I think my mother had a good birthday. During the day she received phone calls from the remaining relatives. We went to dinner last night at an aunt’s house, and played some cards.
The weather here has been amazing and perfect for exercising, but I’m still struggling with my knee unfortunately. This stinks of the same sort of problem I had the end of 2020; it is angering and depressing me.
Still working on my Wordle clone app. I’m going in circles with it. I am realizing that when I return home I may need to restart the process, admitting that I need far more Swift/SwiftUI education. And this app is stupidly simple…
No plans for today other than going to breakfast, the post office, and Publix. Living large we are! I suppose today I should stop trying to shove so much food down my gullet. At least there shouldn’t be another birthday cake presented to my mother.
I should be back in Atlanta for Black Sheep on Sunday, but I doubt that I will attempt doing trail.
Hope you are remaining healthy and happy, and have a weekend of grand plans ahead.
I solved today’s Wordle on the sixth, and final, guess, I honestly thought that I was going to be stymied today.
Glad your mom had a nice birthday. After my product testing yesterday we had a nice picnic and hike at the CRNRA Gold Branch Unit. Headed back up north this morning for part two of my product testing. $175 for 2.5 hours of work? I’ll take it. (Sorry Paulie.) Unfortunately I have to drive because MARTA didn’t complete the track replacement project on time and I have to change trains 3 times and I didn’t account for the extra time for the extra change so now I have to resort to driving. I hate driving in the rain.
Sounds like you had a good day yesterday. Good luck today.
I finally had a surgery pop up on Curion, $40 for gravy tasting in John’s Creek, but failed to qualify.
$175 – nice money!!!! learn anything new about paper products?
Yeah, and I couldn’t even try to get in due to the dates. Poop!
We tested toilet paper. 7 samples per day. Simulated use of course 🙂
The Wordle had me scratching, but I got it in 5.
A reasonably easy day in the office. Installed and cabled a new server and some other stuff. Not a bad drive home. Started getting out of the car and had the vertigo hit, which got worse through the evening. By the time I went to bed, going from vertical to horizontal was tough. A bit better this morning, but the ride tomorrow is now in serious question. F.
Besides the ride, tomorrow is the Games wrap up party. Luckily, when I was in the office yesterday, I discovered the certificates I had printed out were still there- I had forgotten to take them home. Oops.
Safe travel home.
I got the Wordle yesterday in 3, haven’t attempted it today. I tend to mess with it in the evenings.
I decided to make a sheet pan “chinese” type meal last night, basically baking cut up chicken & vegetables. The sauce that was made from the recipe needed something more, for the next time I attempt it. But – it seemed healthy.
Sounds good to me. I’m getting very hungry waiting for my mother to get her stuff ready before we head out to breakfast. On a normal Friday I would have eaten breakfast hours ago.
I guess the Publix marathon has branched out, and is sort of a 2 day event? Tomorrow is a 5K & 10K? then the 1/2 & full marathon on Sunday? Allan has to work with the AFR bike team, some good OT money, but he’s not really thrilled to have to work both days when he’s supposed to be off. I know Sal is running/pacing Sunday, I told her to look for Allan & harrass him.
And for other games… Worldle was a fail- I was in the right neighborhood, but failed. And https://nerdlegame.com/ a numbers version Debbie plays, in 6. A first time playing for me, so a learning curve.
that nerdlegame looks like too much thinking for me.
It’s fairly simple and process of elimination helps. Today was pretty easy, if you were experienced. I’ll see what Debbie gets.
Smooth surgical experience yesterday. I now have an Ace Hardware aisle in my right arm. Minty has already dubbed me Iron Man. No pain today. It’s complicated being separated from my wife at a time like this but we’re working through it.
glad you have it all fixed up, now to heal.
are you right or left handed?
I am right-handed and broke my right arm. But I don’t have a cast. I will have a sling for a while but I can type, so this won’t affect my work too terribly. Pain is very much under control today, so that is good.
Let the healing begin, glad it all went well and hope you get back on the bike soon.
Thanks, Bob. I think it’s going to be a few months. But I’ll work my way back. I am so grateful that I have been doing yoga for a few years now. I would be way worse off had I not.
Glad to hear it went well.. I was wondering.
Thanks, Steve. I can’t imagine having a smoother experience.
Good to hear it went well. Here’s to a speedy recovery!
Thanks, Paulie! Wordle beat me today. I’ve gotten it in 3 or 4 earlier this week.
Thank you, Bonnie!
