Today was a fairytale

Today has been the most awesome day. I was named the employee of the year for my newspaper. I am shocked. I am speechless.

Me and my award
Once I got the news, the plaque and the congratulations, I picked up the phone. I wanted to call my mom. Even though, she's not here. She knows. And I think she is very proud of me.  This is why recovery is so important to me.  2010Actually, yesterday was the most awesome day. I was named the employee of the year for my newspaper. I am still shocked and just amazed.

For the last few months, I feel like I have been struggling. I had D take a picture of me with the plaque today. The plaque is nice and shiny.

Once I got the news, the plaque and the congratulations, I picked up the phone. I wanted to call my mom. Even though she's not here, I think she is very proud of me.  This is why recovery is so important to me.  I can't do this job at half capacity.

I have always felt I was send to RR for a reason. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I belong.

So how did I celebrate my big win. I brought some cool wine glasses with black stems. I toasted myself with citrus punch, chicken alfredo and a cupcake. Not a bad way to spend a Tuesday.

Put a dent in the Ryan’s buffet.
