As unserene as the headline might suggest I’m feeling at the moment, I’m actually quite happy! It’s Friday and I am enjoying the beginning of a three day weekend here at, you guessed it – Spyhouse. Just finished my attempt at the crossword puzzles and reluctantly forced myself to put them down after unsuccessfully attempting to solve the NYT grid today. Damn – I must need more culture, history, reading, or something … I can’t be that dumb, can I? Okay, I’ll stop there. Don’t answer that.
It’s a beautiful 65 at the moment, with a high in the low 80s. I slept with the windows open last night, and there’s no rain in sight for days! I love it when you can leave the doors open and walk freely between inside and out. It doesn’t seem often that you can do that – either raining, or so humid you feel like you’re walking through a thick cream of mushroom something-or-other.
Work has been both good and bad as of late. Why, oh why am I writing about work on my day off? Well, I can’t stop thinking about it, I suppose. We’ve had some senior folks leave the agency, which leaves us somewhat directionless, unmotivated, leery and nervous of the future – you know, shit that everyone deals with in everyday life is now entering my work life! Something that’s supposed to be structured and consistent, right? I should know better. The only constant is change, right?
Well, I’m trying to make the best of it. It forces you to pick up some of the slack and make up for the holes in personel. I’m sure it will all turn out okay. Now I’ll just have new people to impress.
I’ve got my first sponsee in AA. It’s really quite an honor to be asked. I will have 18 months sober on Tuesday, and my sponsor has been bugging me to get a sponsee for months now. Of course he was hoping I was going to end up with somebody very challenging, but I think this guy’s going to make it. He’s determined, seems willing, and so far, has been honest as far as I can tell. Cross your fingers he stays sober or I’ll never hear the end of it from the Legion of Decency.
I’m off to enjoy the rest of the day. Hope you’re not all at work 😉
