    About fifteen minutes after drinking the coffee, I got a headache. Also, felt a little uneasy in my stomach. That passed, but not the headache.

    Confession time: yesterday I did not have the coffee on an empty stomach as suggested. Instead, I had it on top of 1/2 cup of peanut m&ms. Yes, you read that right. This morning, it was on top of nothing. Maybe just a coincidence, but I wonder. Still, you know my rule: one incidence is not proof of a cause. I will do this coffee thing for at least a week.

    Had a dreadful dream last night, that my Honey was rejected for both the jobs he is presently up for. Not the kind of dream I want to share with him, either.

    I am now off to try a three-dog walk. We found our old harness, and adjusted it to fit Chica. The old leash is still MIA, but Ive got clothesline!

    Dreams are just our brains doing the housecleaning. They are meant to be swept up and thrown out.

    So are you finding that coffee works better for you accompanied by food? I am fine with it almost any way, as long as I don't overdo it, and stop by about mid-afternoon. You are quite right that you need several data points to reach a conclusion. People who generalize from a single incident are very foolish. Many, many people are very foolish in that regard.

    The dog walk worked out fairly well. Hard keeping three dogs all going in the same direction at the same time. Just a little bit of aggression. Then later in the day, we did a second walk with my Honey, and that went great. We went to the library and back, and all was peaceful. In total, Chica spent seven hours with us.

    I took her home when I noticed the neighbor's car was back, and told them she came over to our house a lot lately (true), even running inside when we opened the door (true), and asked if it was okay for her to hang out with us when she came over. He said okay, and I told them if they were ever looking for her, to just check over at our place first. Then I gave her back, expecting she would be kept in for the evening. Fifteen minutes later she was back on our porch. I brought her in and she watched an episode of V with us. Then I made her go back, and we ignored her noises. She left eventually, but when I see her this morning I will invite her back in.

    I was impressed with Chloe and Salem. They got to the point of co-existing peacefully, very quickly, I'd say four hours. I know there will still be incidents, and I'm not going to be leaving them alone together, but it was a very good start. Chloe even got to the point of wanting to play, but I don't think Chica is up for that, yet.

    Another horrible job related dream last night. This is getting old, fast. I worry about that enough during the day, does it have to come around at night, too? No word yet on the positions we're waiting on. One new interview set up for today. I need to do a new round of applications myself. Ugh. Rejection sucks. And it is hard to be enthusiastic, knowing I don't really want a job for me, I want one for my Honey. And yet, if I found one before he did, I would be doing it for at least six months. I feel like that is the soonest you can give notice, otherwise it is just not fair on the employer. Maybe I should stick with flyers for cleaning, etc. That's more random, which would be a good thing if he got a job quickly. Of course, not so good if he didn't.

    My mother-in-law sent us a check for our anniversary. We each got five dollars to spend, and used the rest to gas up our vehicle.

    I got myself to sit down QUICKLY in the tub this morning, instead of inching down. Maybe I will get to lying back after all! Of course, the temperature IS only 70 degrees. It is hard to get COLD water out of the tap during the Texas heat, and there's a limit to how much ice my freezer can make in one 24 hour period.

    Getting ready to drink down that caffeine. I am not looking forward to it. I guess this is an exercise in mental toughness, at the least.

    Wow, you have to force yourself to drink coffee and I can't live without several cups of the stuff. Sorry about the bad dreams.

    Dreams are just a way for our mind to sort things out. If you're worrying during your waking hours, then you'll also be worrying during your sleeping hours. It makes it tough to get a good nights sleep, huh? I'm sorry......... Hubby will get a job soon!

    Short notes

    A brief flirtation with a headache, but it didn't develop. And some stomach uneasiness, but not as bad as yesterday.

    Feeling glum and anxious about the job. This whole process is so nerve-wracking!

    Another successful walk with all three dogs.

    I have jerky marinading in the fridge. When I bought my grass-fed meat, I got some beef that was sliced for jerky, thinking I would pick up a dehydrator next time I saw one at the thrift store. Well, no dehydrator has presented itself, and the meat was still siting there in the freezer. I remembered what I had just read, about unusual foods going to waste because we just don't know what to do with them. I determined that that was NOT going to happen. If I can eaten burnt quiche, I can find something to do with this meat. So I looked up how to do it in the oven, and mixed up the marinade. Smells fantastic! It will soak overnight, then dry out all tomorrow on super-low.

    Another find in the freezer was a lump of old roast, already cooked. I think I will make shepherd's pie.

    I have only been buying food items that are VITAL. Condiments are not vital. This marinade used up our Worcestershire sauce and our soy sauce. Things have been used up little by little, but having those two big bottles go at once makes a big difference. The shelf in the door where we keep all those odds and ends is looking forlorn.

    Maybe you should ask neighbor if you can just keep chica... it appears she'd rather be with you than them anyway.

    I was going to suggest putting the jerky in the oven. Brad got a dehydrator for Christmas the year before last. It was given to him with the intention of being used for jerky b/c he "liked" BIL's jerky (he really didn't, just said he did to be polite). I use it for drying the spices and kale I've gotten from the tiny garden we have.

    I hope the bad dreams go away soon.

    Just keep up with your To-Do lists concerning employment, which is probably the best thing you can do for your mental health. Not that you didn't know that, but reinforcement sometimes helps.

    Let us know how the jerky turns out.

    I think we dream about those things that weigh heavily on us. Yes, even the ones where you stand back and go "WTF?!". Those dreams have meaning, at least that is my .02. I had wackadoodle dreams myself last night. Just BELIEVE that he is right for those jobs...defy doubt.

    Three-dog walk eh? How did THAT go?

    Oh, boy. Now Chica is so excited to see me, that she runs into the street to greet my van. The van is so tall, I can't see her when she gets too close. What a tangle!

    What if she does this when it is dark, and I don't see her in time?

    I wonder if I should just give in and call animal control. Surely someone would adopt her. But I don't want to risk that. Can I call them, and then adopt her myself? It would be a little hard to explain.

    I guess I was hoping that my taking Chica in, would shame them into keeping her secure. That was a fail. I wouldn't mind having her, she's a sweet little dog, but I don't feel comfortable asking them for her. But here it is, evening, and have they come out looking for her? No.

    I have to go out to pick up Littlest from her church thing. I guess we can keep her in until I am back, and then send her over to her yard, but that's pretty late, like 10. Would she even get a chance to be let into her house?

    Am I just subsuming my other worries into this little dog's situation? But if I do nothing, and she ends up dead or missing like her puppies, how will I feel then? I have to do SOMETHING.

    I got so excited by how good the two prospects for Honey were going, that I let my search slide a little. But we feel he should have heard something by now, so I'm feeling down again. Need to get back in the saddle and put in some more applications. Or make up flyers.

    Made some chicken soup from leftovers for dinner, and it turned out pretty good, Yay for homemade broth!
