Rainy Tuesday

It is pouring rain outside. But it could be pouring snow, which it is just a few miles to the west. I hope it stays over there.

This morning I give my quarterly report to Governing Body. I will be so happy when this is over. I got my request to take next week off approved yesterday. AND yesterday I had my performance evaluation, and got the highest rating level, which pleases me. I am so glad I sat down and wrote up what I needed to - even though it was torture when I did it.

Last night after the meeting, a woman asked me to be her sponsor. I did something I have never done before... I told her I had too many people already, and I couldn't take one more. I still want to call her and tell her I will sponsor her. It goes against my grain to say no to someone who is asking for help, but I have been absolutely overwhelmed with the number of women I am sponsoring right now.

I had an e-mail yesterday from Houston. I am so excited about my upcoming trip. I went and bought some clothes yesterday - and I think I am going to return them today! I have no idea what to wear in Texas - I think it isn't likely to snow there? But a flannel shirt still may be in order?

Sweetie, just plan on it being warm here. Spring/summer couture will be just fine. Unless you are a lesbian, you can leave the flannel at home.

Scott took the words right out of my mouth. Give 'em back, Scott.

The temps will be in the mid-60's to mid-80's.

Great news about your performance rating. Regarding sponsoring, there is a person that I know who sponsors over 30 people. I wonder at the effectiveness of that. It's like being in a class in which you need opera glasses to see the professor. Not my cup of tea.

Don't return the clothes, give yourself a gift for the great evaluation!!! I love that you were able to say no and take care of MC first!
Love you MC

LOL...the only place we see flannel shirts is in the movies, or at Lambda ;)
We are in capri's and shorts, sandles and flip flops during the day. Jeans and T's at night.
