I'm back!

I had such a nice time on vacation, I have to admit I couldn't face the blogging right away.  I really just wanted to day dream about the beach and ocean...  It was a great time to recharge. One of my favorite memories is standing on the beach at sunset.  It was so beautiful, the sky and the ocean were SO BIG, and I felt so small.  It was truly amazing.

Several things brought me back to reality, besides the airplane.  The weather was so warm, 50's when we got back.  There was mud everywhere and the snow was all dirty, it was depressing.  It has snowed since, and we are back to normal winter weather.  I am very busy at work now, in fact I am applying for a new position, which means I have to promote myself, something I'm not good at.  And then there is the budget repair bill causing a lot of turmoil here in Wisconsin.  The protests are big and practically in our back yard, about 20 minutes away, something else that makes me feel small.

Son2 hit the 18 month mark and proudly showed me his 18 month coin.  He keeps it in his wallet along with another milestone coin.  He also announced he has become a sponsor.  His sponsee is a couple years older than he is, and so far has been calling to touch base daily.  It's only been a week or so, and his sponsee is just beginning his recovery road, but Son2 seems positive.  He is a part of a sponsor family, his sponsor's name is Angel (no, I am not kidding).  He has sponsee brothers (other guys who Angel sponsors), and now he has a sponsee himself.  Sounds like they get together about once a week to do step work.

There is still something going on with Son2 and K.  She confided that they fight a lot, but she won't say about what.  I think she is under a lot of stress with school, but otherwise, I don't know what the heck is going on.  I know it is up to them to figure out.  She goes to Al Anon, and has a sponsor.  So, I know they both have support.  They know we are here too, to talk if need be.  So, I guess they will either work it out....or not.
