Robert went to his lawyer and said, 'I would like to make a will but I don't know exactly how to go about it.' The lawyer smiled at Robert and replied, 'Not a problem, leave it all to me.'

Robert looked somewhat upset and said, 'Well, I knew you were going to take a big portion, but I would like to leave a little to my family too!'

Her Diary vs His Diary

HER DIARY:

Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird.

We had made plans to meet at a bar to have a drink. I was shopping with
my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was
a bit late, but he made no comment on it.

Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet
so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much. I asked him what was
wrong; he said, 'Nothing.' I asked him if it was my fault that he was
upset.

He said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to
worry about it. On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled
slightly, and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior. I don't know
why he didn't say, 'I love you, too.' When we got home, I felt as if I had lost
him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat
there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent.

Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15
minutes later, he came to bed. To my surprise, he responded to my
caress, and we made love. But I still felt that he was distracted, and
his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep - I cried. I don't know what
to do.

I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.



HIS DIARY:

Harley wouldn't start today, but at least I got laid.

I knew a guy from Tazmania once. He started my belief that Austrailians have a very strange sense of humor. Good but strange.

This guy used to ask - seriously; Would it be faggy if I were to dress up like a pirate ???

Speaking of strange...
I have a friend in the program that says this about dating people from AA/NA, "The odds are good, but the goods are odd."
Usually followed by alot of nervous shuffling of feet and some nervous laughs.

A week or so back, I came up with an idea about dating in recovery as a topic for a discussion meeting. After talking with a few people about the subject it turned into relationships in recovery.
I think we can all agree that they are tough and that old ways of thinking, speaking and acting come back to us way too easily. Or at least for me.

Turns out it was a good topic. I had thought about what I thought were all the angles and different relationships. People in and out of the program, friends, intimate relationships, but one that many hadnt thought of was an individual's relationship w a higher power or God. Not that I have alot to offer on the last one.

Another thing that came out of it was that it was a logical idea to have gone through the 4th and 5th step so that we are at least aware of our character defects before getting into an intimate or dating relationship.

Originally, I had thought that it would be a good topic for both sexes. I actually wanted to hear from the women on what is difficult for them when dating in recovery. My thoughts were that if something is tough for women that it would be good insight and might make it easier for the two involved if the cards were on the proverbial table.

Any thoughts ?

My friend who is chairing is still going to make dating in recovery the topic for the next meeting. If nothing else it will get somebody all fired up. Is that wrong ?

its a rental roof - often times i think i would prefer the outback
at least the snakes out there look like......snakes, not a landlord

actually, my present landlord isnt too bad.
he only bitches about every 3 months because i smoke in the apt, always have
he tells me about 9 months to a year into living here that its a non smoking apt. and that its in the lease
it isnt in either one of the leases Ive had w the guy - i dont think he really cares
hell, the woman above me is 9 months behind in rent and just got her annual eviction notice
i keep quietly mentioning how much life has improved since i quit drinking and how much longer cash seems to last now - usually when she looks like she is going into panic mode like i used to do at the drop of a feather
impending doom/eviction has got to suck
she moves the empty wine bottles out of her apt by the case.....

Its actually a good reminder of what a drink will do for me.

Crocodiles and cold plain french fries do not mix well. And it takes approximately 1/2 a medium Burger King soda to reverse the damage. In case anybody ever wanted to know.
