Taking a breather ...


An archeological team, digging in Washington DC , has uncovered 10,000 year old bones and fossil remains of what is believed to be the first politician.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that while I drank by myself, it only takes two to make WE

that AA meetings don't have to have a lot of humans present in order to be effective

that I don't make New Year's resolutions; if I am going to start doing something OR stop doing something, why procrastinate?

that we went to a dinner party -- there was a drunk there who made a serious fool of himself -- I am sooooo grateful to be in sober and in recovery!

that I am being coerced to get out of my comfort zone - with mixed success

that I don't have a Christmas tree to dispose of

for some cold weather (cold for Houston)

Is THAT the truth or what?
I thought I might be up before you todAAy, but no way -- you are up and posted already. AND you "bested" me by 1/2 hour.
Glad you had a nice X-mas with Hayden.
Peace,

I'm confused by the message you just left on my blog. "For what it's worth"? Hmm. Ought I be offended/pissed off?

Ahhhhh.... the comfort zone thing....

I struggle with that daily...

I know staying in it doesn't help me grow...

Here's to venturing forth out of our comfort zones in 2007... (or today, anyway!)

Oh dear. I hope your head is okay.

I was coming from the abgle of ...does he mean his prayers are worthless, or does he mean that his prayers are wasted on me? Or maybe you just bumped your head getting out of the bed on the wrong side?

Have a groovy sober day. hanks for helping me stay sober for another day.
