Checking in- Day 5

Today is the start of day 5! I feel slight anxiety this morning, have a little headache, and still feel slightly weak. I had another nightmare that I drank a mixed drink at a wedding and I was bawling thinking I had to start all over. I was so disappointed that I'd have to log on here admitting my mistake. How glad I am it isn't reality! On the plus side, I walked outside and everything seems brighter somehow. There's more color in the sky and the plants. It's a really great sight.

I have a very busy day planned. I'm taking my kids to John's Incredible Pizza as a last summer bash before school begins, and then we're going school clothes shopping. I'm a little nervous about how I'll feel in the big crowds but hopefully all will go well.

I hope everyone is having a good day/night. I'll check in later this evening. Here's to another 24

What an uplifting post! Isn't it fabulous to realize it was just a bad dream, and the sky really is brighter!

You and your kids will always remember these days together.. Mine are now almost grown. You will never regret this time spent sober and truly present with them.

Enjoy every bit of summer left.

Way to go!
