With Christmas approaching, I’m finally starting to get in the spirits. I know it’s in two days, but it’s always taken me time to “Get on Board.” as they say.
These last few weeks have been good. I find that my mind does not obsess about drinking all day. I’m not exactly sure when that stopped but I noticed it last week. It could just be routine. I get up, get the kids ready, go to work, and pick them up, make dinner, showers, and then homework and by then its 9 pm and time for bed. Routine I have found has been my saving grace.
I DO NOT LIKE CHANGE. I need to know the plan for my week.
This weekend my father made a comment, he told me that I’m actually pretty normal. Normal? Ha!
If you knew me you would now how far off this seems to whom I’ve been the past 30 plus years. I guess what he was trying to say is normal, for me. I took it as a compliment. I have been called many things in my life by family and friends and normal has NEVER been one of them.
This year I am just thankful to be “normal” and enjoy the holiday with my family and children. My stress level has been the lowest in the last few years and I can start dreaming about what the future may hold for me, it’s quite a lovely feeling.
