post 100…….so?

POST 100. Seems like it should be a mile marker of some sort, a cause for celebration, a big event. But, sadly, it’s not. It’s just a number. A reminder that I have posted 99 times, and out of those, there has yet to be a cause for hootin’ and hollerin’. It’s been a roller coaster of successes and failures. Have I learned from those 99? Maybe a little. I have certainly gained knowledge from those who commented on my posts. I’ve been enriched by those who follow and those I follow. Each step is one step more. More in my toolbox.

I’m still skating by. Last night was a debate on my way home from house hunting (again). I almost talked myself into a beer at my fave bar which I was passing by on my way home. My response to Ms Crazy? “You cannot have just a couple of beers and call it good.” Repeated about 100 times before I got home. And I made it. Had pizza and rootbeer for dinner, watched some TV and tried to finish the most difficult puzzle I think I’ve ever worked on.

This weekend? Tonight I ralk/jalk :), tomorrow I do the same. Meeting up with some friends for breakfast and then cruise the farmers market. I have a 5k on Sunday – next week (my birthday) – and want to atleast run the whole thing. It’s called the Hot Chocolate 5k. Guess what we get when we finish? Nummy 🙂

    Bullshit. It’s totally a cause for celebration! Yes, it’s just a number, but it’s a big accomplishment. It’s triple digits baby, it’s huge. And you deserve a giant treat to celebrate. And yes, sure, you have to work out how to keep carrying on beyond 100 – and I struggled with that because I focused too much on the count. But maybe you are focusing too little on the count? Take a moment to appreciate what you’ve done here. 100 whole days without numbing, without drinking, 100 days conquering the beast. Hooray for you!

      Ha! Silly girl. It’s POST 100, not 100 days sober! I wish! I would be shouting from the roof tops 🙂

        Doh. I’m so sorry. I was speed reading blog updates and I got confused! I

        t’s great to have so many sober bloggers to follow these days but the downside is that sometimes I really feel I’m not keeping up with people’s personal stories and exactly where they’re at in the same way I was when I was literally just following a small handful. Lately sometimes it all gets jumbled up in my head. I’m sorry 😦 I’ve been a bit fly-in and out lately I must admit.

        Anyway, well, I hope you are doing ok and just keep on going.

    Thanks Debbie. I’m still embarrassed. I hate to think I might have made you feel like people weren’t really paying attention to what you were posting! It’s just that my attention and concentration is a little scattered at the moment. To say the least… But I’m glad you’re hanging in there and posting and moving forward. xx
