update # lost track lol

Well looks like summer is almost over although it is beautiful here today in good old Ontario.  I'm still sober after 1661 days.  So i guess that is just over 4 1/2 years.  Wow.  I have to say I can say I am proud of that.  It's been damn hard at times but all in all, I'm doing O.K.  
 I am actually learning to drive (at 51).  Who knew!!!!!!  What a great feeling of freedom it is giving me.  Once I learn to parallel park and well, just park, I'll be doing my actual road test.  Haven't booked that yet.  
I also have my own business, this being the second summer.  I do landscaping/gardening/weeding//// lol.  I am loving it.  I am a gardener at heart and I guess my own gardens aren't enough.  It is a very satisfying job.  I love it when someone is overwhelmed when they see what I have done for them.  Just finishing up a pond this year.  I may actually post some pics.  
I also want to get back to doing my jewelry.  It has been put on hold for a while.  Just haven't set up my space yet but I guess winter is for that.  I actually can't wait to get started.  I have the bug again!!!!!  
We are empty nesters now.    My daughter moved out quite a few years ago when she left for college and now lives with friends near by and my son just moved out this summer.  I never realized how quiet it is.  Kinda lonely really.  I miss them a lot but they grow up and become confident, independent adults.  I am very proud of them.  We have come a long way in our relationships over the past 4 1/2 years.  It has been worth every day of sobriety.  
My husband and I are getting to know each other again.  Sounds odd really but it's true.  You kind of lose that partnership after the kids come.  Everything we do is for our children or affects them somehow and we just lost, or should I say, I feel I lost the connection we once had.  It can be a struggle for me some days.  Isn't that strange?  I think also for me is that he continues to drink.  Not so much in front of me but out in his shop or he will take one up to watch tv, or if I go out for an evening, drinks when I am out.  I worry about him now that I am sober.  I am just not sure if maybe I am reading more into it than what is really there.  I don't know.  Anyway, it is something I am working on.  I know I love him and he loves me.  It is just weird right now for me.  Hopefully that changes once we get into more of a routine being alone again.
Anyway, I have blabbed on enough.  Just a quick update since I don't seem to get here very often.  Life is actually busy for me now that I am never hung over everyday!!!!  woohoo
Update soon
