Give me routine, please

On our first full day in San Jose, Costa Rica, we took an organized city tour. It lasted almost 5 hours and included a visit to the National Museum.
The general concensus was that the tour was boring as hell.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that my Mom was able to celebrate her 84th birthday with my sister at her bedside (I was out of the country)

for all of the wonderful and thoughtful comments that you guys left on my last post before leaving town, 10 days ago

that my life today is teaching me so many lessons that I never took the time to learn during my first 52 years

that it gets increasingly easier to turn things over as I continue practicing it

that I was able to attend Birthday Night @ Lambda Center on Saturday - 27 people celebrated a total of 288 years and had some great stuff I needed to hear

that the 4th step of A.A. can be so useful, even when I am checking in at an airport (story to follow later this week) LOL

that Kenny / Recovery Road -- will be OK. He was able to send me a note via his Blackberry explaining that he is in hospital due to problems with his vision. He is sober and grateful and has a Big Book with him. He's a bit afraid (who wouldn't be?) but said that his HP is sitting beside him and all will turn out the way it is supposed to. Stay tuned.

27 people and 288 years is a beautiful thing! I am glad you and Scott have Lambda to support your recovery and for you to be able to give back. You rock, dAAve.
Thanks for the heads up on Kenny. I will try to reach him through his Blackberry addy.

Cool. Thanks for keeping us posted about kenny. I think you should pay him a visit and bring some doritos and salsa. I hear they are very good for the eyes. But DON'T wear your kaftan. the visual shock could do him an injury! well the lime green on would. I brought some grapes and a copy of hello magasine, but I've already eaten some of the grapes, so I think we need more supplies..

Costa Rica! That is very cool. Did you go anywhere outside of San Jose? I went there many years ago and stayed at this unbelievable, magical place called Villa Caletas, near Jaco, I think. One of the most incredible places in the world.
