You know by Thursday evening, I am usually really tired. Tonight is no exception. I intend to go to bed really early and get up really early and go to church on my way to work tomorrow.
I am tired of the way my workplace has changed due to the threat of pandemic flu. I am tired of thinking about this. And you all can say it is a bunch of hype all you want, but this could get really really ugly, really really quick. Or it may not get ugly this round, but come back in a couple of months and really wreak havoc. My hands are taking a beating from all the washing and purell usage.
Today my daughter and I went to lunch. At noon on a Thursday afternoon, this shopping center was all but empty. We were literally the only people in the restaurant. We overheard a conversation between two waitresses, discussing where they were going to apply for jobs. We both laughed when we heard one tell another "yeah, but they make you take a drug test!" and the other one said "Oh." Like - well, too bad, that one is out!
I have no kids this weekend. I wish the weather was going to be better, I would head on out to the Western Slope and visit with my sponsor. But the weather is supposed to be bad - again - and I am not up for driving across the Continental Divide in uncertain weather. I have done that too many times in my life. Maybe I will find a way to relax and enjoy myself this weekend? It could happen! I have social events to attend both Friday and Saturday evenings. One at a sponsee's house, and one at a fellow member's house for a function my group holds once a month (I had it last month).
Sorry for my gloomy outlook tonight. I can still thank God that I am sober today, and I will ask Him for another day tomorrow... hope you join me.
