Thursday comes after Wednesday
Today is my noon meeting. I haven't been to it in a couple of weeks, so I'm looking forward to seeing the regulars there. It is the oldest Al-Anon meeting in this town. And since it's at noon time, that means that I will get home tonight right after work.
I took the day off yesterday and did some Christmas things. I wrapped presents for my wife. I took a nap. And I bought a new Blue.
Blue who was wrecked on November 26 has been the subject of much discussion between the insurance adjusters and the body shop. The body shop wants to total Blue because she has a bent frame. The adjusters are wanting to go over every inch and hope for a fix. So I made a decision (sounds like step 3) and decided that if the frame is bent, I won't be keeping Blue. Structural integrity is something that I want in a car. A bent frame doesn't fill me with much confidence.
So I looked at what was available in the pre-owned (nice fancy word for used) certified listings. And there she was: a 2006 Monaco Blue 330 ci with 6 speed manual. Too good to be true I thought. So I made an appointment for us to go "look". One look and I was sold. Kinda atypical for this Capricorn. But with all the incentives being offered, it seemed like acting now instead of later was the best idea. So now there is a new Blue. Merry Christmas to us.
And if that isn't enough, after the meeting on Tuesday when I said that I was rotating out of service for the Beginner's Group, I was approached by a fellow who asked me to be his sponsor. God is sending me a message here. Service is where He wants me.
