And the award for the most boring post title in blogging history goes to Mrs D!!!!!!!
Not so tired any more. Yawn. The post title itself is enough to make someone tired and bored.
Actually truth be known my life is very boring. Or if not boring then extremely ordinary.
I get up when the dog barks and put him outside. I shower. I fix my kids breakfast and pack their lunch boxes. I feed the dog. I negotiate between my sons and the dog not to all wind each other up too much and try to stop them breaking things/making a huge mess (all the while trying to be mindful that they are young boys/puppies and breaking things and making a mess is in their DNA). I put washing on. I badger my sons to make their beds & brush their teeth & pack their bags.
I get the boys off to school and then I spend the day until 3pm writing blog posts/interacting with brave and amazing sober people on Living Sober or via email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc/grocery shopping/meeting friends/walking the puppy/going to work meetings/doing household chores/paying bills & doing banking//filling in forms and replying to emails for kid things like cubs & swimming lessons & drama lessons & school trips & rugby games etc/lying on the sofa watching daytime TV/cooking & baking/folding washing...etc etc...
Then at 3pm I get the kids from school/bring them home/feed them/do homework/badger my boys to empty the dishwasher & wash their lunchboxes/play games/drive to rugby practice & swimming lessons & cubs & drama & soccer etc/cook dinner/tidy up from dinner/do more interacting online with brave and amazing sober people/write blog posts/tidy up/get the kids to bed/watch TV/go to bed.
(Obviously the weekends are a bit different but you get the gist).
Things I wish I did more of:
Plucking my eyebrows
Painting my nails
Drinking and eating perfectly healthy whole foods
Things I wish I did less of:
Eating sugary/fatty foods
Checking my online sites
Worrying about the things that I should be doing more of...
The good news is I am feeling a bit better on the tiredness front, am trying to work my mindfulness techniques to keep myself in the moment and feeling calm. And today I had my hair done for the first time in months and it is short!
And because this is a sobriety blog I should end by saying I AM SOBER AND FOR THAT REASON I AM BRAVE AND AMAZING AND ANY PERSON THAT KICKS A DYSFUNCTIONAL DRINKING HABIT TO THE CURB IS SPECTACULAR AND DESERVES A MEDAL!
Love, Mrs D xxx
