Has it really been 11 days since I last blogged? Talk about not keeping new years resolutions! LOL.
I’m at my clients ATM and upstairs my boss is in a meeting that could change the course of both our professional lives.. it’s hush, hush, so keep it between us please 😉
If it all comes together there’ll be a number of firsts I’ll have to deal with in the very near future, and that’s ok because I’m sleeping well (ATM) and feeling pretty damn healthy due to this not drinking jazz and getting plenty of exercise.
Hang on I hear you say, isn’t the title of this post “No More Firsts”? And here she is rabbiting on about a bunch of firsts on the cards. Nice catch! I only attract the very smartest of readers ! 🙂
I was thinking only this morning that I’m out of non drinking firsts. Over the past 2 years while I’ve been taking longish periods away from my beloved wine I’ve actually covered them all at some point… Christmas, NYE, Birthdays, Funerals, Weekends away*, Conferences, Dinners with friends and enablers alike, Winery visits, the list goes on…. Hell, I’ve even had my MIL stay and not drink! The only thing I’m missing is a wedding but we are past that in my circle ATM, so I think I’m good there. It’s true what those who have gone before say, it does get easier, those firsts come and go and you go on with your journey a little bit surer that what you doing is right for you.
*After looking at me like I’d lost my mind when I said I was taking the year off booze, my colleague came out with “Oh good, we don’t have to walk back to the work show, you can drive us home!” It was his car and 40 degrees, so I was more than happy to drive the drunks home. I do love how often Aussies immediate go to is “You non drinking freak… here are my keys, you’re responsible for us all now” LOL! I also enjoyed waking up without a hangover the next morning in that heat, that was the real bonus!
