I had a very nice Thanksgiving. It’s time to stop being an eating machine again.

Is it too soon to start thinking about losing weight after Thanksgiving?

I should have remembered my hotel last night sits one block from two Mexican restaurants before eating Mexican for lunch yesterday. So, instead I crossed the busy road to the new Mobil station and picked up some beer (from a horrible-for-me selection), beef jerky, and popcorn for dinner.

I considered watching last night’s Monday Night Football Game until I realized that it was yet another NFL game being played internationally. I am far from the most patriotic person, but I think it’s a major disservice to season ticket holders to continually play games abroad. So far there have been at least four international games (two? in England, one each in Germany and Mexico)? Meh, I probably would have turned it off after the first five commercial breaks anyway.

I was sick all day yesterday, so no World Cup viewing at Midway Pub for me. It also put a major cramp in my plans for this week as I was contemplating getting away today. I am feeling a Little better today, so if I can get all of my shit together this morning I may still, but my sickness came at an inconvenient time.

Another weekend where my favorite football teams came up short again. Unfortunately I am used to rooting for losers.

Technology is great, until it’s not. This morning I tried to change the thermostat from the comfort of my bed by using the HVAC’s mobile app, only to be told that the unit is offline. When I go to the panel the unit is telling my that it is online. What we have here is a failure to communicate! No solution found as of this publishing.

I thought today’s Wordle answer was a repeat, but apparently I am incorrect.

On the trainer this week I have started watching a show from 2018, True South. True South is another travel show which highlights food and restaurants and may be inspiration for me to travel more throughout the South in 2023.

Even though this is not the map of restaurants shown in True South, the host, John T Edge, has posted a map of restaurants throughout the South

My fancy-pants TextExpander shortcut I use for inserting my Wordle result is failing me daily. When it takes more than one attempt to use the shortcut the time to use it is longer than it’s worth. I’ve gone old school and made six copies of the statement in a document and will manually copy and paste the correct result from here on out.

Now you know how one of the sausages is made.

Going to attempt to use today’s rainy weather to get a lot of inside choring done today.

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 192.0 pounds (+1.2 from last last week’s weigh in); very disappointing, I am putting the bike on the trainer today for exercise

Frustrating weekend.

Flannel sheets are on the bed.

County property taxes paid (which is good because they were due 11/15, and not 11/30 as I had assumed); I’m now a bit poorer.

Today I will try and find a suitable 2023 health insurance plan offered through the ACA.
