Scattered Post… Update, AA, My Story, Friendship, and Plans

I used to blog every day and now every time I sit at my computer to blog the words don’t come.  I have so much on my mind, and I just don’t know how to get it out these days. … Continue reading

Scattered Update… An Alcoholic is Always an Alcoholic

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged.  Truth is, I have been struggling (still). I don’t know if it’s my thyroid (I just started meds for it) or the hydroxyzine that my psychiatrist put me on, but I’m just sleeping … Continue reading

Happy Monday!


My day started at 5:15.  I love waking up early these days.  I got up, made coffee, woke up the boys, helped them get ready, did my Bible study, planned my day, ate breakfast, and did dishes all before 8:30.

I hung some stuff up in the school room.  I found a map and decided to hang a frame to make less white space.  It feels more cozy now.

We did school (mostly independent but I worked with her on some things such as writing, grammar, and spelling).

 

I did my AA step work for the day and read handouts and listened to audios from my dietitian.

Next up is online AA.

Lots of hard work and self care!

What is your plan for this beautiful Monday?  How will you take good care of yourself?

Happy Monday!

happy-monday-beautiful-day

When I was working, I would dread Mondays.  Working brought me terrible panic attacks and anxiety.  I would feel anxiety every single day.  All day.  I felt like a terrible teacher because of it.

Now I feel excited about a new week.  Every day is peaceful.  I go to town once a week now (well two if you count church).

Mondays are the day that I go to town.  Today I will have coffee with my sponsor, go to women’s AA Big Book meeting, then do EMDR with my counselor.  I will be picking the kids up from my dad (they spent the weekend there).  Robert is out of town till Thursday so we will keep things simple.  Tonight we will have leftovers for dinner.

I will share how EMDR went tomorrow.

My self care is all of the above as well as taking my meds and supplements and eating all meals.

What are your plans for the day?  How will you take good care of yourself?
