Holidays - They are here

Wow, it has been a long time since I've posted. I really need to be more regular. I have lots I want to say, but it is hard when there are always people around. The Thanksgiving holiday ended up being pleasant - included all the kids, and I am indeed thankful for that. As usual, the weekend conclusion brought back the alcoholic reality. Thanks be to God, that I am not reacting in the same ways this time. I think I have finally realized what detachment looks like. I don't want anything bad to happen to AH, but I am not going to be sucked in to the crazymaking behavior if I can help it at all. We have a home, health, great kids, and I am not going to let his drinking ruin those things as long as I can help it. Thank you to Al-Anon and to for the wisdom and help to find sanity in the midst of insane behavior. There is no way that people who have never lived in this situation can understand. I'm so thankful for understanding. And for prayers. May you all have a great Monday. May we all have a peace that passes all understanding today.
