    Hope work went okay and you sleep well today. Wishing you great sleep weather (I liked cloudy rainy days when I worked nights).

    Work work work. Hospital is full of really whiny, needy, anxiety-ridden people. Well, you say, they are sick. Actually not really. They're not that sick. It's kind of a rural medicine thing - it's not hard to get admitted to the hospital here. People are often admitted if the doc doesn't feel they can care for themselves, at least in the short term. Or because the person has no car and they are afraid they will go home and take a turn for the worse. Stuff like that. And there are a lot of chronically ill people around here that are frankly a pain in the @ss. People who want someone to come in their room and take the tea bag out of the cup for them. And yes, they are perfectly capable of doing this themselves. And they often come in with a menu of stuff they want, and they generally get it whether it is indicated or not. Okay, enough ranting. It's a job.

    I have sinned. Was awake during the day, then fell back to sleep and woke up really, really late. Was very hungry, no time to eat. I stopped at the food co-op and got some stuff, all of which needed cooking - except the gluten-free muffin I grabbed. It's made with rice starch and tapioca. Damn, it was good. I shudder to think of how many carbs were in that thing. Luckily it was relatively small. Of course an hour later I was hungry again. But I had some pork roast and I think that will do me for awhile.

    I'm off for awhile after this. A conference in Portland (Maine) this weekend with our pastor and hopefully one or two others, and a 3-day retreat next week. I am badly in need of some time off, time away from this place. It's been really, really stressful lately.

    That sounds more like it.

    It is good. I've made it more than once. And a variation for pizza crust. It is carby though, so save it for days when you're not having any bananas or sweet potatoes or whatever.

    Your gluten-free muffin was just a peccadillo. Muffins were probably my favourite comfort food. I've now got a good supply of primal muffins in the freezer, so I can get a more virtuous hit when I need it.

    Enjoy your retreat. It really is so good to get away from it all sometimes.

    Well Judg, now I am definitely making those carb-y little bread-y things. I have all the ingredients and a free evening. This could be disaster. (Mantra...don't eat the entire recipe...don't eat the entire recipe...)

    Luckily those gluten-free muffins are far, far away. Even I won't drive 20 miles for a muffin. The sad thing is that I never really liked muffins and even in my SAD days saw them for the evil that they were - 400-500 empty calories that leave you hungrier than before you ate them. But they were always being presented to me with great fanfare, so I ate them. But these gluten-free things are really delicious. Did I mention there is a gluten-free bakery somewhere around here? The goods are, of course, processed junk, even though they are stamped 'organic, natural, local' etc. Made with potatoes and rice. 'Nuf about that.

    Slept very late and woke up really hungry. Funny, I feel lighter, like I am losing again, but the scale hasn't moved. I had two Applegate hot dogs (comfort food and protein all in one) and a spaghetti squash fritter which turned out more like a pancake, which is okay. Have that very nice satisfied feeling one gets from a good primal meal.

    We had a cold stretch and I wrestled my storm doors in place, and now it is in the 70's. Of course it will be chilly tonight, and I will be glad they are on.

    Looked at the carnivores playing with each other in my unmade bed and remembered how lucky I am and what I work for, which is this rather nice life I live. So I am putting work out of my mind for awhile.

    Haven't put this in my journal, but I started using homemade toothpaste over a month ago and am having good results. I had tried it before, brushing with soap, but my teeth started to ache. This time around, after my last dental cleaning, I mixed up some calcium powder (just bought a supplement and crushed it), coconut oil, baking soda, and a little stevia. I pour a little peroxide over my toothbrush before and after brushing. The stevia dramatically improves the flavor. My teeth are very clean, much cleaner than they would normally be. I have been looking at them and the last few days have noticed white streaks in them. Is this remineralization? It is only noticeable up close. I like the homemade stuff, my teeth feel better and it is unbelievably cheap. I still floss. You'll have to pry my dental floss out of my cold, dead hands. (Along with my mascara and lipstick)

    I've had those little cheesy-balls at Churrascaria Plataforma in NYC (maybe my favorite restaurant in the world). They are great!

    I think you have a great attitude about your job, and your life in general. I've found that when one aspect of my life is troubling to me, I go for awhile hyper-focusing on it, almost to the point where it becomes unbearable, all the while forgetting that much of the rest of my life is good, or wonderful and that I've taken that for granted.

    Typically there is some moment, some epiphany that suddenly reminds me that on the whole, I'm lucky too.

    Watching the sunrise (for me) almost always helps me to remember what my priorities ought to be. But staring at a fire in the fireplace or watching kitties play can do it too. It kinda allows one to disengage the angst and to exhale a bit.
