It's my wife Betsy's birthday today. Katie, my daughter, and I are taking her out to Miyabi for dinner tonight. Miyabi is our favorite Japanese steakhouse. We all look for reasons to go there. This seems like a darn good reason if you ask me. A sober celebration for me. That's unusual but I want it to become most usual indeed. Baby steps. I am so different when I'm sober. Nicer. Kinder. Less of a complete asshole. What a relief.
