Yesterday I decided that perhaps some maintenance on my computer would be more appropriate than purchasing a new one. I did all that defrag stuff, and last night I was able to access my blog, etc. This morning, once again, I cannot. I think it is not really my computer that is the problem, I think it might be my DSL - provided by Qwest. I will call them today. I want a Mac, and impulse control is not my strongest asset. I was too busy to buy one yesterday and I am again today, so perhaps I won't have a Mac soon. We shall see. I want one! But I also NEED a new garage door.... but how sexy is that? Not at all.
Last night at the 5:30 meeting a woman was crying. She shared that she just discovered that her 15 year old daughter is addicted to meth. For a solid hour, we heard people share about their own experience with meth, or their own experience of watching a loved one on meth. It was one of the most depressing meetings I have attended lately. The fact that I have been going through this for the last 12 years (with my daughter) could have something to do with that. I thought it was interesting that out of all those people, I was the only one who suggested she go to Al-Anon. Al-Anon saved my life. I am so grateful for that wonderful program.
