I am so lazy this morning. It is 7:00 a.m., I am still in my jammies, I haven't run - although I had intended to. Yikes. I think I will cut myself some slack this morning and honor my body - which is telling me to do nothing! I am going to wear jeans to work today, so getting dressed will be easy.
Then tonight I am going to the Colorado State AA Convention! It is always fun to see people I haven't seen in years or decades. I am hoping to catch up with Motorcycle Mike tomorrow, and hopefully Karen B. For anyone else who may be at the Convention in Denver, I hope to meet you!
I am loath to type the words 'lipid panel' here, sensing that my blog may come up when people are trying to find out about cholesterol and triglycerides... however, I want to say that I got the results of my blood test last night. I am thrilled to report that all of my levels are good! I got a low triglyceride level probably for the first time in my life! I remember the first time I ever heard that term was when a doc was telling me that my level was high - at the age of 21. So all this running and not eating sugar or white stuff seems to be working. Happy!
Speaking of searches... sometimes it breaks my heart to see the searches that lead people to my blog. A recent search was: "if i leave my husband will he stop drinking." A lot of "how can i tell if i am an alcoholic." I think the one that comes up at least once a day is "hungry, angry, lonely, tired." And some are just funny... this week one person got to my blog as a result of the search for "how many calories in a drop of sweat?" So I do get concerned about the words and phrases I use because they do come back to haunt me. I think I used the F word once in this blog and yet someone found me by searching "f*** Mary" - that was charming.
OK, it is now 7:17, and I am sitting here like I have nowhere to be today... and thank God I have somewhere to go where they pay me to be there! They actually expect me to come in at a reasonable hour and stay most of the day! That is a great deal for a recovering alcoholic!
"It is not to be expected that an alcoholic employee will receive a disproportionate amount of time and attention. He should not be made a favorite. The right kind of man, the kind who recovers, will not want this sort of thing. He will not impose. Far from it. He will work like the devil and thank you to his dying day." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 149
