My paper on Yugoslavia is done. I have handed in the final ‘first draft’ but there isn’t much to correct, in my opinion. The bibliography will be adjusted and tacked on, but what should I call it the paper?
I have been doing a lot of old-time AA service these days: driving guys around to meetings and so forth. there has been one kid that I have been driving to meetings. He is, in my opinion, a real mess. He is on 15 different medications for bi-polar, addiction, etc…and I am not sure if I would call him sober of not since one of them is a med that keeps the urge to use heroin at bay. That’s chemically induced clean-time. I’m glad he’s not my sponsee. If he ever asked, I would have to say ‘No.’
Mom is doing well and her mood and memory seem to be leveling out in a good and happy space.
I have asked a woman from a nearby AA group out on a date…yet again. This will be the third (?) attempt at dating and it is pretty low-key. She lives in the Big City most of the week and I have asked her to be my date at a photography opening in early November. Nothing serious, just the show, then maybe a quick bite and then I have to head back home on the train. I am not even considering sex…well, I suppose I am, but that’s normal. I am not expecting it, that’s for sure.
I have registered for the 2010 International AA Convention being held in San Antonio, Texas. It will be a big deal, with about 80,000 people in attendance. AA holds it every 5 years. How fun! I am thinking of driving the 4000+ mile round-trip journey, but that is far away from now.
