Today was about watching the Richmond tiger’s win the flag. We Victorians like to keep the flag here in Victoria. Letting it out of the state is not really an option. This team is my second favorite after my beloved Geelong.
Sports don’t always interest me, specially when its on tv. I would much perfer to watch it live.
We had family and friends here at our retreat watching. Enjoying ourselves. It was nice to talk and to laugh with others.
For a lot of people in recovery these type of occasions can be terrifying, especially when there is alcohol involved, but for me i have got to the point in my recovery from my addiction that i do not care about it any more. Twenty fours years have given me a lot of practice.
Giving up drinking when i was just 20 years old, i had two choices. Never go out again or learn to function in society and learn not to pick up. I did not want to just stay home and become non existent. So i learnt to take out a card that read ” A bottle of coke please!” So that i wouldnt be accidentally be given a rum and coke or bourbon and coke which did happen a few times.
Life always throws up challenges, and i have faced most head on. When it came to my Procrastination, i had my head in the sand like an ostrich.
I am pulling my head out and looking around again.
Tomorrow is Sunday again and we head home, back to our real life. The only difference being that tomorrow my mother, sister and nephew are coming to visit.
My mum is making my wedding dress, and she is coming to help me pick out the dress materials so that my dream dress can start to be made.
For now i am going to continue sitting next to the fire with my fur babies and the hubby to be. Enjoying the end of my Saturday night, listening to tunes and staring at the stars.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far.
