One Tired Ole Queen.

Now that the storm is over and most people I know have there lights back on, life is drifting back to near normal. With that comes a tiredness that I don't think I will ever get over. Thursday I slept a whole uninterrupted 12 hours. Friday 15, - Saturday 14. Crazy dreams and all - no pee break.
I really need to go to store. I only have 6 cans of caffeine free diet coke left in my possession and those of you who know me know that is about a 2 hour supply. OMG - I may be reduced to water. ICK!.
Went to the Saturday night Birthday celebration at Lambda last night. A very grateful bunch of drunks celebrated - 23 with 238 years. And of course our Daave was one of them. No one went on endlessly and everyone had something to really say. Had dinner with two of my bestest AA friends before the meeting - Scott W. and Daave. Yes things are returning to almost normal.
I'm so grateful to be among the blessed souls of Alcoholics Anonymous, knowing not where my daily trudge will take me, but confident that the trudge will end like the one before it - IN SOBRIETY. It just does not get any better than that.
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

Sleep good, Queenie.


I've been through the experience of preparing for and going through a hurricane. Wilma (2005) hit in the late hours of the night and early morning. As it went through the winds were very powerful and very scary and we were left without power for a long time afterward. I remember thinking how grateful I was that I had dealt with it as well as I had. But, I also realized when it was all over, that it had taken a great toll on me physically and mentally. I was whipped, beat, dead tired. So......sleep, sleep, rest, rest till you have recouped your energy. You will.
Love and prayers.
