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**”

That Virus and the Strangest Friday the 13th Ever

March 14, 2020 The last time I wrote was on Wednesday, March 11th and things were just starting to get crazy with the first cases of the Coronavirus found in Michigan. Thursday was a fairly normal day at school, minus the field trip and Mystery reader cancellations, on top of all of the after schoolContinue reading “That Virus and the Strangest Friday the 13th Ever”

Day 347: The Truths

I am SO excited to be coming up on a year with no alcohol!  I never thought this would be possible, I’ve dreamt about it, but certainly had my doubts. I’ve been compiling a list of truths.  It isn’t enough to read and understand them though, you must truly believe them to be true inContinue reading “Day 347: The Truths”

Day 333

Such a magical triple three’s day! The sun is shining brightly & I am looking forward to a visit to the nail salon and then a (hopefully warm) jog in the sun. I’ve been reflecting a lot and wondering where my happiness went. I put too much of it into other people. The actions ofContinue reading “Day 333”

Quitting Drinking- What a Wild Ride!

I’ve been reflecting a lot lately, I mean A LOT.  At the end of next month, I will be one whole year alcohol free!  Considering the 1st time I consciously stopped drinking as an adult (except for pregnancies) was February 2017, you could say this year long achievement has been 3 years in the making.Continue reading “Quitting Drinking- What a Wild Ride!”

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”

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”

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”
