Quick One

So son was fine ( as far as active addicts go, which means he hasn't died). Dad contacted him yesterday.
Outside of that one spell, I really did OK.  Went about my business yesterday, after being wound up the night before.  Guess I'd said my prayers.
Today we are getting ready to take off for a couple days R&R and enjoy a break on the Olympic Peninsula.  Nasty weather, but it does not matter!
Today I was thinking, while cleaning up a bit, about how his life is really not my business.  What a relief to say that.  But then my "worrying mind" says how will I handle the holidays?  Shall I invite him or not?  Sheesh!  But I recognized what I was doing.  I wonder if I'll ever get cured of the family disease? Hah.

Isn\'t it amazing where our minds go when we start down that path of worrying? I\'m glad your son is \"fine\" and that you can take some time off with a little \"R&R\". Good for you!

Well, we put the vacation to good use and thoroughly enjoyed it, and did not think or talk about our kids. We went to places we\'d been many years before, and it was a joy. Thanks for your comments and the book recom.--I do find things to read outside of CAL, and I will keep that one in mind when looking.
