Happy Friday!

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I didn't wake up to a hangover; instead, I feel good and refreshed

that I didn't black out last night; instead, I remember everything I did

that I didn't spend $40 at the bar yesterday; instead, I watched the stock market eat up some bigger money (ouch!)

that I'm not already considering when to begin my drinking today; instead, I'm getting ready to attend the first of 3 A.A. meetings for this day (something I do every Friday)

We cannot choose our external circumstances,
but we can always choose how to respond to them.

I think Epictetus was an Alanon.

Have a happy Friday (maybe leave the news off, so you don't know how much more money you will lose today?)

And here I thought it was just my employer that's tanking, I guess I'm cheered up!

I am not watching the market. It will do what it's going to do. I like that cartoon. Have a good day, Dave.

the market and politics in general have been a big bummer so I try not to get too wrapped up in all that stuff I cannto control!

Funny... I still forget what i did sometimes and have to look at my blog or twitter feed to remember... I guess advanced age is somewhat intoxicating??
