steady as she goes

I would estimate that the percentage of people who are blogging (not just for our sobersphere) because they are or want to become writers is 80%.   Seems like I hear that a lot in the blogs – about being a writer and all.

I once had a psychic woman in Tucson interview me for an hour and her first impression was that I was a writer.  She thought for sure that if I didn’t write professionally I did as a hobby or something.  Well, I don’t and am not 🙂  Always thought it would be cool but my mind just doesn’t work that way.  I am not the best speaker.  I do “speak” better when I write but beyond that . . .

My point?  I never have anything to say in my posts when things are par for the course, you know? If I were creative in the writing arena, I would be full of things to say wanting to get down my thoughts and ideas. Currently, I have none.

That being said, things are going well.  My last appointment with the acupuncturist is tomorrow (for the package I purchased).  He worked mostly on my fatigue, memory, bowel issues and whatever else he was finding that needed attention (my RA and my addiction). It’s been a good experience.  I plan to continue seeing him, but not as frequently.

My summer is chock-full of fun and adventures.  Another glass blowing class, a trip to Southern New Mexico, a Sedona spa day, skydiving, time with my best friend, Mt Rushmore, Yellowstone, zip lining, grandkids, hikes, bike rides, the arrival of a new grandbaby. . .

Yes, I still have longings for a drink – like at my Mother’s Day brunch – a Mimosa (or 2 or 3) would have certainly hit the spot or even a Bloody Mary – but, I steered clear.  And, will continue to do so.

  1. I am not a writer!
    But I lost my ability to hear music, so writing a blog has helped me feel creative!
    Your summer plans sound awesome!
    And you are staying sober which is fantastic!

    Wow, can I please have your summer? Sounds like you’ll have plenty to write about should you choose to.

  3. Par for the sober course is wonderful. Enjoy your summer. I have another grand baby on the way, too.

    Hi Debbie, I feel the same way, nothing to report sometimes. This usually means that nothing is going wrong in my lie, so it’s OK. Have an amazing summer, sounds fantastic.
