When I woke up yesterday, the first thing I thought was “I’m going to be 49 this year.” Wow. Though I’m not as bummed at the prospect as I thought I’d be. Maybe I’m starting to feel as if I’ve earned these years, the upcoming 5-0 milestone, the wrinkles on my face, the gray in my hair, the sciatica in my butt 😉
I had a great first day of the new year…I went to a meeting with Holly S, where I discovered something interesting about myself–always do at these al-anon meetings–saw “Tangled” with Maggie and the Leake family, then chatted with Holly L about the UUCO. I’ve decided to resign from the board in May, at which time I’ll drop my membership. It’s been an interesting experience; I’ve met some amazing people, made some good friends; however, I’ve discovered that the organized religion stuff is really not for me. I’ll try to write more about this later. For now, I’m glad I’ve come to a decision and feel incredibly relieved.
