Nothing Notable

It's Wednesday Morning. It is not a running day. It is not an anything notable day. I think I have only one meeting to attend at work today... but I have a massive project I have to complete today, which I didn't know until yesterday.

I met with my long term sponsee with long term sobriety last night. She came into my house, got on her knees, wrapped her arms around my waist and begged me to go out for pizza with her. It was actually quite cute, and we did go have pizza.

Tonight I will meet with the sponsee with 60 days who I was so harsh with last week. She has actually been going to meetings every day since then. And when she shares in the meetings, she talks a great deal about her sponsor, which I find embarrassing.

Update on my daughter: She is clean and sober 18 days today. She is going to meetings every day. She gets there by bus, which I respect so much. She is turning back into the wonderful young woman I not only love, but I really, really like.

"Once more: The alcoholic at certain times has no effective mental defense against the first drink. Except in a few rare cases, neither he nor any other human being can provide such a defense. His defense must come from a Higher Power." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 43

Any sober day is notable in my book. Congrats to your daughter.

Your sponsee mentions you because she is sober.

It sounds notable to me. Good luck on the massive project. I'm doing that myself today and have another due Monday. I'm glad for you and your daughter. The sponsee stories made me smile. I think mine is neat also. It is a legacy that I am mindful of because he was taught by another who was taught by another and so on. What a lineage.

I am so glad your daughter is doing okay. It sounds like you are doing a good job of of staying supportive, but not trying to 'fix' her.

Double wow,

I feel like crap that I have not been keeping up on the blogs. I guess I gotta go read the past few weeks to catch up.

let me know if you are coming down this way for a meeting. My morning routine without a job is sporatic, but I need to improve.

So MC, you title your post "Nothing Notable" and then elicit a Wow! from dAAve and a Double Wow from me.

I went back and read a weeks worth of posts.
You Rock Gal!
