First AA meeting today


Day 4! Still going to my first AA meeting at 11 a.m. Found out it is going to be a pot luck...YAY...FOOD! LOL. I barely have anything here so not sure what to make, but Im thinking maybe deviled eggs.... Yup, that is what I will make. Sure wish I had a deviled egg dish to put them in though! I only have a plate and then they slide all over. Oh well, it will work.

will you check in later and let us know how the meeting goes?

i love deviled eggs, i make them for a lot of potlucks and they are always a hit
when my grandma passed away, she gave me all her d egg plates as my inheritance. if i lived closer, i'd loan you one! in fact, i have some eggs in there that need to used up, so i'll make some this morn and send positive vibes your way...

hugs, k

Wiscgirl,

Good for you...four days over the end of a week is hard. Deviled eggs sound good!
It would be nice to hear from you after the meeting.

No time to talk. Have to go to work. Meeting went really good. Really nice people. Every person that talked directed everything to me since it was my first time. It was really nice.

Hi guys and gals. Okay, a little more time to talk...but very tired, been a long day! Wow, actually, so tired that I really dont know what to say! I really dont think, no I know I wont, do the 90 meetings in 90 days thing. Right now I am already working almost 60 hours a week, plus have kids, plus have my gram. I will maybe try to make it every *other* day. I am shooting for my next meeting to be Monday at 5:30... Or well, Tuesday cuz I have the counselor on Monday. Anyway though, I will go back. Beside, I accidentally left the plate I had my deviled eggs on there! I have to! LOL. More tomorrow...need to relax... Love ya's!
