Ok. I’m back home. I DID IT....stayed sober��

My boyfriend is Sicilian and made homemade pizzas for about four couples and their kids.

I came over a little bit earlier before the company came and told him to please not drink in front of me alone and to please not offer me a drink .

He honored that and then the booze was flowing for the guests. Oddly, it didn’t bother me. I looked at them through a lense that was not clouded by AV. Clear, you might say.

I left early, and have no regrets about going.

Weird, but great. Not complacent by any means, but very grateful.

Thanks for all of your support!

Good for you for setting some boundaries, and good for your boyfriend for honoring them!

Morning, weekenders.

Phoenix - Great story and observation .

Free - Congrats on handling the party situation and protecting your sobriety. You won't regret it!

I am having my first cup of coffee and emotionally preparing myself to face the day.

Morning, Sao.

Yes, the last week. About 3 days and 21 hours to go. I am leaving Friday early morning.

Your boss sounds like he could use some anti-anxiety therapy.

Good morining weekenders, Happy Monday. I got way too much sun watching the parade yesterday. I'm all pink and red like a lobster. I'm tempted to stay home from work today rather that face the embarassment.

Just how burnt are you Dragon? Cos sometimes you need a doctor when that happens.....calamine lotion is the answer. I found it here somehow....do you know it? Gentle as and you put it all over the burns. But really, if it's that bad....maybe call the doc? Love from Mama Suze. ♥♥

LOL, you guys. It's not so bad that I'm blistering, but I expect I will peel. Mrs. Dragon is going to get me some Alovera but the damage is already done so....

Well, my employer has just had a major row with her mother (she was on the phone), who is kind of her "boss" when it comes to working on the blog.

That's what I really need - to be amidst their family drama.
