Documenting What I Want To Forget

Ok I did commit to documenting my last drinking days, even though I’d rather erase it from memory, so I could look back and remember what a trap I was in.

Wed. night did not really want or need to drink but finished off the bourbon (3 shots?) plus a couple beers. Felt like shit Thurs. (see yesterday’s post) and told myself all day I would not drink but was so sick of myself and my headache by evening I had 3 (7%) beers and stuffed my face with cheetos which I would never do sober.

Friday morning I am feeling ok and really truly will not drink tonight. Tomorrow is our weekend day with all the kids and I want to feel good for it. And start August off healthy (yes I am always extra inspired by the turning of the calendar page even though it’s kinda silly).

Now let’s focus on some more positive things for the day:

-I have a rather peaceful day with only one child for the morning.

-It is gorgeous and I will get to spend some time outside.

-Distance picnic with my grandma, mom, sis, and aunt this evening.

Wow it really does help to take time to be grateful for the small things. I also wrote a couple reviews on Good Reads this morning, which I have been meaning to do forever, and the library finally opened so I can return some books and get some new ones.

Here are some of my five star reviews: Born a Crime, Stronger Than Death: How Annalena Tonelli Defied Terror and Tuberculosis in the Horn of Africa, Grandma Gatewood’s Walk: The Inspiring Story of the Woman Who Saved the Appalachian Trail, It’s Ok To laugh (Crying Is Cool Too), A Series of Catastrophes and Miracles: A True Story of Love, Science, and Cancer.

What are you reading or looking forward to today?

  1. Awesome Veg Mama ! I also love the new calander month or new week! It is a chance to start again. In the long run it doesn’t matter that you have blow outs.. it only matters that you start again, even if you start again a million times. That just means you are doing what you set to achieve without even noticing!
    I am currently reading The bee and the Orange tree, fiction – lovely light read. And Brave New Girl which is self help – It is an awesome read however I can only go one chapter at a time as self help is alot to process. Oh and have Laura Clerey’s audio book Idiot going when I cook or am poking about – very relatable as she is a reformed addict and a comedian so fun too. Loving them all.
