Enjoying the Journey

Thanks for all your kind thoughts and words.  Anniversary was fun.  Won some money at the casino, which NEVER happens, but it finally did and it's a lot more fun when you do!  Weird how we can spend hours in the car together, have great conversations, and then evening comes, computer comes out, porn invades with beer, and a different person inhabits our home.  Sad on one level, but I feel so much better about life, alcoholism, etc. now than I did 5 years ago. 
It's been good news for kids, they had fun on their excursion, and LT starts his job this week!! WOOO HOOOO!!!  After 5 calls per half day - the kids are driving me crazy spending too much time together.  This should help!  I hope!   Now to get him a driver's permit.  Yikes.  Well, I guess we are bringing them up to be "adults", not children who never leave and don't have their own life....Okay, it's all good.
Finished the book, One Moment, One Morning (or the other way around?!).  It was fantastic, and so true about how one of the characters describes her involvement with her alcoholic BF.  Something you don't often find in books. 
Jack goes to the doctor today.  The blood tests they did included liver function.  I'm anxious to hear if he has anything to say about it. 
Lunch interview for a project, so I'd better hit it.  So glad to see some beautiful clouds this morning with sun shining through.  Reminds me that today is a new day.  New Mercies.  Fantastic.


  1. Winning at the casino is defintely better than losing! Glad you had a good anniversary.

    Those kids, they do grow up so fast!

  2. thanx so much for stopping by my blog, im having a give away so stop and leave a comment! i will try catch up on your blog tonight. my grandbabies daddy is an alcoholic... its been a hard 6 years and more to come im sure.. take care and enjoy your day!

  3. I think your description of your day gives a pretty good description too. Sometimes they can be that guy that you married. That guy that you fell in love with and all seems right with the world. And then that other guy shows up.
    However, you seem to be doing a good job of living your life regardless of which guy is around. That's very important. Put you first.

  4. You are the strongest woman!!! I know what it is like to live with those two different men--in the same body--I lived it for 20 years and then--I couldn't! Glad you had a good anniversary--there are good times in there--once in awhile!
