A few days ago I was sitting around home feeling a bit out of sorts. It was about 5 PM, the time in the past that would have meant wine, and I think I was longing for that a bit. I wasn't grumpy, nor depressed, just feeling sort of disconnected from everything, and really, wondering why I was bothering with this whole sobriety stuff.
I noticed a tune in the background. 15-year-old daughter keeps her radio on constantly in her room, and I have by now learned to pretty much relegate it background noise and ignore it. But this one caught my attention. I realized it was Carry On, my theme for abstinence. And so I shall.
Happy Valentine's Day!
