For the Sake of Consistency

Just for the sake of consistency - I will post here this morning. I was taught early in sobriety that it was important to do what I say I am going to do. That it is a blessing if people actually come to rely upon me to do something consistently - because no one could count on me for anything when I was drinking. This runs counter to pop culture - that I should think only of myself and what I want. As a drunk, I have thinking about myself down to a science... what is tricky for me is to think of others.

I have been told by several people that they read my blog daily - I think that is an honor and a blessing. I have been having a problem with blogger and the comment feature is not working most of the time when I try to post a comment on someone else's blog... so if you haven't seen me around for a while, that is why. In fact - Blogger won't even let me get into the title section for this post, so it won't have a title. I guess you get what you pay for.

I went to the 6:30 a.m. meeting this morning, and I am off for a swim, bike ride, and run at a local reservoir. Training for the tri is in full swing now. Somehow while sitting in the meeting, I hurt my back. I am hopeful that swimming will loosen it up. I still don't feel 100% recovered from whatever I had on Thursday.

2. I, like you, have made sure I post every morning. The consistency is important to me.
3. OH I AM SO GLAD that your bug ran its course. Your body is so used to running that even a ick bug runs thru you fast :)
4. I have had no problems posting, but I did have some trouble this morning with my title.
5. I am feeling just a tad discouraged by the daily clicking of my blog buddies...and they have not posted...that is about ME.
6. I just miss people that I've grown accustomed to. I HATE CHANGE
7. Thank you for being there and being YOU.

MC, I'm glad to *see* you this morning. I'm getting ready to log off and go on vacation. Glad you're feeling better.

See? This is why my heart belongs to Wordpress. Ah, my other blogs are there....But it's fun posting here too.

:)

I am having problems still, too. I got a late start today, but I will continue to strive to be consistent.
