Saturday Afternoon

This is a picture from my run this morning. Although I felt like crap, I managed to run 8 miles. In record (slow) time. I then went to the grocery store and felt like I was going to be sick... it felt so much like a hangover - headache and nausea.

I woke up with the headache in the middle of the night and prayed it would go away. I got up early, ate a bowl of cereal and took some motrin - then I went to the 6:30 meeting. Hoping the headache would go away, but it didn't. I drove "to" my favorite park to run in, and drove around for almost an hour - and couldn't find it. This was disconcerting as I have lived in this town for almost 24 years and have gone to this park for that long... oh well. My head hurts so bad I am having cognitive impairment.. Anyway, I just drove to a park I knew I could find and ran my 8 miles.

Now I am going to make a chicken salad sandwich with the chicken I just bought at the store... and I am going to bed.

And I am planning on staying sober today. Which is more than I can say for some of the folks who were at the meeting this morning. I hate to see people I like go out and drink. Hate it, hate it, hate it. We had a great conversation after the meeting, if I weren't so sick, I would write about it. Maybe tomorrow.

I really enjoy your pics. I hate it too. We really do depend on each other more than we realize sometimes. I know a lady that had a friend, and they were sober together for over 17 years, she was devasted, but stayed sober herself. I will stay sober today too:)
