    I feel so *light* as if that whole real estate deal had been a weight tied to me like a ball and chain. I really don't think I ever want to own a piece of property ever again in my life. I just don't see the point.

    Now I can get on with things I need to do for camping like packing. Doing some wash first would probably be a good idea.

    • Ahhh... good old fashioned relief.
      It's a good feel.

      I'm sure your camping adventures are going to be excellent!
      Wolf Cub is going to love some back to nature.
      I don't think you will mind too much either.

        27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

        • Oh, yes, the Wolf Cub goes where I go if at all possible. He travels really well. He sits down and doesn't fuss or need to stick his head out the window. And humans need pit stops long before he does.

          Back when GMan and I were together before (five years ago) the three of us did some camping together and it was a lot of fun. Back then we only had a long weekend before he needed to be back for work. Now we can take out time and ramble a bit more.

              Thanks. We're heading out Tuesday. About 3-4 weeks totally unplugged. Sounds nice.

              I'm sure people will still be arguing about optimal macronutrient ratios here when I get back.

              • Congrats on finally finishing with the house and also have a great time on your trip!

                I just spent the day rearranging the furniture in our place (to set up DS's room), and enlisted help for the next two weekends to get three more components done: making a corner upholstered headboard, making curtains to cordon off the closet part of the room, and add a second, upper shelf to the top part of the closet area (and a railing for both shelves).

                Once that task is finished, we move DS's toys back into the closet in his room (currently, they are in the lounge simple because we have no where else for them). And throughout the week, we're going to declutter one basket at a time and get things sorted for the closet.

                I managed to get through DS's clothes (too small, just right, stuff to grow into) as well as my own clothing (everything is in good condition), and DH sorted his as well (and got rid of some shoes that were worn out! I'm so proud of him! LOL).

                This allowed me to rearrange the lounge a bit, too.

                I then pulled a bench in from the greenhouse which was basically just there and not used, and so I wiped it down, brought it into the lounge, and put it like a table/shelf under the big window. I put one of my nifty army trunks underneath it, and stacked some books and magazines both on it and the bench. one mid-century danish modern chair on each side (one with footstool/bench), and that is done. It looks nice and open, and functional for how we live -- which is mostly reading and writing -- and this way we can sit comfortably by the fire and the window, reading books and drinking tea (with a place for the tea cup no less!). lol

                I look forward to my other corner being cleared (where the toys are), but I still have no clue what I'm going to do there. maybe nothing, or maybe move the bench/trunk over there and hten use the other trunk between the chairs under the window (bringing the chairs closer together. Yes, probably that. I love the way the bench looks like a shelf with all kinds of respectable storage and stuff. So, that would probably look awesome and fill the space, bringing our chairs closer together and having another awesome trunk as a side table for the chairs. Hmm. nifty idea. I'm going to measure my wall and bench again.

                UPDATE: measured it and it won't work (too long), but I got some other ideas besides, so that's all good.

                • Thanks, Zoe.
                  Sounds like you are getting your living space arranged nicely. Love the mid century danish modern.

                  • My BFF introduced me to a little hole in the wall place near her house that has a big patio out back that not only allows dogs but encourages them. They put out water bowls, pass out bones for the doggies to gnaw on (they specialize in ribs), and give out dog biscuits.
                    Another nice thing is that you can order the ribs without all the cornbread type sides and you get to put your own sauce. We asked and two of their four sauces were sugar free (the spicier ones) which suited us just fine. Delicious.

                    I think this is going to be the Wolf Cub's favorite restaurant of all time. I just passed my ribs to him as I finished them. The place was totally cool with doggies eating off the floor. We brought the bones home and he is spreading them out all over the living room having a second go at them all.

                    Just a couple of happy carnivores.

                    • That restaurant sounds awesome, even if you don't have a pup to bring along!

                      Yes, nesting is nice. My aunt is coming at christmas. I feel the need to get the place sorted for her (and for us). Also, it took me two years to figure out what I wanted to do with the space and make peace with So Much Beige.

                      Are you guys doing a lot of hikes on the camping trip, or just short day ones, or what? I'm planning a lot of day hikes for when my aunt comes.

                          Yes, even the people who didn't have animals seemed to be enjoying watching them and the dogs that were there were all well behaved. I think it's nice for the stigma of dogs=dirty=not acceptable in an eating establishment to get broken down. Grok wouldn't have kicked the domesticated wolves out of the cave when it was dinnertime.

                          Yes, we are planning on lots of hiking when we get up to some higher elevations in Utah and it's a little cooler. We are going to be heading through some really hot places on the way like Las Vegas where you just keep going with AC on full blast and don't roll down the windows.

                          Hi Dragonfly. I saw you over at the Dirty Carnivore site. Isn't it nice to have a place where people don't recoil in horror and tell you how *deficient* you are going to be without heaps of greenery every day?

                          Is yours already on the market or are you just working up to it?

                            Boise is so dog-friendly! Lots of great cafes that welcome the pooches.

                            Yes, thanks for turning me on to the DC site. Wish there were more folk posting there more often.

                            Funnily enough, I don't get any flak for my diet. My husband likes more veggies, but has acquiesced to my lack of greens as he watches me feel better/not bloated, more energy with my high fat diet. Maybe it's all the chocolate butter I share with him, lol!

                            At our Traditional Foods Gathering potluck this weekend, I only drank broth from the meat & veggies and ate chocolate butter, since I had already eaten steak & eggs in the morning. No comments from anyone.

                            We have tenants until the end of July, then we will list Our house. For now it is on Zillow and Craigslist.

                            • I've been over to DC a bit too...

                              I do eat some veggies. I like my cool crunchy romaine salads now that it's summer...
                              And I like some fruits for treats on occasion.
                              But I never, ever, put any plant matter in my mouth out of obligation or just for "nutrition".
                              Meat and offal and sea food is for nutrition.
                              Sometimes, like you PB, I eat all meat with my "condiment" veg.

                              Husband would certainly never complain as I've been sick for so long... over 15 years, as long as we've been together... and I'm finally at my healthiest now. Healthiest since becoming sick that is.
                              My autoimmune diseases are still present, but under control!

                              I had a spat of good health once before on Atkins... it was great, but then I was supposed to bring back the healthywholegrain carbs to living levels and got sicker again... that's hindsight of course.
                              At the time I was all, "Well, I've had a little remission period and now I'm sick again." since there was no data connecting my disease to autoimmune or diet at the time, that's exactly what my doctors told me too. *sigh*
                              I really wish I had KNOWN.
                              I think it would have prevented this whole brain thing.

                              I love it when 20yr olds come on MDA and are all... but I eat wheat products and feel fine!
                              Yeah. I did too... and then I woke up one day with an incurable autoimmune disease and no one told me that it was autoimmune because this was 15 years ago, and it's a rare disease that doesn't get much funding, and they hadn't even done that research yet... so 12 years later I got another autoimmune disease from continuing to abuse my body with wheat.
                              And I'm not that rare a case... it's getting more and more prevalent every year. All the fibros and lupus, and more really young people getting diagnosed. And doctors are not telling patients to change their diets to reduce their symptoms.
                              Meh. /end rant

                                Yeah, the conversations on DC are kind of like slow-mo. You post something and someone answers in a month or so, then you post back. Although I think Phil and Satya live on that site.

                                Men tend to be more supportive when you offer them lotsa steakaneggz and bacon. Most guys won't argue with that.
