Siobhan, so glad that New man is now no longer the man. I think there is a better match for you out there somewhere! You are smart and a hard worker and fun. You need someone who will add to that - not require carrying!! Better to have no-one than a hanger-on!
Your new cat sounds awesome - that photo is just gorgeous! Any pics of your boy yet? I would love to see him. I hope they all get settled down and start to enjoy each other soon. Those adjustment times are really tough on everyone... Happy Easter - what a wonderful time of the year - so much hope after all the death and dying and torment.
Got some of the worst kind of spam last night! Can you imagine actually sending money to someone like that? Bizarre.
Yes, I am glad I made the decision to cut things off with New Man. Another friend had been making noises about the unsuitability of him as well and made a comment almost identical to David's. That really made me think. When everyone is telling you the same thing...time to listen. But I hope he finds what he is looking for...or something.
The cats are doing well together - not curled up asleep in a big cat pile yet, but co-existing peacefully. I love Oboe so much. He is just so beautiful and good-natured.
Nothing exciting to report on the food front - just regular primal stuff. I have some bay scallops, I'm going to bake them in bacon wraps.
I am happy to report that last night's torrential rain has removed the last vestiges of snow that were hanging on. I'm sure there are still some great piles in parking lots and such, but for all practical purposes it is gone from here. Must say I am glad about that!
He came with that name, and he knows it AND I like it, so it's all good. He is named after his former owners's favorite stop on the organ. I think it is cool and it is a very good pet name as it has a unique sound of the sort that animals respond to. I will try to get some pics of him, unfortunately my camera is complete garbage.
Well, today was a mixed bag. Went to the pool but strangely felt I had no energy or real will to do anything. Actually, I had that ache-y nausea just-not-well feeling you get when you are coming down with something. I splashed around for 20 minutes, then went in the sauna, showered and came straight home. Baked some brazilian tapioca cheese bread and ate some with almond butter and honey. Great combination, BTW. I used ricotta cheese for this batch, mainly because I have some around. The breads didn't puff up and are much harder and flatter. This is not a bad thing, in fact it makes for an excellent sandwich or pizza. Slept in my cave for almost three hours. That was nice. Cats all peaceful. They were separated, not on purpose really, but when it came time to shut the doors they were all settled in different rooms. They remained contented all afternoon.
Here I am at work. All good here, taking a little break. Got some really nice herb tea, it's called Gypsy Cold Care. I don't have a cold, but warm and comforting sounded nice. Elderflower, yarrow, peppermint, hyssop, rose hips, cinnamon, ginger, clove, licorice.
Ate too many carbs and in addition to being hungry an hour later, I had serious brain fog. Too many carbs are not my friend. How did I go through life like that?
Both DH and S2 have bad allergies right now. Since I started immunotherapy and PB not only was this the best winter ever for my asthma (no antibiotics and no oral, IV, or IM steroids - first time in 5 years) and I'm not having any allergy issues. Hard to tell if its one causing more effect than the other, so I'm choosing that they are working synergistically together. Especially since my asthma/allergy doc can't believe how well I'm doing!
Starting wt: 198, Goal: 135, Current with PB: 165
Started at a size 16 down to loose 10
With PB my asthma has improved, low back pain is gone, & I've got more energy
Eating a strict Paleo diet has eliminated my sons extremely bad seasonal allergies and his constant nasal drip and phlem problem. AND completely cleared up his acne And, he lost 140 pounds. Paleo/Primal ROCKS!
