Happy Birthday to dAAve!

One of my very favorite people anywhere on earth is celebrating 4 years of continuous sobriety today. Please go over and wish dAAve a happy birthday.

I am going out for a run in spite of lingering pain from pulling weeds on Monday (who knew that pulling weeds for 2 hours would cause such pain and agony?)

I will then come back home and bathe and dress as becomingly as I can, to go off to work. Once there, I will put a smile on my face, greet the people I come in contact with, go to the meetings that are on my agenda for today, and work at some major projects in the meantime. I will give my best for 8 hours.

When I leave there at the end of the day, I will go to a 5:30 meeting. I will get to see many people I love and see what is going on with them.

Then I will come home again and see what is going on here. It is so unusual for me to have someone living with me, that the concept of things going on at home while I am not here is really an unusual and fun idea.

Have a great sober 24 everyone.

I used to smoke weed, but I'm not much into "pulling them". With my son living at my house right now, it's really weird when my cell phone rings and it says "home". I think immediatly....how is "home" calling me, when I'm right here?
:) Enjoy your wednesday Ms. Ben Gay needing Mama.

Being convinced, I was at Step One.

It sounds like a great day. I would be looking forward to that meeting at 5:30 and being with those that you love and who love you back.

I hope if I read you often enough I will someday go out for a run or maybe even a walk..okay, a stroll. ANYTHING! But usually I end up on my porch swing with a book:) Sounds like a good day. Keeping it simple.
