Mea culpa. So sorry people. No big reasons for being AWOL, just a combination of little ones. I've been feeling stretched and worn. I think it's partly the summer whirl around here, with hubby being around all the time (although working from an upstairs bedroom a lot) and wanting to get out and see people, with Translator Son and wife popping out babies and buying a house and all, and visitors coming (a couple coming soon to our place). And I've been draggy because of those supplements, although I think I'm finally starting to come around in that department. Frequent sleeping problems haven't helped much. And I think I was just a little burnt out. I was also getting tired of thinking about food quite that much. So I didn't check in for a couple of days, and once I'm behind on something, I get psyched out.
When in doubt, send a private message. That will turn up in my email inbox.
Anyway, I am so sorry to have worried you all, and I thank you so much for all the good wishes. It will probably take me a few days to get through everybody's journals again, so please bear with me. I hope all is well with all of you.
So, I am still holding the course. I haven't been losing weight though, probably from lack of real movement plus the occasional summer indulgence. Fortunately I found out that hubby's favourite gelato place has pure fruit, sugar-free choices. They don't taste like they're artificially sweetened, but I'll try to get in some time when the chef is around to ask. They make their own from scratch. On the other hand, I'm not gaining, so I'll take that as a victory.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
