I took the GGs to Wichita Falls to visit cousins who were on spring break. We took Buddy, the new fox terrier puppy. The cousins wanted to see Mom's new dog, and he kept the GGs entertained in the car. Actually, we had a few squabbles and a few lessons on sharing. That was one tired puppy when we got home, and Booboo was worn out too. The cousins were highly entertained by the GGs.
You may have noticed that I went cold turkey last weekend - totally without my computer. Well, I was going to a retreat and thought that I should rest from my usual ways, but as I mentioned yesterday, it took a higher gear of brain power to get through the weekend. When I got home on Sunday afternoon, I checked my email and took a look at some of my favorite blogs, but I just did not have the brain power to comment or post. The weekend at the DWC seemed to have used up much of my brain power. Or maybe it was that after coming home from the conference, I kicked my brain gear into idle. Yesterday I had to get moving and get my brain into GG gear early to get to WF and see cousins - so I was not able to browse my usual blogs. Last night, I managed to read a few blogs, but I found that my brain was still not in gear. "That's nice" and "How interesting" were the only comments that would come to mind. I'm hoping that it is just a temporary brain block and that I can come up with more in depth thoughts soon.
Today is art with my beginners, which takes a different brain gear. I have a lesson planned - so I am at least that far. Now I need to get the house ready and get some chores done - another thing that I am behind on. Without a deadline or some sort of pressure, I can be useless.
I did have one thought on the outcry over AIG's spending of bailout money: If you give a wino a handout, he will probably spend it on booze. If you give a handout or bailout to a company who has mishandled their own money, what makes you think they will handle your money any better?
Jesse posted more photos and a couple of videos from the DWC.
