Friday Morning

I slept for eight (8) blessed hours last night! I feel marvelous this morning!

I met with my co-teacher last night, and we sat in a great restaurant and graded papers. It was so much fun! I also got to ask her some questions about my job for which I have no other resources. That was also wonderful! The fact that she agreed with my assessment of several situations was doubly wonderful! The Ahi Tuna Sandwich with wasabi mayo and rosemary potatoes was triply wonderful!

It is Friday and all I have to do is work all day. I think I shall go to the pool and swim a half mile on my way home from work. Tomorrow I shall run 10 miles - which I am actually very excited about. I practically feel like I am on vacation because all I have to do is work for 8 hours today - on a full night's sleep! woo hooooooo!!!

Last night I spent over an hour on the phone with a former boyfriend who was recently arrested for stalking. There is a tiny part of me who would like to gloat over his misfortune, because he was not very kind to me at the end of our "romantic" relationship. I am glad I can get over that and just be a friend to him. I do not have to be in the same position as another to empathize with their pain. I can be a friend. Do I understand what would lead a person to do what he did? nope. Do I understand putting myself in ridiculous positions due to "decisions based on self which later placed us in a position to be hurt"? Yep. I am grateful I can be a friend.

Let's stay sober today, OK?

You're a good friend. Certainly a better woman than me.

I'm so glad you got some needed rest. Good for you!

I don't understand the stalking thing at all. Do people really think those behaviors are going to fix a foundering relationship? I guess insanity is difficult to recognize when you're in the middle of it. I know that's how it was for me when I was an active alcoholic.
