Well, here it is again, my favorite time of the week. Saturday morning, when all of the weekend is stretched out ahead of me, looking like a blank slate full of endless possibilities. Today is packed with planned activities. Tonight is my 6:30 a.m. group's monthly night watch potluck dinner. It is at Robert's house... he had a party on December 28, and no one came because of severe weather. Tonight, we should all pile over there. I am greatly looking forward to it. I think I will bake a chocolate cake, because I usually make a pie (I hate to be predictable and boring), and because I don't particularly like chocolate cake... but others tell me mine is great. Update*** The dang cake fell!!! It is concave. I am too lazy to make anything else, so I guess I will bring it, but this may RUIN my baker's reputation... and of course, there is a MAN I try to impress... he always goes straight to whatever I bring... He asks "What did you bring MC?" and I tell him... regardless of what it is, he eats it first... cheesecake, apple pie, it matters not. It brings me great amounts of secret joy! What will he do when it is a concave chocolate cake?
I thought I would be forced to use the dreadmill at the gym this morning. However, it was 20 degrees at 5:00 a.m., so by 8 or so when I go out to run, it should be nice enough to run outdoors! Yay! Another update *** I ran 6.2 miles outdoors today, it was GLORIOUS!
Tomorrow there is a big football game to watch. I have a preference about who wins, so it should be fun to watch. The party that someone got manipulated into saying they would have never materialized, so it looks like I will be at home for the game... that is OK. I LOVE PRINCE and cannot wait to see what he does at half time. Update No.3 *** My daughter and granddaughters are coming over.... I shall see who else I can recruit!
"God willing, we members of AA may never again have to deal with drinking, but we have to deal with sobriety every day. How do we do it? By learning - through practicing the Twelve Steps and through sharing at meetings - how to cope with the problems that we looked to booze to solve, back in our drinking days." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, (4th ed.) p. 559
