Flash Fiction Friday- nothing to say

every Friday write a short story poem or prose
in 55 words, no more no less, then report it to the g-man!!

"sitting here texting with nothing to say
wondering what will happen to light up my day

spending hours pondering on clever lines
reaching and grasping for any sign

maybe today i will write something witty
nothing too crass, overbearing or gritty

one thing to remember for every Friday
g-man always has something good to say"

here you go g-man, can't believe it is Friday already. I almost forgot to post. This weekend i am raising funds for my shindig in March. We are a minority voice and this is a real long shot, but one that i believe is well worth the effort. we are starting a 'grassroots' movement in the fellowship and hope that we can get more members on board every day. if this moves forward, we will have been the forming committee on the first US Fellowship Committee!! some of our members in this movement have over 40 years clean!! Wes was on a call the other night, a conference call and he had the least amount of clean time on the call, and he has 20 years!! There is no US delegate committee or service conference of any kind, if we can get the states united, we can do things like start a national 800 hotline which would save groups thousands of dollars every year!! i am so excited to be a part of this, even with opposition, which scares the crap out of me. so Saturday and Sunday are booked solid, then next week we have birthday meetings, then we have regionals coming and then the shindig and convention after that. somewhere in there i may actually get an engagement ring!! life is non stop busy and fun, this morning my 4 year old washed dishes while my 5 year old made toast for her breakfast. growing up way too fast if you ask me. my oldest still needs a prom dress, her military ball is on valentines day and she needs a gown, we ordered one on formal exchange and the gal just told her she would refund her money as she no longer has the dress!! if anyone has a formal dress around size 14-16, full length let me know. i don't think we will try that site again as it is just like looking at candy in a candy store and being a diabetic!! speaking of that my sugars are still at 6!! i was devastated but i have been to the gym 4 times this week and while i am disappointed that i cannot eat anything yummy, and i am having the worst cravings ever, i am still pushing forward with my diet and exercise. i know that is the best that i can do for myself.
I will stop by this morning with some fresh Uganda coffee to see how everyone fared from this weeks installment of FFF55!!

You had lots to say and sounds like great things ahead. Take care of yourself the diabetes thing is a long road that if managed well with diet and exercise you will sometimes forget you have it. (I've counseled alot of diabetics)

best of Fridays to you and hope the fundraiser is great
