Late Sunday night

It’s way later than I would normally be up on a Sunday night. I’ve had an eventful day.

Worked until 12:30pm and then had my parents over at 2pm. My husband cooked them dinner ( first time ever ) and I cleaned house and cleaned before dinner and after. I really appreciated him cooking dinner. He has just started to cook recipes from a website he found and is doing great!

My parents are a bit of a trigger for drinking. I won’t go into the details ( I do love them so ) and I had to really breathe a few times however, I never once wanted to drink.

I enjoyed my sober time with them. They are 78 & 80 years old. This is important. My dad said how proud he is of me for working out and I knew he also meant my severe reduction in alcohol. His hug and smile will keep me moving forward.

They left about 8:30pm, it’s 11pm and I’m finally done with my “down time.” ( I had kitchen clean up and such ) My girls were chatting with me and I was so tired but they are only home for a week from college until the summer. I’ll take all I can get.

Heading to bed feeling good, accomplished, my heart is full and grateful. Will wake up tomorrow a bit tired but I would not trade it for the world.

I’m so glad for today.

❤️ Jackie
