That’s it for the weekend! The ending to a great week.
It might have started off as a fairly ordinary week in my new sober life, but it has culminated into something else. What that something else is I am not sure yet. It will probably take some time to figure that out. But I know that I feel great and I expect greatness from myself.
Monday and Tuesday are my days off. Tomorrow I will leave the lake and head back to my apartment, and my high speed internet 🙂 That means I can spend some time working on new project ideas and exploring some of the blogs in the sober blogosphere.
Tuesday will be day 50 of abstinence from alcohol. I’m stoked about this. This is much longer than I have ever been able to go before. It just feels like I’m going to keep on going. Heck, the plan is to go the rest of my life. I have removed alcohol from the picture and have no intention to ever include it back in.
Besides the usual stuff on my days off I’m thinking maybe I should do something special to celebrate day 50. Not sure what yet. My first thought is to go for a drive. There is a town a few hours north of where I live that I have been meaning to check out. It’s supposed to be pretty cool. I’ll have to mull this one over. Not sure what I will do yet.
With the approach of day 50 and my burgeoning good mood it feels like I’m in new beginning type territory. I would like to think that July 23rd was the first day of the rest of my life. (I call July 23rd S-Day). Now it seems that life is knocking on the door and ready for some excitement, fun and some good old fashioned work as well.
Hello life! Nice to meet you! I apologize for keeping you hidden behind that veil of alcohol for so long. Let me make it up to you. Here, have a cool glass of iced tea. I suggest you take a deep breath… A very deep breath… Good. That is a beginning.
