This time of year is my most stressful time work-wise, add to that issues at home, among others, and boom, I'm done like dinner...

This was me in April and May. Rest and cutting loose a number of obligations helped.

Try doing nothing for a few days. And I mean nothing. Just sleep in, read a book, and do nothing. It'll be tough for you, but just do it.

My mother in law has Alzheimer's. She can remember things very vividly from 30 years ago, but thinks I haven't talked to her in months even though we had lunch together last week.

Just sayin'...

Yeah, my Dr. recommended a CT. Debating... haven't met deductible, so it would make more sense to do it in January.

Over the last few days I only managed to get about 4 hours of sleep each night. Stress from some trivial crap that I was letting get to me kept my brain spinning Thursday and Friday, and yesterday I spent eight hours in the car to meet up with my god son and spend time with him for his 15th birthday.

Today I would like to go do something, like ride my bike for a couple of hours or weights at the gym, but instead I am just doing couch intervals and reading. I may let myself walk the dogs later.

Thanks everyone. Looking forward to getting back on the bike.

If only it were possible to make this in your very own kitchen...

Oh wait.

Shush that's too much work. I am lazy, and therefore only eat things that are pre-made and over priced.

I suspect the kid needs supervision to make PB&J. Open flames would surely be off limits.

jsutkeepspining 12-08-13 12:37 PM

i don't need supervision anymore, but 3 months ago...

It'll build character. Also enable you to survive as an adult.

Had a good day marshalling at the crits yesterday. It was fine and warm. No-one crashed on my corner and I got to see some good racing. Standing on the inside of a fast sweeper when the elite guys come past makes for a nice rush. makes up for being to fat and slow to be able to race: I would be dropped within a couple of laps of even the slowest one.

Looks like every winter on my side of the east bay hills.

I took the rock star out for a 30m run earlier. Ridley's become quite the runner. Then came home, made grilled cheese for Mrs. Ex and I, and watched the righteous defeat the dopers on the gridiron.

Yes, I truly believe that the 49ers are all steroid free and the Seahawks are Festina in shoulder pads.

What's Ridley on?

I have not been able to hear out of my left ear for 3 days now... This is getting old fast!

Nice. Never got above freezing here. I'm trying to ride my bike every month now. December: Check

Obligatory 'global warming' doesn't exist.

Congrats FB, that's a lot of hard work paying off.

EX: I've had the same pair of Asolo boots for over 15 years. They've seen four continents and many soles, but the uppers are still going strong. I'd *very* highly recommend them.

on an unrelated note, I'm looking to pick up some more track gear in particular: a 172.5 crank, Dura Ace or comparable. Anyone have anything they'd be willing to part with?

Weird sleep patterns due to interrupted sleep. Junior seems to wake up 1-2x a night and I can't sleep well anymore because I wake up when I hear him fussing. I end up napping during the day. Saturday two big naps, yesterday (now it's yesterday anyway) I napped in the morning as well as in the afternoon. Woke up just now after a very brief sleep. Ugh.
