It's here....

The weekend that is . I feel like a kid getting ready to party. Today, I'm going to take off in the afternoon to help a friend look for a car. His was totaled in a wreck a couple of weeks ago and he has no way to get around. So I told him that I would give him a ride to see if he can find something. Through his accident, I've learned what a hassle it is to have your car wrecked. It wasn't his fault (creamed from the side by an SUV) but dealing with the insurance agencies seems to be a nightmare.

Tomorrow is a sailboat party on an island near the marina. With this great weather, it will be nice to be on the water as well as walk on this deserted island. Finally, no flies or bugs!

Then on Sunday is my sponsor's birthday so the sponsees are getting together to celebrate at a luncheon. We'll be meeting up at a restaurant that looks out over the water.

I'm grateful for having so many things to do. There was a time when I just stayed home and was miserable. These days there seems to be a lot of time to do things that I enjoy. And I don't feel guilty about having to stay home to control an unmanageable situation. My SO is going to meetings and seems happier as well. She has met some new friends and seems to enjoy the fellowship of AA. Last night we baked a cake together and just talked about our plans. What a change from over a year ago!


  1. That is so sweet, you two baked a cake together. It's the little things, the togetherness, that makes a realationship, in my opinion, & communicating. Well done!
