Happy Sunday! As I sit here this morning I was debating about blogging or not. Well we’ll see if this post gets published.
I am not in a terrible place but not a good one either. I am bored with myself. And I know it has to do with quitting drinking but I know it was the best decision to make and know this feeling of blah will pass. I know I want to be sober for many reasons and that I am an alcoholic even if I never got a drunk driving or had anything terrible happen. I obsess over my next drink and have to have one or two every day and this last drunk I had made friends with the bartender which to some may be a good thing but to me it opened my eyes.
He had been making my drinks really strong and this last time he came over and poured some extra in my glass and I couldn’t not drink it. I had to wait three hours before I could drive and knew I could never go back there as it would happen again and luckily that day I didn’t have to be anywhere so it worked out but now that he did that once (got me drunk) I know I can’t go there again as the same thing might happen. So I just disappeared from the bar and it’s been a week since the occurrence. I’m good at disappearing:)
As to the title of this blog I ponder about my need for self care. I can’t be places where there is a lot of noise or activity but also I don’t like it when I am alone and the silence is sometimes too much. Hoping my new therapist will help me to be able to balance between the two.
My husband’s best friend came for the weekend and yesterday it was too much with my husband making breakfast and his friend and my sons all in the kitchen with a huge mess from the day before. I went to the park and played my zen music and was able to feel better after an hour and came home and tackled the dishes and hung out with my kids. It was a good day but had its moments for sure.
Today the house is quiet but with much to do and not doing it yet but will soon. Music is playing while I blog and still in love with Jason Mraz. He has a concert coming up in October my birthday month when I will be turning 50 (more on that in a minute) but I might not go to the concert because he dresses up with his banana suit and sings all these deep songs but I can’t stand what he is wearing ha ha. So I will wait and see because the last concert I went to he was wearing it and still is in the Philippines so we shall see.
As to turning 50, I am pretty excited about it. That is a huge milestone. And although I might not be where I want to be right now I know what I like and what works for the most part but am looking forward to hearing what my zen therapist has to say about some areas of my life that need changing and the good part is that I know what they are just sort of stuck.
So we shall see with how she can help and as usual I will report back.
Hope you all are doing well. I pray for you all every night before sleep…
