Merry B Sober 2 Months +

  • Finishing construction on a new home.
  • Traveling and leaving some of my teens behind. (Insert Mom Guilt) 4 out of 5 weekends in March.
  • Entertaining out of town houseguests between these travel weekends.
  • Reunion of my Father’s buddies for March Madness for the first time since his death.
  • Participating in Therapy for my relationships.
  • Not eating as well and being exposed to lots of restaurant/bar opportunities to accept a drink.
  • Looking ahead to graduation celebrations and other social gatherings.

These are just a few reasons why I could have justified drinking.

I choose to live AF.

As I pack for another trip, to a place with great food and wine pairings… I am reminding myself that THIS is my journey. ¬†This is my choice.

I do not drink.

I Do Not Drink Pinot

For a few moments I sorta forgot I wasn’t drinking anymore. ¬†After a long day, we walked into a hotel room and the concierge left a bottle of Pinot Noir from Cambria to welcome our visit.

For a fleeting moment, I could imagine how great it was going to be to celebrate our weekend….WWWWHHHHHHAAAAAATTTTTTT… WTF… I don’t drink…..anymore.

So here I am…announcing to all of you…that I am not drinking today.

Off to dinner and a bottle of sparkling water with lemon.
