Six weeks later and I still can’t accept what has happened. How I could have lost the thing that brought me such happiness? I am sad, still feel betrayed, and am angry, very angry. I continue to remove any reminders that I encounter around the house, in an attempt to resurrect my happiness.

In an effort to literally stop beating myself up I decided that it would be best to not attempt to wedge a long bike ride into my schedule today to give my body (read “knees, which still bother me after my running attempt the other day”. Argh!) a chance to recover.

I solved today’s Wordle in three attempts; my starter today was STAIN, though I wish that I had started with CHAFE! After refreshing my browser tab I hope my word today is the same as everyone else’s.

  1. Instead of riding a bicycle I am watching the professionals do it in Italy.

    Sadly, my phone does not have the correct password for the GCN app. I really wanted to watch yesterday’s stage up Mount Etna (where the motorcycle hit traffic furniture and caused a crash), but it was not to be. Maybe tonight..

    I was going to hit REI on the way north, but bailed when I noticed the traffic getting off at Clairmont. I did make it to a Dicks Sporting Goods and they are desperate for inventory! I found what I was looking for, though there really weren’t any choices.

    Games meeting could have been handled in an email (which is exactly what I said to the Presidents’ wife as I left and she hooted!)

    The 05:10 alarm was damn early after only getting home at 22:00.

      Dude, you’re in IT and you’re not using a password manager? 😉 I’m one to talk, I stubbornly insisted on trying to keep all of my passwords in my head for far too long, until one day I was struggling to remember a password and the guy I was meeting with said in a low key way “My password manager saves me so much time.” 1Password was his tool of choice, which I adopted and haven’t looked back.

      • Longtime 1Password user. I made a mistake however when I stated adding login credentials to Safari, so now I have them in two places. *facepalm*

        • David says:

          Looks like you could fix that pretty easily? https://support.1password.com/import-safari/

          I have become acutely aware of my tendency to leave situations like that hanging everywhere in my life, as some twisted form of self-flagellation. There’s no joy in it, for sure, so now I’m working to smooth out those rough edges anywhere I can. I stopped and fixed one of those long standing situations yesterday.

    • Oh, I missed that Giro news.

      My weekday alarm is still 5:15am, which is funny because I rarely sleep past 4:30am these days.

    This will probably won’t land well given your current mood but I’m going to drop it here anyway:

    Wordle in 3, NYT Mini in 51 seconds (today was a day I couldn’t just fly through the across clues, I needed the downs as well)

  4. Barb says:

    We went to Dr Strange last night- another entertaining Marvel movie.

    Tonight I get to do my 1st Emory Healthy Brain Study – 2 hours on a zoom call.

    Paulie is coming by around lunch time to drop off his bike & we are going to try a place nearby called the Corn House for lunch – its some sort of Brazilian place. It has wildly different reviews, good & bad.

    • Correct!

      Given that I won’t be on the bike for a handful of days I am putting Black Jack in the capable hands of Allan for a once over. Black Jack has to be ready for three punishing days in a month’s time.

      I am confused why the Corn House is a Brazilian restaurant, but I can’t wait to try it.

    • Steve says:

      Yea Barb!! At the gathering for Head Eunuch and CSN, I learned Melissa was also enrolled, though she’s too claustrophobic to do the MRI.

      And you will feel stupid afterward- at least I did!!

  5. Jenka says:

    Hi, Friends! I have been in and out throughout the pandemic, but I just wanted to drop in and say “hi” and “I’m still alive!” [Insert happy face emoji.]

    • Well hello again, Jenka! Setting yourself up for a birthday shoutout next month? LOL

      • Jenka says:

        LOL! It only occurred to me that my birthday was coming up last evening. I was at the Braves-Red Sox game buying a beer and the checkout guy said, ‘You’ve got a birthday coming up!” How did THAT sneak up on me?

  6. Debbie says:

    Wordle in 3!

    Hi Jenka!!

    Y’all get our brains studied; I know mine is broken. 😉

  7. Barb says:

    DAMN – BUSY MORING
    Hi Jenka!!! Long time no talk!!!

  8. Driving around and the M6’s TPMS fired again. If it’s not one thing it’s another! Some things never change…

  9. Delicious lunch with Barb. I ate more meat than I have in a long time, all on one sandwich!

  10. I wondered how I would handle that first chance encounter, and the answer is not well. Now I have to settle down from this emotional setback.
