I was Ready to Go

Let’s be honest, homegirl here likes to enjoy adult beverages every now and then. The biggest challenge for me during the 24 day challenge was that I had to be SOBER for 24 days.


At first I was like, psh, no big deal. And Monday thru Thursday, it wasn’t a big deal. It’s not like I drink vodka during the day very often but when it got to be the weekend I was like, FUCK THIS.

I think God knows what we need to help us succeed in life, and as such, I woke up on the first Saturday morning of my cleanse feeling like I got hit by a Mack truck.

Sinus infection.

Thank you, Jesus. That made my first stretch of sobriety very easy.

The rest of the challenge was a…challenge. Go figure. But I did it. And this past weekend was the first time I had tasted the sweet, sweet nectar in almost a month.


I did summa this:


And I quickly realized that 24 days of not drinking would quickly lead to summa this:


fact: this is not my couch.

While I surprisingly did not feel like shit the next morning, I surly did want to sleep in and have a quiet morning alone.

Apparently, Penny the Princess had other plans.


Digressing: I’m interested to see how that’s going to look in a few months. Currently, she’s 3 months old and weighs 40 pounds. And if that’s not an indicator of how big she’s going to get, these little baby paws might be 😉

    I think Maureen’s comment is right on! I’m the type of person that the second I’m told I can’t have something, then I want it all the time. If I put myself on a no wine cleanse then I would be craving merlot at breakfast :) And Penny is so cute! I love seeing pics of her.

    So many things I need to comment about, I have to make a list:
    1. 24 days without drinking sounds so difficult. I mean I haven’t been out hardcore drinking in a while (I do miss those college days, sometimes) but I love my girls night out beer/mixed drink. And all the seasonal fall beers…omggg
    2. Are you drinking out of a mason jar? You are my new bff
    3. Are you drinking apple pie moonshine out of a mason jar? If you are, we are kindred spirits
    4. My dog I had my whole childhood/most of my life was named Penny. She was a JRT, so not QUITE as big as your puppy (she liked to think she was bigger than the german shepherd next door, though) but I just wanted to commend you on picking a great dog name :)
    5. Yay for not feeling like crap the next day 😀
