Sober Chick

Here are the unleashed pages of a sober chick in recovery. My journey (date of sobriety) began on June 13th, 2005. For 29 years of my life I was spiritually sick. Emotinally defeated by drunken black-outs, bulimic binging and purging episodes and self-mutilation, I finally surrendered.

not a SAD-turday :)

Ok, finally I get some time again to blog. It is so beautiful this morning. It is going to be HOT today. Already we have the air on starting at 7:30 am.

Today I am taking my grandma's dog to the Vet. She is about 9 years now, and within a few months she has lost lots of weight. She is also overdue for vaccines. She is very hyper and drinks lots of H2O. At first I thought she may be diabetic. However I am now leaning towards a hyperthyroidism -- don't mean to sound like I am a Vet and have the diagnosis here. So, I am taking her to Olive's Vet and gonna put her on a wellness plan, get her teeth clean, updated on vaccines and blood work done. Because I am sober I can do this today. I can be a productive member of society and have a career, have a salary, and help my Grandma. She just turned 88 years old last month and is not able to care for Chiquita in such a way.

Tonight I am gonna Bar-B-Q. Yum! I love hanging out on the back porch. I need to get some more plant life out there but have trouble keeping them alive. :( I really need to take tips from Mary Christine and Gwen on how to care and love plant life. I try, but I can't be able to maintain their little lives. Sigh, the next step in my recovery I suppose.

todAAy i am thAAnkful & grAAteful:
- that I can be of service to my Grandma
- that Mitch & I are exploring new healing methods in our relationship
- for Darma and Greg; how a humorous personality makes a person so attractive and not the GLAMOUR way.
- my brother's engagement
- cooking -- that I don't have to obsess about binging and purging the wonderful meal and enjoy the process of it
- a very productive work week
- central air
- to smile and laugh at my cats hyperness when they get silly -- to see their tails get all puffy as they cause havoc in the house.
- watermelon and red grapes
- the onLine blogging recovery peeps

Your porch is great. I love my back porch. We have a hammock and a bar table and of course plants. When my husband met me I had not one plant. I could never keep them alive. When he came to my condo for the first time he said ~ "you need some plants in here" ~ the nerve :)

I have to take my lil dog to the vet too. He was a present from me to John when we first were married. We needed small cause we lived in a condo. He is eleven now. He needs his teeth done twice a year and I am over due. I set up the grooming but no vet yet. Wow I am really babbling. Too much coffee today.

How I miss BBQing. Hope you enjoyed the evening.

Plants aren't my specialty either. I just make sure I get the "hardy" ones.
