Hello everyone.


Things actually turned out quite well tonight.    We took Clementine to K.'s house around 6:30 and went to dinner at 7:00.   We shared a great Pinot Noir with dinner....so I probably had 2 glasses.    Dinner was excellent.   We even drove back into the city and drove down our old block where we lived for 14 years.    It was our first house... and the home we brought Clementine home to as a newborn...so it has special meaning in our hearts.    Then we drove and picked up Clementine around 9:30.     She was still up and playing Connect 4 with K.  I did break our contract with each other- (meaning that we did pick up Clem and drove home after Clark had nearly 2 glasses of wine.     Thankfully, we only had to drive a little over a block from our neighbors that were watching her.     Dinner was calm and we did have a great time.     Thank you those of you that commented.    I'm better now and plan to have a sweet day tomorrow.     Clark did tell me as we were driving tonight that "you are really beautiful..."   Wow, just as I blogged about how I felt down and under appreciated....I received those nice words.     God is in control and I will focus on this tonight.     

On a sad note....I just saw on TV that John Travolta's son was found dead....It brings you back to living in the here-and-now and in the moment.    One just never knows.    What a heartache for the family.     I cannot imagine.   I am also sending out love to JeNN at What Now?    Her daughter Annie would have turned 27 tomorrow as we share the same birthday.    What an awesome girl with a special mom with unlimited love.   I pray that she will have a peaceful day.    
Take Care and Have a Great Day everyone.   Thank you for letting me rant earlier.    Sometimes a girl's just gotta get things out.    Goodnight.

Happy 40th Birthday...

Give yourself the gift of self-love and self-esteem and self-respect......

You are a Beautiful person and you can even say that to yourself each day.. :) :) :)..

Alcoholism is a tricky disease.. I was such a Codie for years... and NOT anymore.

I'm putting myself first now...and my Personal Needs a top priority.

People with alcoholism it is like a crazy dance all the time.. it seems like everyone is always reacting to their disease...

Be happy for yourself first.. (that is what I humbly learned).

You're absolutely right - sometimes a girl's just gotta "get it out".

I am so happy your evening turned out well. Wonderful!

I think it should be a rule that they have to tell us how beautiful we are at least once a week. It should just be a rule.

Hopefully, on the occasions that I rant, you eill be there to read me, and write back some consolationary words!

Happy you're back among the OK's.

Is that all it takes? "...you are really beautiful tonight.?" I'll have to try that sometime!!! -grin.

Well, I tried this, I said "Anna, you look beautiful tonight!"

And she just FOFLHAO!!! What gives. I was only trying to make points! Besides, I gave it my best try--looked soulful and true, looked deep into her eyes.

big JENN taught me to ask you, "What now?"

It sounds like a great birthday and dinner. And the compliment is a nice thing. I never miss an opportunity to say I love you to my wife or to tell her how lovely and precious she is.
