Getting Nervous....

You can't control everything.  Sometimes you just need to relax
and have faith that things will work out.
Let go a little and just let it happen....

A big part of  yesterday was spent stressing about how to schedule care for Brutus while 
we are away.  Easy to do, but because of his medicines, it had to be alternated between Liliana 
and Wendy.  As I said to Wendy, "I am nuts."  Wendy said, "yes you are" but at least we understand
each other which for me is as good as it gets.  We trust them both to take good care of Brutus.

The calendar is already taped to the fridge, and has already been emailed to both. 
Combined with a VERY long and detailed email, I feel as if i have covered all bases.

Leaving Brutus is always stressful and just doing the calendar was enough stress
to make me not feel like cooking, at least that's what I told Arvid and he bought it.

It also makes it easy when there are many good restaurants to choose from and they 
deliver.  Yesterday we were in the mood for Italian and Umberto's is five minutes from us.

More rain yesterday followed by LOUD thunder.  This time Brutus definitely 
took off.  Arvid followed him and tried to get him to come out from under the bed.  
Took a little coaxing, but he finally came out.  The rain of course did not stop the boaters from 
enjoying themselves as you can see.  Nothing stops the fun when you live in The Sunshine State.

After the rain the manatees came out.

The sunset brought the day to a perfect closing.

The days are flying by.  Too fast if you ask me.  Soon it will be time to leave Brutus.
I am NEVER ready for that, but I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Norway.
Boy it is true what they say.  Life really is not that complicated.  We make it complicated.

Good  morning from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
I think I need to listen to Wendy.  She told me to  breathe in 
and breathe out.

I've always got such high expectations for myself.
 I'm aware of them, but I can't relax them...
