I didn't wake up in time to meet my sponsee at the meeting. We hadn't talked about meeting this week, but we meet every week... so it is an implied appointment. I was in bed most of yesterday, and I feel just slightly brain dead today.
I did get up long enough to get a manicure and pedicure because when I have a migraine, for some reason, I am convinced that a pedicure will make me feel better. Actually, it usually does - the migraine doesn't go away, but there is comfort in a pedicure.
And I am going to buy a new camera. Mine is 5 years old. It isn't charged this morning when I wanted to take a picture of my purple toenails. It won't hold a charge anymore. And when I look at others' cameras, it makes me realize that mine is almost as dated as an 'instamatic'.
Today I should be able to finance my car. I have leased a new car every 18 months to 2 years since 1999. In 2005, I leased a new Volkswagen Passat. I tried to trade it for a Prius 2 years ago, thank God it wasn't feasible at that time because I would rather walk than drive a Prius at this stage (with the political baggage a Prius carries). I have grown to love my Passat and I hope to drive it into my old age. I need to finance the residual - and actually have a bank and VW credit fighting over me! (Believe me, no one ever fought to finance anything for me when I was drinking - or in early sobriety.)
Last night I went to Confirmation practice with my confirmation sponsee. It was very touching to be sitting there beside her - the only adult in this sea of 11th graders. This is a very wonderful experience for both of us. I am so grateful that she chose me to be her sponsor, and she is grateful that I am willing to do all this stuff with her. I keep telling her it is my pleasure, and it truly is. Tomorrow night we get our feet washed... and surely this was on my mind when I got a pedi yesterday.
I am scattered all over the place today. A migraine is a very weird thing. The pain is gone, which is almost euphoric, but I know that my brain is just not functioning right. I can live with that though.
Praise God! I get to be sober again today. And I am not alone.
