Oh What a Night!

Monday, March 03, 2014

Well I think I will be gushing for some time over Benedict Cumberbatch and his memorable first Oscars appearance. I thoroughly regret missing the Red Carpet but it was for a good cause. I spent the day with the family at the Renaissance Festival and had a blast. I don't think I hated it at any point which is a rarity on family outings. My husband was in a rare good mood and didn't even drink. Probably a first for him at this event, but much appreciated by me.

Oh but my Benny!! What an adorable dork! I mean he photobombed the Oscars and goofs with the red carpet interviewers, then pulls off such a smooth and suave presentation. And he cried when his costar won best supporting actress. Then went on the big stage to accept the best picture award with the whole crew. And just cute as a button. He's so adorable I can't stand it! I missed all of Talking Dead (and bits of Walking Dead too) reposting my heart out on Tumblr. Stayed up til 1, that was dumb but just couldn't stop. I'm sure I dreamed about him too, but not that kind of dream this time I think. I did go to sleep praying for him in a way. Just thinking 'I hope he finds someone who really loves him.' I think a lot of his female fans feel this way, that we love him with not a jealous type of love, but that we truly want him to be happy. I think overall, tho he admits be being able to be a real arsehole (which I believe btw, iv been married for 12 years) he is a truly decent human being. If I'm honest that is the same assessment I have of my husband believe it or not. 'Coincidence? The universe is rarely so lazy.'

Anyway the motorcycle class was fun but we got rained on. It POURED in Phoenix on Saturday. She wasn't going to reschedule the whole class for rain. So we did the classroom stuff them got out on the bikes ( yes in the rain!) and got to almost riding before she called it for raining too hard. We learned how to start the bikes and practiced letting out the clutch in 1st gear but not to fully feet on the pegs. We are going back on Friday after work to complete the class. What a thrill! Well it was me and 6 other ladies I work with in the class. It was a bonding experience none of us will forget, I tell you what! We were all soaked.

Had talk #2 with hubby on Saturday also. It did not go great but at least we are talking. I don't know what our long term holds but I guess we will just take it a day at a time. Also meet a newcomer at the Saturday meeting who reminds me so much of me. She's about my age too. And she is new new. Like texted me this am to ask if I could txt her a couple times today to see how she doing. Poor lamb! She's going to a nooner and has a big book so I'm hopeful. Also reaching out most importantly, which means she really wants it. I love being able to 12 step- it really saves my life!

Hope everyone has a great week! I love this week, as I took myself to my very first AA meeting on an Ash Wednesday and that's where it started my journey, so I really think of it as my anniversary. And I have always loved Lent as a time of reflection.

    I was so upset that I fell asleep after Ellen ordered the pizza! I missed Best Pic, Director, Best Male and Female Actor.....I woke up at 1 in the a.m. to the dog snoring as we were downstairs in the family room.

    I thought of you every time I saw Ben on tv last night. He really is adorable! I'm so glad that you had a good weekend, Daphne! The motorcycle classes sound like a great thing for you. I'm sorry it got rained on, but hopefully the next one will be nice and sunny for you.

    Happy AAniversary! I think it's fantastic that you're working so hard to maintain your sobriety, improve your marriage, and help the new girl you met on Saturday. You're a wonderful person with such a big heart :) Love you!
