It's Contagious: Let's Blame Sherry

 (Are those lemmings?)

Confession time, I already wrote this inspired blog once this morning as a comment to SoberMomRocks Blog but then decided to use it as my own blog.  I know, I know, a lot of you are saying to yourself, "I wish she'd do that more often instead of writing blog length comments on my blog."

  I was sitting out on my beach steps this morning thinking, "It's Thursday, I should be thinking about writing a blog." And I started looking around for inspiration. Sandpipers skittering back and forth-already made a bad analogy out of that. Waves crashing to shore and then out again-done that, too. Man walking on beach-ho-hum.

And now I'm sitting here thinking how pretentious that all sounds.

Screw it. Let's just not drink today and call it good. Sometimes that's all we need to do.

See Sherry, you never fail to inspire me.

PS. I want to thank all of you again for your prayers concerning my daughter-in-law, we got the results back from her lymph node biopsies and they were all clear so now she will precede with chemo treatments, starting this Monday and, hopefully, when they are finished, we can kick this bastard to the curb.


  1. Yeah! Blame Sherry! Firstly great news about your daughter-in-law, I hope she deals with the chemo ok and gets through. Second, oh can I count the number of times I've sat here thinking 'oh I wish Kary would post more rather than leave such long comments!!" - NOT! And finally, yes... yes...yes...all we have to do is not drink today and remember how bloody amazing we are for achieving that. Bless you my friend xxxx

  2. Hey wait...oh what the hell you can blame me. I'm Italian AND Catholic so I'm sure it's my fault.

    Love you guys!

  3. I was laughing at the part where you mentioned writing blog lengthed comments on other blogs...I am very guilty of that myself...then wonder why at the end of the night I have nothing to say...ha ha. But there is so much out there to discuss and support and learn.

    So glad to hear about your DIL.

    Another wonderful day to be sober :)


  4. Uh oh - yikes, do lengthy blog replies break protocol???
    If you, I should be on probation!!!!!

    AND YES, OF COURSE WE BLAME SHERRY!!!!!!! She's a strong, independant, self-assured woman.. she can take it. Let's ALWAYS blame her
