Sometimes I’m reminded how grateful I am to not be a drinker anymore. Today was one of those days. It’s Monday, and I have the day off thanks to Presidents Day. We watched a movie later than planned, then snacked on cheese and chatted with the boys for a bit and didn’t get to bed until almost 1:00am. Once asleep, I slept well but woke up super groggy. I didn’t drink a smoothie yesterday, so I made one instead of coffee, hoping it would help my energy. It did not. I took a shower, and then napped, then had lunch (leftovers from a Mexican restaurant- very processed/unhealthy), then napped again ..read more

My Dream Home

Write about your dream home. My dream home is a paradise. In the spring & summer, the colors are vivid and the energy is contagious. In autumn, things get darker .. and then finally a “still” white- where rest and reset is top priority and, the long dark days allow ample time to think & reflect. My dream home connects with loved ones daily, both here & in the afterlife. My dream home gives me solace, after a long hard day spent out in the world. During chaotic times, I turn to my dream home for quiet & comfort. During happy times, I decorate my dream home in the most elaborat ..read more

February 3, 2024 Day #34 of no weed. It was a good crutch for awhile, but now I know that I’ll never go back. All my most precious jewels are made of paper, not metal. You see, my hubby has this habit of making me a ring, out of straw wrappers every time we go out to eat. He’s done this for years, but it wasn’t until recently that I began to really appreciate it. It started with my nephew- the one who lived with us from about age 16-18. We’d often go out to eat, but I didn’t realize anyone was paying attention. He’s been seeing his girlfriend for a couple of years now. A couple months ago, I l ..read more

Happy Saturday! It’s day 20, hooray! I’m so glad I made that decision on January 1st to break a dumb habit that I knew wasn’t serving me. When I was young, we used to go stay at my grandparents’ little cabin up in Luzern, MI- a quiet town that had one stop light with one bar/restaurant, post office and hardware store. One time we had a relative that I never met come and visit us. I don’t remember her name, believe she was my dad’s cousin and think that she lived in the Philippines- although I might be getting her mixed up with another family member. The only thing I really remember about her ..read more

It’s a wonderful Sunday, because I don’t have to work tomorrow Today marks two weeks of no pot. Actually, I’m loving it! I feel smarter- and more confident. And I treated myself to a ridiculously expensive sweat outfit (Aviator Nation- I love the feel & quality of this brand). I’ve been eying it since before Christmas and splurged because I’m doing great with this and haven’t been and won’t go to the dispensary. I’ve been thinking about the space I’m making by purging this, along with all the pesky thoughts about quitting and/or feeling guilty about it. Space that’s now open for wonderful ..read more

Today marks day 11 of no weed! So far, it’s been easy I think it was mainly a habit. It didn’t alter my mind much at all (I built a high tolerance), but sure made me hungry and lazy! The first night I thought a little bit about it, not so much the 2nd night & by the third night I was like, “eh, pot, what’s that again?” I don’t want to downplay it. It feels good to be free of it. People say it’s harmless and non addicting, but I disagree with both those statements. Also, the last time I quit, it was for about 30 days. I didn’t notice any difference except for some crabbiness so I started u ..read more

It’s been said that all emotions come from love or fear. Early in my sobriety, I went to AA meetings and tried working the steps numerous times. I always got hung up on step 4. I couldn’t remember what I ate for lunch yesterday, how the heck was I supposed to remember everyone who had done me wrong throughout my life? Triggers. As it turns out, I didn’t have to remember anything. I just had to pay attention to my emotions. Why did I find myself stuffing my face mindlessly hours after a family party? Why did a simple conversation with a friend end with me feeling angry and mistreated? Triggers ..read more

It’s a cold, drizzly Wednesday evening here. It’s been a good week- a relaxing one. I haven’t gotten much done, but hopefully will be more productive the next few days. If not, I’m okay with it. Today I couldn’t do much- I was just not well. I should have known I was off because when I get up in the morning, the first thing I do is feed the pets, let them out, etc. Not today. I got up and was super cold. When I walked into the living room the fire was going (it’s on a thermostat). Instead of going to the kitchen, I plopped in front of the fire. Then I moved to the couch and watched some TV bef ..read more

It’s a damp and cold Sunday morning, with the surprise of waking up to a dusting of snow. Yuck. It’s still falling– I wonder how much we’re going to get today. So far, this winter has been very kind to us here in Michigan. We’ve barely gotten any snow and the temperatures have been overall mild. It’s hard to believe that Christmas was already like a week ago! It came and left so fast, if not for the family parties, I wouldn’t have hardly noticed it. I’ve spent the week trying to relish every second. I’ve hardly got anything done around the house, except for an enormous amount of sitting. I’ve ..read more

It’s two days after Christmas and I’m grateful it’s over. The family parties were tough at times, but I managed to stay sane. Often, I’d blow up when we get home, from stress. Or I’d complain to hubby about his mom venting to me. This time, he’s the one that complained. Normally, it’d make me angry to hear that my mean sister had talked smack about my hubby during my family’s party. I didn’t even care to hear what she had to say. And I was left wondering how I could allow crazy/insecure people to get under my skin in past years. I knew it has nothing to do with me– it never did. But I guess I ..read more
