Trying To Be Positive

I know, it’s not my style to be positive. However, nothing else is working so I figure that I should try this.

I have a lot of questions to answer, many of which I am not willing to share with the internet. I am also awaiting some news about my mother who is having some difficulty at the moment.

Dripping Again
I noticed that a bathroom sink to which I shut off the water to a couple of years ago — long story involving a loss of water pressure and the rusting of the drain — had a few drops of water in it again. Huh? I’m not sure if the colder temperatures in the house have allowed the water to get past the cutoff valve, unlikely (?), or if the valve is giving out.

Regardless, if I want to consider staying in the house then I should get this bathroom, along with the one directly below it, completely renovated including all of the plumbing. Of course these bathrooms are on the other side of the house from the longer-issue plumbing issue that exists in the kitchen / utility room. It would be nice to have a closer-to-normal living space again.

“Anticipation” (Chamblee, Georgia, United States)
I stopped into the Chamblee Public Library yesterday for awhile. I needed to get away from it all and attempted to delve into some iOS development work to try to wash away the saddening thoughts that have been circulating in my mind this last week. It worked somewhat.

While in the library I connected my iOS devices to iTunes and apparently each one needed to get a re-download of iOS 10.1.1. Boy Howdy it took some time to download these. Good thing the library was open until 8pm as I was there until past 6pm.

It Was Cleansing Day
I did laundry yesterday at my favorite lavanderia and then afterward drove down to the quickie car wash on Buford Highway / North Druid Hills. For $10 the M6 got a half-decent car washing. No automated wash will do better than my hand washing, but I didn’t have the time nor desire to wash the M6 myself yesterday. It’s a shame I couldn’t have also cleansed my soul because that would have been awesome.

  1. Lunch tomorrow at Aviva, at noon, is now in my calendar. See you then!

    Whoop whoop! I hope it’ll all live up to the hype I’ve been piling on. 🙂 No creamed spinach on Wednesdays, but all the other sides are pretty much to die for too. Claire’s confirmed in and we went ahead and invited Frank (Royal F*ck) as well since he’s right here and it’s his birthday week. Omg, check out the little mini eating hash we got started here…. *grin* Anyone else in the area, tomorrow, come join!

    Tonight they’re doing the new Atlanta United kit reveal at the Tabernacle at 6:30pm. I guess it’s a ticketed event but a friend has a ticket for me so woo hoo! Anyone else going to be there?

  3. It’s Tuesday which means I will be in German class tonight. Except for next week when Goethe closes for Thanksgiving week.

    1. Holy shit, Thanksgiving is next week?!?!
    2. Hey, it’s not German Thanksgiving, wtf!

    First, I hope all is well with Mom. And you as well. And if you really want to clean your soul, the blog confessional is always open.

    We’re in the middle of our annual staff conference today and I’m avoiding going back in there for the moment so I can get some “work” done.

    Coach Clit was having internet issues at home and I suggested the library near him. I’ve noticed even when the library in L’ville is closed, the wireless is blasting and I’m able to sit in my car and work. Granted, I get strange looks from the cops…

    A mostly quiet and early night catching up on stupid TV. I took Zelda out about 3 while Brownie went out on patrol. I think he found a hay bale to curl up on (much to Debbie’s chagrin) as he wasn’t near the door when I left.

    Lunch tomorrow!!


  5. Thanks, mom is going through a bit of difficulty. Hopefully the medication given to her yesterday will alleviate her problems without any further complications.

    As for me most of my issues are mental, consequences of poor life decisions. Of course I still have the scar-tissue lump on my right eyelid and my dermatological problems that I’ve had for decades, but I have managed to figure out how to live with these and will in the future as well.

    Thinking of trying a new-to-me library this afternoon, one I discovered yesterday. A few hours at the library should help me clear my mind a bit and get me out of this chilly house.

    Hey Paulie! I have an idea. Come do the downtown library and then come to the hockey kit unveiling party with me tonight. I just got an extra ticket. 🙂 Event is at 6:30 @ Tabby. Can totally be persuaded to have a drink beforehand….

  7. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Thanks, but I can’t since I have German class tonight.

  8. Stacy says:

    Dammit! Look at you being all good with classes. Remember when we used to skip classes? 😉 Totally understand though…can’t blame a girl for trying!

    It was a very tempting offer but since we only have ten German classes I hate missing them.
