Friday Night Post

Tomorrow morning I am chairing the 6:30 meeting, so I actually have to get there on time! I am leaving directly from the meeting to do my planned 15 mile run. I have a lot of getting ready to do before I can leave here tomorrow morning and I will not have time to post anything. So I thought I would post tonight.

I had a very productive day at work today. I am doing some creative stuff and it feels really good. I left work and went to the running store to get a new visor. Well, they know me in there, so they showed me a new running skirt and top. It is so dang cute, I just had to buy it. So now I have a new outfit to wear while running. And I will wear it for the marathon, I do believe.

When I got home, although I had planned to clean my house tonight, I decided it was too beautiful outside to be stuck indoors. I did something that makes my heart sing! I pruned trees, and rose bushes and cut back my lavender bushes. My neighbor came over and helped me with the big limbs I was cutting off an aspen tree. Oh, what a wonderful thing spring is. I love to be outdoors. And I love tending to living things.

I am so grateful to be a sober woman living where I live and how I live. What a miracle it is! So tomorrow I will perform my annual duty of chairing a meeting. I HATE chairing meetings. When I was new, I did it all the time, and it was good for me. Now I feel that when I chair meetings I am taking away that opportunity from a new person. So now I will go take a bath and put on my jammies and maybe watch a few minutes of TV before I slip between the sheets and sleep like a baby.

Nighty-Night everyone. I will let you know how my 15 miles goes tomorrow.

I am so glad you got to spend an evening doing good stuff. I'm now worried though that your arms will be sore while you are running. I must fret about something!
However, knowing you will be in the cutest outfit....sort of outweighs any negatives....don't ya think?
Be careful running!!!

Personally I believe that chairing meetings is about as good as it gets. Yes, it is good for the new comer, but it is also very good for the "old timer" or the "not so old timer".

Being of service at any point in sobriety is the greatest example to a new comer. Good For You. Now just run along in your new cut outfit. What color is it.

Just checking in and catching up. Getting things pruned is a good feeling. I like getting rid of the old dead branches. New growth will come.
