I wanted to write about today but I believe I have a "brain cloud" (a term from "Joe vs. the Volcano" I believe). Let’s see…
I’ve neglected to mention that The Girl lost her job two days before Christmas. We hardly ever get to see Isabella and it is hard. Please pray for our girl as she is depressed and looking for work.
After The Boy said he was going to stay overnight at a friend’s house New Year’s Eve, something told me to stay up until the wee hours. Just before four a.m., I heard the loud music which always announces his arrival in the driveway.
When he walked in, he smelled like a brewery but insisted that he was fine. Even his friends said he was fine! I took out my trusty breathylizer from his rehab. days and he blew a .16 – twice the legal limit. "But I’m fine! I just drove around the block!" "I’m taking away your keys," said I. Himself and I decided to take away his car ("You cant do that! It’s my car!" Just you watch me.) for two weeks. I thought it needed to be longer but, for the softy we call Himself, that was a lot. There’s more to it but I know you get the idea.
People all around me insist over and over again that The Boy is not an alcoholic. I’m not convinced but time will tell.
Let’s talk. Friday Falderal:
Do you ever drink alcoholic beverages? Not very much. I enjoy the occasional half glass of wine but I can’t have all that much. People drink for different reasons one of them being to feel tipsy. I can’t stand being out of control.
Have you ever been the only one not drinking at an event? Often. Himself used to get ticked off because he felt I was being a snob around his friends but he got over it when I let him have it. Can you imagine that? ~humph~
Have you ever driven under the influence? I must confess that, when I was in college working part-time, we went out for drinks after work. I ought not to have driven home. It was so out of character and I have felt terrible about it ever since.
Do you believe that alcoholism is a disease? Here we go again….you might remember my rantings on this when The Boy wa in rehab. No, no, a thousand times no! I believe that some might be more genetically disposed to alcoholism but it is not a disease. (ref. July 10 at the end of the entry)
What are you up to this weekend? Not a clue other than church on Sunday.
Oh, one more thing! We watched the movie The Bucket List with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson last night. It was fantastic and I highly recommend it.
Be well and let me hear from you. I miss all the activity we used to have around here. I stop by each of your spaces (I have them listed in folders in my favorites) as often as possible. g
