D Day

Tomorrow is the big day. I am feeling excited, scared, anxious, worried, happy, sad, - ok, pretty much every emotion there is all mixed into one. It's crazy chaotic thinking here at home with my mind reeling in ten different directions and unable to sleep. Then I go to the rehab facility and look... Sign in to see full entry.

Now this is just plain creepy!

Ok, so today I was cleaning out my husband's "man cave" because we are turning it into an extra bedroom. He is no longer allowed in the basement since that is where he did his drinking. Anyway, he keeps EVERYTHING, and I found all kinds of "memories" - pictures, cards, newspaper clippings, etc. Many... Sign in to see full entry.

Husband coming home

We had another counseling session today and we decided Wednesday is the day for my husband to come home. We are both so nervous, you'd think it was our first date!

Today has been a rough day for me. I got a scant 3 hours of sleep last night. Sleep has eluded me lately. Too much to do, too little time. I took my husband back to the dr. this morning.

Then we all sit in a circle while he reads each thing and has the opportunity to respond. My husband only had 7 defect comments, one being they couldn't... Sign in to see full entry.


My parents and I went to see my husband last evening. My Dad, who is 80, drove up there which always makes me nervous. He did fine but it reminded me of a trip a few years back. We have a family reunion in Kansas City every December. It's about a 4-1/2 hour trip. It was snowing and we had debated... Sign in to see full entry.

I was at my daughter's house this evening for dinner. Her husband and sons had spent the better part of the afternoon putting together their new pool. The kids were so excited to start swimming and very disappointed when my son-in-law explained that the pool holds 5,000 gallons of water and,... Sign in to see full entry.

Day Off

I took the day off today. I've been at Valley Hope so much this past week that I feel kind of lost today. But my oldest daughter called and invited me to dinner so I am looking forward to that. My husband called this morning. It was nice to get his call. I feel like we are just beginning to know our... Sign in to see full entry.

Family Focus Week

Home from Valley Hope having completed Family Focus Week. We had another session with his counselor today. I was really nervous because she asked me to write a letter to my ex-husband two days ago. I told her "I can't, I won't, absolutely not!" Her response was to just think about it. Well, I did... Sign in to see full entry.
