Friday morning was a mess. I had been woken up several times by emergency phone calls from work. We had some network issues that required my time. I didn’t get enough sleep, so I drove to work on Friday, as I had Thursday. I did manage to ride my bike to work on Monday through Wednesday though.
Saturdays are often a good day to sleep in. I was awoken early this morning by a thunderstorm. After falling back asleep I was awoken again by a phone call from work at 6:00 a.m. Our website was offline. A quick check revealed all internal stuff was functional, so it was the web hosting company. A few phone calls later everything was resolved.
The thunderstorm had passed, I still hadn’t had my morning coffee, but I really needed to clear my head to prevent a bad mood from ruining the day. My lovely wife called and suggested I ride my bike. So I did.
I headed out on my 11-mile loop. It was still raining lightly when I left, but it stopped pretty early into the ride. I wasn’t in a hurry. It wasn’t a training ride. I just wanted to relax. So I took almost an hour to ride the 11 miles, then rode to the coffee shop to get my caffeine fix.
I’m now home, and things are looking up! The sky in mostly sunny and blue, the temperatures are warming up, and I’ll be watching my youngest daughter at her high-school graduation ceremony tonight.
