It Snowed Again...


Normally, snow in the morning makes me happy. But I've been just grouchy enough lately that it made no difference. I immediately got into all the crap I have to do today, things that, of course, I've put on my to-do list all by myself.

I wanted so badly to get it all done before the weekend, but that didn't happen. I used to have so much more energy, although perhaps I took no time out to enjoy life and used chores to get through my anger, or hide my anger, or express my anger.

So I'm taking a break. Ate some dark chocolate which is supposed to be good for me and visited some other blogs. Almost as good as a meeting, well, an open A.A. meeting. Where are all the Al-Anons in blogland? I feel so alone. AA's seem to have so much fun, no matter what they're doing.

I wish I weren't so tired. Maybe I could have some fun, too, but today, just for today, I need to get a grip on "how important is it?" As my sponsor would ask me, "What is your motivation?" Hmmm.... indeed, what is my motivation? I think I'll ask hubby if he wants to go to a movie later...

Spaghetti
A wealthy man was having an affair with an Italian woman for a few years.

One night, during one of their rendezvous, she confided in him that she was pregnant.

Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a large sum of money if she would go to Italy to have the child. If she stayed in Italy,
he would also provide child support until the child turned 18.

She agreed, but wondered how he would know when the baby was born. To keep it discrete, he told her to mail him a post card, and write "Spaghetti" on the back. He would then arrange for child support.

One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife.

"Honey," she said, "you received a very strange post card today."

"Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it later," he said.

The wife obeyed, and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and fainted.

On the card was written "Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti. Two with meatballs, one without."

Very cute Gwen. :)

Do you know Christine? She participates in Al-anon and attends AA meetings. I am not sure if she has came to your blog or vice versa.

Ummm, dark chocolate is always a delight. Did you end up seeing a movie? I hope that your weekend was good, stay warm.
