I'm feeling a bit meh.
It's week two of the school holidays and Mr D is out of town for work. Me and my 3 boys are all getting sick of one another. It's raining.
Just made a doctors appointment for the morning to check if my iron is low.
I put my onesie on at 1.30pm today. Instantly felt a bit better…
I bought the boys their own onesies and they've been rocking them all afternoon too. That was fun.
Listened to an amazing talk by the always awesome Tara Brach this afternoon while the boys wrestled each other in the other room.
Took the cap off the bottle of white wine in the fridge and smelled it. That was weird. More out of boredom than anything else (a little bit naughty? It was just a sniff).
Waves of life.. up and down… marvelous and meh … brilliant and boring … stimulating and frustrating …
Reading Ann Dowsett Johnston and getting angry at the alcohol industry for targeting us women and selling us bullshit about how alcohol is going to make our lives better.
Reading other sober bloggers.. brave amazing people who have taken away the booze and are dealing with heavy stuff head on. It's inspiring and humbling to be privy to their journeys. Thank you all of you. Check out Thirsty Still, Sober at Home, Sober Learning .. and please do let me know if you're not on my Blog List so I can follow you too…
Reading emails from people who want to connect .. people who are trying to get sober but friends and family are giving them major shit (any advice for that scenario?).. high achieving people who are secretly desperate about their heavy drinking habits .. people on Day 2, Day 5, Day 8 … lovely people reaching out. I do so love the sober sphere on the internet. It's just like my onesie.. when I climb into it I feel better.
We are not alone.
Love, Mrs D xxx
