Lost in the Middle of the Week

It is only Tuesday and already the week has charged off like a run away train similar to the one in the movie Unstoppable which starred Denzel Washington and Chris Pine.

Unfortunately, the only way this week is going to end is to crash into Saturday.

It is not that I don't like being busy--not at all. But I do appreciate some time to think in-between meetings to keep from providing a knee-jerk response to items that really deserve some application of gray matter to them.

And it is only Tuesday morning.

Well, better busy than not.

I believe it is going to be an interesting couple of weeks ahead as the Republican controlled House and the Democratic controlled Senate attempt to keep the country functioning when the new fiscal year begins on October 1.

To everyone on Social Security or other government programs, like military medical and retirement, we need to be very cautious. From the tones of the spending reduction plans all of the promises we based our futures upon may be nothing more than dry grasses waving in the wind.

And so the week will rocket on.

We can only hope that the Congress and the President come to their collective senses and begin trying to lead the country in a bipartisan manner.

And I hope that the week slows a bit--that said it is just after 5am and I'm heading out the door to play racquetball followed by a match tonight.

But then, I love racquetball--it makes my headache go away.
