Eye of the tiger? More like eye of the dachshund.

I'm tired. I'm work tired and socially tired and preemptively tired.

I have big stuff going on the next two weekends. The last two weekends had big stuff going on. Work is insane. And I have to travel again. All of this is really, really good. But ... I'm burning the candle at both ends.

I'm having trouble remembering to be here now - to be in the moment.

I snapped this picture today after Foxie Doxie had sunned himself on the deck for about an hour. His shiny fur was warm to the touch and he was obviously delirious with joy.

I need to be more like Foxie.

Oh I wish I could be more like mine. Take naps any time, we know we can't unless the lottery is won. Sigh. Dogs are so loving. Kids too. They don't care what you look like, if you need your roots done, how fat you get, etc. They love you unconditionally.

Funny - last night I tweeted that perhaps I'm ridiculously tired because I'm burning the candle at both ends. I feel your pain. Conference calls bound my days (6:30 am - 11pm). My days being back-to-back meetings while I'm physically in the office. When I found myself not on the phone this morning I decided to catch up on some reading and realized how far behind I am (5/31!). OK, now I'm just whining on your blog. Sorry about that.

I hope things lighten up soon. I'm with you: Foxie has it figured out - there is nothing like an hour of relaxing in the sun.
