A Month of Less Distraction – Day 20
Saturday was a busy day. We took the dogs to the dog park. That was fun. Talk about distractions. Try finding your Corgi in a sea of 24 other Corgis. It was amazing that I could always recognize their barks even though it took me a while to pick them both out by sight. I think that’s a lot like picking my breath out of the sea of other sounds, sights, and other things that could take my attention away. Last night I went to a barbecue. I do not usually like parties. This was a big party outside with lots of families with kids. Screaming kids. I kept my cool for about two hours. I tried my best to keep the pained look off my face and talk to people. A lot of my energy at a barbecue is to find things to eat. I’m being taken out tonight for my birthday. The restaurant (that I picked of course) has lots of vegetarian things to eat and a great wine list. Look for a post in my blog about that place, for sure. It won’t be easy for me to be distracted or annoyed! I think I will have a piece of cake, however.
