Tough Week!

Boy it's been a tough week. With all of the talk of financial crisis and what it might mean to everyone's life, all the back-biting and finger pointing of politics, and the uncertainty of the outcome of the presidential elections, I'm whipped! I admit that I have allowed the fear of this week's headlines to freak me out! I'm having trouble staying focused on anything else as well as waking up in the middle of the night and laying there for hours torturing myself with doomsday visions. Let's face it, I'm exhausted! I heard someone (I think Bill O'Reilly) say yesterday, "Do something fun this weekend; relax." In light of the stress of the entire week, I think it's a great idea. Curl up with a good book. Go to the beach. Work on a project that makes you happy. Eat chocolate. Laugh with friends.
Myself, I think I'll go to my happy place. Yeah, that's the one...
Feel the cool breeze and smell the fresh, clean ocean air! I'll just lay here for a few minutes with my glass of iced tea in one hand, and pet Shasta, who has nestled up next to me in the shade of the beach umbrella, with the other, close my eyes, and listen to the waves lapping the shore and the gulls calling to one another. Yeah, this is great...
Eeeewwwww! Ah geez! I didn't see him coming! Wilson licked me on the lips!!!!
