May 18th

Well…an okay day yesterday…I lost at pool but was good when I got home so I feel okay other than not sleeping too well…so I am still a little tired this morning….and the rain falling doesn’t help make me smile….the weather looks better later in the week so that is something to look forward to since there is not much else that I can think of…..my back is getting better and it has improved a hundred percent over the last day or so…this was a weird one…normally, it hurts on one side or the other but this time it was all across it and not so much pain as just stiffness…but really bad stiffness that had me walking like an 80 year old and I hope I don’t look that old yet….not much to do today…G’s taking the week off since she has an interview tomorrow so it’s going to be just a take it easy day and night…and it looks that way for the rest of the week until C’s party on Sat…but that is not a bad thing….I don’t need the calories from the cocktails and I feel a lot better when I get up….I am still a few behind for the month but I’m not going to force it…there will be a least one more today…I think I may lay our in the sun today to start getting rid of the biker’s tan I’m getting….more later…

May 17th

Well…a fun lunch with T yesterday and that made the day a pretty good one….I did make some progress yesterday morning..got the tires rotated on the car but didn’t find where the noise is coming from in the rear of it…it has been there for almost a year so it can’t be too serious…I was good last night so I feel okay this morning other than getting up at 5 or so and not sleeping that well…I have been trying to eat a lot more and it has been working…I’ve lost some weight since I’ve started this plan so maybe there is hope for the summer…not much to do today…going out to Cascade for pool later and I do have to work out and ride so I’ll at least have the morning covered…going to be good when I get home tonight to get started on eliminating those calories and let the liver repair itself some…will try to get another one or two out today but, as you know, it depends on what grabs me in the news….more later…

May 16th

Well…had a somewhat fun day yesterday out with K and V playing shuffleboard out in Cascade…K and I won both games so that puts us at 27-4 all time….I was good when I got home so I feel okay today…I did forget to put the heat on when I went to bed last night so it was about 50 in here when I got up this morning…the heat feels good now but the furnace is doing some weird two-step when it shuts off so I may have to have the service folks come…..not much to do today….I think I may have lunch with T but it hasn’t been confirmed yet and I haven’t heard from Tom so I don’t know if Tuesday is going to be Tuesday this week….so, I guess I’ll just have to let the day unfold at it’s own pace and take it as it comes….okay, mixing metaphors again but I’m sure you get the idea….I’ll have two topics later today since I do need to keep up….more later….

May 15th

Well..it’s Sunday so you know the pattern…waiting for the coffee to finish so I can put on Pandora and read the paper….man, it is so depressing to have it rain constantly for two days…okay, right now almost everything is depressing so I guess I shouldn’t blame it on the weather…I was pretty good last night do I feel better today than I have in a long time and I am looking forward to taking a lazy day and watching a movie I’ve had sitting in my mailbox for a couple of days…the problem is the movie is “Casino Jack” and I just watched the documentary of the same name so it’s going to be hard to believe Kevin Spacey as Jack Abramhoff…but I will give it a try later this morning….not much to do today…going to make ribs with G’s recipe today and I am looking forward to having something other than chicken….but I still do need to clean and get the garbage out…not walking out in the rain, though, so that will be much later from the way the radar looks…..I am behind on these for the month do maybe today will be a catch up day, who knows?

May 14th

Well….I almost didn’t survive the day yesterday and felt like crap all day both mentally and physically…didn’t even go out for coffee and papers since I didn’t want to read about the Wings….feel much better today and thought I’d get this update out before the coffee finishes and Man U comes on….one good thing that will come from the Wings losing is that I can stop having cocktails watching them and I can use the rest…not much to do today..I really do have to get to cleaning this place up and laundry….but I’m going to read the papers first and watch a little soccer…I will get at least one more of these out since it looks like it’s going to rain most of the day and I will need to use the caffeine some way…more later…

May 12th

Well…overdid it a little last night…seems like a pattern for the last week and I’m going to blame it on the hockey playoffs…needless to say, I’m a little sluggish and part of it is allergies…I hope. Did have fun out with G last night and I am looking forward to the Wings game tonight…got a long bike ride in yesterday and I’m a little sore today but I might survive it…got a compliment last night where one of the people in the bar didn’t believe I’m as old as I am….small things can make me happy. Not much to do today..going to lay out in the sun and start to get some color…or even out the stripes that I get from being out on my bike…going to have a couple with K later and then get ready for the game….more later…

May 11th

Well…I earned feeling crappy this morning with the Wings game and another win….now we go back to Cali thursday to complete the comeback….man…I can’t even think…it was a high stress day waiting for the game to start yesterday….nope, can’t do this right now….need water and the couch….might be back before I go to coffee…or not…

Okay…feeling much better after coffee and the brain is working a little better so let’s get something done…man, that was one of the best hockey games I’ve seen in years…full power the whole time with no let ups by either team…I was grinning like an idiot watching the punch and counterpunch that was going on; how do they do it? and, Pavel in another fight…I am so glad we have the best player in the league on our team…I did have a pretty good day yesterday…it is so nice to have the weather start to cooperate and be able to go out on the bike in the morning….not much to do today…I think out to have a couple with G later but that is about it…and I think I have plans with K for tomorrow…it is nice to have something to look forward to…I will get another one out later today…Manny Lopez is off the rails again and I just have to comment…

May 10th

Well…this one is going to be short so I can get back to the couch and try to recover after yesterday…I think I’m just getting old….maybe it’s a good omen that I came from 3 games down and won the night last night at pool…so now the Wings have to do the same thing tonight….not much of a day yesterday other than shooting pool….and not much to do today…I may just skip the coffee and papers today I feel so crappy….more later…

Okay…fell like I’ve cheated a little this morning and I want to get past that…I did go out for coffee and I am beginning to feel human again…should be much better after working out and getting on the bike which I am going to do right now…I am getting really geeked up about the Wings game tonight…will probably go out and watch part of it at the bar since I would like to be part of the win that I’m sure is coming….I hope….it would be cool to take it to game 7 and win it in their building…and have the Sharks choke again…I will be back later with more topics but the weight machine is calling and I should get to it or I’ll find an excuse to skip and be lazy…

May 9th

Well… no cocktails last night so I feel okay this morning but I think part of it is that the Wings won in a come from behind victory over the Sharks last night and they are still alive in the playoffs….it was an okay day yesterday but I am a little concerned about a left hamstring that started to flair up with some pain….we’ll see when I go out on the bike this morning. It is odd to not have a race to nap through Sunday aft and it was kind of boring but I can take it with the weather getting nicer. Not much to do today…I think we’re moving Tuesday to Monday and that will work out well since I think I may want to go out to watch part of the game…have I said I hate the NHL and Versus? I do get to watch last night’s game today, but it’s just not the same…with the clear head I have this morning, I will get at least two topics out today…yay, I’m half way there…more later…
