Trying to get caught up…

Well…I’m running so far behind this month that I don’t know if I can catch up but I’m going to give it the old college try….it’s been a weird couple of days and I have been resisting putting the air on since I’ve already told you I see dollars leaving this place every time it comes on….but, I just couldn’t stand it today since it’s 95 degrees outside and almost 85 in here…maybe I’ll just cool it down for a while and then turn it off…I might have to meet up with T later and that is going to be fun opening up the car after having it bake in the sun all day…I will be soaked by the time I see her but what can I say? I did have to re duct tape the windshield pillar today since the old stuff had kind of melted in the sun….and I think I have another exhaust leak that is going to cost another 300 bucks that I don’t have…these little drips, drips, drips of cost are going to drive me nuts unless I find a job soon….I think I’ll stop here for now and come back later if I can think of another topic….

July 20th

Well…just a short one this morning since I was not good last night and feel a little crappy today but I think I’m back to not eating right that is compounding it….just can’t bring myself to eat enough…is that an eating disorder? Yeah, probably but I’m not that concerned yet….I did have an okay day yesterday but the heat kept me from doing a lot…I do normally like it when it’s hot so I don’t know why I’m avoiding it…not much to do today….it’s raining right now so no bike ride right now…I think I’ll go back to the normal routine today….more later…..

July 18th

Well…a fun afternoon yesterday with quite a few people coming out to hang for a while…I did lose at pool again but it was a close fought match so I don’t feel bad about it…..I was really good when I got home so I feel okay today but had one of the worst nights of sleep that I can remember in a long time….I think I got a total of about three hours and that was in a span of 7….I may have to go back to the otc sleeping pills for a couple of days to just get the clock reset….we’ll see…not much to do today…going to meet up with T later but not sure when….and then the resumes etc…just like always….maybe a couple with G later but I’m not sure about that….

July 17th

Well….okay, yesterday was a bust if you came here to read something but I think it is just a part of the overall beat up feeling I’ve had for the last couple of weeks where I hurt everywhere…could that be impacting the brain? I think it is since I haven’t been able to come up with anything to say….I did take the day off yesterday…well…not really, I took a brain day off but, like an idiot, I went out on the bike for a long one but didn’t hurt as much after so maybe I didn’t do as much damage as I thought…will probably go out this morning for a leisure ride since it is just so nice out there….could exercise be an addiction? I feel so guilty when I don’t go out that I don’t want to eat since I didn’t burn the 600 calories that I normally do….yeah…a small window into the morass that is my head….there are things to do today….pool of course, and I think C is coming into town to hang out for a while…and I have to watch the women’s world cup…I am concerned with Japan since they looked so good beating Germany….okay, it’s 8 and I am already bored so I need to take that bike ride…..more later….I will really try to get another one out before I go out for pool…

July 16th

Well…I was right…it is a painful morning but not as bad as I expected….especially after starting at 1:30 in the aft and not stopping until I went to bed….as you know, that means I really can’t write too well…as least not now so I’ll come back later after the bike ride and try to make some sense….

July 15th

Well…It’s my birthday and I already feel kinda crappy…started out the birthday celebration with a couple with K and then back here for some cocktails….so this one is going to be short while I lick the wounds and drink a lot of water….then I’m going out to hit some golf balls…and meet up with K at Logan’s later for nachos and more beers….I’ll try to come back later…

Okay…I think I’ll add to this one as the day goes on…nearly just a little bit of irony on the bike ride…damn near got run over by an idiot woman that ran a red light to make a right turn…that would have been the ultimate in irony,huh? Especially since I was going to take the day off riding to let the legs rest…but, I survived it and there will be more later…bad luck, huh?

Back again…had a lot of fun out with K at Logan’s and won some money at Keno….she brought me a bottle of wine to have with my steak for dinner but I couldn’t wait until then so I’m having the wine right now…this is shaping up to be a really painful day tomorrow but I just don’t care…..might be back later…

July 14th

Well…another day, another night….the sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older, shorter of breath and one day closer to death…okay, that’s not how I feel but that line from Pink Floyd ran through my head as I started and I thought it fit a little…with the birthday coming and all…it was an okay day…I did get to see G for a couple of minutes as she left for Livonia and that started my night off and helped me feel a little crappy this morning…not sure what I’m going to do today…I should go out for a few groceries…I have a weird taste for potato salad and I think I may try to make some if I can remember my mother’s recipe….I know it had eggs, radishes, and sweet pickles along with the potatoes but I’m not sure of the rest…so I’ll guess I’ll just try some and see…I may even go out and hit a few but will probably do that tomorrow….that’s about it for now…I am trying mightily to get dome political stuff out and I’m going to keep trying until it stops hurting…more later…

More trail weirdness…

Well…there has been a bunny alert on for the past couple of days and I don’t know if it was caused by the storms or not but there has been hundreds of little ones that scurry across the trail and I am kind of afraid that I’m going to hit one of them. I do hope they get the park trail cleared soon…a huge tree fell on the entry bridge in the storms and I do miss my forest racetrack….for a couple of miles today, my ride was pine scented with all of the trees that are being cut up and I wonder why pine scented cleaner can’t be made with that smell instead of the ones they do produce….one last thing…every couple of weeks, there is an older guy practicing his roller disco moves in the parking lot of Creekside Park that is my last water stop….and he’s pretty good, too….I will be back later after the women’s world cup game with France and the USA…that’s on right now so bye….

July 13th

Well….it was a nice day yesterday with lunch with T and lots of laughs….but then lots of boredom for the rest of the day that culminated with cocktails last night…I have been good lately so I thought the liver could afford a night of enjoyment….I’m still having problems with dead legs so I may have to take a couple of days off to let them rest but then what would I do? It could be that I’m not eating right but that would mean I’d have to eat more and I don’t think I want to do that…a conundrum to be sure. Not much to do today….I think I will go out for coffee this morning and read the papers since there really is nothing else to do…more later…

July 12th

Well…as you saw I just did the 1,00th post here and I will come back to it later on over the course of the day…but right now I just wanted to do what I do every day…give an update on my day and the possibilities of this new one….it was a weird day when the storms rolled through…I can’t remember seeing the wind blow that hard and when I went out on the ride…I could see the damage that was centered along 60th street and was everywhere…there were at least 5 houses that had trees toppled on them and I couldn’t believe that just straight line winds could do all of that damage….it was a hard ride and I can’t figure out why my legs are so dead and I am so tired on the bike…I may have hit one of those spots where I’ve over-trained and have to take a couple of days off to make it better….we’ll see….not much to do today…okay…I do have some things to do…I’m going to be depressed over the cost of the car repairs….but then out to coffee and I’m going to get the haircut that I said I got last week…then I have to meet up with T for a couple of minutes….then maybe out with G for a couple later but I’m not holding my breath about that one since she is so busy…I will come back to the 1,000th one since I do have a few things to say….
