Goals

2018 was really a good year. I got outside my comfort zone and took two classes- sewing and pottery, which helped revamp my creativity. I have another pottery class starting in a couple weeks and I'm still sewing. My goal this year is to keep up with the creative outlets and push to make healthier…

Twas the day after Christmas

The chaos is over and we survived. It was a good Christmas. My mom and step dad stayed with us for 4 days and we hosted for Christmas. It was a bit stressful and I'm not sure they had the best time. They didn't rent a car so came with us to my in-laws on…

Christmas Blues

I'm not feeling very merry, super stressed and overwhelmed. I was so ahead of the game in early November with the majority of gifts done but chaos ensued this week with running around getting gifts for all my co workers. I honestly feel it's pointless. Do they need more slippers, body lotion, chocolates, coffee or…

On the edge

Another rough day here, feel like I'm so close to the edge. I'm already very stressed and more little things keep piling. I had a meltdown at dinner tonight wanted to throw pans then storm out and buy alcohol. I don't get this stressed to often but I feel like I'm stuck in a shit…

Stress and not drinking

If I was still drinking I'd be well on my way to annihilation right now. What a whopper of a week. I still don't have a great way of dealing with stress and anxiety. I must admit the thought of getting drunk right now is very pleasant. I just want to escape all this adrenalin…

First days of summer

It's my favorite time of year. I love the warmth and extra daylight hours. It's pretty homeostasis is my world. We had a great vacation to Disney in May and have a mini vacay planned before labor day. My daughter's done at school and in camp. The days slip by so fast, I have to…

Counting down the days…

Tomorrow will be one month til a real vacation. I am counting down the days. A weird wave of sickness is going through the house right now. I've been nauseous and had a pounding headache and pressure all week. I took a sick day Monday. Today I got the call just as I pulled into…

Snow storm

We're getting a crap load of snow again, third time in two weeks. Oh I am so ready for vacation in 2 months. Tonight/ tomorrow could dump about 18 inches of snow. I am hoping we do not lose power. We lost it for four days and then two days later another half day. I…

Day 730

730 days= two years since I stopped drinking. I can't believe it's been this long. I am proud of myself. Hubby has gone the same amount of time. He doesn't have any problems with drinking but stopped to support me. In other news we were hit with a nor'easter. No snow but tons of rain…
