    Annie - thank you for that. The op went beautifully. was quite an extensive tie, so not sure how the wee fella has breast fed all this time. Maybe DD flow was actually very fast like she said, and he just didn't need to latch much ??????
    and as he got older he was up 3 - 4 times in the night - so who knows ????
    anyway he is now one wee cut boy, but I am sure after a good night sleep will be bouncing off the walls - as alot of boys do !!!!!!!


    so nothing else to report except that my little five hour jaunt to Timaru and back, coupled with the no coffee for three days has left Gwamma a little fragile and tired !!!!!!!
    Policeman cousin is cooking tonight - so yay for the boys in blue !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    oh thats right - I did something very naughty. We met the Anesthetist before the surgery in his shirt and tie looking all official - then he popped in after the op, in his scrubbs - just to say how well it all went - and Gwamma - being Gwamma did suggest that she does like to see a boy in uniform.............. which had the effect of embarrassing the DD no end, causing the Anesthetist to blush, and then he winked at Gwamma as he left the room !
    hahahahahaha - best fun !!!!!!!!

    Hi Gwamma and all,

    Very glad all went well with the surgery!

    Gwamma, I think I missed why you're quitting coffee. It's tough to do. I tried in college and after being a raving bitch for four days, my friends encouraged me to go back to it - the same group of friends that were undyingly supportive when I quit smoking. LOL. In my early forties I gave it sort of a half-hearted go by mixing caf with decaf and gradually decreasing the caf. All that happened was I drank more coffee. I'm truly an addict. (Hangs head in shame.)

    Changing the clocks is going swimmingly. *cough* Stayed awake for 24 hours, fell asleep at 645am, woke almost exactly five hours later and spent most of Monday with a brain full of fog. When the fog lifted, after a second mug of espresso with coconut oil in it, my brain craved sleep. I slept. So, here I sit at 2am on MDA. Oh how I miss the resilience of youth. (Though truth be told, my last two decades have been my favorites.)

    My 21 day thing is going well. I'm officially more than a quarter of the way through. I have saved about $27 and not consumed about 5000 calories which is part of the reason I'm doing this. I can't call myself primal or even remotely healthy when alcohol comprised over a third of my calories. On day 22, I will indulge and then do a 21 day thing again. Funny thing is that even in my party youth, I didn't drink much alcohol. Drugs, yes, but not alcohol, and even the drug use was light. I've read that it's easier to become an habitual user as you get older. I forget the physiological reasons why.

    Anyway, except for being slightly addled from weird and lack of sleep, things here are pretty much okay. You all are about 20 hours ahead of us, so you've already done your Tuesday, while here sun-up is about four hours away.

    is your 21 day thing no booze for 21 days Joanie? i am a true caffeine addict. i reckon i am old enough to pick my nefarious habits so i will stick with coffee and exercise. i may have to go have a bit of a party before the weekend sometime if my ankle keeps hurting as i will need to distract myself somehow. sun has gone down here and it is dark. tuesday's almost gone!

    No alcohol and as close to 100% primal as possible. So also no non-primal day once a week. I never go overboard on non-primal day, but I might have bread or a small serving of pasta. I tried to do a 70 day no alcohol thing, fell off after about a week, and thought that was too scary to deal with. I don't really think I'm physically an alcoholic because neither my brain nor my body feel bad when I quit. But I am certainly an habitual user, and that's not good. It's a matter of breaking the mindset of "it's 5pm, not much to do, think I'll drink," more than anything else. So I've mostly been keeping myself busy or distracted at that time of day. Once the corner store closes at 7pm, I know I'm good because I never want to drink enough to get in the car to go get it.

    I often google "what time is it in new zealand" before I post so I can have a reference point as to what part of the day it is there.

    I've grown way too fond of espresso to ever quit. Very low tech - a little stove top espresso pot. Organic beans I order from costco.com, and a little walmart coffee grinder that keeps plugging away after seven years.

    I hope your ankle feels better soon. Do self-medicate/party. I'll be with you in spirit.
