Finally! A Friday Off!!

I have been threatening to take a Friday off forever.  This week it finally became possible.  And now I have a four (4) day weekend to look forward to!  Yipeeee!  And this year, Memorial Day is back to being a long weekend or a nice holiday.  Last year it was extremely painful with my son in Iraq.  Oh, how it hurt to think of all the young men and women who have died in wars.  I will fly my flag this weekend and remember the dead in a much more comfortable abstract way.  

I had a glorious day yesterday.  I got to spend the day with a couple of women I really respect and enjoy.  The fact that I have tons to learn professionally from them both didn't hurt either!  And on the way back, I got my colleague to stop at the Coach store at the outlet mall and I purchased a new purse and wallet.  Woo Hoo!  

When I got home, in the mail was the last piece of official documentation I sent for back in March.  Now I can proceed with the rest of the paperwork for the annulment in the Catholic Church of my first marriage.  I wrote for three hours last night and finished maybe one third (1/3) of the questionnaire.  It was hard, but it was good.  I was crying and had to stop because it was too draining. I actually wrote a post about it last night and then woke up at 3 a.m., and deleted it.  

I am going to call work in a little while and see if I can come in and meet with my boss for about 15 minutes to discuss something with him.  This one falls into the category of "Have we kept something to ourselves which should be discussed with another person at once?" (Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 86)

Have a Great Sober Friday Everyone!!!

Three hours of writing and only one third the way through? Gah!

How does annulment work? I have absolutely no understanding of that.

I am reminded of the last line in Step Twelve.
