Day 4 was the hardest day for me yet.

The fourth day of my sobriety experiment, Saturday, was definitely the hardest so far.

It was a day where wine would have flowed so seamlessly into my plans.

My friend and I took our daughters to a birthday party at Sweet & Sassy in the afternoon. 

We had just over two hours to kill before we had to pick the girls up from the party. 




It was a gorgeous, late summer day…not too hot, a nice breeze…the perfect afternoon to sit and enjoy a glass of wine at a restaurant with a patio.

(Of which there were several located in the same shopping complex as Sweet & Sassy.)

But we resisted the temptation and instead went to Nordstrom and Home Goods.

Instead of my wine, I had a gross unsweetened tea from Starbucks. Blech.

By the way, let me just tell you that the Sweet & Sassy birthday party was amazing.

The girls (ages 6-7ish) had hair, manicures, pedicures, and makeup done. PLUS then they got to take a fifteen minute ride in a hot pink limo.

They absolutely loved it. 

We came home from the party and I got to work making dinner– my husband’s favorite meal that I make. It’s an Indian dish called korma. 

It is so good. Here is the recipe. I always make naan bread and jasmine rice with it, too. 


As I was setting the dinner out on the table, my husband asked which bottle of red wine I wanted with our meal. 

“Umm, neither,” I said. “I’M NOT DRINKING.”

So he had some Cab franc while I had water. Almost the same. Really.

That evening we were invited to our neighbor’s house to watch the fight, but I stayed home while my husband went.

I was really tired, I didn’t feel like finding a babysitter, and not drinking makes me less social…especially if it’s a situation where everyone else is going to be drinking.

So.

I caught up on my shows and went to bed by 11:00, sober and happy that I managed to stick to my guns and make it through the day without alcohol.
