Where'd my blog go?

All day long my blog was gone. In the morning I just didn't have time to even think about it. But by the time I got home from work, I really felt like I needed to blog. Weird that something so new can feel like a NEED!

I had a fairly eventful day at work and I really wanted to talk to someone after it was over. I couldn't get hold of my sponsor, and everyone else I called wasn't around. So I went to the grocery store and purchased a T-bone steak and that is what I am going to have for dinner. Anyone who doesn't have an eating problem will not understand what eating a steak has to do with having a trying day, but I do.

What makes me so sad is that this day was actually one for the "win" column. But no one cares. I have no one to "high five" me. And the leadership at my organization is so dysfunctional, I just got on their nerves as I was trying to accomplish something huge today. And I "got 'er done!"

It's OK. I am OK. Every now and then God sees that I have no one 'with skin on' to talk to. I do believe it is a God thing. But then again, what isn't?

It is snowing outside. I am tired. It is a good night to have a steak with mushrooms, baked potato, and a Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper.

I kind of know the feeling that "no one cares." At the same time, do you simply feel that way because no one is answering their phone? hmmmmmm, think about that.

Anyway, the steak sounds good (not sure about that drink though). And the blog has returned from cyber-rest. So, there ya go.

I have never seen anything like this before and I think it is wonderful. I started recovery at 30 years old and been in AA and sober 28 years. That makes me 59. Regular attendance, 2 or 3 a week, at meetings sponsoring new comers and regular social contact with other recovering people had provided me a wonderful life till I started driving truck a few years ago. Now I am lucky to get to 2 meetings a month and phone calls just aren't the same as getting together for coffee and conversation. My home group is in Duluth MN and meets on thursdays. We meet in a church basement. I have been looking for something to add a boost to my attitude and maybe this is it. If you don't mind I will make your blog a favorite and return as regularly as I can to say hi and eves drop on your life. Georgeb

Thanks for the welcome. I don't know a thing about this but I think I will check it out. Got to the meeting tonight and then coffee and pie at Perkins till 11:30. It is so nice to feel at home and to laugh with my friends.
Have a great day. GeorgeB
