Looking forward


We have had 7 weekends in a row when the weather was not conducive to outdoor activities, due to insane amounts of snow or rain.  It looks like we are going to now have a dry and pleasant weekend!  

I am picking up my daughter tonight after work and she is going to spend the weekend here.  It is always a wonderful mystery about what will happen when my daughter is around.  I just know that things happen wherever she goes.  And I actually enjoy watching that - from a short distance.  

I am grateful that I am no longer the one who drama follows closely.  I am pretty predictable and boring.  And that is good.   It was not always this way.  

I think I am going to "get after it" and get to work - I have a lot to get done before a deadline next Friday.  

So - let's stay sober today, OK?

In sobriety I have been forced to be a lot more spontaneous than is comfortable. It's a learning thing for me. I still like the path of least resistance.

Isn't this life wonderful? Thanks for the reminder that simple is good. J.

I dig routine most of the time. I too like to be around my daughters and all the activity that seems to surround them both.

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your time with your daughter.

Have a great weekend Mary. I know all about the rain, but thankfully not so much about the snow lately.

I love spontaneity, in fact, often create it. Having written that, I also like my routine...WTF...I want it ALL!

And having recently spent time with family, I can say it is a truly rewarding benefit of sobriety and AA

Thank You, God!
Peace!

I like my spontaneity now. I was always too predictable. Now I've learned to let things happen that are good and step up to do them. Glad that you have a "dry" weekend ahead!

I love the phrase in the 11th step (p. 86): "...what we could pack into the stream of life..."


The image of that - going with the flow of life but participating - is the ideal I could strive for.

Thanx for the reminder...

I certainly identify. I am routine and methodical and enjoy being drama-free.
But being with Hayden is a new drama every minute. It's a great lesson for me.

Thanks for correcting me Mary, on a broken link. It works now. My fault.

I would do the same for you, but you never make these kinds of stupid mistakes!
