Day 100

Good things to report today:

I made my very last car payment on my car. It's officially mine now! I've never officially owned a car before :)

I'm very excited and having a great time designing a website. This blog will be a part of it, if I can make it all work ...

The past two evenings were spent hanging out with successful "professionals" -- and I never struggled with those feelings of inferiority that struck last week.

My boyfriend (also a recovering alcoholic) and I managed to sit at a bar and order iced tea while waiting for his friends to arrive at the restaurant this evening. It was a bit awkward for us both, but we were both so grateful to no longer be slaves to alcohol. Life is hell when your entire world revolves around a bottle.

I saw "A Scanner Darkly" today. Very interesting movie about addiction. Highly recommend this for alcoholics or addicts, but it's definitely NOT for the faint of heart or those who are easily offended by profanity.

Last, but not least, I finally saw "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" for the very first time :P Loved it.


Today, I'm especially grateful for ...

  • being 100 days sober
  • no longer being a slave to alcohol
  • overcoming feelings of inferiority
  • the opportunity to make fun websites
  • finally owning a car
  • my sweet and precious boyfriend
  • my loving family & adorable puppy
  • God, who lets me experience little miracles every day
