Better Now

Thanks for the nice comments. I appreciate it. I just met with my sponsee and we went through the tenth and eleventh steps. I am reminded that life is life and all is good. Even when things seem to be out of place, they really fit into a mosaic that I can't quite see yet.

I sat at my desk today and realized that I love my job. Wacky thought. I love my job. I am doing stuff I always dreamed of doing. Why don't I sit around and be grateful for that everyday? I am tired. I work with some true jackasses. However, I love my job and I am doing what I always wanted to do. How much better can you get than that?

Thanks to all you sober people. I can't begin to tell you how grateful I am for the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. I am grateful for all you sober bloggers as well as my other friends.

AA helped you get sober, and you violate the AA Traditions this way? This seems like typical (unrecovered) alcoholic self-centeredness.

Its all about YOU, is'nt?

Anonymous, I would gladly write about YOU, but you weren't kind enough to tell me who you are. I would appreciate, however, your elucidating which traditions I am breaking since you make such a grievous accusation.

Which traditions?

Nice.

I always try and remember that there is someone who loves those jackasses and think that they are the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Mary is this the same fast Eddie I am familiar with. I am so sorry to hear about that loss. He was always a kick.

Santa - yes, it is our beloved Fast Eddie. Shit! He was very very sick with emphysema and had two heart attacks recently and was very very depressed.

I was wondering how my neighbour could save a fortune on her credit cards. Now I too have the secret.
