Saturday Morning

I have been up most of the night. But I am still looking forward to the day. It is the first day of a three day weekend, and I feel the weekend stretching endlessly before me. I can take a nap this afternoon. I am going to a 6:30 meeting this morning, and then I will hit the gym. I will come back home and rake those leaves. Tonight one of my groups is having night watch, so I will head over there after church. It is usually a great deal of fun. We answer the phones for the Denver Central Office of AA, we have a potluck dinner, and some good fellowship.

I hope some time this weekend to work on my blog. My links are in serious need of updating. I would also like to change my template, but the last time I did that I really regretted it.

"AA is a spiritual program and a spiritual way of life. Even the first half of the First Step, ' we admitted we were powerless over alcohol,' is a spiritual experience. An AA member needs more than physical capabilities; he needs the use of his full faculties as a human being to hear the message, to think about it, to review the effects of the past, to realize, to admit, and to accept. These processes are activities of the mind, which is part of the spirit." -- Came to Believe, p. 3 (thanks for reminding me of this great book in your HNT picture daave.)

your welcome

If you need any help changing your template, good luck. It took me over a year to figure out how to change mine (at the top). LOL

It sounds like you have a fun weekend ahead of you! I don't know how you can be so active. I'm a total sleepy-head.

That's why y'all have people like Sober Chick and me to help. But you HAVE TO ASK FOR HELP. Sheesh! Thought you oldtimers knew that by now! LOL :D

Seriously, I'll be happy to help you, MC. The VERY MOST IMPORTANT THING to remember is to save a copy of your current template BEFORE making any changes. Just go into the textarea box where the template code is displayed and highlight ALL the code, do CTRL C to copy it to your computer clipboard, and then paste it into Notepad or MS Word or some other text editor and SAVE it. That way, you'll have it if everything gets screwed up, and it will also be a lot easier to paste in your current links and any features you've added in the past.

Just email me if you want or need more help. I can send you my phone number via email if you'd rather actually talk it through, too.

Hey Thanks Designer Girl! I will probably take you up on that!

That's a nice bit of service to do. But what is a 'potluck lunch'?

I forget about my "americanisms"... a potluck is a meal where everyone brings something. And then you basically eat whatever arrives. Sometimes wonderful, sometimes strange. AA potlucks usually involve the guys (and some gals) stopping at the grocery store and buying a cake. So you have 45 bags of tortilla chips, salsa, and 5 cakes! I bought apples, and I am going to bake an apple pie this afternoon - right after my nap!

I just love it, have we forgot to ask for help? I like your rose. The apple pie sounds wonderful. Some people there are in for a real treat.

The pot luck sounds fun.

I am so tired I am staying in bed and hitting everyone else's blogs today.

When I changed my template I took all my links and copied them into notepad so I would not have to worry about redoing all that work.
