Welcome Jack!

Hello WordPressland! I am so super duper excited to share that tonight we welcomed a new edition into our family. (Seriously, I am beaming with joy!) Welcome Jack- our new cat who we rescued. After a couple of months searching for our cat match, we found him. Jack is a two year old sleek, black…

Update and Halloween 2020

Hey Everyone! Just wanted to say hello and check in since the end of Sober October. Hello!! Excitedly, I broke sobriety on Saturday night with the best zombie sangria that I ever have made. Like I mentioned, we had our closest friends over for a tiny Halloween get together after the kids went trick o’treating….

Sober October Journal- LAST DAY??

Welp. I think my calculations were off because this is day 33. I swear I counted 35! Eh I guess it doesn’t really matter cuz it’s ovahhhhh! I did it! I have reflected on the past month, a lot. Especially over these past few days where life challenged my stress levels. This has been my…

Sober October Journal- Day 31

Well. It is stormy and I am sitting in my living room in a pretty somber mood. Figured I’d write because I just feel so..blah. Just got back from a funeral with my husband, my good friend’s father (in-law) passed away this week. It was a fairly sudden passing; he was diagnosed with cancer and…

Sober October Journal- day 28

Hello everyone! We are ever creeping to the finish line. Yee! I am just sitting down from my lunchtime yoga session. I saw the yogi I follow on YouTube Adriene, had a fun Halloween themed class that she posted yesterday so I went with it; which Halloween seems to be the running theme all week…

Sober October Journal- day 27

Hello WordPress friends! Wooo! We are so close to the end, canya feel it!? Actually, I have had a lot of fun writing during this challenge as often as I have, keeping accountable, so thinking that after Saturday this all goes bye bye is sad. 🙁 I know, it isn’t like I can’t keep journaling…

Sober October Journal- day 24

Well, if there was a day to have a drink to shake off stress, it would be this one. I got woken up this morning by a phone call. It was from my eldest sister in Italy. She was calling to tell me that my dad was being rushed to the hospital with chest pains….

Sober October Journal- days 22 and 23

Hey everyone! Day 22 was a surprisingly quiet day at work so I got a lot of my own personal stuff done like VOTE!! 🇺🇸 Woo! I drove by the polling location on Saturday but the line was so long that I couldn’t chance it with the time I had left in the morning. So…

Sober October Journal- day 21

Hello guys! It is day 21, Sunday, and I am feeling great! Going strong still not drinking, continuing being active and conscious portion control when eating. I have seen and felt many changes in myself. I feel that inner peppiness again, which is nice. My face and skin look so healthy and my body is…

Sober October Journal- day 19

Hey everyone! Nineteen days! Woo! I am getting closer to the Sober October finish line. If you are just jumping on board, I started the challenge earlier than October 1st. It just felt better in my mind to start the challenge on a Monday (9/28) versus that Thursday the 1st. Obviously I am neurotic. 🤦🏻‍♀️…
