I am grateful that I have a job to go to, and am grateful today for my daughter that is home for a couple of days from College.

They were really mad that I did not sign a new contract with the recovery program right away after my hearing in June of '05. Their attorney got to read her charges, but we did not have an opportunity to present a defense, so the board really only got one side of the story which made me sound pretty bad.

Thank you for sharing, conejo!! And WELCOME to the thread, too!!

I am very grateful that the other recovering pharmacist who was temporarily let go yesterday and left very upset came by today to work things out. I hope he will be rejoining our staff soon.

I'm also grateful to be feeling better now than I was this morning and most of the day. There is less fear and less anger. At this point, I'm mostly just tired out. I may just go to bed early and try to catch up on some rest.

Love and hugs,
Eddie

Still trying to focus on gratitude here.

I am grateful for South Beach Diet meal replacement bars. Now I can have breakfast with a minimum of thought and effort and they're yummy , too!

Also grateful that I now have the sense not to push it with my exercise when my back is talking to me like it is this morning. I really want to work out, but I decided Metabolic Effect probably wouldn't be a good idea today.

Hope everyone has a great day!!
Love and hugs,
Eddie

Thank you, Kevin and Richie!! Hey, L!!

I am grateful that I went to a brand new NA meeting that just started up really close by. We had a really nice time. I may even change to make it my home group. We'll see.

And I am grateful for surviving my mammogram this morning. I was really dreading it, but it was nowhere near as bad as the ones I had done years ago. Whew! I'm so glad to have that done with.

Love and hugs,
Eddie

Hey, Kevin!! Hey, L!! Wonder where Richie is this evening.

I am grateful for being able to work out at home this morning on my dad's "Cardio-Glide" machine. I really didn't want to go to the gym and do spinning today and I really didn't have time anyway, so it was good to have an option at home.

I am also grateful for a slow Friday at work since we're short pharmacists these days. Friday afternoons can be really hectic, but today wasn't. I was the only full-timer there until after 1PM, and only one of two or three full-time pharmacists in the afternoon, so it's a good thing we weren't too busy.

Hope everyone has a fab weekend!! I'm on back-up call, so I may or may not be around much.

Love and hugs,
Eddie

Good to see you, Eddie, and I'm sorry for your troubles. I guess I have two suggestions for you - 1) Stay in the SOLUTION, and 2) Faith, faith and more faith. God has a plan for us, ya know. Problem is, she doesn't often share the whys, wheresk, and how comes of the plan. That's where faith comes in. Do you part and the let it go.

Hugs to you. You are in my prayers.

- P

Thank you so much, Phinny!! I am working on the faith. It is getting better. Sometimes I still get a knot in my stomach, though.

I am grateful this morning for a good night's sleep without the pager waking me up.

And I'm grateful for all the wonderful support I'm getting here on SR to help me get through this rough patch. Thank you all!!

Love and hugs,
Eddie

Thank you, Richie!!

I am grateful I got in a good workout without being interrupted by the pager.

And I am grateful for my Gold's Gym Body Success planner which not only helps me keep track of my workouts, but also has recipes. Today I made apple-jicama salsa and tomorrow I'll serve it with a pork tenderloin. Should be good !!

Love and hugs,
Eddie

Yum Eddie! Sounds good. I saw Walk The Line, I liked it. Today I am grateful for my friends. I am also grateful for my sobriety. One of my friends from my home group relapsed yesterday. We had almost the same amount of time. It was quite unsettling to watch her raise her hand and say, " I have one day." I almost wanted to throw-up....not out of disgust....just because it made me so aware I guess of what we are all just one bad decision away from. I am staying. Staying right in the middle of my recovery.
Hope everyone is having a good Saturday (or Sunday for Nogard).

I am grateful eddie talks about workouts as it finally got through to me that I need to get back to doing exercise daily.
