* an afternoon alone at the office while everyone else was at class

* feeling like an adult, living in my adult body, making adult decisions

* getting a ton more done on the name change process. Almost finished.

Grateful today that:

* I can choose boundaries and enforce them

* I have excellent, flexible writing skills

* I can adjust my food plan/abstinence without putting myself in danger of relapse

* I share how I am REALLY doing when I go to an AA meeting, not a canned response to the topic

* Cody Group AA meetings have been all non-smoking for over 13 years

* Ditzy the Pom loves me so 'vigorously' when I get home, it is almost painful. LOL.

* I have an excellent, fair, balanced counselor
