It's About Time!

Well I see it has been 6 months since I last blogged. I seem to get in a routine coming home from work. I throw off the clothes (mainly bra) get my comfy togs on, get a fresh cup of coffee, sit at my computer and get on Facebook, play wordscraper, Super Farkle, Farkle 2, and three peaks. Then I check emails, then I sit and watch the news and crochet for a few hours then go to bed.
Lately I have been letting "life" get in my way. I am totally frustrated with my health issues. I tried to go swimming and my face would break out in a burning rash all over my face. (chlorine reaction). I tried exercising and my legs and back would get REALLY painful. I just found out I have "leaky valve" in my leg that is making blood pool in my lower leg causing the pain and swelling. One thing after another which leads me to what I plan on doing here on Blogspot.
Next month, June 21st, God willing, I will have 23 years sober.
I have gone through and worked the 12 steps many times. Now I plan on working the steps again. I am going to post the steps and the workbook one at a time here on my blog.
If you have life problems and are frustrated with it (weight, drinking, drugs, family members, work, etc) you can replace the word alcohol with your problem. Me I am replacing it with weight and health.
You can work these steps at your own pace and secretly so nobody but you will know what you are doing. Take advantage of this folks, it is a gift from me to you. I do have to warn you first. I do not recommend replacing the word GOD with anything else. He is what gets me through any situation!! That was the hardest part of the steps for me. Accepting GOD and letting Him take over my life. Since I opened my mind and heart and let God take over, it has been so much easier.
Later on today or tomorrow I will start step one. So get ready for the ride of your life, it is quite the ride!!
Later, folks!!
