Oh my God, I’m a regular flosser

So tonight as I was flossing and brushing my teeth, it struck me that I am a regular flosser for the first time in my entire life. Being an alcoholic, so many things got put off for so long during my drinking. I went to the dentist for the first time in over ten years. It wasn’t pretty and I had to have deep cleaning done. But in that month since, I have flossed every night. I haven’t even really had to think about it.

I am learning to take care of myself again. By doing so, I believe my self confidence is growing. And through that, I am learning to love myself again. I have hated me for so long. I can look at myself in the mirror and not think horrible things. This is amazing. This is change. I am blessed.

Oh Disney…

My son has transitioned over into watching Disney junior, and I have been watching more of it than I would ever care to. I have a serious issue with the way that Disney has continued to portray Minnie and Daisy. I keep seeing them get into cat fights, bickering over who is better and acting in a less than admirable manner. Now I see Mickey or Donald get into trouble, but they do not really fight among each other. Is Disney trying to show that girls bicker and fight over stupid things, while boys have “bigger” problems and a sense of brotherhood. It really is a shame to watch. If I ever have a daughter, I would hate to have her see these things over and over.
