Rehab: day 3

This afternoon we went on what they call a 'spirit journey'. It was a short hike around the hills in zero degree weather. It was really an excuse to walk to the coffee shop, where my counselor could get her 50% off coffee for the day. It took two miles of walking to get an Americano for $1.25. Then we all sat around the fireplace and talked about our lives before they became trainwrecks and how we could move forward out of denial and into acceptance. Tomorrow we will do team building exercises. I think it will include a relay race around town with a group scavenger hunt and prizes! I want to win because I like winning. I haven't really been social, there are some nice people in my program but they don't seem very talkative.

I snuck a picture of some of them while we took our walk.

It was a long trip, but I made it.

Omg it was a long trip.

My plan backfired. I tried to get out of going to rehab by hiding in the garbage. It was a pretty good setup actually. I got all the tasty tidbits, I learned that people waste a lot of tasty tidbits.

I was discovered when my roommates opened the garage to take out the garbage. They're slobs and take out the garbage maybe once every month so I thought I would be safe for at least three weeks.

I was wrong.

When they found me two weeks later I thought I had finally evaded my responsibility. But no they said I still had to go and instead of taking the airplane I had to hitch a ride with some people they found on craigslist. They were nice enough, they let me eat tater tots during the ride, but it was like a crazy person lived in the van. They let me hitch a ride, I was greatful.


I am so tired now. I can't eventype. I promise to write more about this rehab business. It is weird. that is all I can say.
