The Only Problem With Surprises

Is that you don’t know that they are coming.

Work has been a completely stressful bitch for me lately. Because of this I never followed up to ensure that we were playing trivia last night even though it was discussed a few days earlier. Because of this, as well as Atlanta’s incredibly shitty traffic, I did not make it to trivia last night.

And then I found out that ITP-Reader Stacy and Aron had not only arranged to provide a special dessert for the evening, but Aron had gone through the trouble of printing out all of the Facebook birthday messages that people left for me.

Had I Only Known

How fucking cool is that.

And I missed it.

Tonight Is Laundry Night
’cause my clothes have not figured out how to wash themselves.

Another Weekend Of Work Ahead
I need a change.

I will try to get a 25-30 mile ride in each day before slagging my way into the office, however.

    I agree, a very thoughtful gesture…

    It was a long day yesterday, thanks to the idiots at Home Depot! I worked the moring, then at lunch, joined some of the Games crew to lay a dance floor for esentially the North American Championships. HD was told to deliver “in the morning” but somehow, that tidbit of information got left off the work order. Most gathered before lunch, I met up with the crew at 1, and we commenced.. to wait.. and call.. and wait.. until 6PM when the truck arrived. A quick count (they actually shorted the order, but nothing we couldn’t replace) and we started laying the floor. At 10:45, there were still a few small details to address, but there was still a good crew of folks there, so I decided to head South. Sunday, we get to take it all back up and donate the “gently used” lumber to a home building charity. It will come back up much much faster than it went down.

    Tomorrow morning, I think a ride is in order, before getting all Scottished up and heading to a weddin’. It should be a grand affair!

    Have a great weekend!

    I’m soooo tired.
    We are at my parents house, waiting to hear from Tom. We are short cutting today’s route to make it hopefully less than 50.
    Yesterday we came in at 79. It was all rolling hills, my legs are trashed, so it was a tough day. Not sure how hot, probably just mid 80s, but towards the end I was ready to quit. But, we made it.

  3. But it was supposed to be all down hill after Wednesday, Barb.

    I am impressed with yours and Allan’s intestinal fortitude and look forward to hearing more about everything I missed out on.

    We still have all the print outs. You’ll get them the next time we see you! 🙂
