Busy Monday...

In times of great stress or adversity, it's always best to keep busy,
 to plow your anger and your energy into something positive....

It's only Monday yet somehow it seems like the work week has been here for a long time. 
 It sure does not help that I had almost no sleep last night.  Now of course I can 
hardly keep my eyes open, but with so many things to do I better otherwise 
I sure will be in a lot of trouble today.

When I finally fell asleep this morning it was with Brutus by my side keeping
 me warm.   Be both slept soundly until Arvid woke up.  Had not 
realized how fast two hours can go by when sound asleep.  

 Today Arvid is in a meeting and to make things a little more complicated, he refuses to drive
 his car because he is worried that if he parks it at the hotel someone might scratch it.  
Therefore, I took him to his meeting and will be picking him up.  He wants me 
to do this for the remainder of the two days the meeting is going on.  
I told him no deal. Today yes, next two days he has to drive.  
The whole point of having a car is to drive it.

Had a very pleasant weekend.  We spent three days in the company of good friends. 
Yesterday Sunday we had our alone time and made the most of it by going to one of
 our favorite restaurants.  Yesterday it was Houston's.  Very relaxing always to 
sit by the water and enjoy our meal as the boats pass by.  

Now to do some work while Brutus is still asleep. 
 Today he gave me a very hard time to take his pills.  It's not a 
happy time for neither of us, but it will always be done because he needs it.

We woke up to a wet day, but it seems to be clearing up a bit.  
Still cloudy, but always warm.  That's why it's called The Sunshine State.

To all a good day and may this be the start of a good productive week 
ahead.  Remember, think and your mind will stay fresh.

Half an hour's meditation each day is essential,
 except when you are busy. Then a full hour is needed....
