Shorter week

Oh my goodness. Trying to get ready to take a vacation is a lot of work! I have a huge amount of work to do at work. It doesn't help that I have timed my vacation to coincide with the end of the fiscal year... so essentially I have taken a week off the end of my fiscal year and I need to have everything done by Thursday afternoon when I leave.

Also, I NEED green shoes, dammit! I cannot find the proper shade of green shoes! I may be forced to wear black shoes to my brother's birthday party in Savannah. Oh my. I have one more place to try for the proper hue of green shoes tonight. Last night, I purchased a new swimming suit.... something we women just love doing. Standing in a fitting room, looking at all the imperfections of our bodies. Thank God for the fact that I have been going to the tanning salon since January. A good tan hides many, many flaws.

I am going to go to the 6:30 a.m. meeting this morning, which I usually only do on the weekends. But I am concerned about getting my regular meetings after work this week, and I know I won't be at my regular meetings this weekend. I don't want to go off to a weekend with my family - who almost all drink a LOT - and not be "meeting'd up". Thankfully, one of my nieces is a sober member of Alcoholics Anonymous. I just love her and I cannot wait to see her. I think she has over 10 years now.

Green spray paint! Men are too funny! Good luck finding the shoes. I don't think I even have any green shoes in the shoe vault...maybe I should buy some just in case!

You know life isn't too bad when the worse of your concerns is finding a pair of green shoes!

OH No Mary not another pair of shoes! And the right hue of green. If you were dinking I could just see you looking for something about the hue of Mint Juleps. Well get meeting uped and if you get a chance go to at least one meeting while you are out of town. It is so much fun.

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