11.30 am UK time, I'll take another 24 please!

Family are going home today. I played a few tunes on the piano and they said that they didn't like classical music as it was 'boring' and couldn't I play chart music instead?

Beethoven and Lizst will be turning in their graves.

Oh my. I don't think I'd play for them any longer. I'm glad you enjoy playing the piano. It is soooo healthy for your brain, and it makes your heart happy. What more could you want??? YAY for you!

I used to say that my goal everyday was to go to bed sober. Sometimes I'd fall in bed just thinking "I made it!!!" My head hitting the pillow each night was a victory. That sweetness still fills my head at night. The security, the sweetness, the satisfaction of my sober head hitting the pillow is my favorite thing.

Good morning, friends. Life here is very quiet which is a good thing. It's gonna be exciting around here in a few days, so I'll take a few quiet days.

Yes, the huge fam reunion is a few days away. I cannot WAIT!!! It's too early to pack just yet, and all the plans are made. So there isn't anything to do except be healthy and enjoy these next few days of quiet anticipation.

Happy to be checking in.

In for 24. Why would I ruin a perfectly good day?

Today I won't drink. Just for today.

I am so very happy to be sober after struggling to get sober for 2 1/2 years; this is a big one for me :-). Many of you played a part in helping me get to this point and I will be forever grateful.
