So I was sharing in another online forum about my several-years-long procrastination in going through boxes of *stuff* that hold emotional context for me ... and how I successfully! eliminated a box this past week! - yeah, me :) I actually got it down to one desk drawer (from this HUGE box) and every once in a while ...
I came across one of my dad's credit card bills from 2005. By the handwriting on it, I can tell it was he who paid that bill - quite impressive, actually, if you consider he was already pushing the 90s and Alzheimer's disease, and would die 2 years later!!! (Actually, his bill paying wasn't always so accurate or timely by then, and - a whole other story - let's just say I was a watchful eye ...). Anyway - there's something about this particular bill, you see --
I just happened to notice a $12.00 charge to belong to an online group
which would generally imply "oh that's something my daughter Jean is up on"
I recognize the group's name
IT WAS SOMETHING MY EX-HUSBAND WAS INVOLVED IN. WE HAD SPLIT FOR GOOD IN 2003. THIS BILL WAS 2005. --- Wait for it - that isn't even the ultimate irony -- wait for it --
the name of the group was
CHRISTIANS IN RECOVERY
