Why is blogger in Italian today? Honestly, why? It is freaking me out! The commenti, visualizza blog, modello, impostazioni, etc. Why?
---- note: Somehow my language setting got changed to Italian. Do you know how hard it is to figure out how to change the language when everything is written in a language you don't understand? But I figured it out. Just didn't want you all to think I am delusional....---
This is my 301st post. I just started this blog on a lark - to communicate with another blogger I had found on my other blog - who I discovered was a recovering alcoholic - and I didn't want to put the fact that I am a sober member of Alcoholics Anonymous on the blog that is all about politics, religion, etc.... all the stuff I am real careful about because of the tenth tradition. So I started an anonymous blog... just to be an alcoholic. Wow. I thought I would take it off after a couple of days. Little did I know this would be one of the coolest things to happen to my sobriety. I love sober bloggers and blogging and the whole thing. Thanks y'all. Oh, and I haven't posted anything on my 'other' blog for probably six months. Who cares about all that stuff when there is AA to talk about?
I just ran 3 miles in 31:20. I am tired of training. I am heading into my taper week, so my big training is done after Sunday. Then the race is next Sunday. I am really looking forward to it.
Last night my sponsee and her partner took me out for dinner. I had a huge steak and baked potato, etc. Yummy. It was nice to see them. It was nice to be at the meeting and kind of process a little bit more about Noel's death. People are really shook up about it. I haven't written about the circumstances and probably won't... but it was very upsetting to very many people. There are lots of people who wonder why they stood by and watched this train wreck in process. I believe everybody did all that they could to help everybody involved, but sometimes it just isn't enough. You cannot get someone sober. You cannot keep someone sober.
I am going to be SO late for work today. I was up half the night, and fell back to sleep at about 4. So I didn't wake up this morning until 5:30. That is far too late for me to get a 3 mile run done, and get ready for work on time.
