Goal Diggin’

Thursday January 31, 2019 It’s been a long time since I wrote.  I’ll try to catch you up while getting to the point of things.. Florida- This was a fun, yet Toxic, trip that had me wondering what I did to piss off the Universe.  It started out kind of stressful where we flew outContinue reading “Goal Diggin’”

My Best Life

Getting up at 5:00am with the littlest to see the peak meteor showers. Cleaning out closets one by one while I’m off work- purging bag after bag of things I never use after being a married adult for 18 years. Walking 2 miles while my foot is still hurting– because walking on it ultimately helpsContinue reading “My Best Life”

Thursday Musings

Hello Thursday!  Four days left of vacation and I am soaking it all in (staycation). I woke up with a throbbing foot.  I’m not sure if it’s because I decreased my pred down from 10mg to 5mg per day a few days ago or that I drank alcohol for two nights in a row. IContinue reading “Thursday Musings”

Extraordinary

The first day of the new year always seems to feel fresh and exciting.  SO many promises and hopes, dreams, etc.  A new chapter, the beginning of something novel. I’ve been up since around 5am and it’s been so peaceful and serene around here. I’ve had lots of time to think and reflect. 2018: AContinue reading “Extraordinary”

Glorious 

The last thing I wanted to do today is get my butt outside & moving.   I’ve been (yet again) decreasing my pred, so I have decent levels of aches & pains today & my foot has been ok but now I have a stiff ankle problem that I’m trying to work out.  Plus I’mContinue reading “Glorious “

The Exhausting Addiction Cycle

I read a blog some time ago that has really been on my mind lately. It was about relapsing and going through the most difficult part of sobriety over and over and over again. I feel like this has been where I’m at since July (UGH, like a whole 1/2 year wasted.. makes me feelContinue reading “The Exhausting Addiction Cycle”

Namaste: Deep Breaths after the Holiday

I bow to you, you made it.. WE made it!!  PHEW!! Christmas for me, was actually really pretty nice (besides being overly tired from too little sleep the night before).  We leisurely spent the morning enjoying our gifts and cleaning up.  We walked to my in laws and had a delicious dinner (I can’t believeContinue reading “Namaste: Deep Breaths after the Holiday”

Merry Christmas

I’m feeling a mixed bag of emotions this morning.  I’m really upset with myself because I drank last night. We were celebrating at my dad’s and my sister was drinking wine (as usual).  We brought a bunch of La Croix and Bai drinks and while I considered but then talked myself out of drinking wine,Continue reading “Merry Christmas”

Christmas Eve Eve Morning

Day 15 today!  Feeling good about being sober, but the rest of me might be falling apart. I’m supposed to take my Humira every 7-10 days.  It’s been about 3 weeks since I took it.  I thought I had a Parvo Virus that mimicked RA and that I could not take it and not beContinue reading “Christmas Eve Eve Morning”

The Pain of Not Drinking

I know I said this before, but I am just not feeling it this Christmas season!  It’s days away and I’m barely prepared and don’t even care.  I’ve felt extra sad this week about my mom not being here.  She has been gone for over 4 years and I’ve been racking my brain trying toContinue reading “The Pain of Not Drinking”
