a busy week continues

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I finally (finally, I tell you) have everything (almost) cleared out of my Mom's house after hiring a private firm to pick up the remainder of my nephew's trash that he left

that I stopped counting at 11, the used syringes that I found laying around his part of the house AND that I didn't get stuck by one of them (as has happened before)

that Ken Lay has such a strong belief in God (as he understands Him) because he will need a friend where he's going

that tomorrow is birthday night at Lambda Center with 24 people celebrating and I have made most of the preparations early because of time constraints today and tomorrow

that I finally got over to my sponsor's new home to check it out

that yesterday was the last day of school for one of my sponsee's (a teacher) who celebrates 4 months sobriety on Saturday

for the special little AA meeting that a few of us have continued on Friday mornings; it originated just over a year ago at the home of a friend who was incapacitated and although he is long recovered now, 6 of us still meet each week at 10am for a meeting before the noon meeting

for kind words from travelling Scott (Sober Nuggets)

for the 18 months I read OneGayAtATime, who retired from blogging this week

that I was finally able to fix my list at the bottom of my sidebar; if any of you need help to fix yours, let me know

that I can be a bit irreverant because it's my blog -- scroll down to the post below

Don't worry that children never listen to you. Worry that they are always watching you.

trudging - When it does that, it's because of The Weather Channel link that doesn't always load correctly. Sorry.

Nice post Davey-boy.

Take it steady around your mum's place - don't carry everything on your shoulders (literally or otherwise).

I wanted to be a priest (lmao) cos I look pretty damned good in purple and gold. And that incense...SNIFF!!!!....ah. I am a Catholic and Catholic boys are the worst. Lol.

Nice post. Good to read about your wee Fiday a.m. meeting. I like those smaller meets.

Yes, yes.... Please HELP with that Referrer thing! Mine has been dormant for moths and I don't know what to do about it... Was actually thinking of pulling the code off the other day...

Meanwhile! Have a great weekend dAAve...
