My Mondays have a whole new shape to them, since I totally gave up on making plans to do anything on any Monday ever, for the rest of time. This arrangement allows me to (a) get my work done, and (2) not stress over how many hours there are in the work day. It used to seem like four, when I needed twelve. Now it seems like twelve, although I only need eight. Or nine, or ten. But not twelve, not really.

Thatís true even on a day like today, when the phone started ringing before I had my voice. In fact, itís especially true on a Monday like this one. There were no real crises, but there were a million minor annoyances that had to be dealt with. Itís so much easier to do that when Iím not thinking about how Iím going to have to rearrange the other things Iíd planned to do. There are no other things, so my focus isnít fractured, and I can deal better. Itís always better if I sound like a person whoís in control of his senses when Iím on the phone with the Boss.

For some people, of course, everything is a crisis. Everything that happens, or might happen, or will probably never happen but can at least be conjured in the dark recesses of the paranoid mind. All crisis, all the time. The Boss is one of those people. He used to be one, anyway, and still is to the extent that the voices allow him to be. Itís easier to talk him down than it once was, which is another reason Mondays (and other days) are not as stressful as they might be.

Cubs 4, Giants 2. The Giants hitters werenít up to Ryan Dempster, and Jonathan Sanchez wasnít clued in on the strike zone. Result: a bad start for the road trip. After playing brilliant defense at home all weekend, they looked lost at Wrigley tonight, dropping fly balls and muffing line drives that should have been caught (and were called hits by the local scorer). At least Justin Miller and Bobby Howry looked good coming out of the bullpen, Pablo Sandoval had two hits. Those are the bright spots.
