It was not a stellar day yesterday. My depression over my body combined with a few minor other setbacks sent me spiraling down so much that I canceled meeting my buddy Hank for beers. Instead, I filled up the M6 with gas at Kroger (screwing up by only saving 10¢/gal instead of 30¢/gal), and driving a bit around 285 before returning home.

I finished “The Elephant in the Room”. It was a good book, even if it struck a little too close to the bone for me.

Since I can’t drive fewer than four hours to find sunshine and warmth this weekend I will stay at home. I have plenty of inside chores to accomplish, hopefully I can jump all over them and that will improve my mood for next week.

Wordle: three, my starter was DUNCE
Connections: perfect, Blue > Yellow > Purple > Green

    Wordle in 6! Connections green, purple, blue, yellow

    The trailer is ready. A run to the local Luthersville hardware store to buy terminals helped greatly. And I still failed a couple times, finally realizing I was wiring a mirror image (plug vs receptacle). Madam is set to leave at 8, so I had to get r done. Picked up another quarter inch after I was done and made Debbie come rescue me from the mancave with an umbrella.

    Should be a quiet day. One meeting to discuss “Workforce of the future”. Oh boy.

    I’ll see some at Wheelhopper Sunday. Barb, could you ask the hare if this is MTB, CX or gravel bike appropriate?


    • Barb says:

      it should be a mtn bike trail for part of the trail, but with all the rain, its hard to say, trail may be changing. Tomorrow they (& maybe me too) have to decide what to do, as Sunday morning should be “fun” getting the trail set.

      • Bob says:

        Sunday’s trail is going to be a slop fest. I may ride singlespeed to save my gears.
        Good luck with the trail, I’m looking forward to my smoked chili 🙂

    Wordle in 3 starting with GROAN. Connections: Wasted two guesses on the dang green so I moved on to a different category. Yellow, Blue, Purple, Green.

    Busy day yesterday at work. 3rd place at Trivia. Heading to Huntsville sometime today. I usually leave soon to spend some time there but my friend Molly wants to carpool and she can’t leave until 2. ARGH. But it will be nice to have company on the drive. 90% chance of rain on Saturday. Trail promises to be a muddy mess!!

  3. Bob says:

    Good luck getting out of your funk, it’s never fun to be down like that. Hope the drive cleared your head.
    If you feel like having a beer tonight Laura and I will be at the former suburban lanes around 7 for our bowling league.

    • Sally says:

      Have fun bowling tonight and Paulie you really should go hang out and have a beer or two with Bob. Have a good ride on Sunday.

    • Thanks Bob. I’m contemplating driving to a far away brewery, or perhaps breweries, I’ve never previously visited. I was hoping to hike somewhere first, but that’s not going to happen. If I bail on my journey I will come to Comet and visit.

    Good morning, friends. Well, I actually signed up for a yoga class yesterday, drove there in the pouring rain, only to find out that it’s hot yoga. There is no way this middle aged lady could ever do hot yoga. So I bailed and took myself out for dinner at Mali instead which was right next door. Could’ve gone to Paulie’s favorite DBA but I wanted dumplings. Seems like every single yoga studio in Atlanta is hot now?! They didn’t even feel the need to mention it on their website!

    SUPPOSEDLY the shower glass AND the backsplash are going in today! The backsplash is a continuation of the quartz countertops so it’s one long piece of stone and putting it in is an event. Once that happens we can get the plumbing done and hopefully wrap this fucking project up.

    Wordle in four using STEAL.

    Barely squeaked through on Connections. I used three mistakes just on the first one and then managed the other three perfect. Yellow > green > purple > blue.

    busy morning doing stuff not involved with work – I’m so behind now.

    Allan had a messed up crown – so he was trying to find a dentist that could get him in today. I was attempting to help.
    Signed up for a Cobb county event – a class on glass blowing (hearts – for Valentines) – on Saturday 2/3 – but their website needs help – but Annette & I finally are signed up.
    Going to Drag Bingo at Atlanta Hard Cide tonight – there is no food truck, so trying to figure out where to grab dinner before.

    What a morning – and I still need to shower & eat something

  7. Went out for a lovely lunch with Betsy and Lenette at Yummy Spicy on Buford Hwy. I had all intentions of traveling somewhere, hoping to get in a hike, and then drink at a new-to-me brewery, but that plan couldn’t come together. Bob, you may see me later.

  8. Barb says:

    For those that ever wondered – a same day root canal costs around $2500.
    Ask me how I know……..
    Allan has been having a fun day.
