This was either the best or the worst weekend ever. I did next to nothing for three days, which is something that I aspire to during any given three-day period. On the other hand, I now have a four-day week ahead of me, with five daysí worth of work to get done. Plus, I have a doctor appointment on Wednesday. Plus, I have to get to the bank tomorrow or my rent check will bounce. Plus, I really, really need a haircut, and Iíd like to do it before I go to the doctor.

Since my Monday plans almost never work out the way I hope they will, how can I have any confidence that Tuesday, which is in fact a double Monday this week, will turn out in my favor? The truth is, I canít. I have to make it so through the force of my own will, and thatís a daunting prospect, since my will isnít all that forceful. Most of the time I tend to bend to the point of breaking, and then I break.

On a positive note, Iíve now gone two full days without having to use anything for the pain in my right arm. On a slightly negative note, the pain in my right arm is as severe and constant as itís been during the last month. But Iím pushing forward and getting through the bad times as well as I could probably expect. I do believe Iím going to get my work done tomorrow, along with all the other things on my agenda.

Surprised raccoon.

If good intentions were worth the road theyíre paved with, Iíd be halfway to paradise already. But Iím not sure good intentions have any value unless theyíre backed up by conviction, which isnít a problem, and confidence, which has always been a commodity in short supply in my world. Thatís especially true when itís a short week and taking it one day at a time will leave me a day short.

Someone should remind the people in South Florida that they still have a major league baseball team. After a rowdy homestand, the Giants found themselves playing the Marlins tonight in a nearly empty ballpark. Maybe thatís why they lost, 5-1, and didnít show the spark they had while playing in front of packed houses at home last week. Part of the reason, at least. It could be that traveling all the way across the country to play the very next day contributed to it, too. These are two pretty good teams going head to head, and they deserve a little more support than they got tonight. It looked as if half the people who did show up were Giants fans anyway.

One year ago: Sacrifice
"It does no honor to those who have died for our freedoms if we give up those freedoms in the name of fear. They didnít give their lives so that we could live in shadows, afraid to speak out. The truth will come out eventually, you know. It always does, and better now than later. We want to see more of our soldiers in parades and fewer of them in cemeteries."

Two years ago: Prize
"We are all still trying very hard to have this baby."

Three years ago: Tarnished
"When I woke up this morning and saw the reddish brown stains on my pillowcase, I thought I might be rusting. Maybe it was time for a new undercoating, or p'raps I'm not drinking enough ginseng tea."

Four years ago: Fungoes
"So he's driving his dad's truck and accidentally put his hand through the window after locking the keys in it."

Five years ago: Making the Call
"I didn't tell anyone, in case I changed my mind. No need to paint myself into a corner."

Six years ago: Frequency
"All it takes is remembering that it's almost as hard to overcome a thoughtless cruelty as it would be to go back in time and change it."
