Happy New Year—52 Days Sober!
I loved scrolling through Tumblr this morning to see all of the sober celebration posts. I too drank my apple cider with pride last night. and much before the clock struck 12 I was in my warm bed. While I am exhausted from all of the holiday ballyhoo, I am not bent over the toilet or holding my head wishing for the throbbing to end—one of the many reasons I love being sober.
2013 was a year of mammoth accomplishments, which I won’t post on FB, but feel like I can post here on Tumblr…
1. Finished MA in English Education
2. Started Ph.D in English Education
3. Started a new job teaching 8th grade ELA
4. Got engaged at Walden Pond!
5. Ran my second half-marathon in record time
I’d say it was a pretty good year considering all the mind-bending physical and mental stress that came along with the accomplishments listed above. I think I’ll take a nice long nap to start this new year off with a bang.
I’m on day 47 of my sobriety and doing pretty well, all thing considered. Oh, and I got engaged on December 23rd, so yeah, I’m happy.
