Hey my alkie friends. I done fuggered it out. I talked with a friend of mine and he made a suggestion that did not work, but it got me to thinking. Oh yeah, I made a change in my security area on my control panel. So I went back to Control Panel, changed it back. Voila - Everything is back like it was. It was a learning experience, and anything that makes me learn something about my computer has to worth the trouble it causes me. The other change that appeared as if by magic was a change in my email format. Daave told me this was a change from Yahoo and it was not my fault. That was good to hear, so I did not F*** up everything. YAHOOOOOOOOO!
This evening Daave, Rick, and I had dinner at El Pariso (sp) and then went to the speaker meeting at Lambda. The woman that spoke wore me out with the same droning tone. It was painful. I tried to slit my wrists with a limp dollar bill. I was reminded of Gloria Upson from Auntie Mame. I know I am taking the inventory of a sober woman with 21 years, and I should be ashamed of myself, but I'm not. This is the second time in my 16.5 years of sobriety that I have been through such a painful ESH. During my first year, the speaker for our Sunday morning speaker meeting did not show up, so the chairperson asked for a volunteer. This much loved man with 32 years got up and waked to the podium and shared his ESH with us. No one walked out, but it was a topic for conversation at the meeting after the meeting. Of course we never know what the speaker is going through while he/she is sharing or what kind of day they had. Love and tolerance does not come to mind during these type of shares, but I just cannot walk out on a speaker. I've only done that once and more that one half of the attendees left the meeting. Subject for a future post.
Any way, in spite of my self, I have just completed another 24 hours of sobriety, spent an evening with sober frineds, did a meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous. It just does not get much better than that.
Today I am grateful for:
- God, My Higher Power
- My Sobriety
- Mamie, my schnauzer
- My Sponsor
- An afternoon of shopping with Joe
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah!
