SOTU and AI

I started writing an ambitious post with all sorts of intellectual and complicated ideas loosely associated with sobriety and Alcoholics Anonymous, but you know what? I am still tired from my trip. I am sitting on my sofa and I am thrilled to be waiting for two things on the television - the State of the Union address and American Idol. I live for this stuff. I will try to write that other stuff later. But not tonight.

I will go back to work tomorrow. I am very happy about that. I will get to a meeting on my way to work. I am very happy about that.

Tomorrow is a sponsee's birthday. I am happy about that. She, however, will be on her way to, of all places, Iowa. I told her I could recommend a great mechanic in Nebraska if she needed one. (ha ha)

I am just grateful, grateful, grateful to be home.

And to think that I thought that turning my will and my life over to the care of God would mean that I would have nothing! Thank God that I was desperate enough to be willing to have "nothing" in exchange for the misery I had as a drunk. This "nothing" is certainly wonderful!

I LOL about your sponsee going to Iowa. Maybe you could tag along and describe the scenery as yall travel the road (of happy destiny).

It is ironic that someone else is going to Iowa. I don't think that I have ever been there. It is like children of the corn!

I didn't watch either. Went to dinner and a meeting instead. We did not discuss Iowa, though.

Blessings and aloha...

I don't know a single person in Iowa or from Iowa.
I probably will never make it there. I'm glad you are safe and comfy on your couch.

I think I can go my whole life without going to Iowa. However, I do plan on going to Idaho.
