It seems as if this weekend has crawled by. Usually, the weekend seems to just fly past. I suppose that's because the time is spent on the boat where I wish time could be suspended.
Instead of the boat, I spent yesterday inside most of the day. I got up at 3:30 AM to take a good friend to the airport. He is leaving town for a month to do some work. After dropping him off, I was both too tired to do anything of consequence but too awake to sleep. Ambivilance seemed to be the word for the day.
I'm taking care of his dog while he is gone. She is a happy girl but obviously misses him. She and I spent much of the day together with me reading and her asleep at my feet. I think that she just wanted the comfort of being near another human, all the while expecting her owner to come in calling her name. I think that she was feeling a bit ambivilant too.
Today, I'm going to go down to the boat to check on things after the rains yesterday. I also have to go help a fellow get his computer up and going. And then, I'm going to pack for a work related trip to Florida next week. I wasn't sure that my travel would be approved with the budget crisis in this state. In a way, I wish that it hadn't been approved. I find most meetings to be unproductive and too long. Usually the conclusions are action items that require another meeting.
I guess that I'm feeling a bit tired today, yet I still feel as if I have to get several things done. Ambivilant again? So, I'm going to get going and make the day a positive one. That is something that I can chose to do.
I'll be on the road tomorrow and will catch up when I can. Have a good Sunday.
