9 months last week

Hey all, I wanted to drop a quick note and let you know how I'm doing.  I noticed a few of you who I spoke with 3 yrs ago and earlier this year are still frequenting these boards - and to you I say THANKS!

I'm doing very well.  Last week I celebrated 9 months of sobriety.  I'm an avid AA'er, which is hilarious given all the grief I gave everyone on here.  I completed the 9th step about 2 weeks ago.  Quite an experience!

So I've been through my 40th birthday sober, vacation sober, work retreats sober, parties sober, all kinds of stuff!

The latest news is that I ran into my ex-boyfriend at an AA mtg.  It's been really weird.  We haven't seen each other in about 16 yrs.  We've been talking quite a bit.  Which sort of coincides with my husband - who hurt his back/neck at work and is about to undergo surgery.  I feel like I'm near a dangerous territory with my ex.  But I'm fully cognizant of it and am being careful.  I also received his permission prior to telling my husband all about it - which is a good thing.

Anyway, hope you all are doing well and thanks again for all the support!!
