Cleaning house

10.31.2004 · Posted in Family

I was somewhat spontaneous yesterday and decided to give my mom a call in the morning to see if she wanted to come over and help me clean. She said yes. A little bit of background, in case you’re wondering, or if not, that’s fine, I’m going to type it anyhow 😉 … Being around ...

These polls are scary

10.26.2004 · Posted in Opinions

I’ve heard tons of stuff in the news about the polls lately. This site tends to be fairly non-biased and shows a nifty pictorial of the country and how it’s voting. It’s amazing to me how many people can vote for W. Click on the image for a larger version. I was talking to a ...

I know, I know, I haven’t been keeping up on my blogging. I really have no excuse other than I’ve been working a lot lately. We’re finishing up a big project at work this week, so hopefully after that life will return to a somewhat sane pace. I’ve witnessed more crack deals this week than ...

I finished my 5th, 6th and 7th step on Saturday. It only took 4 hours. I guess some steps are more involved than others. Been whining lately about not having enough ‘me’ time. Maybe not outwardly, but I’ve definately had that mindset. Then it occurred to me – maybe I’m not supposed to have that ...

Spiritually drained

10.11.2004 · Posted in Recovery

Minnesober is finally over with. I’ll post more photos as soon as I have some time to grab them off of my camera. It was a good experience. Attendance was record-high and we got lot-so-kudos on the food. When I wasn’t running around trying to help things run smoothly I had the opportunity to attend ...

Where’d the weekend go?

10.04.2004 · Posted in Autobiographical

Once again I found myself starting my weekend laundry at 10:00pm on Sunday night. At least I got it started this weekend – that’s a first for the past four weeks. I spent a majority of my weekend assembling IKEA furniture for a friend’s new sober home. I’ve been planning to open one of my ...
