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:

    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.
