Thanks to Crying Out Now for posting “Frank the Tank is a Terrible Mother!”
When Ellie emailed me to say she was going to put that post up on her website, I realized how long it had been since I had blogged. I celebrated a year of sobriety in August and it has been a wild year. Lots of soul searching and working the 12 steps. My husband was laid off and re-hired. I’m working full-time and raising a healthy little 18-month-old. And I am pregnant again and am finally done battling first trimester yuck.
I am grateful every day for my sobriety. Even on the shitty days… but I have far less of those than I used to. I am getting used to showing up in my life and not evading every feeling with alcohol. Sobriety is making me a better mother, wife, employee, daughter, sister and friend. I feel like I’m getting to know myself for the first time in a long time. I’m way less afraid than I was a year ago when I started this blog.
Thank you to those who visit here. I plan to start writing again.
