Hello, Betty Ford???

Let's get one thing straight right off the bat, that is NOT a picture of me!! Although, that has been me at some point, ESPECIALLY when camping. Let's be honest, there is NOTHING to do while camping except drink and smack the mosquitoes. But camping is not the subject of my post. I'm going to stop drinking! *waits for faithful followers to get up off floor* Yes you all read it correctly. But in case you missed it the first time or for those slower readers: I-AM-GOING-TO-STOP-DRINKING. And NO! I'm not having a "stupid baby". (Although Congrats to Tyrone over at TT who just popped out yet another stupid baby!)

I'm just getting tired of it all. I just turned 34 and let's all be honest, while it was fun to be the crunked obnoxious girl, flashing everyone while standing on the table at 21, its not so cute at 34! I'm tired of after about 3 drinks turning into a Jekyll and Hyde, Banshee wailing, Jaeger-shooting Zombie that doesn't remember shyt then picking fights with everyone I come in contact with, including my sweet Steven. It sucks and its not fair!!! So, I'm taking a break. I'm giving myself 2 weeks. At the end of the 2 weeks, Daylene is having her 30th birthday at a wine shop. So of course I will have to partake...responsibly, of course!!

Here are some things that have happened to me in the last few days since I've stopped drinking:

01). I now forget where I left my car. Seriously, Wednesday morning I woke up and I couldn't for the life of me remember where I parked my car!

10). I have cut my legs shaving. I haven't cut myself shaving since I was 13!

11). I have managed to drop my hairbrush in the toilet.

100). I have stubbed my toe countless times while stumbling around in my bedroom. Even sober, I still have no equilibrium!

101). I have managed to burn several fingers on my flat-iron.

110). I have headaches.

111). I can't concentrate and ironic as it is, I feel like a Zombie....Hmmm.

1000). I have started counting in binary! ARGH!!!

1001). Its not as much fun to watch the Stanley Cup playoffs while drinking Gatorade. I'm a spectator damn it NOT a participant!!!

On the positive, I'm hoping to lose weight. Like A LOT of weight in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime I'm going to have to find a new hobby. And I guess I'm going to have to start using actual weights to work out my biceps since I won't be doing 12 oz curls anymore!

Wish me luck. And if you have any ideas for hobbies, PLEASE let me know!!!

Love the picture ;)

And I'm on the wagon, too - for another 16 days (will be a month total). It's surprisingly liberating. Not nearly as fun, but I don't miss the groggy work days ;)

Good Luck!!! I think I may majorly cut back drinking after my vacation, no way am I trying this out before vacation. I plan on being crappy every night LOL as for hobbies, I think I need to find some too because most of mine involve drinking lol
