Every year, the day after Thanksgiving, I get together with a bunch of women whom have been involved with my family for years. We do crafts. This year the craft party started at 2:00 and was still going strong when I left at 8:00. It is a time I look forward to every year. Catching up with everyone and just being in a calm enviroment.

The problem with this is I had to come home. When I leave my husband home alone it is never good. How can such a caring loving man destoy himself. My husband is an alcoholic. When I am home he will just partake a little but when I am gone he is terrible.

After spending a wonderful evening with wonderful women, I came home to choas. For some reason there was coffee all over the kitchen. Pictures were knocked off shelves, a lamp was tipped over.The cords to the computer were all take off. There were triscuit going down all the steps. When I asked  him what happened he stated he didn’t know what I was talking about.

I am not sharing this for sympathy. I am venting!!! You my new friends are unfortunately getting the vent session.  

Tomorrow he will be sweet as pie. The thing that worries me is I don’t want him to end up like his father. His father is a mean sneaky drunk. My Stan isn’t mean. He is a wonderful husband and father. His biggest short fall is his drinking.

I used to work in mental health and I sometimes feel he is medicating himself. He had a very terrible childhood. I know alot of his demons stem from that.  

Thank you for letting me vent!
