Friday Morning

It's 32 degrees, but the snowstorm we were expecting took a turn to the south, so at least we don't have the foot and a half of snow that we might have had. I ran last night after work (and before the 5:30 meeting) in anticipation of not being able to get out for a day or two.

I have got a cold and feel pretty miserable. I am hoping to have a quiet weekend at home. My two daughters and two granddaughters are going to spend the weekend together - but not here. I really need some serious down-time. I have so many major things going on at work, I still haven't done my taxes, my house is a disaster area, I am in the middle of a 4th step inventory, etc. But I would dearly love to spend Saturday in bed. We shall see what happens...

"Now that we're in AA and sober, and winning back the esteem of our friends and business associates, we find that we still need to exercise special vigilance. As an insurance against 'big-shot-ism' we can often check ourselves by remembering that we are today sober only by the grace of God and that any success we may be having is far more His success than ours." -- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 92

Take care of yourself. Other than the taxes, it sounds like you need a weekend to just relax. You can clean anytime.
