Day 2: Preparing for the Witch

So Day 1 (I have honestly lost track of which number day 1 we are up to now) is officially in the bag.

Because on Saturday I am faced with my previous-sober-attempt-complete-and-utter-sobriety-train-wreck of an event to end all … Continue reading Day 55: For Better, For Worse, For Richer, For Sober…
