Sunday Morning

It's Sunday morning, I woke up too early. Could it have something to do with the fact that I went to bed at 8:00 last night? nah. I was watching a great football game and falling asleep on the couch, so I just went to bed. I am chronically tired right now.

It is because I am not getting my exercise. I am working too much. It is too cold, snowy, and icy outside. The gym is about to be too crowded. This time of the year is a challenge for me every year. I like winter - for about a month, and now that month is over - unfortunately, we still have three more months of winter.

I thought it was interesting yesterday that I just mentioned that "I have a thing about being late to meetings" and that spawned a bunch of comments about being late to meetings. I really don't care if other people are late - that is their thing. I just don't like walking into a meeting already in full swing. I don't even do it at work... and it is totally acceptable to do so at my workplace.

I am beginning to think that I have said every thing I ever had to say on this blog. I am extremely uninspired. I have three loyal readers in Houston and one in Denver - that is the main reason I am still blogging. I have more hits than ever, but that is mostly readership from searches for crazy shit ('hand sanitizer drunk' is one of the most recent). I am not going to stop blogging any time soon, but I feel that my writing is getting more and more inane by the day. I am tired and worn out and haven't been doing the stuff I need to be doing, so perhaps I will get inspired again after I start doing the stuff I need to be doing.

I am going out today to the Ethiopian Restaurant with my daughter. We both love the restaurant and seldom eat there. We decided we really want to eat there before we both get our noses back to the grindstone of diet and exercise after the first of the year. I am greatly looking forward to this meal today.

Every time you can't run...you get uninspired about blogging...just sayin. I think your running does more for your mental health than anything else.
PS: you need to watch Project Runway then you would love Tim also :)

I have never had Ethiopian food. I Googled it and didn't really find the answer.

Don't worry about the inspiration, it will return in its own good time. Until then I will continue to enjoy your writings. Promise.

And what, just because I'm from a blue state means I'm chopped liver??? You do have a loyal reader in Massachusetts. I have been inspired by you even when you're uninspired:)

My Dad had a horrible joke about Ethiopian restaurants. Dare I repeat it?

You guys are too cute.

The first time I went to this Ethiopian Restaurant was in the 80s, with a date... he pulled up to the restaurant and I thought it was a joke because Ethiopia was in the midst of a horrible famine at that time. But, oh man, is that food good!!!

In my way of thinking, being alive is inspiration enough.
Like me, you're a creature of routine and order. When that gets upset, I get really uncomfortable. But you guys told me something I had better NEVER forget --
This Too Shall Pass.

(you gave me an idea for my list tomorrow)

A happy and peaceful and sober 2008 to you. And don't stop blogging...

And you have a reader from Canada. Keep on blogging! Your continuing sobriety is an inspiration.

This Chicago gal would be very sad if you stopped blogging -- even if it feels like nothing new to you, it's thoroughly reassuring to hear about the daily happenings in the life of someone who's stayed admirably sober for so very long.

Kathy Lynne said...

Okay, I'll tell you. How do you order in an Ethiopian Restaurant? Lay on the floor and beg....Ta dum. I told you it was horrible:)

Barbra said...

And the loyal reader from West Virginia says please keep writing about being sober and going to meetings and what goes on at meetings.
Have a happy, joyous and free 2008.
