Just thinking...


I started writing a big ambitious post, but then my daughter came into my room, fresh out of the shower, with wet hair, and sat on my bed and wanted to talk with her mama. Well, what could I do but talk with her?

Now it is an hour later and I am so tired.

I got up this morning at 5 a.m. to start cooking. I made 2 banana cream pies and two pans of lasagna. I went to the annual picnic of my AA group at noon. It was so lovely to sit around and chat and eat with a bunch of alcoholics. I love that we can be different in social situations than we are in meetings. I am grateful for that.

At 2, I went to a "spa party" held by one of my sponsees. Her mom and sister were in town and I needed to meet them. I am grateful that she wanted me to meet them. I am super grateful that last night she told me she "would be upset" if I didn't come. It is nice to feel wanted.

Then I came home and got dinner ready for my family to celebrate my son's 33rd birthday. It was nice.

It was a long day, a good day. A super good day.

Life is good when you are a sober woman - and I am pretty sure it is if you are a sober man too. Let's try it for another day, OK?

I can manage toast in the morning, I don't know how you can get up and cook. You would have done well in the Little House On the Prairie days.
Have a good monday sweet cheecks.

It's good on the sober man side, too.

I miss those days -- hanging out with my sober friends...

It sounded like a great day...

I have not had a banana cream pie in 25 years. It seems like a dessert that is not so popular anymore. But that is what everyone used to do with overly ripe bananas.

For the past 30 years, since my son was 3 years old, every year on his birthday he has wanted lasagna and banana cream pie. Neither one of these are things I would normally make. But he has never changed his mind.

It sounds as if you had a great time. Your food sounds delicious. Happy birthday to your son. Enjoy your Monday MC.

Life is good as a sober man, too. I get up around five-ish, too. With a clear head and usually a clear conscience. A great gift. Lovely post. Thanks for sharing it, MC.

That's so nice that your sponsee was depending on you and you were looking forward to it. I had a sponsor who had nice talk but never called me unless she needed a ride, never commented on anything I said in a mtg, didn't come to an anniversary that I spoke at. I wish we had had a warmer relationship but I don't think that I was sick enough for her to relate to me.
