Monday 12/28/09 - "CLEANING DAY"
I have been having so much fun this past week. I've given myself permission to go out for lunch after meetings with other Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon members several times. Last Wednesday we went to a little cafe for lunch where I had a delicious curry chicken salad. It was out of this world good as was the conversation at the table. Saturday I had made plans with myself to get to the gym after a noon women's meeting, but scrapped those plans when invited to join three other women for pizza. My daughter and I both went. Yesterday a sponsee took me to a little restaurant, Jane's, in the heart of old Naples. A very quaint spot where I dined on a French omelet with brie and bacon. Yum.
Tomorrow my son and his wife come for Christmas so today is "Cleaning Day". I will be vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, straightening, and also using my new steam floor cleaner requested and received for Christmas. It is time to really get my kitchen floor clean. I haven't tried the steamer yet, but it seems very straightforward and should be easy. Cross your fingers, please. :)
As for now, I'm off to the hospital where I will probably put in a shortened time. Instead of 4 hours, I'll stay about 2. I'm giving this time over to God to direct the time I spend there.
I wish all of you a wonderful Monday between Christmas and New Year's. Prayer Girl
I'm sober in AA since July 5th 1985, and a grateful member of Alanon since November 2004.
I joined the "blogosphere" in September, 2008.
In December 2011 I became a grandmother for the first time and now understand why it's such a big deal. I'm wildly in love again with that little guy.
