In Early, Out Early

Today I will be testing “XYZ Corp”‘s flexibility, as well as my own. Had there not been a slew of poor drivers on the road forcing their way in and out lanes, explaining why there are so many accidents on The Connector, I would have made to the office in fewer than twenty minutes. It would have taken me at least twenty to fly a helicopter to Perimeter Mall. Of course I left the ITP Estate by 6:10am in order to accomplish this; with every minute later for departure the commute is slowed. The reason I came in early is so that I can leave early.

This afternoon I will be consulting with a PT about the potential of getting PT. I realize that consulting a PT about PT is akin to asking a car salesman whether or not I should buy a new car, but I want to heal as quickly as possible with as few lifetime ramifications as possible. This may help.

In my health realm I had a bit of a breakthrough, physically and mentally, last night when I crossed my left ankle onto my right knee while seated and felt my left hip pop for the first time in over two weeks. The endorphins released felt soothing, and the pain associated with the stiffness in my hip reduced. It is my left knee, and deep in the upper portion of my left leg that bother me most currently.

There was a setback in my recovery too as I stepped down off a curb (goddamn curbs!) to cross Peachtree Street and had pain run through my leg upon my heal striking the ground. This occurred not long after I was pleased with the way that I was finally getting to walk with a limp. One step forward, two step back.

Assuming the gathering is still on, tonight I will be consuming a burger for Burger Week at The Imperial with ITP-Reader Stacy and others. I am really looking forward to this.

Here’s to a good Hump Day to all of you.

    Burgers are still on! 🙂 So far it’s looking like you, me, Claire, Darrell, not-a-hasher Michelle and possibly Frank. And any of you fine, fine people reading this if you would like to come too. I’ve never been to The Imperial and couple that with their burger offering (they had me at “pimento cheese”), I’m looking forward to it as well.

    Friday night if folks aren’t busy, consider Burgering up again in the Cabbagetown area. I haven’t decided which one yet, but the main purpose to being in the area is to see a friend perform at Village Theater at 9pm (tickets available at the door…come with!).

    Mmmm… burgers! We will be packing up before departure to the wilds of Kentucky tomorrow.

    Last night was a visit from the vet to see if he could determine what ails Phinney- Mr. “I don’t want to tie up and would rather run home”. I witnessed a new “torture device” which keeps a horses’ mouth open to allow for throat inspection. Interesting. After a set of x-rays along his back, the decision was… nothing. Can’t find anything wrong, so it most likely is “between his ears”. Not surprised.

    I did manage a poor run last night. Maybe it’s the inconsistency of my attempts, but I don’t seem to be getting into shape very easily. This does not bode well for my Paris marathon plan.. (maybe a joke).

    Burgers at the Imperial – sounds so great, but I just can’t imagine the traffic I’d have to endure…… I’d be so pissy.

    Allan got the camper all cleaned yesterday, the outside was DIRTY. We need it to dry, so we can get it all closed up, before the crazy neighbor decides someone is living out there again & calls code enforcement.

    Busy as hell with end of the month shipping here………..

      Barb, there are some offerings in the Vinings area. That might work better for you. I can’t say I blame you regarding traffic.

        I’ve been meaning to look at the list a little closer, to see what’s more accessible.
        But I did have a Red Eyed Mule burger Monday, it wasn’t $5, but it was tasty.
