Back in the Mookie
I am playing in the Mookie right now and I'm about middle of the pack. I'm not in the top ten, but I've knocked two people out so far, so I've gotten two bounties which is fun! I'm super happy to be playing in the Mookie again. I made some changes in my life for a few reasons. First off, I had a little issue with some people from my Wednesday night meeting and I decided that they totally didn't appreciate my service. It's a long story, but basically my friend David and I showed up early to set everything up for more than a year and then all of a sudden these like N.A. nazis decide to start coming around and trying to run shit and bitching about our casual attitude. It sucks when people try to take over and rule the rooste instead of having fun. So, whatever, I gave up my position as treasurer and decided to find a new homegroup and I joined the gym. The thing is, I don't want to live in meetings anyway. I want to have a life. That's why I was going to join that softball team at work - I thought it would be a good way to make some new friends and hangout with some "normies" instead of surrounding myself with addicts all the time.
So, at any rate, the softball team thing fell through, however, I got 3 other really fun cool girls together and we are joining a bowling team at the southpoint casino on Tuesday nights. Yay! I'm WAY more into bowling than softball and these chicks are all around my same age, they are fun and I think we'll have a blast bowling on a co-ed league. I am so pysched! The league actually started last night but we just got this idea today so I called and set it up and it's a go for next week!
I think it's very important to have some balance in life. I don't want to only go to meetings, I don't want to live just for work and I don't want to sit on the couch during all my free time. I want to do a little bit of everything and have fun and I think that's what life is all about. Everything in moderations is what I'm learning. My whole life has been about excess. If I was going to the gym, I was going everyday. If I was partying, I was going out every single night. If I was gambling, I was at the casino everyday. All that stuff made me crumble!! Moderation is WAY against every grain in my body and it takes a lot of work. I guess it's worth it in the long run though.
So, I'll be playing in the Mookie every Wednesday bitches - be afraid - be very afraid...
