a new look

Zane (Zanejabbers) asked me to let yall know that he's OK. He's having internet problems and will be back ASAP.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the people in my life because they are my life

that I didn't panic yesterday when I found out I must move from my home next week (we close on Thursday and the buyer can't extend our stay; our new home won't be ready for several more weeks)

that my cats will stay in a CatFlat (kennel) and an AA friend will house H and I

for a minor controversy yesterday at an AA meeting. It was about an outside issue being introduced (religion) and several people spoke up about its inappropriateness.

that somebody sent me this yesterday ...
We human beings are very funny: when something bad happens in our lives we say, "Why me? Why is this happening to me?" But when we wake up every morning and are alive and healthy and our family is well, we never say, "Why me? Why am I so fortunate?"

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

I ♥ the new header photo!

Are you guys going to stay in Scott's loft? Bunny will be thrilled!!!

Pam said...

I don't like thinking about y'all being homeless! Perhaps you could pitch in with the new house construction!
Hey my son seems to be happy living in his car, and you have that nice big car now...hmmmm

I heart the new look for your blog too (but unlike Bill, I can't make hearts with my mac)

And I truly DID wake up this morning and ask God "why me?" because I am so grateful to be alive, sober, happy, healthy, etc.

Being homeless, even for a week or two, is a spiritual experience. Enjoy!

No matter the reason asked, the answer to 'Why me?' is always 'Why not you?'

Nice to see a new look for your digs.

Hard to tell here on my little mobile device, but did you redecorate around here?

Love the Schweitzer quote....

Great photo. I hope that you enjoy camping out. It can be fun, especially when you know that a real home will be ready in a few weeks.
