What a difference a year makes last December felt as though it was 10 weeks long. This December is getting close to being over and it feels like my birthday was yesterday.

So since the last time i posted, went to Santa Fe New Mexico for thanksgiving and had a blast with the fam. and my father-in-law and his wife. We had a great time shopping and eating. Lets not forget the great conversations. Had my birthday, we went downtown for dinner and to a parade with very good friends. My father-in-law and i built my son a loft bed(i probably wouldn't have done this still drinking let alone suggested it). A friend of mine from college and he is in the program have been hitting meetings during the week. I now have a sponsee, we start working on the steps this Saturday. My Christmas shopping is all done and wrapped or sent out. life has been very busy but in a very good way and i would not trade it for anything. Looks like we are going to have a white Christmas here in Colorado.

All in all everything is going well. Shadow your writing seems to be going to a whole new level. I still get on and read three to four times a week to be inspired by it THANK YOU.

Well hello

It has been a while, let me update my 1 years has come and gone almost up to 14 months and still going strong. Being sober still rocks an so does cherry Dr. pepper, any who the marriage is going well. My little dude is growing like a weed and so does the attitude. But that is a different rant and blog, everything in my life is pretty well. Going to Santa Fe for thanksgiving with my father-in-law and his wife, it should be a good time.

The reason i have been not blogging is a selfish and kind of a poor excuse. I just haven't wanted to, i still get on and read everyone else but i have just been avoiding it. There is no real reason other then that. I have always been the type of person who writes when sad or angry but when things are going well i talk about it. blogging is a form of communication that i used to get through a very hard time for me and i let you all in with my hurt and pain. Shouldn't you also get to hear about all the good things as well. So i am going to be more thoughtful and let other people know that this program does work. There is a better life then drinking it away.

11 months

Well i picked up my 11 month chip on Sunday. It really made my feel kind of sad, every month for the last 11 months i have had something to look forward to. Now i have one more for a year then it's another 525,600 min. until my next one. I know i should be thinking more positive and live for today but this thought popped into my head. I know with this program it teaches you to crawl then walk and finally run. But damn it i really like picking up chips every month, it's nothing to drink over or lose sleep about but it still bugs me. For the life of me this has been on my mind since Sunday afternoon and it won't go away. I feel better about it today as i inch closer to one year.

School has finally started so the wife is back to work and my little man was off to his first day of preschool. They all ways call on their way to the babysitters (why are they called baby sitter how about munchkin sitters or very young adult sitters some thing cooler then baby sitters sorry just a little rant) and she said he had a hard morning. He was scared to go, now he went to a preschool last year but he was also there for three years in their other programs. A new school this year had him all worked up and sad. So i left work for a while and meet the very young adult sitter at his class and walked him in. Boy that little guy has a very strong bear hug and he would not let go. I talked to him for a little while and then the teacher came over, he was wearing his Broncos Jay (the cry baby) Cutler jersey. She started to talk football with him and then like a little switch went on in his head that this was going to be OK. My wife called a few hours later to say he was having a great day.
Well that's about all that is going on here i hope all is well with you folks out there.

We our off to a night out. Sort of, my wife's father took our little one on a train ride up to Glenwood Springs for the night. So we our off to get a little dinner then pick them up at the train station(this sounds as though it should of been written in the 1800's). Finally picked a roofer and next is paint for the house. Now my wife doesn't know if she wants to move right now, "I could live here for another year or two" She says. Well off to dinner, hope all is well in your worlds.

322 days

Hello everyone, life is good busy but good. I know this is way to long in between post i started this blog to help me through a very hard time in my life. Now that i have all of that back i need to keep coming back. I need to share my day with you all and keep going in this positive direction that I'm going. We our thinking of putting our house on the market but a couple of weeks ago we had a wicked hail storm. Now we our dealing with the ins. company, that's been a real treat. We have been doing a lot of touch up work on the house and it has been really fun to work with my wife. She goes back to work in a couple of days so we will see what the stress of her job does to us. If i approach it wit patience, pity and tolerance things will be fine.

Working together

Well this past Wednesday we started to remodel the main bathroom. We are working on it as a team and it is going so well. There are times i have to remember that she has not done this before and needs direction. But i don't want to tell her what to do, but i need to give her some positive direction. I would of in the past just barked at her and said get out of the way i will do it. Now i want to see her struggle and figure it out( what the hell is this patience I'm learning). Well off to meeting and then laying tile. See you later.
