  • Here's what I think. If he wants to email me or call me and have a real conversation, he is definitely welcome to. BUT IF I FEEL PHYSICALLY ILL WHEN A PERSON CONTACTS ME, THAT IS MY BODY TELLING ME THAT I DON'T NEED TO BE IN RELATIONSHIP WITH THAT PERSON. </shouty capitals>

    I am listening to my body's wisdom. The end.

                Oh my god, that's AWESOME! Your baby likes it? Fantastic!

                Soup recipe:

                First, put a pound of marrow bones with a cup of apple cider vinegar in a crock pot. Put it at least enough water to cover the bones, or you can go crazy and fill up the pot. Cook this on low for two days. After two days, take the liquid out and cool and store in your fridge or freezer. You can save the marrow bones to use again if you want, give them to a dog, or throw out. (Unless your crock pot is super old and it's wiring is bad or your electrical wiring in your home is bad, you probably won't set your house on fire because crock pots were meant to be left on all day, you paranoid people!)

                Take a bunch of this bone broth, say a big mason jar of it, and put it in your soup pot or crock pot.

                Chop up some garlic and fry it in whatever oil you like.

                Chop up some andouille sausage or whatever sausage you like and add it to the frying garlic. However much you like is fine. I like andouille because it will add spiciness to the soup. When this is nicely browned put it in in your soup pot/crock pot.

                Take some kale or other leafy green. Frozen or fresh is fine. If fresh, cut out the center rib, and chop it all up. If frozen just put it in the pot. I like a lot.

                Spice it up with whatever you want. I put a bay leaf, some fines-herbes, pepper, whatever.

                For crock pots cook on low if you want it in 6-8 hours or more, cook on high if you want it in 2-4 hours.

                I guess for my soup, it was totally delicious, but I wanted more kale, and something like turnips or parsnips in there too.

                One thing I've learned about soups is that basically just put stuff in the pot that seems like it will go well together and they probably will. :-D

                • The soup sounds delicious. I love soup and could totally go for a mug of it right now as it is SO cold in our office.

                  • Thank you!! Will make asap, I still have marrow bones in the freezer.

                    And I too have been sorely disappointed with US Wellness- they were out of everyhting. Hey, can you eat the dog burgers? They are ground beef with organ meats, and cheaper. They don't put any crap in, do they?

                    • I'm making sleep my primary focus these days. I've upended my schedule. I'm going to bed between 7pm and 8pm, and tomorrow I'll start 7pm for good. Today and yesterday I woke up at 4pm, so I'm going for 9 hours of sleep, which is a total luxury in this day and age. And city. I made a Don't-Break-The-Chain chart to keep myself on track.

                      I wake up at 4, drink some water, and do my morning pages and affirmations from The Artists Way for about 45 minutes. Then I do 20-40 mins of yoga. Working up to 60 mins. Then I make coffee and eat breakfast. Then I shower, get dressed and do my hair and makeup.

                      I feel better, and I look fabulous. And I've gotten a lot done. I'd probably be able to fit in an hour of creative writing too, if I do Jay Robb powder for breakfast again. IDEAS! PRODUCTIVITY!

                      What is a total miracle is a) how quickly I fall asleep, and b) how easily I wake up at 4am.

                      • Man. I just adopted a kitty from an old roommate of mine. We were roommates when he got her. She is pissing up a storm, and I am so annoyed. I don't remember her doing this when he got her. She peed on my bed TWICE the first night, and now she is banned from the bed. I cleaned everything up with Nature's Miracle. Then I think she peed on the floor because IT SMELLS LIKE CAT PEE SO BAD I COULDN'T SLEEP LAST NIGHT. I got up, cleaned and mopped the floors and re-applied Nature's Miracle to the bed, and slept on the couch in the living room. I can't do this. I can't have an animal that thinks that my room is her litter box. I might give her to my cousin to be a barn cat. The annoying thing is she hasn't wet her bed, she has wet MY BED! Argh!

                        Here's what I'll do before I send her off to a barn: switch her food. Cats are obligate carnivores and many commercial foods are filled with stuff that a cat in the wild would never eat, LIKE GRAINS. Sound familiar, primal friends? Cats can get the DIABEETUS and kidney and urinary problems from TOO MANY CARBOHYDRATES in their diet. So if we can get her healthy with wet food, we'll do that. Otherwise, it's off to the farm for you! I think I'm more of a dog person now anyway.

                        • How long have you had her? She might be acting out because she's unhappy about being moved. Cats are very snarky like that.

                          • She could also be dealing with UTI or kidney problems and she is letting you know. Our cat used to pee in the dog dish to tell us something wasn't right.
                            Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
