This hasn’t been the greatest summer for my teeth. If the pain that I started experiencing Monday continues, and it seems to be getting worse, I will have another unscheduled trip to my dentist in the near future. Dangen!

Perhaps the thing I like most about not being a full-time vegetarian is having the option to order meat when it sounds good. Such was the case last night when I ordered the bbq pork egg rolls at the Yacht Club for dinner.

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 209.2 pounds (-2.8 from last week’s weigh-in). Headed back in the direction I want to go.

Impromptu Waschsalon morning because the clothes in which I hashed this weekend are disgusting.

To the best of my ability I’d like to increase my efforts to do the things for which I have a passion. Currently I am eating a hard-boiled egg sandwich at The Waschsalon.

Unlike yesterday I am feeling lazy this morning. Perhaps it was all of the wine I drank last night?

6:20am and I am in the office waiting for the coffee maker to warm up.

It was a fairly uneventful drive home yesterday until I neared Lavonia and heard a boom from the trunk. I knew immediately that I just experienced what Bonnie had described happening to her a few months ago.

I Really Wanted To Try It
This was one of the beers that I bought in Greenville. I only bought this beer as a single, so I will have to wait for a future SC trip to taste it.

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 212.0 pounds. 😭 (+4.0 from last week’s weigh in) 😭😭; more like “Tuesday Whale of the Tape” this week. 😭😭😭

The M6 (finally) has a new car battery. “But you are OTP, right?” I can hear you think. Yes, but this is what happens when you take an already-weak battery and accidentally leave an interior dome light on until it kills the battery. AAA came through, and though probably more expensive than at an auto parts store, replaced the battery on the spot.

Long day of driving yesterday (today as I write this). Hit traffic and really heavy rain near Greenville that brought things to a crawl. By the time I reached Charlotte it was 8pm and there was no hope of finding vegetarian food or quality beer near my hotel for the night.

Also while driving got a $140 charge notification from AmEx that I don’t recognize. Dangen.

Because I was able to get home and mow the yards prior to it raining again last night I am thankful to work for a company that affords work flexibility. I continue to receive job “offers” and even if I were qualified would feel hard-pressed to leave the setup I have now.
