at last a moment to stop and take a breath

Posted in Crazy Wisdom on Tuesday, March 19, 2002 at 8:39 pm by flerly.

Whoa what a busy work day… not the typical thing to write in here, but for a change when I don’t go in for a day, I’m actually backed up with work. It was… how do you say.. show? er I mean.. strange…

After looking over the gang’s LJ’s it seems they have the Savannah trip pretty well wrapped up. Gang as in and , though it seems Aoide has gone on to bigger and better birthday ramblings…. =) btw, Happy Birthday, in case I didn’t tell you. Party this weekend…

Oh yeah… party this weekend. REALLY hoping can come down. I’m thinking early afternoonish get together with the small gang, maybe Sushi-fest, piercing-fest, general Atlanta sight-seeing and liquor purchasing… then by evening back to the apartment so other extended “gang” can gather, too. Not sure who all is interested yet. Just a note to Infinite1der, Contour-meet, smontour-meet, Nopi – smopi, we want you in on the parte’… and I planned this first, I’m pretty sure.

Well, for those of you who missed it just stop now and plan to devote about four hours of your life to watching the re-airing of the World Championship Adventure Race on March 24th or 30th. I cannot explain how amazing these people are who make it through this thing… 120 hours of physical endurance tests on maybe 4 hours total sleep… there’s danger, drama, and most of all, you’ll get a sense of the amazing feats a human being is capable of. Enough said, just watch it.

Well… in related news, haven’t totally blown the diet despite the vacation menu fare. Managed to only gain back one pound instead of what would normally for me have been a huge vacation gain. Got plenty of walking exercise, too, which, coupled with Adventure Race enthusiasm, has me doubly psyched to exercise. Had a rather fun bout of tennis (if you’d like to call it that) on the “jungle court” last night with JamesT, and am looking forward to more of the same tonight (soon!) barring rain. Otherwise, it’s to the gym with me! Watching the race and on the long ride home, JT and I discussed doing something big.. like training for a marathon. Personally, i’d like to train for a big climb or something, but I’m not sure what he’s up for. I dream of a vacation set aside just for some unusual physical activity… we’ll see what happens, and well, nothing like a shared goal to motivate me to improve!

Just have to say again what a great mini-vacation this was for me, personally. JT, in case I don’t tell you enough, you’re wonderful & I love you. You know what you did… the whole weekend. You’ve earned many “spoil me” points, which you may cash in at your leisure. =)

On other fronts…. Mom announced my sis will kill me for having a nice sunny weekend while her life was miserable. It seems they were both wishing rain on me, since they were both miserable. Tennessee majorly flooded, but I checked on Mom and she hadn’t floated away, though it seems some campers at the racetrack did. Bet there’s hella cleanup to be done before this Race Weekend at BIR. Race weekend means mom will have company… YIPPEE!! Then the weekend after she CLAIMS to be driving to see me in Atlanta at last… we’ll see. I hear sis is doubting her. The plan is to go on to Easter in Alabama.. which reminds me.. I never did buy that sweet 16 present…. another plan for the weekend, I guess. So, I guess this week will be spent cleaning (despite anti-cleaning inspirational emails from Jimmy) and getting ready for house guests and mom. Will do my best to keep work stress at work, and keep up my motivation to train at home. Attitude is everything… and we have to motivate ourselves, because we can’t depend on anyone else to do that. Speaking of… time to change for tennis.

    Just you, presumably. I WANT to do my eyebrow as well, but I’m saving that one for post-Easter familial visit. I think the tattoo will be news enough.. don’t want to risk prompting a drug-intervention or some shit as they try to figure out what’s possessed me.
