I am finally acclimating to being on vacation - just in time to go back to work! I slept until 7:30 this morning. It was nice, but really after a week or so off work, I realize (again) that I really need the structure and socialization that my workplace provides. I will be happy to get back to work on Monday.
Last night on my way to the 5:30 meeting, I decided I really didn't want to go to the meeting (I had already been to one meeting earlier in the day) and instead I called my oldest sponsee and asked her if she would like to have dinner with me. We went out and had big steak dinners, it was lovely. I was starved after a day of running around starting at 4:30 a.m.!
Tomorrow I am participating in a free run sponsored by the marathon folks. The half-marathon is only a little over 2 weeks away. Saturday's run will be my last long run before the race.... and I think the race will be my last long run for a loooooong time. I am so done with running. I cannot wait to train for the triathlon - I will concentrate on biking and swimming for a while, and then I will have to throw in some running again eventually.
Today I will work in my yard and then go to a meeting tonight... I will finish the book I have been reading all week. It is a good one. I am boring today. Sorry. I even looked through my site meter to see if there were any interesting searches that landed someone at my blog. The only one even slightly interesting was "why do alcoholics think everyone is nice?" I don't even get that one... I think, as a group, we are pretty distrustful and don't think anyone is nice... until we get a little nicer and trustworthy ourselves.
"How did I eliminate my problems? I mean, I had so many problems for such a long time. Where did they go? The short (but somewhat mysterious) answer is: the Third Step swept them away. I turned my will and my life over to the care of God, as I understand Him." -- Jim P., Santa Monica, CA - AA Grapevine, May 2007, p. 53
