Long weekend recap
Well, I forgot completely how great it felt to stay sober and drank Friday and Saturday night. It started with my husband inviting me more or less to drink. "Are you drinking tonight? Because I'm going to." My sober self argued but did not put up too much of a fight. I've since told him I don't want him mentioning drinking around me anymore. I don't want to drink anymore and if he plans to, he will be doing it alone and please don't announce it before hand.
Husband has never said much about my drinking. He doesn't want to talk about it; when I've gone to meetings he doesn't want to hear about them. I'm not sure what his not saying anything signifies. Not caring or not wanting to rock the boat and let me reach my own conclusions. I know he wishes I could drink normally as he likes to go to parties and such.
In any event I didn't drink Sunday or today. Sunday I went shopping with my daughter for jeans. We went to the juniors section for the first time, hoping to find a pair with some length to them. She's very tall for her age and very lean. She found some easily. Then we went looking for a pair for me. Forget it. I used to be tall and lean. Now I'm just tall. That didn't stop me from eating a burger and fries with her, however. It was fun being out just she and me and I did end up with a few new things for spring.
Today was a cocoon kind of day, snowing all day. Slept in, got my workout in early, organized some pictures of my kids, managed to put away all the artwork, report cards, mother's day cards and other kid stuff that I want to preserve for posterity in the attic. Then after dinner, watched American Idol with the kids. I hardly ever watch tv, so it was an experience. God, there is some really bad music out there.
I did watch "All About My Mother" directed by Pedro Almovar, with my husband last night. It was a good flick although as often happens with European films we were left wondering what it was all about in the end.
Short work week this week as I am taking Friday off for a ski trip with my family. I like being home, but we haven't done much skiing as a family this winter so I think it's time.
