Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Housewife

A little bit less weight and little bit of an update.
I'm down to 220, as of this morning on the scale. That's a 10 pound loss since the beginning of the year, so yay!

I've got a nifty weight-ticker here, but for some reason I can't successfully hot-link to it.

I officially give up on reading Every Single Entry in my friends list. I'm now reading backwards from whenever I have the time, and I have a couple of journals set up to notify me of new entries. When that's working.

Flar is doing well. His incisions look good, and we get to play doctor (including masks and gloves) when I changed his dressings. His doctor prescribed Lortab for the pain, which is keeping him comfortable, and sleepier than usual. He started out on one tab per three hours, and has dropped down to every four hours. He's been walking around the house, sitting in the family room and the recliner in our bedroom, and today he's graduated back to bed -- getting out of bed was hard enough that he avoided it for the first few days.

For the last two weekends, I made cookies on Sunday. Flar has now declared Sundays to be Cookie day. (And yes, I've been eating some of the cookies, and still losing weight.)

Critter went to Thunder Over Louisville with Agtiger and his daughter yesterday. It was great to see Agtiger again - it's been a few years. I'd never met his daughter before, although I believe she spent three or four days of her gestation here.

Speaking of which, it's getting to be about that time, to put up invitations to this year's potluck. The party previously known as the PWP will be henceforth called the AWP, for Anybody Wanna Potluck, as we both widen the invitation target, and take the primary focus away from specifically polyamory. Look for more info Real Soon Now.

But it is high time for me to be making with the cookie making. I've decided to make extruded butter cookies today, so I get to play with a gadget.

Congratulations...don't worry about reading. I have the same problem so I read what I can and tell people to text me if they have an entry they want me to read.

I'm so far behind on my friends' page. I'm at least trying to catch up on most recent stuff. Glad Flar is doing ok. Must be a bit stressful.
What kind of cookies? Cookies are a serious weakness of mine. Hope you still plan on trying to come to Louisville when i get there in July. hugs.

I was thinking you might call it the HWP but AWP works too. :)

Mmmm... cookies!

I made a batch of sausage balls this afternoon, then cooked a meatloaf per Knight's suggestion for dinner this evening. Yummo!

(Isn't this the perfect icon for this post? Cookies AND poly in one!)

I can't read my whole flist anymore either. I have some very prolific writers on my flist, my reading speed isn't great, and my life is just very, very full. But, I SKIM! And hopefully, I don't miss anything important, because my friends do matter to me, so if ever you post something super important and I don't respond, shoot me a note! I want to know about it!!!

Oh, I've tried all sorts of things - but when I was over 700 entries behind, I realized I wasn't going to get caught up at my current amount of free time.

I like the choice of icon.

H? Humans? You would exclude Dizzy and Flood? ;)

I made Spritz, but Matt declared them too bland.

I made Spritz, but Flar thought they were too bland. I prefers Traveling cookies, which have a butterscotch taste, and toll-free cookies, which are chocolate chip without the chocolate chip.

I've been updating my calendar, and was meaning to email you about your trip. What are the dates?

Thanks! So far, it's a slow, but steady loss. :)

Ooh, ooh — I'm Anybody!

I'm glad Flar can still eat cookies. :)

Don't know why I was logged-off...grumblegrumble...

Oh, but that makes the "I'm Anybody" even more fun sweetie! The party is family, so as long as you and Charlie are okay with keeping track of Caspian, he's welcome too.
