Back to the Grind.

The soul's decision precedes the body's action in a highly conscious person. December 16  Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1" page 185

As you can see, I have figured out a way to access my ATT YAHOO connection.  None of my settings are like I had them.  Still have not reloaded my Windows Office 2003, but I can do that within the next day or so.I do have my speed back and hopefully have gotten rid of the gremlins.  I did a complete restore system, quite a feat for me.  I know here I was an IBM employee for 3 decades and am basically computer illiterate.  But I must have picked up some of the stuff so we will se how long this lasts.

Petey, the devil dog, is getting on my nerves a bit.  I call him devil dog because he has red eyes and he just stares a hole through me. He's pretty good, I'm just a one dog person.  God works in wondrous ways, as I was contemplating being a foster person for rescued Schnauzers.  Two dogs is more than I can handle.  Not compllaining, just stating the facts, mam.  Joe is now at St Josephs for his physical rehab as of this afternoon.  He sounds better than he has for 10 days.  There is some life in his voice.  He is getting anxious to get home, but does not want to go too soon.

My aquatic therapy is being renewed for another 12 sessions starting 01-04-10.  My flexibility has really improved.  Today I was able to put one foot up on the other knee and put on my socks.  Those feet have not seen one of my knees in years. It's a miracle.(GRIN hmm now where did I borrow that). Can you believe there are only 15 days left of this decade.  Hallelujah.

I'm creeping on my 18th birthday.  It is January 20.  That's another miracle, no alcohol in all that time, day and night.  Really.  You all know that is possible - one day at a time.  I just love me some sobriety.  It rocks.

Tonight I am grateful for:
  • God, My Higher Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my schnauzer
  • My Sponsor
  • A sunny day forecast for Friday. 
  • That the Oh-Oh's are coming to an end.  Time magazine aptly calls it the Decade from Hell.
  • Rosalie has gotten over her sick feeling.
  • Family
  • Friends
  • All y'all
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah!

Glad you've got the bugs out. I'm a techno-tard myself so I think it is quite a feat to figure anything out on these things.
I agree with Time magazine on the decade from hell. Well, maybe not the whole decade, but a good chunk of it anyway.jeNN

Petey, the devil dog - love it.

Creeping up on 18 - what a great thing that is. You're right, sobriety does rock.

I'm glad that your feet saw your knees. Hurray for the aqua therapy too. It all sounds like you are moving in a great direction. And being flexible...well, I'm a master at that.
