It's foggy out side. Thiker than I've seen it in a long time. Rather treacherous to drive through. I needed a meeting, though so I ventured out. It's not so much I needed it because I haven't been to my regular meetings, what with one thing or another. More like many things or another.
Saturday I collected the troops at 10AM. Most of them overslept. Not me. I just wasted too much time. In any case we got off to a bit of a late start, but traffic wasn't bad so we got there only 10 minutes or so late. There is no need to go into the details of the committee meeting, let it suffice to say that I am seeing such growth in those young people. It's not a game. They are serious about what they are doing and they are trying to do they best they can. They understand what they are doing. It's remarkable.
I noticed a movie on our hosts bookshelf it was a very rare copy of Disney's Song Of The South. It's out of print and it hasn't been release in many years. I had never seen it. After we were done with business I mentioned it, and the kids were interested, so we watched it. It's considered dated and racist, but I didn't see it that way. It was actually a very charming movie.
We left shortly afterward, but the kids weren't done with me yet. They decided they wanted to go rollerskating. (No ice skating available.) Don't ask me what I was thinking, but I agreed to it. I managed to go for two hours without breaking anything. In fact, I only fell once. Staying uprigth was an achievement, even though I never did get up much speed. Wish I had a video. I'm sure it was quite amusing to bystanders. I finally got everyone distributed home about 10PM. I spent 12 hours with Alateens and lived. That's an accomplishment.
Yesterday was a house work day. Mortimer came over and packed up some more of his stuff and helped me clean. I decided I would take the time to do some cooking to put away for later in the week. I continued that today. I now have enough dinners to last me a couple of weeks.
Today was a pretty full day also. Started off with coffee with Erin, cleaned out a closet, cooked a couple of dishes, did some photography projects and finished off with a meeting. Not a bad end to the weekend. Back to work tomorrow, but it's a four day week. Busy one too, so don't be surprised if you don't hear much out of me. Alateen tomorrow. Symphony with Peggy and Susan on Wednesday, Opera with Ron on Friday. Al-Anon workshop on Saturday with the teens. Total collapse on Sunday.
