Situation: Normal

Wednesday, Jul 07

The sun is shining! We are actually having a summer this year after all. Yee-HAW!

Sadie-beagle has been under the weather–tummy trouble and the like. She’s been to the vet and has medicine. It worries her mama (me) when she’s sick. She’s such a sweet soul–love and food. Those are Sadie’s priorities. She’s 10 years old now, and graying around the muzzle and the face, and we’re cutting back on her exercise now that she’s holding at a good weight.

One of these days, I hope to be able to say that I’M holding at a good weight. I am really tired of the whole up-and-down thing, but the new diet (thing that must not be mentioned) is going very well. I’ve adjusted to it, and I find it much easier than always fretting over whether I should or should not eat something. Rather than feeling deprived, I feel relieved, because I’m finally doing something about the problem. I WILL be both a reasonably slender person (no illusions about looking the way I did in high school) AND a nonsmoker.

I might have mentioned that I’ve been off cigarettes for more than a year now, but I recently had another bout of cravings, for whatever reasons. NO WAY I’m going through all of THAT again. I bought myself some patches, and I’m going the full route.

Today, more writing! I love the new book. Closing in on the ending now, and that’s always exciting.

And that’s the news from my kitchen table.
