28 Days

Well, this is it, folks.

The day has arrived.

Today, I travel north for an hour or so, and will enter a 28 day residential treatment program.

It's also been 28 days since my last drink.

I'm apprehensive, anxious, and cautiously hopeful and expectant.

I'm also very grateful:
  • For a chance to work intensively for 28 days on getting and staying sober

  • For the focus of this particular program on identifying the core issues and how to face them and finding and utilizing appropriate coping tools and methods

  • For my pastor's enthusiastic and very real support of my entering this program

  • For my husband's unwavering love and support

  • For a chance to start over

  • For my sponsor

  • For my family

  • For my friends

  • For my sweet kitty, Boots, who's slept with me for the past week (he knows something's up!)

  • For the speaker's story this past Saturday

  • For all of you, my awesome blogging peeps

  • For Justin Timberlake's Futuresex/Lovesounds, and for my MP3 player
Y'all will still be here when I get back, won't you?

Love you all. MUAH!!!! (((((mucho hugs)))))
