Well, I’ve made it to Day 8, which is great but I’m finding today particularly challenging. We (my little one and my -abusive- partner) are snow bound at home and it looks like we will be again for at least another day. I cannot get to work (my escape) and was so, so tempted to try and drive in this morning even though all radio/weather/traffic reports said it would be suicide.
Anyway, a combination of the tension building with abusive partner, little one cranky from lack of activities and my own boredom and frustration being stuck indoors ALL DAY (I have to be on the go constantly), I am desperately craving a drink!!! I nearly gave in once or twice but thankfully didn’t in the end.
