Back To One




I am shutting down my other blog.  I thought I could handle two blogs and posting to each about different subjects but I was wrong.  Dead wrong.  Face palm wrong.

My brain just doesn't operate that way.  My thoughts flow fast and furious and, right now, everything is so interconnected that it's hard to separate, categorize, sort and then write.  Plus, my recovery from alcoholism is also about everything else in my life and so I have to be able to write freely about all of it and let the consciousness flow naturally.

That sounds way more deep than it really is.

In addition, I'm not an expert at anything.  Some say I should write a blog about raising kids because mine turned out so well.  Yeah...that's the ticket.  A recovering alcoholic who is 51 years old and is just getting her shit together???  Oh yeah...that works.  My kids are the way they are because I put them first above everything else in my life, they have an amazing, not-screwed-up dad, and we are lucky

That's not to say that they don't turn up in this blog from time to time because they do - but I would never put myself out there as any kind of expert on raising them and would never violate their privacy by talking about things best left at home.  For example, "There was this time when the twins went running through the house naked...."  Um...not so much.  Besides, I'm saving those stories (and the pictures) for their graduation parties and the toasts at their weddings.  I don't want to use up all the good stuff before it's time.  Heh heh heh. 

So for now I'm going to stick to writing here...about everything and anything.  I hope people keep reading and commenting (I love comments.)  When I get an email with one I get all warm and fuzzy and excited.  I don't even mind the spam and trolls.  (Is that wrong?)

So if you read this blog, thank you so much.  If you were a fan of the other one, thanks for reading and I hope you follow me here.

Namaste

  1. I hope you'll intertwine the subjects for us here as much as you can and want to. Since getting sober, I've struggled more with food and other addictions, so I hope you will find a way to impart what you know/think/feel in a way that feels right. (If I remember correctly, your other blog dealt with that -- ignore this comment if I'm remembering wrong)

    1. Nope...you're remembering exactly right and yes, I'll definitely be talking about all of that. It's all part of the journey after all.

      Thanks!

  3. I love your blog! I love your writing and your insights. I would love if you included some of the sugar/eating stuff on here because I think for all of us addict types we could easily fall into those traps, especially after cutting out sugary wine. I have fallen into a terrible habit lately of having a bowl of rice bubbles just before bed with 3 heaped desert spoons of sugar on it. Really the rice bubbles are just an excuse to load up on sugar. What is that about??!! I'm not in a good eating phase that's for sure. Anyway .. glad you are staying with us here. Take care xx

    1. What the heck are rice bubbles? They sound so fun!

      I'll keep writing about the sugar thing...no worries. It's still a HUGE problem for me...but hell if we can give up wine we can do ANYTHING!

      XXXOOO
