Misery Loves Company
Slap. Slap. Squish. Slap. Slap. Squish. It's 4:00 am and the Gulf is blowing in through my upstairs bedroom window. There's at least an inch of water covering the whole damn floor. And in the other bedroom too.
And I am so damn grateful.
Slap. Slap. Squish. Slap. Slap. Squish.
It's 8:00 am and I'm scrubbing the stubborn cooked on scrambled eggs from the bottom of the skillet. My eyes are bleary and I can feel myself getting bitchy from a lack of sleep.
And it's still raining.
And I'm still so damn grateful.
Because I used to look at days like this and think how beautiful they must be, untainted by booze.
How wondrous it must be to move through the small hardships without the added weight of misery.
I never thought they'd be mine.
