Back In The Old Days When I Was Only 30 …

Is it me or did the last 20 years just fly by? It is me? Well, shit. I remember as a kid thinking that my parents were just O L D. And here I am today – 20 years older then they were then. WtF?!?! How’d this happen? I don’t remember agreeing to this!

Now, my oldest son, who will be 31 in January, keeps reminding me by his very existence that my days are numbered. He could have even made me a grandmother by now if he’d wanted to (so – so thankful he didn’t and hasn’t – yet). And my youngest – well he could have made me a grandmother too if I think about it. He’s 25 – the same age my dad was when I was born.

Lordy. Where does the time go? If it were possible to keep up with time, I’d probably stick around the age of 33 for about a decade. There’s a ton of changes that, if I could, I’d tackle – namely drinking. Ooooooooohhh what I’d do differently if I knew then what I know now.

I never thought I’d watch myself write THAT!

I’m sober now and that’s what counts because that’s all I can do – stay sober. Keep doing the next right thing – whatever that is. I’m coming up on 10 months and couldn’t be happier to be going into the holiday season with a clear head and a peaceful attitude. 🥰 My loved ones aren’t here, but they are safe. – so it’s all good. 😄

Happy Thanksgiving 🦃🦃🦃 to all you WordPress Readers!
