San Diego trip and a fail at the end!

Well, it got the best of me. Hubby and I made it through the whole event alcohol free until I opened my mouth last night. It was finally over and we took a cab to the beach area. And there was wine everywhere, the sun was setting and the musician was playing. Everyone was sitting at the outside beach bar.

As soon as the words came out of my mouth hubby jumped right on board. I knew I shouldn’t share my longing for the wine. But I did. And he wanted to have some beer. So we had 3 drinks and watched sunset. It was not as magical as we’d imagined it would be.

We attended dinners and parties alcohol free and then we failed just the two of us the last night. We made a conscious decision to drink and to see how it felt.

We followed the sunset with dinner and two more drinks. It felt comfortable like an old shoe. Then we went back to the hotel and slept and woke up super early to go to the airport. My head hurts slightly and I woke up hungry which has not happened during my sober days.

We both decided it was a glitch and to go right back to sobriety. It was an experiment and we both like being sober better.

So, back on track now. No drinking at the Styx concert tomorrow or my friends’ wedding on Sunday.

I am ok with the glitch. I’m not going to beat myself up. Just going to move forward and keep improving.

I just turned 50 and am ready to make 2020 the year of major change for myself and my family! I am a realtor, an artist and a fitness lover. I am ready to tackle some of those difficult things in life that seem to get put off and put off and see where this new road of focus and intention takes me.
