Lazy Friday

I don't feel like running this morning! I don't feel like riding my bike either. I guess I could feel happy that I do actually feel like taking a bath and getting ready for work, and that is probably exactly what I will do. This laziness is an unusual feeling for me, and I don't much like it. Aha! I know! I will try to get to work a bit early, so I can go for a swim on my way to the 5:30 meeting tonight. There, thanks for helping me think this one through.

Last night at the 5:30, two of my recently former sponsees raised their hands. One was sitting next to me, she has reached out to me and I have been happy to have been there to support her. The other was sitting across the room. She has not reached out to me, which is fine, but she had also been speaking ill of me (me! ME! Of all people!) in AA meetings prior to starting drinking again. I hope she can get sober, and I really hope she can find someone else to work with her.

I was on the phone too late last night. A day that lasts from 3:15 a.m. til 10:30 p.m. is much too long for me! I am a little tired today, but I am sure I will get going, once I get going.

"Even so has God restored us all to our right minds. To this man, the revelation was sudden. Some of us grow into it more slowly. But He has come to all who have honestly sought Him." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 57

p.s., I have been having a hard time posting comments, so if it looks like I haven't been around for a day or two, this is why. Is anyone else getting stuck with endless popup "do you want to display non-secure items?" that won't go away?

I have lots of adjectives for you...none of which are LAZY. Enjoy your friday...girly girl
PS: I've always seen that pop up, it's not new for me :0

YES! That was what my email last night was about! It was endless and it was a race to close that popup and then close the comment window. Today it seem to be fine.

If I lived life at the pace you do, I would welcome a lazy morning. There are days when all I need to do is rest. Gotta take care of ourselves.

It seems to be Friday.

I have needed to "ctrl-alt-delete" to get out of the endless popup - you can't close it, it won't go away. And you can't leave a dang comment!

Mary A, alcoholic, newly sober at 104 days. You're one of my virtual blogging 'sponsors' and I hang on every word you write. No pressure!

Always a pleasure to read your blog. Especially when it doesn't make me feel so slothful.

I just hit enter on the secure/nonsecure popup and it dissapates into a mist...

But what do I know?

The key there is "won't go away", and it's back this morning. Although for the moment it is letting me comment.

Good for you listening to your body and taking it easy in the morning. It is a good way to start the weekend.
