Oh Sunday, my Sundays.......
Today is day seven for me, I haven't had a drink since last Sunday night
It wasn't a good day, but it was the day that is changing my life. I have shared custody of my 3 children with my ex, and my husband has 2 kids of his own that live with us 99% of the time. Sunday nights my babies go back with their "father" (meaning useless parent), and I always used to drink that night away because I miss them so much I can do this, I can find other things to do, I WILL NOT drink tonight!!

Drinking makes us all into 'useless parents', so hang in there and be proud that there is only one 'useless parent' in this family.
Today is a clean slate. What happened yesterday is gone, what happens today depends on me.
Reach for the stars, but keep a ladder handy just in case you've got to climb a bit.

Yea, I guess that comment did seem a little snarky, but it's the honest truth. He has nothing to do with our children, his fiance does most of the parenting. She's said it herself, but anyway I hate turning my babies over to that monster every week.
But again, I will not drink tonight!!!! I really didn't think I could make it this long........it's been probably 3-4 years since I've been 7 days! Heck it's been along time since I've gone more than 2-3 days!!! My hubby has been so supportive of me

RedheadJen, Today is day seven for me, I haven't had a drink since last Sunday night? You are FANTASTIC. Congratulations.
Success is making yourself do the thing you need to do when you need to do it whether you like it or not.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

Congrats on a week.
Today I have a pot of stuffed cabbage simmering ready for some football.
