Monday on Vacation

I'm still tired from my race it seems. I think in the future I will train before I participate in a race. That's a pretty good idea I think.

Tomorrow morning I leave for the western slope of Colorado to visit with my sponsor and her husband. I won't have internet access for a day or so. I am going to a resort on Wednesday and will have wi fi in my room, so I will be back.

I feel pretty brain dead, so how 'bout a gratitude list?
  • I am grateful I never decided that the border of Iraq and Iran would be a lovely place for a hike.
  • I am grateful that Larry King never cared about what was really going on in my family.
  • I am grateful for a job where I can take a lot of time off - and get paid for it.
  • I am grateful that I have a nice car that will be a pleasure to take on a road trip.
  • I am grateful I have friends to visit along the way.
  • I am grateful that "to these people I am truly related" - my AA family.
  • I am grateful that I got to see my friend Larry at a meeting this morning - and he called me a princess!
  • I am grateful for a lovely bed, under a lovely ceiling fan, with a lovely pillow, with a beautiful starched pillow case and it is calling me...
"Mary, Mary, come lay your head down and thank God for another sober day just before you drift off to dreamyland."

Training/exercise always seems like a good idea. I wish my intentions could provide me the results that I want...

Blessings and bon voyage and aloha...
