Tuesday I took the day off to apply for a passport and clean the house. I have an “invisible” friend visiting this coming weekend. Someone I’ve known for years through message boards but never met. I have online relationships with many people. They have nothing to do with AA or recovery, though the people know that’s important part of my life. I like relating to people through writing, I think, is why it appeals to me and why I keep it going for so long. It is a bit nerve-wracking to actually meet these people. More so because she’ll be staying at my house for two nights. Though I have many online relationships, I’ve only met a total of I think five people, and Carole is one. So I’m spending more time than usual cleaning. This is how we do it. It would be better if I was retired, I truly think so. But for now we have to clean especially for visitors. We should have more people over while it’s not good, but better than usual.
We went to a meeting a bit out-of-the-way on Tuesday, just because I like to do that. We did run into some people we know because we didn’t go that far away, but most of the people there were strangers. I have a pet peeve and I’ll record it right here right now. If you’re going to talk to a room full of people, and if you expect them to listen, please, speak up! It doesn’t matter how brilliant something is if I can’t hear it!! And, for the record, we read the part of the Big Book about resentments being futile and fatal. So there!
