off to a good start

that it felt good to be back on a job that actually pays some $$$$; I got laid off in November 2002 and have not had a money-paying job since.  I'm not making much and this gig won't last very long, but it's a start.  I was apprehensive about my ability to multi-task, since I think that by the time I hit my alcoholic bottom (incomprehensible demoralization) in 2003, it seems like I can only focus on one thing at a time.  However, my partner reminded me over the weekend that he watched me last year as I co-chaired the Houston Roundup, a 3-day convention for 300 people.

that I still attended my 2 regualar AA meetings yesterday and met with a sponsee

for the relief I get when practicing Step 3
