A Bit of This, Some of That

Bullet point blog. 😉

  • So….still feeling off but managed to go into work yesterday. As the day got busier, I became more tired, and as today is the busiest day of our month, I opted out. Eating only popsicles and crackers doesn’t lend one much energy, suffice it to say.
  • It’s the 26th; there is still time to donate to my friend’s Avon 39 Walk, and I’m still happily #dryjuly -ing my way through life. Yay! I had every intention of saving what I would have spent on booze this month and donating it, but I’ve ended up taking so much time out of work that it all went to bills instead. I still have time, so next month I will donate.
  • As I look at the bullet points, I’m reminded of this blog post, Dear Blogger, that totally cracked me up.
  • What are your thoughts on newsletters? I have mixed feelings: many want you to sign up and receive a free something for doing so, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you want to read more of their blog/newsletters in the future, right? There may just be something in that one particular post that caught your interest, right? I have a newsletter (though I haven’t written anything in it in a while) and I’m deciding whether to continue with it or not.
  • Recently, two well-known women’s Facebook accounts have been removed or frozen (I think there was a third, but I can’t remember who it is); Beth Owl’s Daughter, and Pixie Lighthorse. It all has to do with FB’s random “that’s not your real name” policy, and as we all know how I feel about FB, I chose to delete my account this morning, after posting that I would last night. I woke to this, and have been laughing ever since. I wasn’t that bad, but I’m sure I was close.;) It’s not the people; it’s the platform and their practices (such as were mentioned in Pixie’s blog). I’m not sure why this video isn’t showing up on its own, but check it out anyway!

    I’d like to be in on your newsletter. I hope you are feeling better as each day goes by. You really need to drink a lot of water to help wash the effects of whatever it was out of your system. I don’t care if the u/s didn’t show much of anything, I’d bet money on gall bladder/bilary duct inflammation. Be selective about what you eat, small amounts, etc. Your body is telling you what not to put into it I think. Anything that makes you wince when you think of eating/preparing it is not something you should be eating. I think you will be getting some very strong reactions like this – desperately needing some food/fluids – being repulsed by others. Pay attention to this. It’s important. Thinkng of you,

      I think so, too. And I’m still pretty much eating popsicles and crackers, with some applesauce thrown in.

      I’ll post the link to the newsletter; it’s in a post earlier this year, but I’m on my phone right now.
