Thursday, 4/30/09 - "JUST A FEW THOUGHTS"


I'm too tired tonight to have many thoughts in my head - there is just enough room for a few.

Today has been busy, busy, busy. I helped someone take care of several appointments and drove them to and fro. As is often the case, the timing didn't turn out the way I thought it would so my own plans got rearranged. It didn't matter much, but I did miss getting to the gym. I'll be away this weekend. Maybe I'll find a way to exercise sometime, somewhere while I'm gone.

I met with a sponsee this afternoon and we finished step 5. She is anxious to move on so that she can have relief from the character defects she has become aware of during steps 4 and 5. I think she will work steps 6 and 7 without delay. We had a wonderful meeting and I felt good afterward.

Hubby and I are going to Cocoa Beach tomorrow till Sunday afternoon. We're going to an event called "AA Woodstock". It will be non-stop Alcoholics Anonymous speakers and meetings held at a hotel right on the ocean. I'm excited, but also trying to stay organized so I take everything I will need while I'm there. I tend to get a little flustered when it comes to packing. I've been working on that and making lists helps a lot. I also do self-talk to keep myself calm and on target with what needs to be accomplished before leaving.

In between all these events of the day and preparations, I spent about an hour on the phone applying for medical insurance. That's sure a barrel of fun. But it's done and I'm relieved. I have one possible policy in the works and this is another one.

We're taking my laptop so hubby and I can fight over who blogs first between meetings. -Grin-

I hope to get a blog out each day, but if I don't you'll know why.

Love and prayers - as always,

Prayer Girl

Prayer Girl can go exercise in the Atlantic ocean, while I blog and look out over the beautiful Florida coastline East.

After that she can have a nice lunch with the AA peeps while I blog...ya see where this is going?

Don't worry and take a good rest especially when you are too tired.

Have a safety journey to Cocoa Beach and have a good fun of it. Look forward to hearing your wonderful time there,

You are one busy busy girl! All with satisfaction, for the most part I believe!
I hate to pack also!
Enjoy the Woodstock AA. That sounds so really cool. Better than the original Woodstock I am sure. ;)

Blessings and safe trip!

Have a wonderful trip. I hope you enjoy the speakers and meetings and take away all that you need from them. Love the picture of the dog - adorable.

I'm praying that you will be blessed beyond measure on this trip, that you will find even more new freedom and happiness...

And I'm glad you continue to share your experiences...

It's always a blessing to me!
