I'm Baaaack

So, today I had an amazing experience. Mom was at work and this wonderful young woman came up to her and told her she liked our blog! Well, you bet your bottom dollar she came home to me and asked me why I'd been slacking in my posts..for, well, an embarrassing length of time..So, that little kick in the head gave me the motivation I needed to get back on track and talk about staying sober with me..well, Sam.

Last time I posted I was thinking about what it would be like to have a new sister...well, we did, in fact adopt that new sister and, let's just say that sibling rivalry has pretty much got me stuck in a challenging cycle these, I try to fight with my sister because she gets attention or I try to boss her around when she wants to get up on the bed with mom too...I keep getting in trouble, but I can't seem to stop..kind of like that old, "doing the same thing and expecting different results" thing...

You'd think as a sober pup I'd know better, but writing this now I realized that one of the things that can happen, especially when you've been sober for a while, is that you can forget that fighting isn't the answer and wanting all the attention never leads to any is hard having another animal in the house, because I'm no longer the QUEEN (but I really still am:) and I'm being territorial and jealous, which, as all my readers know, leads to nothing but heartache..

I think this week I'm gonna start focusing on how I can find the similarities with my sister, rather than the differences (like she has big ears and I don't...) and try to find the closeness with her that I really want...because, in my little shih tzu heart, that is what I really want....

Today's Challenge: Let the person in your life you love but keep butting heads with get close to you...look for what you do have in common to share rather than what you don't....
