If I’m going to continue to write this blog I need to start doing interesting things again. Sure, I’ve not had a normal bowel movement in a week, but that’s not enough. Sure, I’m supposed to be heading to Iowa a week from today, but that’s still not a certainty thanks to the aforementioned bodily affliction.
My Big Night
On my drive home last night I stopped into Candler Park Market. My initial plan was to buy a tomato to use for a tomato sandwich, and a pint of High Road ice cream to help satisfy a craving for ice cream I’ve had recently. Instead I walked out with the tomato and ice cream, a loaf of wonderful bread, a chunk of Jarslberg cheese, and a Boylan’s black cherry soda.
At home dinner changed from the tomato sandwich to eating bread and cheese while drinking the soda. Later in the evening I had a few spoonfuls of ice cream for dessert. It was all amazingly satisfying.
My Trivial Night
If all goes to plan tonight I will be meeting ITP-Reader Stacy and Aron to defend our trivia championship from last week. If I can play my cards right today at work I will meet them both at Stacy’s and walk down to Edgewood with them. After defending our title we will Uber/Lyft back to Stacy’s.
Be Careful For What You Wish
I just cracked a tooth while eating my bread this morning. All plans are now uncertain.
How do you crack a tooth on bread? Hope it isn’t that bad.
You cannot catch a break.
Currently working from home and supervising the patient. She had an uncomfortable night of sleep, but is currently being supported by Izzie and Maggie- Brownie doesn’t get on the bed… yet.
Our hospital visit ended about 5:30 with no real answers except they think she pulled something as she landed. Asphalt is unforgiving, as many of us know who have crashed a bike. As I drove the car to pick Debbie up from the front door, the tire pressure alarm went off… indeed, a tire was pretty flat. We still drove it to the CVS (a mile) then to Johnnies Pizza (across the street) where I let Debbie out and I drove around the building to the shade and put on the spare-ette. I had just checked the spare the other week when I changed the oil and it was good I did as it was pretty low on air.
At the dentist getting ready to get a temporary crown. Dentist says I should be okay to go to Iowa.
Quit trying to get out of trip!!!!!!!!! LOL
You are going, you will have fun, well, I think you will have fun.
Seriously, I was doing everything to get prepared; Life has been throwing the curveballs at me.
And – quit talking about intestinal distress – I swear it rubs off thru the internet.
I started to pack up bike clothes last night (Felicia comes in Saturday night, taking away my extra bed that is my staging area), I decided to take a page from the BRAG packing handbook, I’m putting 5 entire riding outfits each in a gallon ziploc bag, so in the mornings, I don’t have to search for socks, etc. We will be doing laundry at the parents house Thursday day night, that’s why just 5 kits.
Tonight I might attempt to start thinking about the other clothes I will be needing. I’m trying hard to not over pack. I need a weather forecast, but of course we are too far out for that.
Temporary crown on. Now waiting to start my cleaning that was originally scheduled for next Monday.
Will pack Saturday. I *might* have five complete kits.
Once upon a time, I purchased gallon sized (maybe bigger) Christmas ziploc bags in January before a ski trip. Amazing how tight you can pack once you bleed the air out of the bags. Wrinkles at no extra charge.
Apparently, the GA Games are happening this weekend- at least the cycling is, as I’ve been asked to work the rod race in White, GA. Guess I better get my tire fixed.
I don’t think Allan has 5 shorts that he likes, so he may be washing some out one evening in the shower.
My “problem” was finding the socks that “match” the jerseys. LOL
Steve – since you will be up in White, maybe you will see the new Sosebee Park. They are building a 2nd one.
and – if anyone has extra money to chip in – here’s how they are trying to finance it. http://www.gofundme.com/y94knw
Building a second one? Wow.
Well, I’m $1200 poorer now (or will be once I pay my credit card bill) so I’ll have to think about that Go Fund Me campaign. For a variety of reasons I don’t carry my company’s dental insurance so I pay for all dental work out of pocket.
Ouch, on so many levels.
Trivia has been called off this evening — ITP-Reader Stacy is on her way home from Ohio. At least this gives me the chance to work late, got to keep the job that affords me to buy a $1200 fake tooth.
