Chicken Soup

I am so grateful that I made up a big pot of chicken noodle soup (with homemade noodles!)  in August and froze some of it.  I am still sick with this cold, and will enjoy a steaming hot bowl of homemade soup.  Fortunately, today I had nothing on my schedule since I had planned to take today off to drive to the western slope.  Since both of us are sick, there will be no drives going on today.   But I was able to stay home today, and I am glad.  

Yesterday I attended an all day training.  Imagine my chagrin as I sat through "infection control" training while blowing my nose, coughing, and being a general snot-fest.  Equally uncomfortable was the training on "pandemic flu."  I am glad to be at home alone today, not sharing my germs.

I will get to a meeting tomorrow.  I may meet with one of my sponsees tonight.  

I am grateful that I am sober and don't have to feel guilty about staying home from work.  It took many years of sobriety before I could do this comfortably.

Have a great week end, and be ready to tackle anything on Monday without being sick!

I had soup last night. I was chilled through and through. Hope that you enjoy your time recouping from the cold. I'm finally back home.

That soup looks good. I might just have to make some this weekend. I didn't used to like soup but the last few months I have been eating it and I love it. Isn't that weird? I never liked soup, even as a kid.

I hope you feel better you little snotty nosed thing you.

Soup looks delicious. I would need two of those tiny bowls full.

Sobriety also helps to relieve me of guilt for my many boo-boos. some times it takes an hour or so, but all gone then--those stupid words; spoken, written, thought, unthought, whatever. Our AA program teaches me to...to, well, to quote someone I know, to "Move on"! And help another.

One of the gifts of AA is that it has taught me to take care of myself. I now give myself permission to take care of me unlike the old days when I was trying to destroy me.
