Last night I hosted the meeting of my HOA. I have grown comfortable with this group, but this comfort did not come overnight. A few years ago I quit the group after my initial commitment of two years - those two years were full of uncomfortable conflict. I was gone for just a few months when the president of the board asked me to come back and I did. And I have enjoyed it since then. A couple of the people who were on some kind of crazy, misguided power-trips have left the board and I think we have a sensible resident-focused HOA now and I am glad to be on it.
I have a huge day at work today again. I thought if I woke up at 4:30 this morning I would have time to get a few miles in, but I don't. I will have to do that somehow tonight. I have to get out of here so I have time to get out of work early so I can do what I need to do tonight. I really am a bit over-scheduled.
My boss brought up alcoholism again yesterday. I told her that I tell NO ONE at work that I am an alcoholic. She assured me that she will tell no one. I told her that was not the point and if I had it to do over again, I would never tell her, that she caught me off guard and I regretted telling her. That I do not feel comfortable talking about this at work. I hope she can knock this off.
OK, with God's grace, I will stay sober today and live to the best of my ability - and I hope you all do too!
