Side. I should have read all these questions before starting this, because they are not exactly interesting or fun.
It is a pouring rain day. I cannot tell you how much I love pouring rain days. That’s all my cat books on the table. And my box with essential oils, which I have been playing with. 🙂
Tried sleeping on my futon last night. I figured out it is just too hard. Maybe a piece of memory foam cut to fit would help? I don’t know, but my entire body hurts today. Like sleeping on the floor. Noooo.
I have lost over ten pounds in the past month, basically because I am not eating much at all. Day before yesterday I had chips (crisps) with sour cream (nothing to add to make an actual dip), and a package of six tiny cheese crackers. Yesterday I had the crackers and a chicken hot dog. Chicken hot dogs, fyi, have no flavor at all. Next time I am specifying Nathan’s to my homemaker, who does the shopping for me. I am trying to figure out what to eat that I can manage to prepare, and that actually is something I would want to eat. I need protein, I think. Instead, I’ve eaten corn chex a lot of days. That and a cup of coffee is it for the day, some days. I seem never to feel hungry at all, and only eat because I have to with some pills I take. This started before I lost Gertrude, so it’s not depression over losing her. Not sure what is going on, but hey, I lost over ten pounds. What’s not to love?
Speaking of Marie, I had her watch me make the coffee to see if I was doing something different. No, I was not. So why is hers always, always better than mine. We make it exactly the same way. Same water, same coffee, same pot. This is making me crazy. I only have one cup a day and I want it to be really good. Unfortunately, she won’t come every day and make it for me. I did ask. 🙂
Trying to avoid as much political crap as I can, but I still do sign petitions here and there. Today there was one to have members of the gov have to use Trumpcare if it passes, just like the rest of us. As it is, they get everything free. They have no connection to actual people, of whom I’m not sure they are ones. This country has fallen into such disgrace. I blame really bad education. Seriously. The level of ignorance is appalling. What do they teach in school now? Very little, I think.
