I made it to the weekend

I ate some sushi this week to help me through. And I made it. I do not like living for the weekend, but this was a rough week. I am glad I have three days off. I am going to try to make it easy for myself. Of course, my first inclination is to tell you of all the plans I have - starting at 4 a.m. tomorrow.

I thought of canceling my run tomorrow, but it is one of my favorite parts of the week, so why would I do that? And I only have to do four miles. Four miles? I could do that in my sleep!

And then a quilting class with my daughter. How fun is that? Well, it probably isn't a whole lot of people's idea of fun, but it is mine.

And I think I should see my b.f. on Sunday night when he gets back from his trip. How fun is that? Fun.

Somewhere in there I will get to a meeting or two. And probably see one or more of my sponsees. And then it will be Monday night and I will be planning my return to work.

And that is good. I was told today I would be a facilitator for something I thought I was being ignored for. I was very happy about that.

Now if only my body will get used to this horrible medication I am taking and it will stop the horrible migraines... I don't know what. But something.

Last night as I was falling asleep I was dreaming my hand was being held by the man I am seeing. That's how pure our relationship is. That's how sweet it is. That's how nice my life has gotten to be. A memory of a nice big hand holding mine. It made me so happy.

And you may not know me well enough to know how much of a miracle that is, but I know how much of a miracle that is. And I can tell you - it is a big one.

God can truly write straight with crooked lines.

(sorry the last several posts are not very coherent, I am really ill) Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend everyone. I hope if you are in the Labor Market, you are gainfully employed. I hope if you are not gainfully employed, it is because you have earned the rewards of long career. In any event, I hope you are satisfied with your lot in life, or if not, that you have hope that you will be. If you are a sober person, you have reasonable cause for that hope.

Some weeks are like that!

Is good to feel the connection of gainful employment although even better is you have some love for your work.

I am glad that you will have a good weekend. I am doing as little labor as possible until next Tuesday. Then I will get the garage rearranged and will paint it.

I've been meaning to comment on your statement about running 4 miles in your sleep for a few days but I keep getting distracted.

I so miss those days. My doctor says I can walk/jog/run until I reach my pain threshold (which is pretty high). My longest session since the last surgery was 4.5 miles. That was cut short more by time than pain.

I'm taking that as a good sign, the road back to painfree and productive running, I have found, is long and slow. And it requires a lot more lessons in patience than I want to endure. But, I'm not ready to quit either, that's for sure.

Hope you had a good Monday.
