I’ve Been in the House Too Long (Again)

It’s been 71 days since I last drank wine now, and things are going well on that front. I have been in the house too long again, though. First, it was the return of the wildfire smoke for a few days, then work, then some stuff that meant taking medication that made me sleep all day, then more work, and I’m getting out for a long walk in nature this morning no matter what! It’s going to be great. I’m drinking coffee now, planing it out in my head. 😊

Oh, and we have a visit scheduled today to see my mom in person for the first time since March! We had one scheduled about a month ago, and then they canceled it because a staff member tested positive and closed down the visits. But we are back on now!

There have been a few nights where I’ve really wanted to escape my feelings with booze, but I resisted. And I’m glad I did.

I’m going to go get more coffee now, roust the family up, and go climb a tall, tall hill to a beautiful spot overlooking the city. Should be lovely!

Much love and support to all of you today!

  1. Really hope you get to see your mum. Keep saying no to that booze and as Dwight said. … get outside and power on!
    I know that ‘inside too much’ feeling … I have it at the moment. A little bored and far too slouchy and lazy. I have planned to go on a long walk with my friend tomorrow morning. It is needed. Have a lovely day 😘 xx

  2. Hope you got to see your Mum.
    Enjoy the fresh air. Speaking of the hill, all I can hear in my head is Kate Bush and Running Up That Hill. Love that song. I won’t be running. More of a leisurely stroll around the hill. See you on the hill.

  3. Lovely post and I am so glad you got to see your mom! That tall hill walk sounds just wonderful!! Great job on resisting alcohol! It’s not easy and we have to remember to pat ourselves on the back for a job well done. 😃

  4. I think there’s something not right with my wordpress as I didnt get a notification of your blog and I love reading it. I hope the visit went well with your mum. I also can empathy with the feeling of being inside too long. You’re doing so well with your journey, it’s so lovely to read ♡
