Made a run at running yesterday afternoon. I started strong, but petered out midway.

Today’s motto is “Just because it’s a meat day, doesn’t mean that it has to be an over-eat day.”

  1. Going to the dentist this afternoon to check out the pain tha I am having. I suppose this week is “Adulting Week” for me.

    You went & attempted to run? Crazy talk.
    We had to go to a friends to water some plants – decided to walk, it was a little over 5 miles round trip. That made for a decent workout last night. And we stopped at Publix too, bought heavy food, Allan loved lugging it home in the backpack.

    • Jog/Walk, in total about 4.25 miles. I jogged the first 1.5 miles, walked, jogged, walked, jogged, and walked the rest of the way to the office. The only heavy thing I carried was my belly fat, which is why I am trying to get rid of as much of it as I can.

    • Stacy says:

      I’ve been guilty of this! Out for a walk, decide to stop for a few things on the way home, and then suddenly am trying to lug 2000lbs. of groceries home that last mile. Hahaha. Stupid girl.

      *actual poundage may have been exaggerated

      • I attempted a Kroger stop after German class last night, but was so infuriated by my fellow drivers that I stopped only for gas before heading back to the ITP Estate.

        • Stacy says:

          I *gasp*! Went to Atlantic Station last night after work. OMG. The drive home from there took forever. It’s *2 MILES*. And drivers were idiots. Like, I’m sorry, mister, but don’t take it personally that I need to get into your lane. I need to turn at the next street! Sheesh.

          If I had to do traffic like that every day I would not be a pleasant person.

          • Barb says:

            Traffic sucks, everywhere. I think the GPS has just made everyone stupid, they just can’t think.
            I had a guy stop on a busy street, the light was green, why???? My guess is recalculating GPS. It almost caused a multicar pileup.

            then – the traffic circle I go thru every day right now just makes me laugh, they aren’t that hard to figure out!

  3. Barb says:

    Allan gets to work the John Fogerty / ZZ Top concert at Chastain tonight.
    AFR drama, they did some “remodeling” at Chastain, and they haven’t gotten the final fire inspection done. But – its really the AFR’s fault it isn’t done – so the show will go on!
    I kind of want to go see Harry Connick Jr Saturday night – Allan is working that show too. Not sure what the ticket price is, I need to check into it.

  4. Stacy says:

    Hey, is it just me missing something, or has Lurker been way too quiet ’round here lately? Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but you’re missed. Hi Lurker. 🙂

    • Barb says:

      he said he was going on vacation to Grenada – maybe not back yet?

    • Or maybe I’ve not given him enough fuel for a fire? Naaaaaah, that can’t be it. 😏

    • ITP Lurker says:

      Hi, Stacy. 🙂 I’m back, just following my life-long playbook of “approach and then retreat” when it comes to social situations. I freaked myself out by giving my name before the trip, so I’ve been laying low. Thank you all for the shout outs.

      Grenada was amazing as usual. I’m having to detox from no longer being delivered a pina colada at 10:00 AM every morning on the beach. The water is so blue that when you’re in the water the underside of the sea gulls is blue when they fly over. We didn’t encounter any Americans until Friday last week, which was glorious in itself.

      Paulie, you’ve been remarkably sanguine as of late, so there hasn’t been any low-hanging fruit.

      Congrats on getting your old job back, Barb. No one else ever seems to pay us what *we* think we’re worth, but it sounds like it was a useful exercise to take a break, both for you and your employer. We sometimes can’t appreciate what we have until it’s gone, so I’m glad you got it back. As Debbie said, better the devil that you know…


      • Steve says:

        Glad you had a great vaca David. I could easily get on the pina colada at 10AM train, except for that whole “work and be sober” thing.

      • Barb says:

        Glad you had a great vacation – I need to look into this Grenada island.
        And- as for the job, it is s the Devil I know, and I won’t be bored to tears most days. I can always look for a different job again if its goes back to the crazy I’ve been told is isn’t anymore. (I really don’t believe them, but I have hopes that I may have more help than I ever had before)

  5. Steve says:

    Not enough fuel for the fire? Ha, never!!

    I pulled the trigger on Debbie’s birthday present concert to Chris Isaak at Symphony Hall in September. I gave her the option of 2 regular tickets, or 1 VIP “meet and greet” ticket (she has a serious crush on him). She wimped out- 2 tickets.

    I mowed pasture last night and the little black bugs were everywhere. I had to stop a few times and select another podcast and they were relentless. Not terrible if you were moving. I murdered 25+ that were riding on the arm of the loader- in one swipe!

    And poor Lola… she’s a pretty girl but dumb as a box of rocks. She discovered the fence is now electrified… yelping all the way into the house. This occurred Saturday- since, she has to be dragged outside. She associated whatever got her with the entire outdoors. At least she’s pretty…


  6. Can’t believe that I have yet to win Hamilton tickets. Don’t they know with whom they are dealing???

  7. Debbie Brady says:

    Glad you’re back and had a good trip David. Paul, your commitment to healthy choices lately is impressive – good on ya.

    I’m headed to the land of cheese Saturday for an extended (for me, more than 2 nights is extended) business trip. I’m taking some walking shoes and plan to get some excerise exploring. Temps won’t be much cooler than here though. 😕

    Brownie was pleased with himself this morning. I think he was glad to be practicing his art again.

    • Barb says:

      Debbie – where in WI are you going?

      • Debbie Brady says:

        Madison Sat-Thurs

        • Barb says:

          I spent a weekend back right after college that I really don’t remember in Madison. It was a blast.
          Make sure you go find a cheese house, just because you have to.

    • Stacy says:

      Not only not cooler – but you will be smack on an isthmus between two lakes. So prepare thee for humidity!

      • Debbie Brady says:

        If the hotel doesn’t have AC in the rooms, there will be a come apart.

        I’ve been to summer meetings in CO where the rooms didn’t have AC and been miserably hot. Not fun.

  8. Hooray, I get to start the process of getting another crown next week! DANGEN!
