Friday Night

I thought I would try something radical and post at night instead of the morning. I have school tomorrow. I am a tad resentful about this. I want a weekend off. I want to go to the meeting tomorrow morning. I am also very conflicted about all of this. I wanted to teach. I was excited about it. I actually like it - when I am there. But I don't like adding another day of work to my week.

I just went to a potluck dinner with the women of my AA group. It was fun. It was nice to sit around on a Friday night with so many people I love. Don't get the wrong idea - some of them I am not really that fond of, but I really really love them.

One of them told me tonight that a new guy said today that he really wishes I was at the meeting more often (that makes at least 2 of us!) because he always gets so much out of what I say in the meeting. My friend offered that I am hysterically funny about 80% of the time, and the other 20% of the time things suck. She said that is how she can tell that the 80% is the real truth. That was high praise.

I don't think my funnyness comes through in this blog. That is always the first thing that people notice about me - my sense of humor. So I have found through this blog that I am OK without much humor. That is good news.

I am a tired, worn out sober alcoholic woman. I am a runner who hasn't run in 10 days. I have not been to a meeting since Monday. I have a long distance relationship I don't talk about - but due to weather I haven't seen him since Christmas Day.

But as I said this morning, This Too Shall Pass.

"some of them I'm not really fond of but I love them". That's it precisely. I hope something or someone makes you laugh today.

Oh my pooped out little navy bean (cuz navy beans give you gas and gas is ALWAYS funny)
I'm thinking of you.

I know a sponsor who might suggest a 4th step regarding your first paragraph.

Get to a meeting first though.

Gas IS funny!

I don't care when you post, as long as I get to read you every day.

I love me some navy beans with ham hocks and cornbread!

My sponsor just keeps telling me I need to have some FUN. I agree.

I agee with the suggestion of fun! It seems like many of us are going through the same thing. By the way, you triggered a key lime pie craving in me. Now where the heck am I supposed to find key lime pie in Ohio, in the middle of winter?

Mary Christine said...

You make it! Key lime pie is the easiest thing on earth! Buy a bottle of "Nellie and Joe's" key lime juice and follow the directions on the bottle.

AA taught me that I don't have to like everyone but I do have to love them. That comes thru in your statement. Have a great day.
