Well rested, but still being physically tested. I slept for nearly eleven hours starting around 7pm, waking occasionally only to fall right back to sleep. However, I don’t remember last time I wasn’t experiencing some form of physical deformities and discomfort. Going to schedule a physical today, may be popping into see a doctor or two before that can take place.

At least our weather will be perfect this weekend. That’s the best “positive thing” that I can muster today.

    Hey, you bragged about getting 11 hours of sleep. It generally takes me at least 2 days to accumulate that much, and very much not by choice. So there’s that. And we all start somewhere on being positive, so the weather is always a good opener.

    • I didn’t consider it bragging since I had so much to do last night that didn’t get done. Every once in a while my body needs sleep and I turn into Rip van Winkle.

      • ITP Lurker says:

        Keep trying, you’ll get the hang of this bragging thing. It’s healthy. All negative, all the time does no one any good. And yes, exhaustion eventually has it’s privileges. 🙂

    • Stacy says:

      Oh yeah – lots of positive. Sleep? Oh goodness I love sleep. And I actually haven’t even checked the weather report yet, so thanks for the good news for the weekend! 🙂

      I have no “necessary” plans for the weekend, which is nice. I’m hoping to get down to the Inman Park Festival –maybe even be a gnome!– but I might just chill around the homestead instead. Now that I have, like, a zillion TV channels thanks to a newfound cable deal, I’ve found this new show on the Smithsonian Channel called “Aerial America” with an hour-long episode of each state. I’m transfixed. I watched Wisconsin and Georgia first (of course) but now have to do all of the others too. Because, well, I’m a dork like that.

      • Barb says:

        Stacy – are you watching that show on demand? sounds interesting.

        • Stacy says:

          I actually set a recording when I first ran into it and since it replays, it’s been showing up on my DVR. I’d have to check if it’s On Demand, but I’d imagine so? I just realized they have a similar program called “Aerial Cities” too. I hope they do Atlanta! (you get little history lessons with it too, which I love)

  2. Parked at work and walked to Turner for this morning’s Creative Mornings (Atlanta). If you are here, say hello. I am the guy wearing a brown jacket because he thought it would be colder than it is.

  3. Steve says:

    And the one positive he turned into a negative. It’s a gift, I say.

    While I’m supposed to be dieting, yesterday was off the scale (pun intended). A reasonably sized breakfast, and the plan was to have a small lunch after my workout, but the cafeteria had a chicken fried rice dish and I was starving after the very hard 40 minute workout. Then we had sushi last night when Debbie came home from Florida. We did take some leftovers home, so I was able to stop myself from being a complete pig!

    A new assignment came in yesterday- Starter at Collegiate Track Nats! September in Colo Springs. Hopefully I’ll remember what I learned in class!

    Athens Twilight will be streaming live tomorrow night- it’s always something to see.


    • Barb says:

      TJ will be in Athens, then I was told there is a race in Commerce this weekend too? I guess they found the money that Roswell couldn’t find?

      Trying to figure out what all to do Saturday, Allan is working the Atlanta United game, and then the Foo Fighters concert. I’m single all day!
      I think I’m going to head to Proof’s house in the morning – and I am hopefully going to meet up with Beaver & give him his Packer’s jacket back – that’s I’ve had since he left it at the bowling alley at Cheddarhead.

      • Steve says:

        I’m working Commerce… I think I’m chief (!?!?!).

        I think Roswell had run it’s course. Unless you have some deep pockets, an unlimited supply of volunteers and the complete cooperation of the location, there is a limit for how long a race can keep going. I wonder how much longer Twilight can sustain itself. But I’ve been wondering that for a long time…

        • Barb says:

          I’ll tell TJ to come find you…….. I’m not sure who he’s working with these days. Something neutral of course.

          • Steve says:

            Some generic neutral support company. TJ’s just a ho. I know he’ll find me or vice versa- we always do.

    • You have just learned a valuable lesson about perspectives because in my mind it was never a positive.

  4. Barb says:

    BTW – my brother’s WI town of Superior was basically evacuated because of the oil refinery fire. They decided to go to Minneapolis for a long weekend.
    the air quality must be terrible.

    • Steve says:

      Damn! That could have been really ugly.

      I just looked up something I remember as a kid- there was a fire at the tank farm in Doraville, April 1972. Burned for days. Youtube has some interesting footage from what appears to be DeKalb FD. I still get a little anxious when I drive by that place.

    Another crazy weekend at the Knoll house, I’m glad the weather is going to hold out.
    Travis has 5 friends coming over for a sleep-over tonight. Pizza, bowling, and cake to be had. I hope I survive.
    Saturday morning I have a tennis match and if I get done in time ATL UTD game. Sunday will be a road ride followed by trail maintenance at Big Creek preparing for the enduro in a couple weeks.
    Monday I am playing a charity golf tournament at Country Club of the South, I have always wanted to play there so should be fun.
    I’ll need to get back to work on Tuesday to get some rest 🙂

  6. Hustled my ass from Turner to “XYZ Corp” for my morning stand up meeting. There, that’s a positive. I even managed to do so following all traffic laws!

    • Barb says:

      do you have to stand for these meetings?

    • Stacy says:

      That and — um, that counts for exercise today too! Good job, you!

      It’s amazing what we can clock up during the day without even realizing it. Wandered over to the P’tree Center farmer’s market yesterday on my lunch and ended up with 2.15 miles of foot traffic without even trying.

      • Yeah, I think there and back got me two miles of walking. 👍🏻

      • Barb says:

        I just walked with a guy a work with to a park nearby – we got 2.5 miles in, about 40-45 minutes. Then -drove to KFC (closest fast food) to get some chicken fingers to inhale. Totally forgot to bring a sandwich.

  7. Barb says:

    and – I’d love to sleep for 11 hours. That only happens if Benadryl is involved.
