    I miss the nest! We are very busy here in the Kensho house... lifeguard certifications, planning trips and visitors, planting spring gardens and planning two birthdays, while having too much work has us sweating. BUT I am not drinking. Something happened yesterday that made me very aware of just how much I value sobriety. It is truly the best decision I have ever made. Look forward to reading some tomorrow - best to all for a good night!

    Done. Moving on to life.

    Now I’m left curious about what happened yesterday to make you value your sobriety, Kensho!

    I spent the day visiting relatives, plus driving the three hours there and then back; with my mom and sister. Gone are the days when my mother would just fly down to her hometown herself and not invite me -now she needs a ride due to vision problems, so I’m included!
    There were many bottles of hard liquor out for mixing drinks, plus bottles of wine, plus lots of beer and spiked cans of stuff in the fridge.
    Then when a cousin arrived carrying practically a full bar with her in her carrying caddy, that’s when twin sister succumbed and started slipping hard liquor into her water glass. I could see the change in her eyes and in her speech.
    I wish people and society could make it easier on alcoholics to join in social gatherings by not making such a big deal & focal point out of their drinking, and not needing to have so much of it sitting out in plain sight.

    It does make me value my sobriety though, anyways.

    Goodnight, Nesters!
