It’s going to be a big week good internet peeps. “A Day” or Announcement Day for some big changes in my professional world is about to arrive!
I think the stress might have been gradually creeping up on me as Friday night I had the strongest cravings for a drink that I’ve experienced in a really long time… I’m not sure how I’d have held up if someone had put a crisp flute of sparkling in my hand while I was sitting on the veranda watching the world go by! But, I distracted myself with domestic tasks and struggled through, only to be tortured by a drinking dream that night. I must have been struggling, not only was that the first ever drinking dream I’ve had, I was clearly desperate in it… I was drinking red wine out of a plastic glass! Now, I’m no wine snob, but I am a glassware snob! Anyone who knows me well knows that I’d go without than use plastic.
I’m that person, you know the one who has the right glass for every occasion. Man, I must have thousands of dollars tied up in fancy glasses that we NEVER use… brandy balloon anyone? Need tiny liqueur glasses, whisky tumblers, martini glasses or perhaps pilsner glasses for your beer*? I’m your gal! No idea why, I just love them all. Never used 80% of them, probably never will. LOL
Glassware issues aside (no, I won’t be seeking help, I love them all), the dream quite rattled me. However I played the craving through to the end – why in the world when this week is probably going to be one of the most important in my professional life until the “when to retire” one, would I decide to drink? What possible good could come from it? Nuthin’ at all! And that’s the truth.
So I’m pushing on into this week clear headed and focused on what I want and what will be good for me and Crazy Cat boy long term. I’m terrified and excited at the same time about all the unknowns that A Day will bring and I can’t wait to find out.
I promise to fill you in when I can. Stay healthy and happy all!
*I don’t drink beer or spirits, or even cocktails at home, but I have full sets of each of these different glasses, you know, just in case In case of what I don’t know, some are at least 15 yrs old and still have the stickers on them from the shop! LOL
My app tells me it’s been 90 days since I drank, that’s 25% of my stated goal completed. Once the dust is settled on A Day I’ll be close to 100 days – 104 days is my longest without a drink, I’m looking forward to beating that.
