...For Three Days!!!!!!!!

(Heh, had to do it Jarrad. Tee Hee) ;-)

It's been a nasty rough week for me, ups/downs, just hard and rough all over!

So... on the heals of that, which I haven't fully pulled out of, I'm going to be away for 3 days at a conference. No internet access or support... zilch.

So, if ya'll could be keeping me in your thoughts and prayers etc I would be greatful!! There is going to be like 1000's of people at this conference, packed into a room (a big one, but packed none the less) and it's really the first time away for me since all the big stuff hit! Not sure how I'm going to be.

Thanks in advance, although this'll be the last time I'm online until Sunday sometime.....!!!

Scott,

It's okay to put this recovery stuff on the back burner for a few days. Try to focus on some of the good things that you will get out of this conference and try to have some fun too! I will be thinking of you.

Scott,

I agree. If you can sort of let your mind focus on some other things for a bit, especially while you are in a new environment that could make it easier for your mind to not focus on the past, that could be good.

I know I am able to do that from time to time, when I am more in the now and just enjoying things. It feels pretty good. Of course I find that I can't "stay there" for too long before I get pulled back. But it does have a way of showing me what things can be like when I am able to let go a bit.

I hope it all works out for you and you enjoy yourself at the conference.

Eric

OH!!! You are thuch a drama queen! Can't you just go to a conference without begging for attention and ego-stroking?

If you need to go to a conference, you should just say so...or just leave....or get your hair and nails done...or....oh I don't know what the fk I'm saying any more.

Just dont you dare try to attract any attention away from ME!

OK....Nuf of that....Spotlights back over here please...

\:D

I've got a better idea:

I've got a 15-stop load of fresh meat that leaves here Friday afternoon going to NYC and Boston. You've got to be at your first stop at Chester, NY at 4:00 AM Monday. Then you have stops in Millburn, Montclair, and Carteret, NJ, Hunts Point Market in the south Bronx, then Munsey Park, Williston Park, and two more in Brooklyn and Queens out on the island. Then when you are really tired you have Greenwich, CT, followed by Hatfield, MA at 8:00 PM. Then you can only sleep a few hours before you have got the seafood joint in downtown Boston at 4:00 AM Tuesday, plus three more right near town after that finishing in Norwood, MA at 11:00 AM Tuesday. Then I've got you a backhaul out of that place right over by Blue Hills Ski Area coming straight back to Denver. You take a day and a half off then I've got you an easy one with 12 stops to Chicago and Grand Rapids for next week. Another day and a half off and I'll give you the same NYC and Boston load in two weeks.

You will make about $3,500 every two weeks, with good benefits and our employer-match retirement plan. Think that you can handle it for me?

Good luck on your conference. The last conference that I went to was some food industry show at McCormick Place South. I had to haul some display there.

It is good stuff guys, would have cringed with anyone else. But then Jarrad has also given me the chance to be straight forward, smart assish and even blunt. That really is a blessing to be able to do that with someone.

Feeling appreciated yet Brother \:\)

DIVERSITY RULES!!!!

Stay strong guys, know you all are

I just heard that someone is leaving New Mexico tonight with a baseball bat, heading to New England....really pissed-off.

So I'M LEAVING GUYS....heading to the MS safehouse for a few days. Time to go to the mattresses. I hope the safehouse is still vacant.

HEY!!! The conference I'm at is being held at Messiah College. Turns out that although the college is closed for the summer, the library is open!!! Until 5 though.... So my only time to check in here is during lunch!!! So here I am!!!

TENSION!! WOW. I'll probably do a write up, I want to journal a bit about everything. Especially my dinner last night...... Sat at a table and recognized the guy across from me. Took me about 30 seconds to place him...... He was one of 3 people at the 1 and only Celebrate Recovery meeting I ever went to that I actually told any of my story to....... So...... After a few minutes of sitting there people start introducing themselves..... Comes to me and he says I look familiar...... I'm pretty sure that at some point he figured it out, because any time I looked over in his directions he was looking my way and he would quickly look away. Talk about a nervous, axious, and tense dinner.... Thank God I don't have any more "special" dinners to go to tonight!!!!

Anyway, Gonna run and get my food. I think I'll post a whole recap of the these days here at some point!!!

Thanks for all your thoughts!

Glad you found it funny Jarrad, I got halfway to the conference and my nervous paranoia kicked in and I had myself all worked up that you'd not see it as an attempt to be funny and be pissed ;-) Should have known better. Ah well. Live and learn.

Rock on all!
