Just So You'll Know


In my formative years between about ages 7 - 14, I was fascinated by everything Abe. I read at least a dozen books about Abraham Lincoln; his life and family, his Presidency and all the circumstances surrounding his death.

Just so you'll know.


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful


for another very spiritual birthday night @ Lambda on Saturday; there were 28 human alkies celebrating 316 years of life without drinking alcohol

that I am cleansing my innards today in preparation for a colonoscopy tomorrow (well, I'm not really grateful for this, but just thought I'd mention it). Just so you'll know.

for a nice touch-base meeting with my only active sponsee yesterday; I have 2 others who don't call any more so I don't count them as active sponsees.

that I am a garden-variety drunk and not a spoiled, young female celebrity who parties too much but is in denial about my drinking and drug problems

that my hair grows so slowly; yesterday, Pam asked me if I have ever had a pony tail and the answer is NO! It would have taken too long to grow. That was always my thinking. Of course, if I was going to have my hair in a pony tail, I would not be getting it cut anyway, so it would not matter how long it took to grow. Damn, I'm an alcoholic!

just so you'll know.

Gee, that's a mean sober time of 11.28 years!
Good luck with your cleansing day. I hope your procedure is early tomorrow morning.

Dear dAAve,

Oh, I feel for you having to drink that awful stuff prepatory to your procedure. That is worse that the colonoscopy.

I'm glad you're having yourself checked.

Good luck, I hope all goes well and the results are excellent.

And, thank you for your booster prayer for me regarding not smoking.
Love you.

I hope that you got some of the better stuff to drink in prep for the colonoscopy. The gallon of awful stuff that I've had before was worse than the procedure.

Tab said...

Happy day before your Colonoscopy!
