Good morning all. I wish you a blessed day full of your favorite things and people. I just wanted to share, I took another baby step last night and went to my nephews fresh-soph football game. It was a home game so it was only 15 minutes away. It was a beautiful fall evening and I got to sit with my family and friends. I totally got into the game. It brought back memories of when my son played football and how much I loved watching him play. It was such a joy to watch the kids trying their best on each and every play. A big social outing for me and I did it. Today hubby & a friend left for 2 days to go to Clear Lake. I am looking forward to this time at home alone. I've learned something about myself in the past few days and I need time to absorb it and come up with a game plan. I've been thinking it's my job to make hubby happy, to see he takes his meds, to get him out and about, to keep everything at an even keel so he doesn't get upset or depressed, to make sure he eats regular, etc. etc.. I felt quilty when he had a relapse with drinking, like I must not have been doing or saying something right. I just realized, it's not my job. It's his. I can love and support him, but it's up to him what kind of day or mood he's in. I feel so blessed to be a part of this SR family and have all your love, support, knowledge and help. Thank you one and all.
