The week of resolutions has been going very well. I went to practice pool last night solely to give it a dry run and, to also practice because our big game is tonight. I wanted to see if I could actually hang in the pool hall,
breathe not smoke or drink and play pool ok. I played Naomi, Mick’s girlfriend and who happens to be on the opposing team tonight for the tiebreaker game. It should be interesting, either way. I have given myself an out tonight, though. If I feel like having a couple of light beers, I will partake but definitely no cigarettes. I think I’ve been doing really well with not smoking and think if I want a couple of beers tonight that’s a reasonable out. If I can manage to not drink tonight then I am treating myself to a six pack of 420 tomorrow night. (not drinking it all at once but just to have for nights I can drink like Friday and Saturday)
I’ve also been doing some mental zen-ness lately. Basically, not worrying about others, their drama, etc. but focusing inward and doing my own thing. Things seem a little more peaceful and even fun. My energy is up and my workouts have improved. So, we’ll see if I can keep this up. I think all along I just needed to let the noise go and focus inwardly.
So, if we win tonight then Saturday we’re playing in a tournament game. Sadie is finally done with all her puppy shots and is doggie-daycare ready so I may take her down there on Saturday for them to do their 6-hour assessment. Honestly, I can understand the kennel wanting to see what kind of dog they agree to take in but 6 hours – really? I think that’s a little much. And, I’m going to be a little sore if they charge me for those 6 hours. But, zen, ok zen. We’ll see about all that. I’m sure Sadie is going to do well there and they will love her. Although, my carpet doesn’t:
Sadie: “Ok, I was laying here minding my own business and suddenly a stuffed bear, yes, two bears….with knives…. came out of nowhere at me and said, “We’re here for your human-Mom” and I fought them and fought them and won. So, now you’re safe. Can I have a bone, now?”
