The gray drizzly morning has now given way to sun. We decided to sleep in this morning and then go for a walk on the beach. The wind is fresh from the NE.
Instead of going on the boat we are going to build a binocular holder for the boat. Before Al-Anon, it would be a disaster to work together on a project.
I remember trying to wallpaper, sheetrock, and paint together. Those projects were interspersed with hurt feelings, anger, and defeat. I am ashamed to admit that I put a hammer through the sheetrock after a particularly ugly bout.
It feels good to work together without rancor now. If impatience does occur, I can now walk away, take a break, and practice restraint.
Later, I am going to a meeting. It's rare to have a weekend not on the boat. So this day offers up some opportunities to relax and enjoy each other in other ways.
