Yet another calm, no alcohol evening at home. Excellent!
15 year old daughter and I are planning to drive to the city where daddy/husband works today. And attend his work Christmas party tonight. BUT...
There is a winter snow advisory here in our city, and also in his city 5 hours north of here. They already have about a foot of snow, and are expecting more snow starting this afternoon and continuing through the weekend. I do have a new car with all-wheel drive. I guess we'll start out, and be ready to stop for the night or turn back if the roads get treacherous.
It's funny, in thinking about this plans and possible modification, how little thought I've given to alcohol. In the past, such a journey would have required stock-piling wine, in case we arrived really late- and arguing myself into no alcohol before the journey (at least I've always had good common sense about not drinking and driving- small favors!). Even with husband's Christmas party this evening, it just hasn't been much on my mind. And to me, that is really a miracle!
I know Wolfie will be back again, but it is such a gift to have this respite from dealing with him. Now to tackle the empty calories I've been consuming to keep him at bay!! On the other hand, I figure I was consuming about 800 - 1000 empty wine calories a day before, so that should give me some leeway!
