Pics pl0x.
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

I unfortunately don't have a side-by-side comparison at hand.

But not wanting to disappoint on the doggo front, here is a picture of my dog dressed as a wizard on Hallowe'en

Yer a wizard, puppy.

As simple as it is, I managed to pull together 2-3 different Excel Workbooks that were being used to track the same damned things, into one. With simple filtering, colorizing, and ease of use.

I'm the only one who uses it, but its going to make things so much better.

After two and a half years of putting in applications, I finally got the call for the job I want.

Grats to you both.

Me, I'm lucky  to have such compassionate people in my life! Empathetic and understanding people, who dust me off and squeeze my shoulder when I take a tumble. Not to mention, good friends who will cushion me when I fall and lift me back up, because they think I'm worthy.

Also, despite late blight killing some of my plants, my garden is still rocking and I'm probably gonna keep feeding renal clinic patients and staff all year long.

Whenever I need a chuckle, a laugh or a giggle, I look up the "Terrible Writing Advice" channel on YouTube.  That way, I can laugh at the stupid ideas of others..and go back and modify my own story ideas before anyone is exposed to them.

Your thesis factors into your GPA?

Ye. The degree is split into 3 semesters, so the marking for the last semester is all based on the thesis. Its weighted so it counts for like 2 and a half modules.

It's like Netflix for the movie theater. Pay a subscription fee to watch one movie per day.

My mom's been visiting and she insists on cooking, etc even though I keep telling her I'll cook. Plus we've painted a triptych for the bedroom based off a photo I took at the gulf coast, and it's going to look freaking awesome when it's done.

Envious. I wish my mother cooked anything, anything at all.

I always get stuck cooking for the holidays. There isn't a single aunt or uncle on my mom's side that can cook. Or clean, apparently.

Oh, uh, I'm happy today because... I rode the stationary bike and elliptical for an hour and a half combined and wasn't even bothered, except for the sweat.

Go away, last 10 lbs, so I can slow booty bulk, thanks.

Despite feeling like garbage yesterday, and getting BK Lounge for comfort food (and certainly paying for it 7 hours later), I woke up this morning and checked my blood sugar and it was at 130. No, that's not GOOD for a morning test, but its certainly better than I thought it was going to be after eating trash.

I need to do better about drinking water and avoiding carbs, but its just so hard. Especially when I can't eat half the meat out there either.

Stuffing yourself with protein works for me. You might have the shits at first, but... Yeah. It's worth it, to me.

I have incredibly bad insulin resistance because of my PCOS, so I try hard not to do carbs. I was my pre baby weight last Sunday... Then I went out and ate Italian food.

Don't ask how much I weighed on Monday, rofl.

The bigger issue at hand is that I'm not sure what my tolerance level is for gout. I know all the things that cause it, but I can eat a burger with bacon and be fine.

Or, I can have a breakfast sausage and three days later I'm crying like a child.


I had a banana and some blueberries for lunch, and a protein bar at like 3pm. I got home and checked my sugar levels, before I sat down to eat dinner and I was at 110. Which is a bit low for me in the first place... but I'll take it. I don't like being in my 30s and sitting on full blown Sugar.

My sick old man cat so obviously feels better after having his medication (for pancreatitis).  He's up on my desk loving me again.  And I've finally figured out a way to give it to him without him having me forever.  Cheese!
