    Geek and I went out for chinese buffet. Salt didn't really bother me, but I guess I need to start trying to open my jaw further. It was hard to take more than "ladylike bites." Still wasn't very hungry. Had hot & sour soup, fried rice, pot stickers, the filling from some crab rangoon, and some flan, whch amounted to grand total of two plates and a cup, none of which were completely full. If I met even maintenance calories for yesterday, I'll be surprised.
    Froot Loop is no longer broken, she's been fixed. The damn dog is acting better after her hysterectecomy than I am after a tooth pulling. I can also tell she knows who's in charge, and it ain't her. She seemed think this was punishment and was all kinds of lovey dovey and apologetic. She even put herself over by the tether and sat there like she expected to get locked up. I went over and petted and hugged her to let her know she wasn't in trouble. She seemed to accept it, but she's still trying to be a model puppy. I think she's afraid I'll leave her at the vet again if she misbehaves and she'll end up missing more parts.

    Went for Mexican food tonight. Pescado coronel with dry salad, 2 oysters, refried beans, and Mexican rice. Pescado coronel is catfish smothered in ranchero sauce, cheese, and shrimp. Chewing wasn't an issue, keeping all the food in only half my mouth while chewing was. You ever tried eating a giant chunk of lettuce with only half your mouth?
    Now, I'm zonked. I think I need to see in Aleve works on this pain.

    I'm not in pain anymore. Still kinda tired, but I chalk that up to my body funneling what little food I've given it toward healing.
    Froot Loop is healing well. She seems to know what the tape bandage is for and hasn't messed with it, so far. She's still not up to par, but I'm not expecting her to be. She is wanting to fetch and play tug, which is a good sign. She's also back on track with commands, including differentiating between "chunka," "lizard," and "rope," in addition to her basics.
    Enjoying an eggnog latte. I need to figure out how to make my own eggnog so I can make my own eggnog coffee.

    Were I the stereotypical, bitter wife, I'd swear my MIL was trying to sabotage me. I know in reality, she chooses what sounds good and in sync with what effort she can put into it that day. Does it bug me when dinner is ziti and garlic bread with no other options? Yes, especially when the bread is cottonseed oil laden because she doesn't read ingredient labels. Am I going to complain? Not until every part of the meal is cottonseeded. She's absentminded and its not worth the effort when it'll just slip her mind again. I love her dearly, more than my own mother most of the time. I consider Sunday dinner with the in laws to be part of my 20%, even if it's rarely worth it in terms of taste.
    I finally know what it's like to have a family without drama and relative normalcy. You may not think that's a big deal; you may even wonder why I want something so boring. It's what I rarely got.as a kid, so it's a novelty I refuse to take lightly or for granted.

    If I can eat it without screaming, breakfast will be an apple with nutella knockoff.
    I made the mistake of watching HGTV last night and getting ideas. I may put on my more forgiving winter coat and do some raking tonight in the backyard. I won't get to that planter, but I hope to at least get the yard mostly raked and rid of dog shit before nightfall. When I can dismantle that stupid hipstertastic cinder block planter, I'll repurpose it to grow succulents, cacti, and shit that would actually survive this region, not a fucking hibiscus. I still want to replace the range hood, but that means cutting a hole in the roof and running duct work so we can install one that's externally vented, which in turn requires research to do it right.

    Raking, good exercise, terrible chore.

    Our yard is full of leaves and I don't think we'll have the moolah to get the guy we usually have to come and do it. So I may be joining you on this in a few weeks. We started paying a guy after the first 4 years of 400+ bags of leaves. We may just rent a blower this year and get it done ourselves. Next house I want no trees or yard care planned into our monthly expenses.

    We don't have many trees, but the live oak is a prolific shedder, and the dog is a prolific shitter, even grain free.

    Sad face. I figured out what's caused the bloating and gas of astronomic proportions these past several weeks: white potatos. I get to cross those off my list of safe, "empty" carbs and toss them back in the DNE pile. Anyone want 2 lb mini red potatoes?
