Morning After

Last night was truly wonderful.  I LOVE having a home full of alcoholics!  There was lots of food, lots of fellowship, and lots of phone calls!  A couple of guys were kind enough to stay after everyone left to help with the phone calls and I was grateful for that.  Usually everyone files out at 8 o'clock, and you are left alone to handle the one or two calls you might get.  Not so last night.

It was good.  I didn't get enough sleep last night because one drunk got my phone number when I called him back and decided to call much later.  I finally turned off my phone because my "shift" was over at 11.  I know there are some people who love getting the calls in the middle of the night, but I am not one of them.  If you have a crisis at 4 a.m., please call me, because I will be awake - but midnight?  not so much.  Oh - and he wasn't having a crisis and did not want help - he just wanted to argue with me because he believed my phone was getting all of his wife's voice mail - very very crazy.

Today will largely be spent at church.  It is Palm Sunday, I will go to Mass at my church this morning.  Then I will spend the afternoon at my confirmation sponsee's church, rehearsing for her confirmation.  

Hopefully I can get home at some point and take a very long nap.

I hope you all have a great sober Sunday.

I love that "morning after" thing too.

Thanx again for your service - seems to have worked well since it sounds like you're sober today...

God bless you for having Night Watch. It is vital and important. I am sorry about "crazy drunk" and the voicemail thing. Bill W. was right, you cannot reason with someone in the middle of a toot. Hope he calls back when he is ready. Have a wonderful Palm sunday. It is a day of inspiration and joy, and now that you are totally exhausted, serenity. LU J

Mary, I am so glad to see all those show-pairings at your door! And since everyone there was sober, they probably put on their own shoes before leaving.

It's Sunday 3 PM (1 PM CO time) and we just arrived home--6 PM mass, then make a few phone calls--Had a wonderful weekend. Sounds like you did also.

And just how was your phone getting all her voice mails? Come on, spill the beans!

I don't like really late phone calls because they rev me up nor do I like really early morning ones. But I still take them when sponsees call. It just wrecks my sleep if late at night. Glad that it all went well. I bet every slice of that pie was eaten.

Oooops! I thought this was a new blog, like 'Monday happiness' or something like that?!!!

Sorry--I'll wait....patiently, of course.
