the day after...

lol, A nice anniversary celebrated yesterday without more then a mere mention from anyone round here, until my friend and brother in recovery Sober Steve calls me to say hey and wish me a happy 13th... Thanks, my friend!

It's nice to have a milestone come and go, no fanfare, no hangovers, no obnoxious self-centered behaviour... It is after all, just another day in sobriety :-)

We got a foot of snow Tues nite/Wed morning. For these parts, that's a major accumulation. I had over 2 hrs invested in shovelling my driveway and unburying my car so needless to say, I worked from home and hung out with the boy yesterday. Hopefully, that will be it for the major snowfalls this season, not a big fan of large type snows like I was as a kid!

I hope and pray for a calm day in my mind. I am overrun with business and damn grateful for it. Now I jsut have to try to act like it, instead of getting all stressed out and bitchy over it. I stand to be able to make a nice chunk of change here for Q1 2009, while many people are really hurting. So, I have to remain grateful, and remain true to the principle that I am here to serve God and help others. I pray that my work be the best that it can be for my clients and my family, that I might truly earn my income.


peace to you all!

Happy Birthday Scott! I think there should have been a huge party for you... like on the scale of the inauguration. Really. So glad we get to share this sober world.

Thanks for proving that 13 can be a lucky number!
