Grateful, Recovering Addict
Has it really been this long. I haven't posted in over a week. I haven't even had time to read up on all my buddies out there and I feel a little left out of the loop. Hopefully i can catch up on some reading this week and catch everyone up on me in the next couple of days.
Wow the Convention was an absolute amazing adventure. I was so in awe at everybody wearing my artwork and seeing the HUGE banner with my work on it was so very humbling and just truly amazing. I worked all weekend selling my merchandise for the Convention. I say "my" because I designed everything!!! I know this blog is not very humble but I am not used to having any success in my work. I mean I am always so critical of me and I have never seen so many people looking at what I created and appreciating it. The shirts sold out!! There were over 500 registered addicts at this little event and I don't know how many that didn't get to register. With the people that filled out their clean time we counted 2850 years and 8 days of clean time at the convention!!
Speakers were fabulous I am so pumped with recovery I am so grateful I had so much fun visiting with everybody I feel like I made 500 new friends!! I think I have had 5 hours of sleep in 5 days it has been C-R-A-Z-Y FUN!!!
My little sweet girls need me now they haven't seen me in 3 days.
Last week we rototillered the backyard up, we thought to rent one would be about 25 bucks and it was 80. I have little baby radishes growing up and I have little seedlings coming and i am so excited I will load up some pictures of this and the convention soon.
It was so much fun, picture about 600 addicts and about 100 "Ex- Winos" at the Hilton for 3 Days!! We really had a great event and I think "earthlings" really saw something special in us and it was beautiful!!
Imagine the picture above about 6 foot by 8 foot big!! That was my design for MARCNA!! I think I will be taking a break from convention this year and work on my recovery cards and pictures to raise money for literature racks in the treatment facilities around town.
OK enough excitement for now todays thought: SPREAD THE WORD! Tell your friends, colleagues and family members to sign up on the Earth Hour website so we can count their Vote for our Earth! Details for taking part in this historic call for global action on climate change can be found at www.EarthHourUS.org.
