (thank you CommonContinue reading “Hooray for Friday, Longest Week Ever”

Cruise Control

It’s Thursday and Spring Break is cruising right along, a little too fast for my liking. It hasn’t been a super productful week, but I’m still sober so I’ve felt grateful every day. The weekend was pretty full. On Saturday, our friends came down from Bay City. My BFF, Debbie, brought a cake for myContinue reading “Cruise Control”

The Devil Inside

I’ve been thinking a lot about my thinking. I’ve been researching also and have read some really great books about our powerful mind– and that pesky voice– you know, the one I call Betsy. I’ve been noticing things that intrigue me, and wondering. Why am I so depressed when I’m not sober? Is it becauseContinue reading “The Devil Inside”
