Be careful what you wish for...

Sometimes I think it would be nice to go out for dinner on Sunday afternoons instead of cooking for my son. He comes over almost every Sunday afternoon and I make something yummy for lunch. Sometimes the other kids come. Sometimes it is just me and my son.

Yesterday I told him I want him to take me out for lunch this week. So now it is 11:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, I should be making lunch and instead I am waiting for Kenny to come over and take me out for lunch. I think I much prefer the cooking and the fun involved in that... I really really love to cook.

It is a beautiful day. I got up at 5:00, hurried up and headed out for the pool and swam 1 kilomter. I had the pool to myself for most of the time. I took pictures of the sunrise and (may post them) DID POST THEM on my photo blog.

I am really boring. A friend just called and we talked for a while. She is not boring. She has a lot of chaos in her life, but she is sober and I am glad to be her friend. And it makes me grateful to be boring today.

I understand your thinking. I love my sober life. I used to think there would be nothing worse than living the life of a boring, straight-laced, sober, square. I used to think regular, everyday people were chumps, but I know now I was the chump. I almost lost my life over drugs and alcohol, the fun life…Do not get me wrong, I loved drugs and alcohol, but it just didn’t work for me like it once did. The square life is a good life today. I mean, squares do not go to jail on a regular basis and tend to keep jobs. Yes, I like boring too.

I'm convinced that's what serenity looks like.

I love being boring.
Had enough chaos - for 49 years.

Ditto Tracie. That is what serenity looks like. I'm glad to be 'boring' too! A friend of mine started a conversation with 'Drama, drama, drama! You know me!' and I do know her and I'm glad its not me!

I have to agree. I'll take boring any old day after the drama I had while drinking. Now, that's not to say that being sober is boring...in fact, most the time life's a lot more stimulating and exciting (for me, anyway).
