This week I did a “Press This” (not really knowing what would happen), but hoping it would attach the Unpickled post I was trying to link to, and it did. And just now I did a “Reblog” of Belle’s Friday Celebration Roundup, where my Day 180 was mentioned. And that worked too.
WordPress does have some neat tools, many of which I have not made the effort to figure out. After checking on whether the “Reblog” worked, and it did, I thought, “Why not do an original post? Just a simple hello, post.”
It will be short but,
“Hello. I hope you are doing OK. I’m good, and that is really a good thing, considering it is Friday! Today is Day 186 alcohol free. And I am excited for a ‘normal’ Friday night. I am going to order some food for our family, and we are going to watch a movie on the couch. Last Friday, we were out of town, and the Friday before was Halloween. And I can’t really recall the details of the prior Friday so it must have been a ‘normal’ Friday too.”
But wait, when did Fridays become “normal” again???? Did I really just say I am excited for a “normal” Friday?
It seems like it wasn’t that long ago when I was posting the Fridays were still so very hard. And they are still, in ways, but yet I am noticing that today was not at all as tough as a Friday was even a month ago.
Perhaps passing the 6 month mark from May 12, 2014 has really helped me turn a corner?
I am imagining a circle where I have passed the halfway point and I am going back “home.”
I joined Belle’s Team 365, after getting to 180 Days. And while at times this week, making this additional pledge to 1 year (yikes!!!!) has really made me nervous, today, right now, I am absolutely OK with it – and it is Friday!
Maybe I am OK because I just saw my name in Belle’s Friday Celebration Roundup. I don’t know because really I have been OK all day. Maybe Fridays are really getting easier, and maybe I will continue to be excited about “normal” Fridays again? We will see.
But after re-blogging two other posts this week, I wanted to do my own simple post to just say hello.
So . . . “Hello. I hope you are doing OK today too.”
