I've been in a pretty good mood today. Dinner involved yummy grilled steak and roasted red potatoes (very awesome, btw.) My hubby has decided to join a 90 outpatient addiction program for his alcoholism. He wound up not going to rehab, but I think this option is even better.
Tonight we went to Al Anon as a family. We talked about acceptance and detachment, both things I'm working hard at right now. I'm a control freak; I like being in control of everything, and this is just something I can't control. So I'm learning to let go without pushing him away. It's hard not to play the "find the booze" game, but it doesn't help either of us. Talking candidly in the group I think helped him understand where I'm coming from.
Right now, I'm really trying to learn to work the program. I have a small journal, and I'm reading every day, and trying to take notes on what's going on.
Last weekend, we went to my MIL's house (unfortunately broke a 30 day SP login streak, but what can you do?). We walked the property we're going to be moving to. I did take a picture or two, although it's not very impressive right now since it's covered in pines. :)
But here it is:
The whole property is about 4.5 acres. 2 of that's usable, the rest a bit boggy, but I'm excited. We're also located across the street from one of those lovely white country churches, so that's what I'll see... trees and church. :)
Here's the link to the full album, since the stupid upload decided to rotate the pictures (I double checked... they're oriented properly on my computer!) You can see all the pictures I took here:
We'll also have unrestricted access to 400+ acres of trees, ponds, and river to hunt/hike/fish as we please. I'm not a hunter yet, but I plan to be!
I'll be more inspiring later. Now it's tired time!
