Ate new food. Saw a bluebird for the first time ever. Enjoyed lots of good family time with Spouse and Eldest. Sad I have to go back tomorrow.
Spouse once again said how proud and envious of my sobriety he is - that was nice. I told him that....Some days are harder than others. The farther away from the beginning you get the easier it gets. Days 3 through 10 suck the worst. The whole first month is hard but if you can get to thirty days it eases off a lot. The thing to do is just keep trying - one of the times will stick. You can't say "only if [super-horrible bad thing like death of child] because then you've already started bargaining with That Voice. Turn it around d and say "even IF a Really Bad Thing happens I still -won't- drink.
That's it for now; falling asleep as I try to think and type. Long drive tomorrow.
