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”

That Virus

The Coronavirus and I have a long history.  Oh wait, it’s the Parvovirus, another k9 disease that I have a long history with.   I’ve had two different types of doctors tell me, 5 years apart, that I have the Parvovirus and that it is causing me arthritic symptoms.  That’s a story for another time. ToContinue reading “That Virus”

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”

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!”

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”

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”
