F.Y.I.-- sweet potatoe fries are usually coated in something not paleo approved to help them with being crunchy. That's the big lie, people think they are eating something safe and clean but really it's still poison. :( Plus, they could have been cooked in the same oil used for cooking the onion rings. I have found that the cleaner I eat, the more clean food my body demands. It has even recently rejected cashews. Yes, they are toxic in large amounts but my body is saying no to even a handful or two. :( I'm glad though that you felt great for work! You may have even ended up a bit lighter on the scale the next day lol. :) Thanks for stopping by! We can do this!

I'm so glad you are going to go home and visit your families!! They will be so happy to see you. I hope I can start losing some weight soon too. Hubby and I are talking about it.

The porch looks great. Benny is doing some final tweaks and we are starting to look for storage now.

I get it. My sister lets me come and workout with her at her gym for free but her schedule is so tight that it's usually only one day a week. I try to squeeze in another workout or two on my own at home. I use her gym for the weight machines. :)

I want the book in my hands too. I have limited use for technology. My brother it a total techie. He is a computer trouble shooter for the state of Illinois and goes to all the county court houses to take care of problems. Everything he does is on some device. I'm the opposite, like my dad. I prefer to be in nature, outside, messing with animals. I like hard copies.

I would hate to ask my vet. When they accidentally sent us the pure lasix that was supposed to be mixed they didn't offer to send the compounding liquid. They told us we could make our own and mix it. I'm a nurse. not a pharmacist.

Bun is everyone's mommy and Squeaker is now bigger than Bun and everyone else. She is very childlike but she has always been very mothering. She insists on sleeping on top of Bun and sometimes Bun doesn't want to do that. They have stopped actively fighting. They still grumble at each other some but all I have to do is go calmly talk to them and they quit.

The back porch is enclosed but is very small. It is more like a mud room/storage room. I think it is 7 feet by 9 feet. We have our upright freezer back there and a dorm fridge plus a baker's rack and a broom closet. A place for our boots when they are muddy or snow covered. It is not a sitting room. We have a 22 feet by 11 feet screen room for that which has our spa and lots of wicker furniture in it. The screen room would be perfect for Bruce and the dogs. It has plastic windows we can put in the winter too to make it warm.

My hubby has had kidney stones and his family on his mom's side has had tons of relatives with them. Hubby's cousin had renal failure from them and is one of the first people in the U.S. to have dialysis. It was crude back then. He died. My mom had renal failure too. Ian had blood and calcium in his urine in kindergarten and ended up going to my boss who was a nephrologist. So we figured this was coming.

As a caregiver who has had to experience death on a regular basis I found that I needed to be able to get away from it. I don't like to watch anyone suffer but as nurse I knew I was the one who could best give them comfort. With my own family it just makes me feel miserable and impotent. Seeing my relatives in pain was horrible. I could not deal with that 24/7.

I totally can relate to how you feel. When I was younger I always seemed to be behind everyone else all the time. Like we were on different planes. My friends were falling in love, getting married, making career decisions, having kids, and I felt left out. Actually I was. I even wondered if I was normal - if something was wrong with me. My cousin, who was my best friend, was the same. They had to give her hormones at 18 to start her to menstruate. We neither one had any normal female urges for women our age. We were so active. I didn't think I would be a mother ever but I finally caught up with everyone and I was a mom at 32. I was one of the older mom's in Ian's school class back then. It is more common now so you won't notice it like I did. There are advantages to being older when you have your child. You will be ready. I think you need to keep in mind that it isn't the question of will this happen but when. I feel the time is right for you and you know it and should follow through with this. Whatever it takes. Don't let anything stop you. You have accomplished some fairly amazing things so this will be doable. Don't allow yourself to feel defeated. You are nearing the time when you will accomplish what you want - one way or another.
I see you as being in preparation for a big life changing event.

Hi Eddy. I'm really not sure what Harry would like best. He was so close with Wills that he might not take to another purrsonality. I've looked on the Humane society website and maybe someday.
