Off on vacation
After a grueling week at work, I'm off to Cape Cod for a vacation. We've rented a small house on a lake with a dock and I'm so ready to swim, relax, eat clams, go boating, walk on the beach, read novels....
This will be my first sober vacation. I was feeling very ambivalent about this but this morning I know that I am going to do it. A sober friend noted that you don't get many family vacations in life and it's important to be present for them. So I will be. See you next week, everyone.
P.S. Grace, the ginger beer is an awesome substitute for wine. I only allow myself to drink it when I would otherwise have been having a glass of wine. Yummy stuff!
