Crash course

Furious with her ex, she headed out to toss a brick through his window. Luckily, she stopped to buy paint first

When I first came into AA, they told me that life would get real, then different, then real different. When I was four years sober, I was able to claim that as my experience. 

While sober and loving AA, I had also become very ill and was at the time in the middle of a divorce from my husband of 16 years. I had recently discovered that not only had he been liquidating assets before the divorce proceedings, but that he and his new girlfriend were enjoying the fruits of our money with travels to Cape Cod, Machu Picchu and other places.
