The week is going to be slow to start, but soon enough things will pick up and the odds will turn in your favor. In the meantime, conserve your energy and don't exhaust yourself trying to help everyone else out. You're spread thin enough as it is. Then, when a great friend calls you up on Wednesday or Thursday, you'll have the time and the energy to carry on an hour-long phone conversation, if you feel like it. Life is a series of challenges but you're starting to realize that most of the challenges are very easily surmountable, with some cunning and a little effort.
