Funny that this was the dish towel I pulled out of the drawer today, as it was also the question that was in my head all day long. Today is February 1. So Dry January is technically over. And coincidentally tonight I have a date night with my husband and we are going out for our first nice dinner together since before the holidays.
So I have been debating all day. Wine? No wine? In my gut, I have to admit, I don’t feel ready. But on the other hand, this is the first time my husband and I have been to this beautiful restaurant and what’s just one glass? Wine not?
But for me tonight, it’s “Wine? Not.” And that’s OK. And it would also be OK if I did decide to drink tonight. For me personally, I feel in my gut that I want to finish reading This Naked Mind before I drink again. (And with the Super Bowl coming up on Sunday, I better get crackin’!)
Not to mention the points! Alcohol is a LOT of points! Tonight, I’ll be spending those points on dessert instead.
I’m trying to remind myself that there is no right or wrong here. If I’m not ready, I’m not ready. And that’s OK. If I never drink again, that’s OK. If I drink a few glasses of wine on Sunday, as long as I have the points for it, that’s OK.
For tonight: wine? Not. But dessert? Bring it on!
