Hey Bam, the only thing I've come up with for the moment is that the erratic schedule was too conflictual with your personal responsabilities. The key word being "personal", hopefully the interviewer will be tactful enough not to pursue. I'll keep thinking on it.

Bam,

Thanks for the update. A little more detail wouldn't go amiss, here!

Love,

Lenina

Still sober, powered by a good program of strong determinism and loose bowels.

Checking in. Hanging out with the cat here on my bed while I listen to the Rent soundtrack. We are going to open up a restaurant in Santa Fe...well when my kitty wakes up we'll discuss it in more detail.

I'm home! And now pretending not to be at home. LOL

I went camping this weekend. There were supposed to be 4 of us, and we were supposed to camp in north Texas. Mother Nature intervened with tornadic storms in north Texas and two of the people couldn't make it due to the storms (ya know the old folksy saying "God willing and the creek don't rise?" There are places around here where that's literal). The other friend had already driven 3 hours to get to my apartment, and I already had camping gear and $60 worth of food in coolers in the car. So rather than waste all that we consulted a weather map and headed for northwest Oklahoma. It was excellent! Friday afternoon we left town with no destination in mind, no plan for where to spend the night, only the decision to head northwest. We visited 4 state parks-- camped in 2 of them-- shared our campsite, and very nearly our tent, with an inquisitive and rather stubborn adolescent raccoon, dug in salt flats for selenite crystals, hiked through hills, crawled through caves, and got eaten alive by ticks and mosquitoes. And it was great. It was my first substance-free camping in 3 years.

And now I'm not answering my phone so perhaps I can sleep tonight. Now that the storms are over I have been invited for a trip to our original camping destination. No thanks. LOL


I finally found it! Somehow I didn't expect it to look like this.

Congratulations, Bam.

Welcome SlvrMag. I noticed your signature. Why the =( on your new date? Seems to me you have another chance at things, there's no reason to be =( about that. Look forward to a new future, don't regret a past you can't change.

A good friend called today, the only good friend I have from my drugging days (as we were good friends before the drugs). He was accepted to grad school. I'm proud of him, not just because he was accepted. He's had trouble getting cleaned up and he said he thinks this will help him a little, get him over the hump. I hope he's right. He also said he has been worried about our friendship lately because I'm moving on and being successful while he's still using occasionally. It's hard to be friends that way. I've been worried about that, too. So at least now we're on the same page and he has a little more reason to make it work. I'm proud of him for that and for the first time in a long time I'm proud to be his friend.

You're right, but doesn't "06/07/08" have such a nice ring to it? LOL!

I "stopped" in October 2008. And I really stopped last June. Sometimes it just takes a while to learn how to be clean and sober.

But the 6-7-8 thing is kinda cool. lol
