The folks on TV are talking about the "new" phenomena of people drinking hand sanitizer! It is 140 proof, and they are wondering WHY anyone would drink this horrible tasting and dangerous stuff! Why do alcoholics do anything they do? To non-alcoholic, sane people, it is beyond understanding I guess.
I woke up at 4:00 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday mornings. On Sunday, I went through the day with only 3 hours of sleep under my belt. It made for a long day, especially with a football game that was disappointing (to me), rambunctious grandchildren, and a daughter who likes to talk a lot and makes not much sense - but appears to be clean for the moment! But today? when I need to get to work? I slept until 7:00. I seem to be having some stomach issues this morning (details are being left out in consideration of my friends who read this) so I will proceed with my bath and getting dressed, but if this doesn't clear, I am not going to work.
I am glad this is a planned day off from running. Yesterday I ran five miles through not only snow and ice, but now because of the warm weather - we have puddles! Big honking puddles. My feet were soaked by the time I was done yesterday. The weather forecast for the week is warm weather, followed by SNOW on Friday. Please God, let this snow melt before we get more.
"the most compelling part of AA, the part that made me want to try this sober thing, was the laughter, the pure joy of the laughter that I heard only from sober alcoholics." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 333
