Good News

I have good news this morning. I knew where I was going was to get a large amount of snow. So, I called the airlines to see what the deal was with flights this morning. According the woman who answered the phone from somewhere in India, she said, (and you have to do this with an Indian accent - no offense anyone), "You are a platinum member of our sky travel program and you are too important for me to be handling your call." Although it took about 5 minutes of being on hold.

She went on about how important I am. [Hello - would you like to meet my wife? Please tell her I am important. She, for some reason, thinks otherwise]

I said, "Wait. Stop." She kept on talking, "You are shoo impotent, dat we most get you ober to da uder sky miles serwice."

Again, I said, in my clearest English, "Wait. Stop." I just wanted to know if my flight was cancelled, "Please tell me if my flight is delayed. "No. It is not delayed. You are leaving at 6:55PM."

"Wait. I supposed to leave at 9:22AM. So it was delayed?" It went like this for a while. I couldn't help but laugh.

The good news is, I am not traveling. Now I am able to go to the Men's Meeting tonight. I am actually excited about this. I am clearly turning into an idiot. I cannot believe I am really going to go wAAAAAy on the other side of town to go to an Al-Anon meeting AND actually be excited about it.

Yesterday, I saw my therapist. There's another statement I cannot believe I saying or typing. "My therapist." Are YOU KIDDING me? She wants to explore my past. The past I buried. I thought about this last night. I have gone back and forth as to whether I want her dig up the past. More on this later.

Have a nice day.

Digging up the past is what Step Four and Five are about. I dug as deeply and honestly as I could. It was a great relief and much better than any therapist.

Step 4.... Just touching the surface with this one, and deems to be a personal challenge to say the least.

I am hoping that the self examination, revisitation of certain people and situations will at the end of the day provide me release, fogiveness, and peace in my heart.

Peace this Wed morn.
