Last weekday with "normal" time

I really dislike the change to daylight savings time. It won't be getting light outside until almost 7 a.m. next week - and that is far too late to be heading out for a 4 or 5 mile run (that is, if I expect to get to work before 10 a.m.) It will all work out within a month or two, but that is a month or two when I need to be stepping up my mileage, in preparation for the half-marathon which is now less than 2 months away.

Last night another woman asked me to sponsor her. She is sober a few days, her sobriety date is March 4... I told her that is a GREAT sobriety date, you know, March Forth... she thought that was great... I hope she keeps the sobriety date because I hope she stays sober. I am now sponsoring 4 women, which is two over my limit. I think I am veering dangerously close to ego stroke-ville. On the other hand, I thank God for these women because they are helping me immensely.

Tonight I am going to pick up my granddaughter from my ex-husband's house and bring her to my house for an overnight. Since she moved in with him I haven't seen her much. This is probably due to the fact that I did not want to get on the phone and call him. But I did that yesterday and it was fine. We talked for about a half hour.

I better head out of here for my run.. have a great Friday everyone.

"To me, AA is within the reach of every alcohohlic, because it can be achieved in any walk of life and because the achievement is not ours but God's. I feel that there is no situation too difficult, none too desperate, no unhappiness too great to be overcome in this great fellowship - Alcoholics Anonymous." -- Alcoholics Anonymous (3rd ed.) p. 395

For some reason, time changes ahve never bothered nor affected me. Of course, I don't run in the morning. Or afternoon. Or night.

Have a great weekend!!

Good to read your posts. I enjoy running too and get out whenever I can. You sound strong in mind and body.
