Sunday Morning


Yesterday I went to a different meeting.  Then I went to a different priest for confession!  It was a radical day.  Going to the different meeting was OK.  I got treated like a visiting dignitary which is very creepy.  A few people there knew me, so they knew about my *eons* of sobriety, which was just goonie.  I think there is value in long-term sobriety - don't get me wrong.  But to think someone with a length of sobriety has all the answers is just ridiculous.  I have accumulated a pretty big collection of sober experiences and that is valuable, but I could have a drink tomorrow just like anyone else.  I am pretty sure I am not going to drink today though!  

Then I went to a different priest to go to confession.  I get self-conscious about confessing the same things over and over again.  Maybe this time will be different?  I know that I like my parish priest a lot better, so I will just suck it up and go back there the next time.

I went shopping for stuff to wear to a party last night.  This shopping has got to end.   I have spent a lot of money in the last week.  A new bag for my trip.  Binoculars for my trip.  A pair of yoga pants for my trip.  A new cute top to go with the yoga pants.  A new metal water bottle, so I don't get poisoned from plastic ones.  A new purse.  A new wallet.  A new pair of high heeled sandals (yay!)  A new blouse.  A new lipstick.  And probably other things I have forgotten. 

And now, to church.  Then the granddaughters are coming over while all of their relatives who are not in rehab or on a backpacking trip will be on the golf course.  Then my son is coming over for Sunday Dinner.  

Who could even imagine this would be my life today?  It is wonderful.

Sounds like a great day! Love the "radical change" in your life...LOL, different meeting, different priest. Change is good so they say but so is comfort. Change is a nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there.

I've been shopping too. The change in weather just makes me want to wear new clothes and have new pillows.
