Today was a low-mood day for some reason. Maybe a “hangover” from last night’s outing. I told my husband, the conversation at my end of the table swung from how much “we” love red wine to how lovely and important it is to have alone time with one’s mom. And there I sat, pissed that I couldn’t have any of the wine and yeah, by the way, dreading my own mom’s upcoming Thanksgiving visit. 😫 The only silver lining, I guess, is that my dear friend who knows I’m not drinking apparently has no qualms about drinking wine in front of me or going on and on about it either. 🙄 I guess I make this sober by choice thing look easy.
Anyway, it seems like a good time to get back on the gratitude train.
So, after looking around long enough and hard enough, I found a few rays of happiness shining through on this grey cloud of a day.
1. a made bed and a tiny bit of sunshine
2. a relaxing bath
3. one cheerful child who is thankfully quite forgiving of his mom’s edginess
4. Harry Potter
5. hope that tomorrow will be as figuratively sunny in my head as is literally predicted outside
Happy sober Monday,
