My sponsee and her partner had a candle party. I was going to purchase just enough to be polite to my friends... that cost a Ben Franklin. I did really like the things I ordered though and I am sure I will enjoy them. It was wonderful to be at her party. She is so very dear to me.
Tomorrow I am going to a meeting first thing and then the rest of the day is mine. I may just come home and go back to bed. Maybe I will read. Maybe I will go to church on Saturday night, or maybe I will wait until Sunday morning. Maybe I will bake a pie for night watch and maybe I won't. I don't have to do anything this weekend and for that I am truly grateful.
Work is kicking my butt right now. I don't mind working hard and I don't mind challenges, but dealing with the possibilities of this flu has been grim. And I had a huge disappointment at work - and I am going to do something I never do... I am going to "fight" it. I am going to write up a rebuttal this weekend. I thought I could just "let it go," but it isn't going, it is festering. So I will take the action that I can take and the rest will be out of my hands. I have learned that sometimes I have to do what I can do to come to peace with what I can't do.
And what I can do now is thank God for another sober day and go to bed. Very grateful for the flannel sheets I still haven't taken off the bed - it is 41º right now and cold and foggy. Good time to go to bed.
