Who's idea was this anyway?

Just got done hosting a Halloween party for a gaggle of six year old boys. Did I really agree to stop drinking?

I totally know where you are coming from. I just got done with an inside trick or treat at the school and a dance for the kids where they had strobe lights going. I have a wicked headache and am very, very . . . tired. Yup! Bed sounds wonderful.

(BTW - my boy is 6 turning 7 this coming month. ) You go Mom! Party for 6 year olds will fray anyone's nerves.

Penny - I must admit that I had a good laugh, as I have three kids around that age and I know, ohh, do I know.

I carved pumpkins with them tonight and I was driven to sugar - just so I could keep up with them.

For those of you reading and thinking that kids will be a motivator to stop drinking alcoholically, let Penny and I tell you that - nope.

I am sorry Penny but when I read your post I R O F L M A O

It brought back some great memories.

I was 4 1/2 months sober and the Alano Club I spent a lot of time at planned a Halloween Party for all the youngsters of those that attended. Now mind you I had not been around little ones for a while by then, as my last years of drinking were spent on the street, I was 36 years old, ended up sitting on the floor with the littlier tykes 4 and under and I had the most fun I had had in years!!!!!! Got to be a little kid again for the first time in many years.

Now just look at you, you got through it, probably had at least a little fun, and you are still sober!

WAY TO GO!!!!!

You did good!!

Love and hugs,

Good job, Penny! I had a kid filled week, too. I'm beat. I hear ya, traderjane!!

Went to a grown up party tonight...first time out. I drank 2 Sprites. I actually can't believe it. I did leave early, tho. It's gonna take some time for me to get used to going to things like that and not drinking.
