Be studious in your profession, and you will be learned. Be industrious and frugal, and you will be rich. Be sober and temperate, and you will be healthy. Be in general virtuous, and you will be happy. At least you will, by such conduct, stand the best chance for such consequences.— Benjamin Franklin
Slept a little less than four hours last night after getting to sleep a smidge before 5am. It’s crunch time at work and I’m not exactly liking it. Tonight will be another near-all-nighter, but at least I’m able to sleep in my bed again, having recovered it in yesterday’s clothing excavation. I didn’t make it to a meeting today, and I won’t make it to one tomorrow, but I did spend an hour this evening on my first-step homework. I made my bed this morning, and I just finished washing the day’s dishes. I’m learning how to clean up after myself and keep things in order. I’m beginning to enjoy calm more than chaos. I’m not spending money in the same ways. I’m spending more time than ever with the boys. I have an appointment to talk with A. about our living situation, and I am no longer worried my problems with him are insurmountable. I am continuing to do, as they say, the next right thing. And, also, I’ve made myself a god-box. Yes, change is in the air. Namaste.
