It is a day set aside to honor those who have died protecting our country and our freedoms. It was called Decoration Day because it was intended that we would go decorate the graves of those who had died in wars. Now it is called Memorial Day and most people use it as a day off to kick off the summer season.
It is only 55 º today and it is cloudy and rainy (see above photo of my front porch today). I am not feeling the motivation to get out there and run or do anything else I normally would want to do on a day off. I went to a meeting this morning and then out for breakfast with the women from my group. It was nice.
Now I am talking on the phone with the guy I used to call "Mr. Sweetie Man" and typing this at the same time. Since all he talks about is himself, he doesn't even notice that I am not really paying 100% attention. Alcoholism is a wonderful disease, isn't it?
Glad that I am a sober alcoholic today. Glad I got to spend the day with my granddaughters and my son yesterday. Glad no one is worried about me getting drunk today.
