Wednesday


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.

I like your brain on what ever level it is functioning. Sweet girl.

I do not get my feet washed, thank God. I'm busy playing the violin during that time. (Thank you, Mom, for making me practice!)

I like the photo, and no, I an NOT one of "those"...I don't think?

I like the feet with toes polished. I hope that you get de-fogged for re-financing and the camera purchase. Check out the Nikon D90 if you want a sweet camera. It's astounding.

I hope you fully recover from your migraine in time to fully participate in what's next in your life...

Peace...

Have you ever tried Reflexology on your feet? The wonders it can do! I think the Chinese have some of this right. May even help your migraines. J.

Never in my life have I had a pedicure. Do men DO that? There's a lot I do not know about the social graces.

Just felt like Double Dipping....
