I slept in this morning and I am now sitting outside with the dogs on this crisp fall morning. It is COLD, but I love it! The air feels so good!! This past week has been up and down. I am anxious about my house stuff. The foundation will be delivered on the 3rd, so the excavator will be starting soon. So, I told him I can not go a $ over his budgeted price. He understands, and is so nice, but I think he thinks I'm crazy. I know this house will be great, but honestly this fall and winter, it may look like compete HELL until I can get the grass done, put on the decks and things like that. But, I know it will happen at some point and I just can't spend the money now. So in the spring is when I will worry about it. I will plant a small area for the dogs, and put up a temp. fence until I can do the yard in the spring, if not summer. I will be in this house for a VERY long time and if I have patience and take my time it will all come together. Just nervous.
Work is going well, I am so thankful. it's a learning curve for them because I am not the norm in what they are used to with booking clients and all. It is funny, but I think it is blowing their minds a bit, but it will all work out. I have been doing tons of weddings!!! UGH, but I have not said a word about me being divorced, I just say I'm single. It is really nice to make a person feel beautiful on their special day. I did a huge wedding last weekend, the first of this size and budget at work. They bought out the 180 rooms and used the place Friday-Sunday. It was amazingly beautiful and I did the whole group of them. the funny part was I didn't know what a big effect I had on the day. They were all happy and the father of the bride(the money man) grabbed me when they were leaving in front of the owner and the GM, he told me I was amazing and his family loved me and I made the day so special for his girls. HOW NICE!! My owner and GM were beyond happy!! That is good for me!! I really do like work and I am excited to just be settled soon!!
Drinking, I have stopped obsessing so much about drinking, I don't know why, maybe because I decided I need to be sober and that if I don't like these meetings when things settle I will find others. My sponsor and I haven't talked and I think she has pulled back to help others closer to her, so I will just have to take all the things she has taught me and review them, remember them and keep looking for an AA group I can make my own.
Now, off to paint my aunts house, her husband, who drinks and gets crazy is gone for a week and we want to do it while he is gone. He gets drunk, sloppy and nasty when he has to do stuff like this, so it is nice to help her out. She deserves to have her house looking nice!!
