Hey Y'all


Its been a bit since my last post, I have been keeping real busy. I got my new appliances and floor (pics soon).YAY! What a HUGE difference in the floor. OMG. And it was so easy to do. Well with my SIL helper it was a breeze. She is a go getter and a good influence for me. Hard to believe that she is POS's sister. She even says so herself, in fact most of his siblings say that, haha. Anyway it came out really nice and I just need to trim it up a bit and done. My slumlord came to pick up the *like new* appliances and I stood in my back doorway taking pictures of him as he loaded them onto his truck. No way I'm goin' on Judge Judy without the proper evidence. See you in court buddy, hehe.

Tonight was the Beach House picnic (aka Woodstock). It actually went quite well. Boy when we drunks sober up we can throw quite the partay! The food was spectacular and clean up is a breeze when everyone pitches in. The meeting was great as always. I am happy to be done with my busy week and back to a bit of normal life.

Speaking of life I have been thinking about how calm and serene everything has been lately. Even with all the chaos last week, all in all I have got it pretty good. I have next to ZERO stress and when I see or hear about someone else suffering I kind of feel guilty. I don't know why, I just DO. Especially when it is someone close to me, like my sister for example. She is going through some heavy stuff right now, but there is not much more I can do. She has to make her own decisions about what she needs to do. I think of the serenity prayer often. Accept the things I cannot change. Acceptance is huge. I KNEW I was an alcoholic, knew I belonged in AA but nothing happened until I accepted it. So it's getting late, I just wanted to check in. I will try to get pics up soon. So adios amigos......QUEEN....OUT

I can soooooo see you on Judge Judy stickin' it to the slum lord. Hilarious! I am glad you have peace and calm right now. We all need those peaceful days, weeks, or months. They help us get through the hard times. And I think the hard times make the good times that much better. I guess it's a continuous cycle.

I can't wait to see the pictures. Include one or two of the slumlord, just in case I see him strolling down the sidewalk without protection.
I'll bet you are happy as a clam with your new stuff!

I have put in new floors before. Once you get started it really is not that hard. I am so proud of you for taking on this task, I always feel great when I have learned to do something new.
I am glad that your stress is down to zero!

Hey there girlie! Glad to hear you are doing well.

You put in new floors for a slum-lord? Maybe I should have gone back and gotten the real story.
Anyway, I totally identify with the good feelings. They are so enjoyable when we roll back into them.

Don't feel guilt. Feel great and enjoy it because you most definitely deserve it, my friend!
