I am so glad I am not drinking. If I were drinking, I would not be coping with my life.


Thursday I came home from work just exhausted. The type of exhausted where coping is not an option. The Magpie refused to accept that NO can be directed at her. BRE needed help with school work. I have 108 essays sitting in a bag since last Friday (a week ago). Eight are graded.
