As I shoveled the snow in my driveway this morning I couldn't help but remember falling on this very driveway last December 20. It was an injury that stayed with me until June. I am seriously considering training for a marathon (26.2 miles) in 2008, I do not want to be injured!

The pressure is still on at work. But the power isn't. (Lack of power, that was our dilemma?) I am going to stay home until 8:30 or 9:00 this morning, in hopes that the power will be back on by the time I get there. It is cold and snowing like crazy... see above photo, taken in my back yard on this very morning.

I am grateful to be alive and sober this morning. I wanted to get to the step study this morning, but adding in a half hour of snow shoveling made that impossible. Tonight I meet with a sponsee, that will be good.

Have a great sober Tuesday everyone.

Hopefully your office won't be cold since there's no power. I think that I would go back to bed and watch the snow from a window.

I know that snow can be a hassle but I am hoping hoping hoping for a white Christmas this year. Dec 26 will mark one year since John's father passed. His father use to play Santa and it would be so great. Like he was making it happen. I know I am silly. What can I say.

You run that marathon woman. You do it! I have NO doubt you can do it.

Happy and sober Tuesday to you too.

The worst thing about losing power is having no electricity!
